Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

On August 3, 2023, Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that it will adjust its approach to guidance related to deconversion revenue starting with fiscal year 2024.

Deconversion revenue is typically recognized when one of the Company’s customers agrees to be acquired by another financial institution, resulting in the termination of the customer’s contract with the Company and the payment of a deconversion fee. The Company’s recognition of deconversion revenue is driven by factors outside the Company’s control, and this revenue does not represent the true operations of the Company’s ongoing business of providing services to customers. As a result, the Company excludes deconversion revenue from non-GAAP revenue reported in its quarterly and annual earnings releases.

Previous annual deconversion revenue guidance was based on a combined estimate of recent prior historical results, known activity at the beginning of a fiscal year, and estimates of economic conditions for future financial institution consolidation. Management believes the inherent unpredictability of financial institution industry consolidation will continue to create forecasting volatility. Given the size of deconversion fees, the new approach aims to create a reasonable baseline while retaining focus on the Company’s continuing operations.

For fiscal year 2024 annual guidance, deconversion revenue will be estimated at $16.0 million, approximating the lowest actual recent annual historical result.

Approximately 10 days prior to each quarterly earnings release, the Company will pre-release on Form 8-K the actual quarterly deconversion revenue. In each subsequent quarterly earnings press release, full year guidance will be adjusted to reflect the actual year-to-date deconversion revenue combined with the remaining quarterly estimates.

The fiscal 2024 deconversion revenue guidance estimate will be lower than actual fiscal 2023 deconversion revenue, resulting in a negative impact on fiscal 2024 GAAP EPS guidance at a rate of approximately $0.01, per million dollars of deconversion revenue. As fiscal 2024 progresses, it is anticipated, but not guaranteed, that this negative impact will be reduced, eliminated, or even turned positive, as deconversion revenue is realized. The Company’s goal in making this change is to focus guidance on its actual continuing operations, rather than one-time deconversion fees that are outside of the Company’s control, difficult to accurately estimate, and do not best represent the Company’s ongoing operations.

In future years, the Company may change the amount of estimated deconversion revenue initially included in the guidance for such fiscal year or the method of guidance presentation.
