Mediware Delivers Record Revenue and Doubles Earnings in FY 2010

Acquisitions Complement Core Business to Achieve Strong Results

LENEXA, KS--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) - Mediware Information Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEDW) today reported that revenues for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2010 were $13.3 million, a 25 percent increase over the $10.6 million reported for the fourth quarter one year ago. Fourth-quarter earnings per diluted share rose to $0.12, a 71 percent increase over the $0.07 per diluted share reported in the same period in fiscal 2009.

For the full fiscal year Mediware reported revenues of $47.6 million, a 17 percent increase over the $40.7 million reported for fiscal year 2009. Full year earnings per diluted share were $0.41, more than doubling the $0.20 per diluted share generated a year ago.

"Our medication management products, along with our acquisitions, were the primary drivers behind our revenue growth," said Thomas Mann, Mediware's president and chief executive officer. "While delivering strong operating results, we also invested heavily in future growth by increasing our R&D spend by nearly a million dollars."

Mediware's acquisition activity continued during the fiscal year and complemented the Company's growth strategies. This included the December 14, 2009 acquisitions of Healthcare Automation, Inc. (HAI) and Advantage Reimbursement, Inc. (ARI). In March 2010 Mediware also acquired Knowledge-Forge, Inc., a provider of compliance management and e-learning technologies to blood centers and hospital blood banks. Knowledge-Forge's product, which is uniquely positioned for FDA-regulated environments, has already been integrated with key blood center focused products and is being marketed as KnowledgeTrak.

Other highlights for the year include:

  • Increased cash by $2.5 million to $23.3 million;
  • Expanded WORx behavioral health sales with the addition of five state hospitals;
  • Launched InSight Performance Management add-on solutions for existing blood and medication management products;
  • Increased BloodSafe sales and implementations;
  • Added a senior vice president to focus on business development; and
  • Launched Alternate Care Solutions to focus expertise in home care services.
