"While our first quarter is perennially slow and this year was no exception, we were pleased with the progress we made on a number of fronts. On a same treatment basis, profit would have increased by approximately $450K over last year. We increased revenue and profit while continuing to take a disciplined approach to our operating expenses resulting in a small increase in Profit from Operations in spite of the end of our R&D capitalization. Our Q4 of fiscal 2016 marked the end of the multi-year rewrite of our legacy systems into a modern web architecture and hence, the end of our capitalization program." said Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS Inc. "We signed two new accounts in the quarter including a key account in the heavy equipment market and had a number of successful go-lives in the quarter ranging from hospitals to 3PL's and heavy equipment dealers and covering a range of geographies including the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the U.K. Looking forward, we are confident we are on track to meet our growth targets. With solid bookings and a solid sales pipeline, we expect continued progress through the rest of the year."

The Company has declared a dividend of $0.03 per share to be paid on October 7, 2016 to shareholders of record at the close of business on September 23, 2016.
