MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Nov. 30, 2017) - TECSYS Inc.

  • Proprietary products revenue decreased 8% to $1.6 million, compared to Q2 2017.
  • Cloud, maintenance and subscription revenue increased to $6.4 million, 4% higher than $6.2 million for Q2 2017.
  • Professional services revenue was $7.9 million, 22% higher than $6.5 million in Q2 2017.
  • Total gross profit margin was 52%, compared to 50% in Q2 2017.
  • Operating expenses decreased to $7.8 million, compared to $8.0 million for Q2 2017.
  • Profit from operations was $1.6 million, compared to $320,000 for the same period in fiscal 2017.
  • Profit was $1.4 million or $0.10 per share in Q2 2018 compared to $206,000 or $0.02 per share for Q2 2017.
  • EBITDA was $2.2 million, compared to $935,000 for Q2 2017.
  • Total contract value bookings amounted to $11.5 million, compared to $10.9 million for Q2 2017.
  • Cash and cash equivalents, as well as redeemable long-term investments, totaled $22.5 million at the end of Q2 2018 compared to $13.5M at the end of Q4 2017.

"In the second quarter of fiscal 2018, solid bookings and revenue growth combined with flat to declining expenses led to a surge in profitability." said Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS Inc. "The quarter was also a validation of our strategy to deploy one common technology platform that is robust and versatile into two diverse sectors where each has a different sales cycle and is affected differently by external events. In the quarter, our complex distribution business achieved solid growth in terms of both new contract and base account sales and added accounts in floor finishing products, heavy equipment and MRO. Our healthcare business continued to be constrained in the quarter by uncertainty around U.S. healthcare legislation, however this situation seems to be improving based on orders signed early in the third quarter. Our pipeline and general business activity in healthcare remains strong. The board has approved an increase of the quarterly dividend of 11% to $0.05."
