  • Gross margin in Q2 2016 was flat at 49% compared to 49% in Q2 2015.
  • Recurring revenue on an annualized basis grew to $23.0M, an 18% improvement compared to the end of Q2 2015, representing 37% of the last 12 months trailing revenue.
  • EBITDA of $1.2M for Q2 2016 remained the same compared to Q2 2015.
  • Profit from operations was $501K in Q2 2016, compared to $532K in Q2 2015.

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $9.1M at the end of Q2 2016 compared to $10.8M at the end of Q4 2015.

"This quarter's results begin to demonstrate the strong operating leverage we've built into our business model, as our costs remained flat sequentially while total revenue has grown to record levels", said Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS Inc. "With $13.4 million in contracts booked in the quarter, we're pleased to see the benefits of our decision to increase our investment in sales and to strategically split the teams late last year. Contract bookings growth was fueled by major wins in both our healthcare vertical and complex distribution, where we closed a large multi-warehouse deal with great potential for future site expansion as well as a large well-known hospital network in the U.S. Our growing pipeline combined with strong bookings and robust order backlog gives us great visibility into the second half of fiscal 2016 and confidence in our ability to continue to deliver solid results."

  • Revenue for the first six months of fiscal 2016 was $30.7M, up 16% from $26.6M in the first half of last fiscal year.

  • Net profit for the first six months of fiscal 2015 was $436K, or $0.04 per share, compared to $753K, or $0.07 per share, for the same period of the prior fiscal year.
  • Total contract bookings for the first six months of fiscal 2016 totaled $20.1M, which includes the addition of three new IDN's.
