Quality Systems, Inc. Reports Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Results
July 26, 2012 at 5:00 AM EDT

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:QSII) announced today results for its fiscal 2013 first quarter ended June 30, 2012.

The Company reported record revenues of $118.3 million for the fiscal 2013 first quarter, an increase of 18 percent, compared with $100.4 million for the fiscal 2012 first quarter. Net income for the fiscal 2013 first quarter was $15.5 million, down 18 percent versus net income of $19.0 million for the same period a year ago. Fully diluted earnings per share for the fiscal 2013 first quarter was $0.26, a 19 percent decrease from $0.32 for the fiscal 2012 first quarter.

"Although we delivered record revenue for our fiscal 2013 first quarter driven by strong performance in our recurring revenue streams, our overall results were impacted by lower-than-expected revenue from large, higher margin software system sales. There are times when a limited number of these types of sales can influence performance in any given quarter," explained Steven T. Plochocki, president and chief executive officer.

"We remain confident about our future performance and prospects. However, due to evolving conditions affecting our industry and uncertainty in predicting future results, we are not affirming our previous guidance nor providing revised guidance at this time," Plochocki said.

This news release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including but not limited to, statements regarding future events, developments, the Company's future performance, as well as management's expectations, beliefs, intentions, plans, estimates or projections relating to the future (including, without limitation, statements concerning revenue, net income and earnings per share). Risks and uncertainties exist that may cause the results to differ materially from those set forth in these forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause the anticipated results to differ from those described in the forward-looking statements are set forth in Part I, Item A of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012, including but not limited to: the volume and timing of systems sales and installations; length of sales cycles and the installation process; the possibility that products will not achieve or sustain market acceptance; seasonal patterns of sales and customer buying behavior; impact of incentive payments under The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on sales and the ability of the Company to meet continued certification requirements; the development by competitors of new or superior technologies; the timing, cost and success or failure of new product and service introductions, development and product upgrade releases; undetected errors or bugs in software; product liability; changing economic, political or regulatory influences in the health-care industry; changes in product-pricing policies; availability of third-party products and components; competitive pressures including product offerings, pricing and promotional activities; the Company's ability or inability to attract and retain qualified personnel; possible regulation of the Company's software by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration; changes of accounting estimates and assumptions used to prepare the prior periods' financial statements; and general economic conditions. A significant portion of the Company's quarterly sales of software product licenses and computer hardware is concluded in the last month of a fiscal quarter, generally with a concentration of such revenues earned in the final ten business days of that month. Due to these and other factors, the Company's revenues and operating results are very difficult to forecast. A major portion of the Company's costs and expenses, such as personnel and facilities, are of a fixed nature and, accordingly, a shortfall or decline in quarterly and/or annual revenues typically results in lower profitability or losses. As a result, comparison of the Company's period-to-period financial performance is not necessarily meaningful and should not be relied upon as an indicator of future performance. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
