Quality Systems, Inc. Reports Record Fiscal 2012 Third Quarter Results
January 26, 2012 at 5:00 AM EST

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:QSII) announced today results for its fiscal 2012 third quarter ended December 31, 2011.

The Company reported record net revenues of $112.8 million for the fiscal 2012 third quarter, an increase of 23 percent when compared with $91.9 million for the fiscal 2011 third quarter. Net income for the fiscal 2012 third quarter reached a record $21.1 million, up 20 percent versus $17.5 million for the same period a year ago. Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.36 in the third quarter of fiscal 2012, versus $0.30 for the fiscal 2011 third quarter, up 20 percent.

"The record fiscal 2012 third quarter results can be attributed to the continued adoption of electronic health records by physicians, medical groups and hospitals. As the momentum continues and more practices transition to electronic-based solutions, Quality Systems is capturing additional market share. We now have entered the second year of the five-year stimulus period, which appears to be the most aggressive in terms of healthcare information technology adoption. Our quarterly results are indicative of the continued acceptance of our innovative solutions throughout the marketplace and across physician practices, small hospitals and dental groups," noted Steven T. Plochocki, Quality Systems' chief executive officer.

Quality Systems also announced that the Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of Seventeen and One-Half Cents ($0.175) per share on the Company's outstanding shares of Common Stock, payable to shareholders of record as of Tuesday, March 20, 2012 with an anticipated distribution date of April 5, 2012. The $0.175 per share cash dividend is consistent with the Company's current policy to pay a regular quarterly dividend on the Company's outstanding shares of Common Stock, subject to Board review and approval.

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 and net income). 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, 2011, 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.
