July 30, 2010 at 5:00 AM EDT

IRVINE, Calif., Jul 30, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:QSII) today announced the results of operations for its fiscal 2011 first quarter ended June 30, 2010.

The Company reported record net revenues of $82.9 million for the fiscal 2011 first quarter, an increase of 24% from $66.6 million in the same quarter last year. The Company reported net income of $12.1 million, up 17% versus $10.3 million in net income for the comparable period a year ago. Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.42 in the fiscal 2011 first quarter; an increase of 17% when compared with $0.36 fully diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of fiscal 2010. The fiscal 2011 first quarter results include amortization of approximately $0.8 million of acquired intangibles, compared with approximately $0.4 million for the same quarter a year ago.

The fiscal 2011 first quarter results included approximately $0.8 million in expenses related to the integration of the Company's previously acquired Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) entities, Healthcare Strategic Initiatives (HSI) and Practice Management Partners (PMP). Both of these acquisitions are now administered and aggregated in the Company's new NextGen Practice Solutions division.

"The Company continues to prepare for the expected incentives to be distributed from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Now that the requirements for defining Stage 1 Meaningful Use criteria have been completed, physicians and hospitals can feel comfortable and confident in moving ahead with their electronic health records (EHR) decisions," noted Steven T. Plochocki, chief executive officer.

"We are ready to accommodate these needs. As previously stated during the past several quarters, we have been aggressively preparing for this transition to an electronic-based healthcare system by continually investing in sales, marketing, implementation and training, enhancing our staff, structure, operations and technology. We are confident that NextGen Healthcare's novel technology, leading industry position and extensive educational offerings will prove beneficial to providers as they evaluate the options available in the marketplace and make their EHR selections," Plochocki concluded.

Quality Systems, Inc. also announced that the Company's Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of Thirty Cents ($0.30) per share on the Company's outstanding shares of Common Stock, payable to shareholders of record as of September 17, 2010, with an anticipated distribution date of October 5, 2010, pursuant to the Company's current policy to pay a regular quarterly dividend of Thirty Cents ($0.30) per share on the Company's outstanding shares of Common Stock, subject to further Board review and approval, and establishment of record and distribution dates by the Board prior to the declaration and payment of each such quarterly dividend.

This news release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. 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), are forward-looking statements within the meaning of these laws and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Management believes that these forward looking statements are reasonable and are based on reasonable assumptions and forecasts, however, undue reliance should not be placed on such statements that speak only as of the date hereof. Moreover, these forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, some of which are outlined below. As a result, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated by the forward-looking statements. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements are: 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; 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; uncertainties concerning threatened, pending and new litigation against the Company including related professional services fees; uncertainties concerning the amount and timing of professional fees incurred by the Company generally; changes of accounting estimates and assumptions used to prepare the prior periods' financial statements; general economic conditions; and the risk factors detailed from time to time in the Company's periodic reports and registration statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A significant portion of the Company's quarterly sales of software product licenses and computer hardware is concluded in the last month of the 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.
