CSI Reports Record Third Quarter Revenues and Net Income

Revenues Increase for 38th Consecutive Quarter

PADUCAH, Ky., Dec. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI) today reported record revenues and net income for the fiscal third quarter and nine months ended November 30, 2013.

Third quarter revenues rose 7.0% to $53.1 million in fiscal 2014 compared with $49.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.  Third quarter net income increased 1.9% to $6.7 million, and diluted net income per share rose 4.4% to $0.47, compared with $6.6 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

"CSI marked its 38th consecutive quarter of revenue growth at November 30, 2013," stated Chief Executive Officer Steven A. Powless.  "We benefited from higher processing revenues generated from our core processing customers and higher other revenues due to increased demand for our mobile and Internet banking solutions as well as record transaction volume from our regulatory compliance services. 

"We expect to report continued revenue growth in the fourth quarter based on our pipeline of new business, high contract renewal rates and growth in transaction volume," Powless continued.  "We believe CSI is positioned well to drive future revenue growth through our expanded sales and marketing programs. During the first nine months of fiscal 2014, we invested $9.3 million in new hardware and software to support our continued growth in transaction volume.  We expect these investments in hardware, software, sales and marketing programs to be major drivers for our continued growth next year."

During the third quarter, CSI's Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.16 per share.  The dividend was paid on December 26, 2013, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on December 2, 2013. 

Third Quarter Results

Third quarter consolidated revenues rose 7.0% to $53.1 million compared with $49.6 million for the third quarter ended November 30, 2012.  Processing revenues increased 4.5% to $33.1 million compared with $31.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.  The growth was primarily driven by the addition of new customers, cross-sales to existing customers and increases in transaction volumes from existing customers, partially offset by the effect of lost business. Processing revenues included early contract termination fees of $957,000 for the third quarter and $2.7 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 compared with $131,000 for the third quarter and $236,000 for the first nine months of fiscal 2013. A substantial number of the former customers were acquired by non-customer financial institutions.

Other revenues rose 11.5% to $20.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 and accounted for 37.7% of total revenues compared with $17.9 million, or 36.2% of total revenues, in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.  The increase in other revenues was primarily due to growth in mobile and Internet banking services, growth in homeland security and fraud prevention services; higher eBusiness group revenues; and higher forms and envelope revenue.

Third quarter operating income rose 4.1% to $11.1 million compared with $10.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.  Operating margin for the third quarter was 20.9% compared with 21.5% in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.  The decrease in operating margin was due primarily to the ramp up of expenses related to our Strategic Growth Initiative launched in fiscal 2012, most of which have been incurred. In addition, expenses increased for equipment and travel related to the build out of our national sales team, increased fees related to growth in our ATM and debit card business, and higher network communications fees compared with the third quarter of last year.

Net income increased 1.9% to $6.7 million in the third quarter compared with $6.6 million in fiscal 2013.  Net income per fully diluted share rose 4.4% to $0.47 in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 compared with $0.45 in fiscal 2013.  Weighted average diluted shares outstanding were down 2.2% to 14.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 compared with the same period of fiscal 2013 due primarily to CSI shares repurchased under the Company's share repurchase program.  CSI repurchased 331,892 shares during the first nine months of fiscal 2014, including 118,116 in the third quarter.  CSI had approximately $3.9 million available under existing stock purchase authorizations outstanding as of November 30, 2013.

"CSI's balance sheet remained strong at November 30, 2013, with $3.8 million in cash and no long-term debt," Powless said.  "We used our strong cash flow to return a portion of our earnings to shareholders through cash dividends and repurchases of CSI stock.  We also continued to invest in new hardware and software to support our continued growth.  During the third quarter, we invested $2.5 million in new equipment and software, and we returned $6.1 million to shareholders in cash dividends and stock repurchases."

Nine Month Results

Consolidated revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 rose 8.6% to a record $158.8 million compared with $146.2 million for the same period in fiscal 2013.  CSI's increase in revenues represented growth in both processing and other revenues categories.

Operating income rose 6.0% to $31.8 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 compared with $30.0 million for the same period in fiscal 2013.  Operating margin was 20.0% in the first nine months of fiscal 2014 compared with 20.5% in the same period of fiscal 2013. 

Net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 rose 3.8% to $19.2 million compared with $18.5 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2013.  Net income per diluted share increased 5.6% to $1.33 for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 compared with $1.26 for the same period of fiscal 2013.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
File sync and share. Endpoint protection. Both are massive opportunities for today’s enterprise thanks to their business benefits and widespread user appeal. But one size does not fit all, especially user-adopted consumer technologies. Organizations must apply the right enterprise-ready tool for the job in order to properly manage and protect endpoint data. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Michael Bachman, Senior Enterprise Systems Architect at Code42, he will discuss how the synergy of an enterprise platform – where sync/share and endpoint protection converge – delivers incredible value for the business.
Simply defined the SDDC promises that you’ll be able to treat “all” of your IT infrastructure as if it’s completely malleable. That there are no restrictions to how you can use and assign everything from border controls to VM size as long as you stay within the technical capabilities of the devices. The promise is great, but the reality is still a dream for the majority of enterprises. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, EVP, Data Center Tech, at SUPERNAP, will cover where and how a business might benefit from SDDC and also why they should or shouldn’t attempt to adopt today.
Today, developers and business units are leading the charge to cloud computing. The primary driver: faster access to computing resources by using the cloud's automated infrastructure provisioning. However, fast access to infrastructure exposes the next friction point: creating, delivering, and operating applications much faster. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Bernard Golden, VP of Strategy at ActiveState, will discuss why solving the next friction point is critical for true cloud computing success and how developers and business units can leverage service catalogs, frameworks, and DevOps to achieve the true goal of IT: delivering increased business value through applications.
APIs came about to help companies create and manage their digital ecosystem, enabling them not only to reach more customers through more devices, but also create a large supporting ecosystem of developers and partners. While Facebook, Twitter and Netflix were the early adopters of APIs, large enterprises have been quick to embrace the concept of APIs and have been leveraging APIs as a connective tissue that powers all interactions between their customers, partners and employees. As enterprises embrace APIs, some very specific Enterprise API Adoption patterns and best practices have started emerging. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will talk about the most common enterprise API patterns and will discuss how enterprises can successfully launch an API program.
MapDB is an Apache-licensed open source database specifically designed for Java developers. The library uses the standard Java Collections API, making it totally natural for Java developers to use and adopt, while scaling database size from GBs to TBs. MapDB is very fast and supports an agile approach to data, allowing developers to construct flexible schemas to exactly match application needs and tune performance, durability and caching for specific requirements.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
