First Quarter Highlights:
First Quarter Financial Review:
The Company's revenue was $7,561,000 for the first quarter ended September 30, 2013 as compared to $6,483,000 for the first quarter ended September 30, 2012, an increase of $1,078,000 or 16.6%. Operating income for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, decreased by $57,000 to $857,000 as compared to operating income of $914,000, a decrease of 6.2%, for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, increased by $68,000 to $692,000 as compared to $624,000, an increase of 10.9%, over the same period a year ago. Basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.05 as compared to $0.05 per share, for the same period a year ago.
Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $4,246,000 or 56.2% as compared to $3,773,000 or 58.2% for the three months ended September 30, 2012. The decrease in gross profit was the result of lower perpetual license revenue as we transition our business to a Software as a Service (SaaS) model.
The Company's revenue from its U.S. and U.K. operations was $2,268,000 and $5,293,000, respectively, compared to $1,930,000 and $4,553,000, respectively, during the same period in 2012. U.S. recurring revenue increased $228,000 or 19.3% to $1,411,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 from $1,183,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. U.K. recurring revenue increased $336,000 or 9.7% to $3,787,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 from $3,451,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.
Commenting on the first quarter of fiscal 2014, MAM Software Group's CEO, Michael Jamieson, said:
"During this quarter, we have continued to make progress towards our strategic goals, building on the results achieved in fiscal 2013. We have maintained investment in our cloud solutions as we transition our business to a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. Although the SaaS model will result in lower reported revenue and cash flow in the year of sale, it should produce an increased and more predictable future revenue stream and cash flow. We believe that the introduction of our Autowork Online and Autopart Online SaaS solutions into the larger North American market will lead to a positive impact on our recurring revenues."
"Although we incurred the negative impact of increased investment and lower perpetual license revenue, we have continued to achieve positive financial results. Our Company experienced both an increase in revenues of $1,078,000 and profit margins of $473,000 when compared to the three months ended September 30, 2012. Our Company's recurring revenues increased in the U.S. to $1,411,000 from $1,183,000, an increase of $228,000 or 19.3%, for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 as compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Our Company's U.K. based recurring revenues increased to $3,787,000 from $3,451,000, an increase of $336,000 or 9.7%, for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 as compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2012."
"The quarter ended September 30, 2013 produced net income of $692,000 as compared to $624,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Furthermore, the first quarter produced an Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) of $1,384,000 as compared to $1,316,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. As we continue to execute on our strategic goals we anticipate an EBITDA (non-GAAP) of approximately $5,000,000 for Fiscal 2014."
"We were particularly pleased with the progress that we made with our 'cloud' based installer application, Autowork Online, in the U.K. Subscribers to Autowork Online have increased each month of this quarter and now total 2,840. Revenues from Autowork Online increased to $486,000 or £313,501 from $332,000 or £210,049, an increase of $154,000 or 46.4% for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 as compared to the quarter ended. September 30, 2012. Autowork Online has been localized for the North American market and continues to be introduced and demonstrated to potential U.S. partners."
"We have also introduced Autopart Online, a SaaS version of our on-premise software for auto parts distributors and retailers. Autopart Online does not require the customer to purchase hardware and software licenses upfront, they subscribe to the software and purchase the professional services required to implement the system. We believe that removing the capital investment associated with on-premise software will lead to an increased interest in our Autopart Online solution."
"Our goals for the balance of the fiscal year include further penetrating into the U.K. market with our SaaS solutions, establishing a foothold in the U.S. market with the same 'cloud' based products, and localizing our Autocat+ Data as a Service (DaaS) solution for introduction into the U.S. market. We believe that our suite of modern business solutions, built by a team of experienced professionals using the latest technology, will continue to be the differentiating factor for our business."
"For the balance of the 2014 fiscal year we anticipate further investment in our sales, marketing and professional services departments. We believe these expenditures will result in increased revenues in Fiscal 2014, but will have a negative impact on profits and cash flow. The investments we are making in Fiscal 2014 should contribute to increased growth and profitability in Fiscal 2015."
The Company also reiterated that it currently has $2,688,644 left on its previously approved stock buyback program, which it intends to use selectively as circumstances and market conditions warrant.
As of October 31, 2013, MAM had approximately 14,481,437 shares of common stock outstanding. The outstanding shares include 1,698,505 shares that vest based on the market price of the Company's common shares and these shares have not vested.
