32% Increase in Revenue Over Q2 FY10
$134 Million Year-to-Date Bookings – Highest Level in Over Five Years
Double Digit Reduction in Corporate Expenses

COLUMBIA, Md., May 12, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integral Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:ISYS) ("Company") today reported financial results for its fiscal quarter ended April 1, 2011.

Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 was $53.3 million, an increase of 32.4% compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2010. Gross margin was 28.0%, compared to 45.0% for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010. The Company's operating segments contributed $7.7 million in adjusted EBITDA during the second quarter of fiscal year 2011. Corporate overhead costs for the quarter were $6.5 million, reflecting expense reduction of $3.3 million compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2010. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 was $1.2 million compared to $2.2 million in adjusted EBITDA generated in the second quarter of fiscal year 2010.1

Second quarter fiscal year 2011 loss from operations was $2.0 million, compared to income from operations of $0.3 million reported for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010. Net loss for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 was $2.1 million, or a loss of $0.12 per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.1 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, reported for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010.

"We delivered strong top-line results in the second quarter and recorded over $66 million of bookings in the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, adding 8% to our total contract backlog," said Paul Casner, Integral Systems' Chief Executive Officer. "In the first six months of fiscal year 2011, we recorded bookings of $134 million versus revenue of $97.8 million, resulting in a book-to-bill ratio of 1.4 and a total contract backlog of $232.5 million. This is our strongest midyear position in recent memory."

Casner continued, "Our second quarter results reflect continued top-line growth across all segments and strong sales driven by our market-leading technologies, systems and services. Despite the delays resulting from the government budget process and the burden associated with our continuing review of strategic alternatives, we recovered much of the delayed Products' revenue from the first quarter and saw strong bookings across the enterprise. Gross margins were lower than they were in the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 due to large hardware deliveries on government contracts and engineering investments associated with anticipated high margin production opportunities."

Christopher Roberts, Integral Systems' Chief Financial Officer elaborated, "Our corporate expense reduction plan is showing results. During the second quarter, we made significant changes in our corporate expense structure, reducing expenditures by 18% compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 and by 34% compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2010. We continue to take appropriate actions to streamline our operations throughout the enterprise and drive improved profitability."

Items affecting earnings in the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 include:

  • Lower gross margins due to
  • $10.7 million in hardware deliveries on an existing contract with the U.S. Air Force at margins significantly below the Company's average gross margin
  • $1.9 million in low margin non-recurring engineering work scope on several new production contracts in the RT Logic and Integral Systems SATCOM Solutions divisions
  • $1.9 million in continued investment in Integral Systems Service Solutions (IS3)
  • $0.6 million in severance, stock-based compensation stemming from corporate headcount reductions
  • $0.4 million in expenses related to real estate consolidation including
  • $1.9 million reversal of lease loss reserve for remaining Lanham, Md. facility
  • $1.5 million lease loss reserve against Columbia, Md. facility
  • $0.8 million in real estate broker and relocation expense

"Integral Systems continues to build positive momentum as indicated by our solid bookings and growing backlog. Our investment in advanced technologies and our new Services line of business are paving the way for sustained growth and improved profitability. We have made significant changes to our cost structure and expect further changes to positively impact profitability in the second half of the year," Casner concluded.

The Company will not host an investor call due to its previously disclosed decision to consider strategic alternatives. On January 13, 2011, the Company announced that it had retained a financial advisor in connection with its consideration of strategic alternatives to enhance shareholder value, including acquisitions, mergers, sale of the Company or other transactions. At this time, Integral Systems does not intend to disclose further developments during this process, unless and until its Board of Directors approves a specific transaction or otherwise concludes the review of strategic alternatives. Integral Systems' Board of Directors, after the consideration of the Company's strategic alternatives, may determine that none of these alternatives are appropriate at this time. Therefore, it should not be inferred that this process will result in any specific transaction. 

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure, defined as net income (loss) before interest income, interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation, amortization expense and non-cash stock compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent income or cash flows as defined by GAAP. Integral Systems discloses Adjusted EBITDA because it is a financial measure commonly used in the Company's industry. Because management believes that Adjusted EBITDA facilitates internal comparisons of the Company's historical financial position and operating performance on a more consistent basis, the Company also uses Adjusted EBITDA in measuring performance relative to that of its competitors and in evaluating acquisition opportunities.

Adjusted EBITDA is not meant to be considered a substitute or replacement for net income as determined in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company's management regularly uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the Company's business and make operating decisions.
