MONETT, Mo., Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: JKHY), a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry, today announced second quarter fiscal 2014 results with a 9% increase in revenue, an increase of 9% in gross profit and a 33% increase in net income over the second quarter of fiscal 2013.  For the first six months of fiscal 2014, revenue increased 9%, with an increase of 10% in gross profit, and an increase of 25% in net income compared to last year.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2013, the company generated total revenue of $302.5 million compared to $278.7 million in the same quarter a year ago.  Gross profit increased to $132.8 million from $122.2 million in the second quarter of last fiscal year.  Net income in the current quarter was $54.0 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, compared to $40.5 million, or $0.47 per diluted share in the same quarter a year ago.

For the six months ended December 31, 2013, total revenue of $598.2 million was generated compared to $549.7 million in the first six months of fiscal 2013. Gross profit increased to $261.5 million compared to $238.2 million during the same period last fiscal year. Net income for the six months of fiscal 2014 totaled $103.8 million, or $1.21 per diluted share, compared to $83.0 million, or $0.96 per diluted share for the same six months in fiscal 2013.

According to Jack Prim, CEO, "We are pleased with the balanced performance in the quarter with continued strong organic revenue growth and further improvement in operating margins.  Strong sales performances across all brands bode well for the future."

Operating Results

"For the quarter and first six months ended December 31, 2014, we had record revenue, gross profit and operating income compared to any respective periods in our history," stated Tony Wormington, President.  "The primary driver continues to be our Support and Services line of revenue, which grew organically 10% for both the quarter and year to date, compared to the prior year periods. Electronic payments and OutLink (data and item processing) continue to lead the growth within this line of revenue with 11% and 12% growth in the quarter, respectively, and 12% and 13% growth year to date, respectively.  The growth is driven by new sales, cross-selling and growth in both transactions and number of accounts processed."

License revenue for the second quarter decreased to $12.9 million, or 4% of second quarter total revenue, from $13.2 million, or 5% of second quarter total revenue a year ago.  Support and service revenue increased 10% to $274.3 million, or 91% of total revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 from $250.3 million, or 90% of total revenue for the same period a year ago.  Within support and service revenue, electronic payment services (which include ATM/debit/credit card transaction processing, bill payment, remote deposit capture and ACH transaction processing services) had the largest growth of $11.7 million or 12% in the second quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago.  Hardware sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 increased 1% to $15.4 million, from $15.2 million in the second quarter of last fiscal year.  Hardware revenue was 5% of total revenue in both periods.

For the six months ended December 31, 2013, license revenue decreased 5% to $24.7 million from $26.1 million a year ago. License revenue was 5% of total revenue last year, dropping to 4% in the current fiscal year.  There was growth in all components of support and service revenue in the first six months of fiscal 2014 resulting in a 10% increase in support and service revenue, which expanded to $543.8 million in the first six months of fiscal 2014 from $494.9 million for the same period a year ago. Support and service as a percentage of total revenue increased to 91% of fiscal 2014 year-to-date revenue from 90% last year. Hardware sales in the first six months of fiscal 2014 increased 3% to $29.7 million, or 5% of total revenue, from $28.7 million, or 5% of total revenue, in the same period last year.

Cost of sales for the second quarter increased 8% to $169.7 million from $156.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.  Gross profit increased 9% to $132.8 million for the second quarter this fiscal year from $122.2 million last year.  Gross margin was 44% in both periods.

Cost of sales for the six months ended December 31, 2013 increased 8%, to $336.6 million from $311.5 million for the period ended December 31, 2012. Gross profit for the first six months of fiscal 2014 increased 10% to $261.5 million compared to $238.2 million last year. Gross margin was 44% for the six months ended December 31, 2013 compared to 43% for the same period last year.

Gross margin on license revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was 93% compared to 91% in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.  For the six months ended December 31, 2013 gross margin on license was 90% compared to 91% for the six months ended December 31, 2012. The changes in license gross margin are the result of fluctuations in the sales mix of products delivered.

Support and service gross margin was 42% in the second quarter of both fiscal 2014 and fiscal 2013. The support and service gross margin was 43% for the six month periods ending December 31, 2013 compared to 42% in the same period last year. Hardware gross margins decreased for the second quarter to 29% from 31% for the same quarter last year.   Year-to-date hardware gross margins remained consistent at 27% for the six month periods in both this fiscal year and last fiscal year.

Operating expenses decreased 21% in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to the same quarter a year ago primarily due to the prior year expenses related to the flooding at our Lyndhurst, New Jersey item processing center. Selling and marketing expenses increased 6% in the current year second quarter to $21.1 million, or 7% of total revenue, from $19.9 million, or 7% of prior year second quarter revenue.  Research and development expenses increased 3% to $16.1 million, or 5% of total revenue, from $15.7 million, or 6% of total revenue, for the second quarter in fiscal 2013.  General and administrative costs decreased 55% in the current year second quarter to $12.1 million, or 4% of total revenue, from $27.2 million, or 10% of total revenue, in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.  Excluding the Lyndhurst, New Jersey expenses and income from both periods, general and administrative costs increased 11%* for the second quarter compared to the same period last year.

According to Kevin Williams, CFO, "Our results for the quarter were slightly ahead of our internal plan without the unusual event that occurred in the quarter.  Normal operations produced diluted earnings per share of $0.61, which was increased by $0.02 from the final insurance settlement related to prior year's natural disaster. Prior year normal operations produced diluted earnings per share of $0.54, which was increased $0.03 to the $0.57 Non-GAAP number disclosed below from the release of some tax benefits in that quarter, and negatively impacted by $0.10 for the impact of the natural disaster that occurred during the quarter, which resulted in actual GAAP results of $0.47 earnings per share for the quarter."
