Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2020 Results

- GAAP revenue increased 12% and operating income increased 14% for the quarter.
- Non-GAAP revenue increased 9% and operating income increased 9% for the quarter.
- GAAP EPS was $1.16 per diluted share for the quarter, compared to $1.08 in the prior year quarter.

MONETT, Mo., Nov. 4, 2019 /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 results for the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

GAAP Results for the Quarter

Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 increased to $438.0 million, a 12% improvement over the first quarter of fiscal 2019.  Operating income increased 14% to $118.2 million and net income increased 7% to $89.4 million, or $1.16 per diluted share, compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The increase in operating income was driven by organic growth in both our services and support and processing product lines and higher deconversion fees quarter over quarter.  The increase in net income is primarily attributable to the growth in our product lines and higher deconversion fees discussed above, partially offset by the increase in effective tax rate compared to the prior year quarter.

Non-GAAP Results for the Quarter

On an adjusted basis for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, revenue increased 9% compared to the prior year quarter to $420.7 million. Operating income increased 9% to $104.5 million (see Non-GAAP Impact of Deconversion Fees and Acquisitions on page 3).

According to David Foss, President and CEO, "We are very pleased to report another record quarter of revenue, operating income and net income.  Our sales teams again had a very strong quarter and demand for Jack Henry technology solutions continues to be high.  We recently hosted our two large annual client conferences and I was humbled once again by the high levels of customer satisfaction and engagement I witnessed at those events. I would like to thank all of our associates for their continued commitment to our customers and their ongoing success."

Operating Results

Revenue, operating expenses, operating income, and net income for the three months ended September 30, 2019, as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2018, were as follows:

  • The increased revenue in the services and support line for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was primarily due to organic growth in software usage and subscription fees within 'in-house support' revenue and data processing and hosting fees, which fall within our 'outsourcing and cloud' revenue stream. The increase in processing revenue was mainly driven by increased transaction volumes within the 'card' and 'remittance' components of processing revenue. Deconversion fees, which are included within services and support, increased $7.0 million compared to the first quarter of the prior year. Excluding deconversion fees from both periods, and revenue from the fiscal 2020 acquisition, total revenue increased 9% for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the same quarter of fiscal 2019.
  • For the first quarter of fiscal 2020, core segment revenue increased 12% to $155.9 million from $139.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2019. Payments segment revenue increased 12% to $149.7 million, from $134.2 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue from the complementary segment increased 11% to $117.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 from $105.7 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2019. Revenue in the corporate and other segment increased 12% to $15.2 million, compared to $13.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

  • Cost of revenue increased 12% for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019, but remained consistent as a percentage of revenue. Excluding costs related to deconversions and the fiscal 2020 acquisition, the cost of revenue increase was 11%. Overall, costs increased commensurate with increases in revenue.
  • Research and development expense increased 2% for the first quarter of fiscal 2020. This increase was primarily due to increased salary and personnel costs. Headcount increased 5% at September 30, 2019 compared to a year ago. The quarter remained consistent with the prior year as a percentage of total revenue.
  • Selling, general, and administrative expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 increased mainly due to increased salaries and benefits primarily due to a 2% increase in headcount over the prior year quarter and pay raises during the trailing twelve-month period. Selling, general, and administrative expense decreased as a percentage of revenue for the first quarter.
  • For the first quarter of fiscal 2020, operating income increased 14% to $118.2 million, or 27% of revenue, compared to $103.2 million, or 26% of revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

  • Provision for income taxes increased in the first quarter, with an effective tax rate at 24.6% of income before income taxes, compared to 19.2% for the same quarter of the prior year. The increase in the effective tax rate in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was primarily due to the change in the impact of share-based compensation quarter-over-quarter. A significant excess tax benefit was recognized in the prior year quarter from share-based compensation, and share-based compensation resulted in an excess tax deficiency in the current quarter.

According to Kevin Williams, CFO and Treasurer, "We had solid growth in every line of revenue in the quarter compared to the prior year. The increase in software usage and subscription revenue which carries high margins helped to offset the continued headwinds on our operating margin on a non-GAAP basis, created by the additional costs of our on-going migration of our debit and credit card transaction processing customers. Obviously, GAAP operating margins were up due to the increase in deconversion fees during the quarter. The impact of the stock-based compensation in the previous year quarter was the entire impact on the change in our effective tax rate compared to the prior year."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) is the term used to refer to the standard framework of guidelines for financial accounting in the United States.  GAAP includes the standards, conventions, and rules accountants follow in recording and summarizing transactions in the preparation of financial statements.  In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with GAAP, we have provided certain non-GAAP financial measures.

These non-GAAP measures include adjusted revenue and operating income.

We believe these non-GAAP measures help investors better understand the underlying fundamentals and true operations of our business.  The non-GAAP revenue and operating income presented eliminate items management believes are not indicative of the Company's operating performance.  Revenue increase/ decrease adjusts for one-time deconversion fees and contributions of current fiscal year acquisitions give investors further insight into our performance.  For these reasons, management also uses these non-GAAP measures in its assessment and management of the Company's performance.

Any non-GAAP measures should be considered in context with the GAAP financial presentation and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP measures.  Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to related GAAP measures are included.

Quarterly Conference Call

The company will hold a conference call on November 5, 2019; at 7:45 a.m. Central Time and investors are invited to listen at www.jackhenry.com.
