ALPHARETTA, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Agilysys, Inc. (NASDAQ: AGYS), a leading global provider of hospitality software solutions that deliver High Return Hospitality, today reported operating results for its fiscal 2024 second quarter ending September 30, 2023.

Summary of Fiscal 2024 Second Quarter Financial Results

  • Total net revenue increased 22.8% to a record $58.6 million, compared to total net revenue of $47.7 million in the comparable prior-year period.
  • Recurring revenue (comprising subscription and maintenance charges) was a record $34.2 million, or 58.4% of total net revenue compared to $29.0 million, or 60.8% of total net revenue for the same period in fiscal 2023. Subscription revenue increased 29.1% year-over-year and was 53.6% of total recurring revenue compared to 48.9% of total recurring revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2023.
  • Gross margin was 59.9% compared to 61.5% in the comparable prior-year period.
  • Net income attributable to common shareholders was $4.1 million, or $0.16 per diluted share compared to $3.1 million, or $0.12 per diluted share in the comparable prior-year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was $8.1 million compared to $7.4 million in the comparable prior-year period (reconciliation included in financial tables).
  • Adjusted diluted EPS (non-GAAP) was $0.25 per share compared to $0.24 per share in the comparable prior-year period (reconciliation included in financial tables).
  • Free cash flow (non-GAAP) in the fiscal 2024 second quarter was $2.5 million compared to free cash flow of $2.3 million in the fiscal 2023 second quarter (reconciliation included in financial tables). Ending cash balance was $107.4 million, compared to ending cash balance of $112.8 million as of fiscal 2023 year-end.

Ramesh Srinivasan, President and CEO of Agilysys, commented, “We are pleased with the strong fiscal year 2024 second quarter July-September results highlighted by year-over-year 22.8% quarter revenue and 29.1% subscription revenue growth, driving both to record high levels. Adjusted EBITDA was 13.7% of revenue, higher than previous expectations going into the fiscal year. We are doing well managing through the current phase of increased investment requirements which are designed to drive significant further revenue growth in the medium-term. We now expect adjusted EBITDA for the full fiscal year to be 14% of revenue, higher than previous guidance.

“Our implementation efficiency continues to improve as the re-engineered core products and newly developed experience enhancer add-on software modules are performing well in the field and creating considerable value for customers. Excellent selling success momentum highlighted by one of our best sales quarters and the best ever first half of fiscal year April to September sales measured in annual contract value terms drove aggregate recurring revenue, product and services backlog to a near record level.

“Overall, we are well positioned to do better than guidance levels provided at the beginning of the fiscal year. We now expect fiscal year 2024 revenue to be between $235M and $238M inclusive of 28% subscription revenue growth. Given the successful investments in product innovation during the past few years, we think our ability to fulfill the growing hospitality industry need for quantum technology improvements to improve operational efficiencies, staff and guest experiences will help keep up and build on our current business momentum. We remain bullish and confident of our short, medium and long term prospects.”

Fiscal 2024 Outlook

We are raising full year fiscal 2024 revenue guidance to be $235 to $238 million, increasing subscription revenue growth guidance for the full 2024 fiscal year to 28% year-over-year and increasing Adjusted EBITDA expectations for fiscal 2024 to 14% of revenue.

Dave Wood, Chief Financial Officer, commented, “Successful implementations of a couple of larger projects contributed to high sequential subscription revenue growth this quarter. The first half of the fiscal year has been stronger than expected on the back of our sales investments and product innovation. We are pleased to be in a position to raise our full year guidance of total revenue, subscription revenue growth and Adjusted EBITDA levels. We continue to be disciplined with our growth management efforts.”

Forward-Looking Language

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as: “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “goal,” “seek,” “believe,” “project,” “estimate,” “expect,” “strategy,” “future,” “likely,” “may,” “should,” “will” and similar references to future periods. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, our revenue, subscription revenue and Adjusted EBITDA guidance for 2024 fiscal year.

Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based only on our current beliefs, expectations and assumptions regarding the future of our business, future plans and strategies, projections, anticipated events and trends, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control. Our actual results and financial condition may differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Therefore, you should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause our actual results and financial condition to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements include, among others, the impact macroeconomic factors may have on the overall business environment, our ability to achieve our fiscal 2024 guidance, future revenue growth, the company's ability to convert the backlog into revenue, and the risks described in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company’s reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q. Additionally, references to "record" financial and business levels in this document refer only to the time period after Agilysys made the transformation to an entirely hospitality focused software solutions company in FY2014.

Any forward-looking statement made by us in this press release is based only on information currently available to us and speaks only as of the date on which it is made. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement that may be made from time to time, whether written or oral, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement the unaudited consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP in this press release, certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the SEC rules are used. These non-GAAP financial measures include EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted basic earnings per share, adjusted diluted earnings per share and free cash flow. Management believes that such information can enhance investors’ understanding of the Company’s ongoing operations.

The Company has included the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: adjusted net income, adjusted basic earnings per share and adjusted diluted earnings per share. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide valuable insight into the Company’s overall profitability from core operations before certain non-cash and non-recurring charges. The Company defines adjusted net income as net income before amortization expense (including amortization of developed technology), share-based compensation, convertible preferred stock issuance costs, and one-time charges including severance and other charges, impairments and legal settlements, less the related income tax effect of these adjustments, as applicable, and defines adjusted earnings per share as adjusted net income divided by basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

See the accompanying tables below for the definitions and reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most closely related GAAP measures.
