Enghouse Releases Fourth Quarter and Year End Results, Completing Another Strong Year




MARKHAM, ONTARIO — (Marketwired) — 12/15/16 — Enghouse Systems Limited (TSX: ENGH) today announced its fourth quarter (unaudited) and year-end financial results for the period ended October 31, 2016.

Revenue increased by 10.3% to $308.0 million for the fiscal year, compared to revenue of $279.3 million in the previous fiscal year, resulting in another record year for the Company. Income from operating activities was $81.9 million compared to $67.3 million last year, an increase of 21.8%. Net income for the fiscal year was $47.3 million or $1.74 per diluted share compared to $31.4 million or $1.17 per diluted share in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal year was $86.7 million or $3.19 per diluted share compared to $71.9 million or $2.69 per diluted share last year, an increase of 20.6%.

Operating expenses before special charges related to restructuring of acquired operations were $127.8 million for the fiscal year or 41.5% of revenue compared to $121.4 million (43.4%) in the prior fiscal year as a result of efficiency improvements realized and favourable foreign exchange gains recorded during the fiscal year.

Fourth quarter revenue was $78.7 million, an increase of 3.1% over revenue of $76.3 million in the fourth quarter last year. Revenue in the quarter reflects incremental revenue contributions from acquisitions as well as the unfavourable impact of foreign exchange, largely on the decline in the Pound Sterling post-Brexit. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $26.7 million or $0.99 per diluted share compared to $21.1 million or $0.78 per diluted share in last year–s fourth quarter, an increase of 26.5%.

Operating expenses before special charges related to restructuring of acquired operations were $28.9 million compared to $32.9 million in the prior year–s fourth quarter and primarily include incremental operating costs related to acquisitions and the favourable impact of foreign exchange gains of $4.2 million booked in the quarter on translation of foreign currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities. Non-cash amortization charges in the quarter were $7.2 million compared to $6.1 million in the prior year–s fourth quarter and include amortization charges for acquired software and customer relationships from acquired operations.

Results from operating activities for the quarter were $25.4 million compared to $20.0 million in the prior year–s fourth quarter, an increase of 27.2% over the prior year. Net income for the quarter was $19.9 million or $0.73 per diluted share compared to the prior year–s fourth quarter net income of $13.2 million or $0.49 per diluted share.

Enghouse generated cash flows from operations of $15.8 million in the quarter compared to $11.3 million in the prior year–s fourth quarter. Cash flows generated from operations for the fiscal year were $59.7 million compared to $50.5 million in the prior fiscal year. Enghouse closed the year with $85.9 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, compared to $98.4 million at October 31, 2015. The cash balance was achieved after payment of $51.3 million for acquisitions (net of cash acquired), $4.5 million to finalize prior year acquisitions and dividends of $13.9 million.

Shortly before year end on October 28, 2016, Enghouse acquired Presence Technology, S.L. for a purchase price of $19.0 million, net of cash acquired. The Company inherited Presence–s pre-existing long-term debt but does not otherwise have any long-term debt. Only the opening balance sheet on acquisition was included in the results for fiscal 2016 as results between the acquisition date and October 31, 2016 were not material.

The Board of Directors has approved an eligible quarterly dividend of $0.14 per common share, payable on February 28, 2017 to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 14, 2017.

A conference call to discuss the results will be held on Friday December 16, 2016 at 8:45 a.m. EST. To participate, please call 416-640-5946 or North American Toll-Free 1-866-233-4585. No PIN required.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP measures to assess its operating performance. Securities regulations require that companies caution readers that earnings and other measures adjusted to a basis other than GAAP do not have standardized meanings and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. Accordingly, they should not be considered in isolation. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operating performance. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as results from operating activities adjusted for depreciation of property, plant and equipment, and special charges for acquisition related restructuring costs. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate operating performance as it excludes amortization of software and intangibles (which is an accounting allocation of the cost of software and intangible assets arising on acquisition), any impact of finance and tax related activities, asset depreciation, other income and restructuring costs primarily related to acquisitions.
