I'm especially pleased that both current revenue and longer-term recurring revenue backlog increased during the second half of the year. The dual strategy of increasing the number of products and services we deliver to big banks and productizing our industry-leading solutions for smaller financial institutions is working well. We look forward to continued improvement this year and we're excited about the opportunities that lie ahead."

Financial Outlook

The company anticipates that first quarter 2007 revenues will be in the range of $14.5 to $16 million and GAAP EPS will range from a net loss of ($0.04) to ($0.01) per diluted share. Per share non-GAAP results are expected to range from a loss of ($0.02) to a profit of $0.01. Corillian expects lower profitability in the first quarter due primarily to seasonally higher payroll-related costs and a change in the mix of work related to subscription-based projects. Corillian expects continued improvement in profitability throughout 2007, consistent with our performance in 2006.

Reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP Results

Corillian provides non-GAAP operating results as a supplement to its GAAP financial results. Management believes that non-GAAP results provide investors with a representation of Corillian's core operating performance that can be helpful in assessing future growth.

  • Stock-based compensation
  • Amortization of intangible assets
