Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (Nasdaq: JKHY), a leading provider of integrated technology solutions and outsourced data processing for financial institutions, today announced third quarter fiscal 2007 results with a 16 percent increase in total revenue, a 13 percent increase in gross profit, and a 12 percent increase in net income over the third quarter of fiscal 2006.

For the nine months of fiscal 2007, total revenue increased 13 percent, with an increase of 12 percent in gross profit and an increase of 17 percent in net income over the same nine months in fiscal 2006.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2007, the company generated total revenue of $168.9 million compared to $145.5 million in the same quarter a year ago. Gross profit increased to $71.7 million compared to $63.7 million in the third quarter of last fiscal year. Net income totaled $26.4 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to $23.5 million, or $0.25 per diluted share in the same quarter a year ago.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2007, total revenue was $486.8 million compared to $429.9 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2006. Gross profit increased to $208.0 million compared to $185.7 million during the same period last fiscal year. Net income for the nine months of fiscal 2007 was $75.6 million, or $0.82 per diluted share, compared to $64.5 million, or $0.69 per diluted share for the same nine months in fiscal 2006.

According to Jack Prim, CEO, "We are very pleased with the revenue and earnings growth in the quarter. While license fees were below expected levels, increases in support and service revenue more than offset any shortfall. Our business continues to be less dependent on license fees to drive revenue growth while still providing upside opportunities when larger license transactions do occur in a particular quarter."

Operating Results

"Our support and service revenue increased 23% for the quarter and 19% year to date compared to the prior year. We have seen solid growth in all of the components within this line which include one-time implementation fees and the components that represent our recurring revenue: Electronic Payments, OutLink (data and item processing) and our in-house support and maintenance," stated Tony Wormington, President. "This growth is being significantly driven by our electronic payments business, which includes our on-line bill pay, EFT/Debit card transaction processing, Check 21 image transactions and our merchant remote deposit capture. Electronic payments increased 34% for the quarter and 41% year to date compared to last year and our electronic payments now represent 15% of our total revenue and will continue to be a primary focus of our future growth."

License revenue for the third quarter was $15.3 million, or 9 percent of third quarter total revenue, compared to $20.6 million, or 14 percent of the third quarter total revenue a year ago. Support and service revenue increased to $130.3 million, or 77 percent of total revenue in third quarter of fiscal 2007 from $106.1 million, or 73 percent of total revenue for the same period a year ago. There was strong growth in all support and service revenue components for the third quarter. EFT Support, which includes ATM/debit card processing, bill pay, remote capture and Check 21 transaction processing services, was the largest contributor with growth of $7.1 million or 34% in the third quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. Hardware sales in the third quarter of fiscal 2007 increased to $23.3 million, or 14 percent of total revenue, from $18.8 million, or 13 percent of total revenue in the third quarter of last fiscal year.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2007, license revenue decreased to $52.1 million, or 11 percent of total revenue, compared to $58.3 million, or 14 percent of total revenue a year ago. Support and service revenue contributed 76 percent or $370.1 million of the total revenue for the first nine months of the current fiscal year, compared to $312.0 million, or 73 percent of total revenue for the first nine months of the prior fiscal year. The increase in support and service revenue is due to increases in every component of this revenue line for the first nine months compared to the prior year, particularly electronic payments which had growth of $21.7 million or 41% in the first nine months of the current fiscal year compared to the same period a year ago. Hardware sales year-to-date was $64.6 million compared to $59.6 million for the same period last year. Hardware revenue was 13 percent of total revenue for fiscal 2007 and 14 percent of total revenue year-to-date in fiscal 2006.

Year-to-date gross profit of fiscal 2007 increased 12 percent to $208.0 million compared to $185.7 million year-to-date for fiscal 2006. The gross margin was 43 percent for both year-to-date periods.

Gross margin on license revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2007 was 94 percent compared to 99 percent a year ago for the same period, primarily due to an increase in license revenue delivered through reseller agreements. Gross margin for the first nine months of both fiscal 2007 and 2006 was 96 percent.

Support and service gross margin increased to 39 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2007 from 36 percent a year ago. Support and service gross margin increased to 38 percent in the first nine months of fiscal 2007 from 36 percent for the first nine months in fiscal 2006. This increase in gross margin for both the quarter and year-to-date is mainly due to growth in components with higher margins such as electronic payment processing. Hardware gross margin was lower for the third quarter at 25 percent compared to 28 percent for the same quarter last year, primarily due to sales mix along with reduced vendor rebates received on hardware sold. Year-to-date gross margin for both the current and prior fiscal year was 27 percent.

Operating expenses increased 7 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2007 compared to the same quarter a year ago primarily due to employee related expenses from increased headcount.

Year-to-date net income totaled $75.6 million, or $0.82 per diluted share, compared to $64.5 million, or $0.69 per diluted share in the prior year.

"The cumulative results of the quarter were in-line with our expectations, with the only shortfall being in license revenue; however this was offset by our continued strong growth in our support and services, of which our recurring revenue was 68% for the quarter and 67% year-to-date of total revenue," stated Kevin Williams, CFO. "Also, during the quarter we purchased an additional one million shares of stock for the treasury for $23.3 million, which brings the total year-to-date buyback to approximately 3.3 million shares."
