"I am pleased with the progress we've made in executing on the vision we described in 2005. Recent product launches and customer wins demonstrate that we are broadening both our product line and our addressable market," said Alex Hart, president and CEO of Corillian. "We continue to gain traction in business banking, payments, and online security, and the investments we've made to make our industry-leading consumer solutions more configurable are resulting in a growing pipeline of opportunities with financial institutions of all sizes. These developments would not be possible, of course, without our continued commitment to providing our customers with great products, unequalled project management skills, and world-class support. The recent launch of Corillian solutions at Capital One, The Golden One, Commerce Bank, and another top 50 U.S. bank is a testament to the value that our customers place on a certain outcome in an uncertain world."

Financial Outlook

Corillian will continue to invest in the people, processes, and technologies required to enhance the long-term profitability of its business model. The near-term impact of these investments will be delayed improvement in revenue and earnings growth, primarily due to the long term nature of some of the recurring revenue deals that it is currently pursuing. The company anticipates that second quarter 2006 revenues will be in the range of $13.5 to $15.5 million and GAAP EPS will range from a diluted net loss per share of ($0.03) to ($0.05), based on the current backlog of projects in implementation and potential deals in our sales pipeline. Pro forma results, excluding the amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions and stock-based compensation expense, are expected to range from a diluted net loss per share of ($0.01) to ($0.03).

Included in its GAAP diluted per share guidance for the second quarter of 2006, Corillian anticipates approximately $600,000 of stock-based compensation expense in accordance with FAS 123R and the amortization of approximately $400,000 of acquisition-related intangible assets.» Download the document now 37.7 kb (Adobe Acrobat Document)
