Computer Programs and Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPSI), a leading provider of healthcare information solutions, today announced results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.64 (sixty-four cents) per share, payable on August 28, 2015, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 13, 2015.

Total revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015, were $47.1 million, compared with total revenues of $53.1 million for the prior-year second quarter. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, was $5.9 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, compared with $9.1 million, or $0.81 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. Cash provided by operations for the second quarter of 2015 was $3.8 million, compared with $1.3 million for the prior-year second quarter. Cash collections for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015, were $48.3 million, compared with cash collections of $51.5 million for the prior-year second quarter.

Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2015, were $93.3 million, compared with total revenues of $105.1 million for the prior-year period. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2015, was $11.4 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, compared with $16.8 million, or $1.50 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2014. Cash provided by operations for the first half of 2015 was $17.4 million, compared with $14.5 million for the prior-year period. Cash collections for the first half of 2015, were $97.7 million, compared with cash collections of $101.5 million for the prior-year period.

CPSI’s 12-month backlog as of June 30, 2015, was $170.0 million, consisting of $34.4 million in non-recurring system purchases and professional services and $135.6 million in recurring payments for support, Business Management Services, Cloud EHR Contracts and professional services.

The Company is lowering previously issued guidance for full year 2015 and now anticipates total revenues of $188 million to $192 million and net income of approximately $23.2 million to $24.5 million, or $2.05 to $2.17 per diluted share.

Commenting on the second quarter and the guidance revision, Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI, said, “2015 continues to be a difficult year for the generation of system sales revenue in the community hospital marketplace. At this time, we expect the system sales environment to remain challenging through the first half of 2016. We believe there will be significant opportunities for Evident sales growth within both new client, legacy replacement sales and add-on software sales to existing customers resulting from CMS Meaningful Use Stage Three requirements, when finalized. We are also excited about the potential for Evident within Canada, where we continue to make headway in our efforts to bring a reasonably priced EHR alternative to the Canadian community hospital marketplace.”

In closing, Douglas added, “On a positive note, TruBridge continues to perform exceptionally well, with record 17% year-over-year quarterly revenue growth as well as improved margins over the first quarter of 2015. Consequently, with the recurring nature of TruBridge revenue, combined with more of our hospital customers choosing our Evident cloud-based EHR solutions, we expect recurring revenue to represent more than 80% of total revenue by 2019.”

CPSI will hold a live webcast to discuss second quarter 2015 results on Thursday, July 30, 2015, at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time. A 30-day online replay will be available approximately one hour following the conclusion of the live webcast.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure which CPSI defines as net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of capital assets. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is net cash provided by operating activities. The Company believes free cash flow is a useful measure of performance and uses this measure as an indication of the financial resources of the Company and its ability to generate cash.
