25% Increase in Services Revenue Year-over-Year
NORCROSS, Ga., May 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoreCard Corporation (NYSE: CCRD) (“CoreCard” or the “Company”), the leading provider of innovative credit technology solutions and processing services to the financial technology and services market, announced today its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2023.
"CoreCard’s strong performance continued in the first quarter and resulted in total net revenue of $14.8 million which exceeded our expectations,” said Leland Strange, CEO of CoreCard. "Our significant top-line growth in services revenue was driven by 27% growth in professional services revenue and 34% growth in processing and maintenance revenue. As expected, we did not recognize any license revenue in the first quarter of 2023, as no new license tiers were achieved. As a reminder, we completed a large conversion in the first quarter of 2022 resulting in the significant license revenue for the first quarter of last year. We continue to see encouraging results from the ongoing investment in our platform and processing capabilities, and we continue to onboard new customers that value the features and functionality offered by the CoreCard platform.”
"Due to solid performance during the first quarter, we are reaffirming our 2023 services revenue growth expectations of approximately 10% and total license revenue in the range of $3 million to $7 million. The opportunity ahead of us is significant. CoreCard provides the gold standard in modern card issuing and remains a growth business focused on meeting the evolving needs of modern issuers while generating long-term value for our shareholders," concluded Strange.
