BOCA RATON, Fla., May 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Agilysys, Inc. (NASDAQ:AGYS), a leading provider of IT solutions, today announced fiscal 2007 unaudited fourth-quarter and full-year results for the periods ended March 31, 2007.
As previously announced, on March 31, 2007 Agilysys closed the sale of its KeyLink Systems Distribution Business assets to Arrow Electronics, Inc. for $485 million in cash, subject to a working capital adjustment, to focus exclusively on growing its IT solutions business. For purposes of financial reporting, this business is now treated as discontinued operations in the accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements.
Over the last six months, in addition to the divestiture of KeyLink Systems, Agilysys has announced three acquisitions. These include Visual One Systems, a leading developer and marketer of Microsoft(R) Windows(R)-based software for the hospitality industry; Stack Computer, a premier technology integrator with a strong focus in high availability storage infrastructure solutions; and, as announced in a separate news release today, an agreement to acquire Innovativ Systems Design, Inc., the largest U.S. commercial reseller of Sun Microsystems servers and storage products.
Arthur Rhein, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Agilysys, said, "I am extremely pleased with our progress. We have completed our transformation to a business focused solely on selling IT solutions direct to end customers. In addition, we continue to execute our strategic plan, including accelerating growth through acquisitions as a solution provider."
Acquisition of Innovativ
Agilysys announced today that it has entered a definitive agreement to acquire Innovativ Systems Design.
Innovativ is an integrator and value-added reseller of servers, enterprise storage management products and professional services, and has a strong financial services and telecommunications industry presence. This acquisition will further diversify Agilysys' supplier mix, establish new markets and broaden Agilysys' customer base. Through the addition of Sun, the acquisition will also expand Agilysys' offerings to now include four of the most pervasive computer technology suppliers: EMC, HP, IBM and Sun. Over the trailing 12 months ended March 31, 2007, Innovativ generated revenues of approximately $256 million and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") in excess of $20 million.
Acquisition of Stack Computer
On April 2, 2007, Agilysys announced the acquisition of Stack Computer, a privately held technology integrator with a strong focus in EMC-based high availability storage infrastructure solutions. Stack's customers include leading corporations in the financial services, healthcare and manufacturing industries. Strategically, the acquisition provides Agilysys with product solutions and services offerings that significantly enhance its storage and professional services businesses. Stack has annual revenues of approximately $55 million. Stack's product category sales mix consists of approximately 62% hardware, 27% software and 11% services.
Rhein added, "I believe our financial performance, over the last six months in particular, given the level of activity around the divestiture and multiple acquisitions, is quite impressive. This bodes well for the future as we narrow our focus on growing the business and continue to provide increased shareholder value."
The descriptions for fourth-quarter and full-year results reflect financial information for Agilysys continuing operations.
Fiscal 2007 Fourth Quarter: Results from Continuing Operations
Sales for the fourth quarter increased 3% to $118.1 million, compared with $115.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006.
Fiscal 2007 fourth-quarter sales of hardware products were $87.7 million. Software sales were $7.8 million. Services sales were $22.6 million.
Gross margin from continuing operations for the fourth quarter increased to 27.0% of sales from 22.3% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006.
Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 were $37.4 million, or 31.7% of sales, compared with $34.4 million, or 29.9% of sales in the same quarter a year ago. Fiscal 2007 fourth-quarter SG&A expenses include approximately $900,000 related to the company's acquisition of Visual One Systems as well as legacy overhead costs associated with discontinued operations. Agilysys will realize cost savings in fiscal 2008 based on restructuring of the business.
Loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter improved $1.0 million to $6.6 million, or 21 cents per share, compared with $7.6 million, or 25 cents per share in the same quarter a year ago.
Fiscal 2007 Full Year: Results from Continuing Operations
For the fiscal year ended March 31, 2007, sales were $474.6 million, an increase of 1.2% over the $469.0 million in sales reported for the prior year.
Full-year sales of hardware products were $348.5 million. Software sales were $33.3 million. Services sales were $92.8 million.
Gross margin was 25.4% of sales, up 2.6 percentage points, from 22.8% in fiscal 2006. SG&A expenses increased to 28.1% of sales, from 26.2% in the prior year. SG&A expenses include legacy overhead costs associated with discontinued operations.
Loss from continuing operations for the fiscal year improved $9.1 million to $11.6 million, or $0.38 per share, compared with a net loss from continuing operations in the previous year of $20.7 million, or $0.69 per share.
Agilysys reported a net $2.5 million restructuring credit for fiscal 2007 fourth-quarter and full-year results. This included a $4.9 million credit resulting from the reversal of a previous charge related to 2003 facility exit costs. The credit was partially offset by a restructuring charge of $2.4 million for severance and facility exit costs.
In January 2007, upon announcing its intention to focus exclusively on selling IT solutions to corporate and public-sector customers, Agilysys established several long-term financial goals, including:
-- Grow sales from approximately $500 million to $1 billion within two years and to $1.5 billion in three years; -- Target gross margins in excess of 20% and EBITDA margins of 6% within three years; -- While in the near term return on invested capital will be diluted due to acquisitions and legacy costs, the company continues to target long- term return on capital of 15%.
Rhein said, "Following the close of Innovativ and including the recent acquisition of Stack Computer, Agilysys will have pro forma revenues in excess of $800 million, well ahead of our initial expectations."
For fiscal 2008, the company currently estimates sales to be in the range of $770 million to $790 million. Full-year gross margin is expected to be approximately 23% of sales, with EBITDA margins of approximately 2% to 3% of sales.
Selling, general and administrative expenses are anticipated to be in the range of $170 million to $173 million, including stock option expense of $4.8 million and approximately $6 million in new investments in software development and additional customer-facing employees. Interest income is expected to be approximately $17 million and the company anticipates an effective tax rate of approximately 41.5% for the fiscal year. Based on an estimated 32 million shares outstanding, EPS is expected to be in the range of $0.40 to $0.50 per share.
Agilysys also expects fiscal 2008 capital expenditures of approximately $5 million and depreciation and amortization of approximately $12 million, subject to finalizing FAS 142 intangible asset analysis on Visual One, Stack and Innovativ.
