Computer Programs and Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPSI):

Second Quarter Highlights:

  • Revenues of $30.8 million;
  • Earnings per diluted share of $0.32;
  • Cash provided by operations of $3.7 million; and
  • Quarterly dividend of $0.36 per share.

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, 2009.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.36 (thirty-six cents) per share, payable on August 21, 2009, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 6, 2009.

Total revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009, increased 11.2% to $30.8 million, compared with total revenues of $27.8 million for the prior-year period. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2009, increased 18.4% to $3.5 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, compared with $3.0 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2008. Cash provided by operations for the second quarter of 2009 was $3.7 million, compared with $5.2 million for the prior-year period.

Commenting on the results, Boyd Douglas, chief executive officer and president of CPSI, stated, “Our strong quarter sustains the positive momentum from our first quarter and puts us on target for an outstanding year. We are pleased with the high rate of demand for our products and fully expect that trend to continue in conjunction with the ongoing national emphasis on expanding the use of information technology in healthcare through financial incentives contained in the ARRA economic stimulus package. In addition, it has also become clear that the adoption of electronic health records will be a key aspect of any of the national healthcare reform plans now being contemplated. As a company, we have taken a proactive approach to preparing for the potential growth associated with these reforms by adding more than 90 new staff members to our implementation and support division this past quarter. We are extremely well positioned, focused on generating both new and recurring revenues, and very excited about the remainder of the year.”

Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2009, increased 6.5% to $61.0 million, compared with total revenues of $57.3 million for the prior-year period. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2009, increased 16.5% to $7.6 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, compared with $6.5 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2008. Cash provided by operations for the first half of 2009 was $7.4 million, compared with $9.5 million for the prior-year period.

For the third quarter of 2009, the Company anticipates total revenues of $31.0 million to $32.5 million and net income of approximately $4.0 million to $4.2 million, or $0.37 to $0.39 per diluted share. CPSI’s 12-month backlog as of June 30, 2009, was $106.3 million, consisting of $22.0 million in non-recurring system purchases and $84.3 million in recurring payments for support, Business Management Services, ASP and ISP contracts.

A listen-only simulcast and replay of CPSI’s second quarter 2009 conference call will be available on-line at and on July 24, 2009, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time.
