  • Software license revenues for the quarter decreased 8.8% to $22.1 million (Prior Year: $24.3 million) or -10.0% in organic constant currency (OCC)
  • Adjusted income from operations1 (Adjusted EBITDA) for the quarter was approximately equal to the Prior Year at $6.2 million, or a 10.3% margin (Prior Year: 10.7%)
  • Adjusted diluted EPS2 for the quarter was approximately equal to the Prior Year at $0.04
  • Adjusted cash generated from operations for the quarter increased to $11.3 million (Prior Year: -$0.4 million)
  • Quarter end cash was $90.3 million (Prior Year: $92.5 million)

First Quarter Operating Highlights:

  • Announced the availability of a free Kofax Mobile Capture app through the iTunes App Store and Google Play for demonstration and use with business cards, receipts and other documents
  • The Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) published a report entitled “Distributed and Mobile Capture – Moving the Process Closer to the Customer,” which contained the results of a survey revealing that mobile capture is considered a "Game Changer" for customer focused initiatives
  • Kofax Web Capture™ was named to KMWorld Magazine’s prestigious listing of “Trend Setting Products of 2012”
  • Chief executive officer Reynolds C. Bish was honored at the 2012 British American Business Awards for leadership in the Southern California business community
  • Kofax was added to the FTSE4Good Index Series, a family of share indexes for companies meeting globally recognized corporate responsibility standards

A summary of Kofax’s revenue and adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter compared to the prior year period is as follows:

        First Quarter
Unaudited       Y/Y     In
$M Change OCC
Software Licenses 22.1 -8.8% -10.0%
Maintenance Services 29.9 8.2% 8.7%
Professional Services 8.1 22.2% -6.5%
Total Revenues 60.1 2.8% -0.8%

Adjusted EBITDA1

6.2 -0.6%

Margin

10.3% -3.3%
 
Adjusted Diluted EPS2 0.04 0.0%  
 

Commenting on these results, Reynolds C. Bish, Chief Executive Officer, said: “Our first quarter produced seasonally weak software license and professional service revenues and continuing growth in maintenance service revenues due to increasing renewal rates with total revenues being consistent with historical trends. This was accomplished during a quarter in which we changed our head of global sales and services in order to strengthen leadership in those areas and began implementing initiatives to gradually improve sales execution and productivity. We’re therefore pleased to report essentially the same EBITDA as that realized in the prior year period and strong cash generated from operations.”

Bish continued: ”We remain aware of the unpredictable global macroeconomic conditions and recessionary environments in many Western European countries, but these continue to be in line with our previous expectations. As a result, we are reaffirming our guidance for all of fiscal year 2013, which is for mid to high single digit total revenue growth on a constant currency basis and an adjusted EBITDA margin of at least that reported in fiscal year 2012.”

Conference Call

Reynolds C. Bish and Chief Financial Officer Jamie Arnold will review the results and conduct a question and answer session via teleconference on November 6 at 8:00 am UK time. A telephonic replay of the teleconference will be available by 1:00 pm UK time on November 6. These can be accessed as follows:

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
