MARKHAM, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Enghouse Systems Limited (TSX:ESL) today announced its unaudited second quarter financial results for the period ended April 30, 2014.

Second quarter revenue was $55.0 million, an increase of 23% over revenue of $44.5 million in the second quarter last year. The increase in revenue reflects a combination of contributions from acquisitions, the positive impact of foreign exchange and organic growth. Revenue includes hosted and maintenance services contributions of $28.3 million in the quarter, an increase of 21% over last year. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $13.9 million or $0.52 per diluted share compared to $10.7 million or $0.40 per diluted share in last year's second quarter. Results from operating activities for the quarter were $12.5 million compared to $9.7 million in the prior year's second quarter, an increase of 29% over the prior year. Net income for the quarter was $6.6 million or $0.24 per diluted share compared to the prior year's second quarter net income of $4.9 million or $0.19 per share.

On a year to date basis, revenue was $102.4 million for the year compared to $86.5 million last year, an increase of 18%, while net income was $12.7 million or $0.47 per diluted share compared to $8.3 million or $0.32 per diluted share, an increase of 53%. Adjusted EBITDA was $26.0 million or $0.97 per diluted share compared to $20.3 million or $0.77 per diluted share last year.

Operating expenses increased to $26.3 million from $22.3 million in the prior year's second quarter and include incremental operating costs related to acquisitions, foreign exchange and special charges of $0.8 million related to restructuring of acquired operations. Non-cash amortization charges in the quarter were $4.2 million compared to $3.9 million in the prior year's second quarter and include amortization charges for acquired software and customer relationships including acquisitions completed in the current year.

Enghouse closed the quarter with $101.0 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, compared to $90.3 million at October 31, 2013. This is after net cash paid of $8.2 million for the acquisition of IT Sonix AG, completed March 3, 2014, $1.8 million for Information Access Technology Inc., acquired November 4, 2013, final payments of $3.4 million made on previous acquisitions and dividends of $4.2 million paid year to date.

The Board of Directors has approved an eligible quarterly dividend of $0.10 per common share, payable on August 29, 2014 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 15, 2014.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP measures to assess its operating performance. Securities regulations require that companies caution readers that earnings and other measures adjusted to a basis other than GAAP do not have standardized meanings and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. Accordingly, they should not be considered in isolation. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operating performance. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as income before income taxes adjusted for depreciation of property, plant and equipment, amortization of acquired software and customer relationships, finance income, finance expenses, other income, and special charges for acquisition related restructuring costs. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate operating performance as it excludes amortization of software and intangibles (which is an accounting allocation of the cost of software and intangible assets arising on acquisition), any impact of finance and tax related activities, asset depreciation, other income and restructuring costs primarily related to acquisitions.
