Enghouse Releases Second Quarter Results

Canada NewsWire

MARKHAM, ON, June 10, 2021 /CNW/ - Enghouse Systems Limited (TSX: ENGH) today announced its second quarter unaudited financial results for the period ended April 30, 2021. All the financial information is in Canadian dollars unless otherwise indicated.

Financial and operational highlights for the three and six months ended April 30, 2021 compared to the three and six months ended April 30, 2020 are as follows:

  • Revenue achieved was $117.3 and $236.4 million, respectively, compared to record revenue of $140.9 and $251.6 million;
  • Results from operating activities was $36.9 and $77.6 million, respectively, compared to $46.3 and $77.1 million;
  • Net income was $20.7 and $41.4 million, respectively, compared to $27.1 and $43.2 million;
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $40.2 and $84.7 million, respectively, compared to $49.3 and $84.6 million;
  • Cash flows from operating activities excluding changes in working capital was $42.6 and $84.3 million, respectively compared to $50.0 and $85.2 million.

Although revenue achieved for the quarter was $117.3 million, compared to record revenue of $140.9 million in the same period in the prior year, Enghouse continues to generate positive cash flows, operating income and profitability. The decline in revenue was driven primarily by the previous year's significant increase in our Vidyo business that has now returned to levels that are more consistent with pre-COVID volumes. Enghouse continues to expand its cloud offerings and has implemented new initiatives aimed at increasing sales of cloud-based products while offering choice to its customers by providing multi-tenant cloud, private cloud and on-premise solutions to the market.

As previously announced on April 28, 2021, Enghouse signed a $29 million multi-year agreement with the Norwegian Government to update its National Emergency Fire Services Technology System. The eight-year agreement builds on the success in the Norwegian market with the $55 million, 12-year agreement with Norwegian Health Care announced in October 2020.

The Company closed the quarter with $169.6 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments and no debt after paying $90.5 million in dividends during the quarter. As always, Enghouse prioritizes its long-term growth strategy over quarter-to-quarter results, investing in products while ensuring continued profitability and maximizing operating cashflows. As a result, Enghouse has replenished its acquisition capital, while returning $83.2 million in special dividends to shareholders.

Quarterly dividends:
Today, the Board of Directors approved the Company's eligible quarterly dividend of $0.16 per common share payable on August 31, 2021 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 17, 2021.

****

The Company uses non-IFRS measures to assess its operating performance. Securities regulations require that companies caution readers that earnings and other measures adjusted to a basis other than IFRS 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 based on results from operating activities adjusted for depreciation of property and equipment and right-of-use assets, 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, foreign exchange gains and losses, other income and restructuring costs primarily related to acquisitions.
