EPlus Reports Fiscal 2011 Second Quarter Results

HERNDON, Va., Nov. 4, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- e Plus inc. (Nasdaq:PLUS), a leading provider of technology solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Revenues totaled $234.5 million, an increase of $61.8 million or 35.8%, compared to $172.7 million in the fiscal second quarter of 2010. Net earnings increased 58.3% to $7.9 million or $0.94 per diluted share, as compared to $5.0 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, in the fiscal second quarter of 2010. Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 include patent license and settlement income of $125 thousand, compared to $3.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2009.

"Spending for IT products and services in the U.S. rebounded due to improved economic conditions, and we achieved another quarter of significant revenue and earnings improvement on both a year-over-year and sequential basis," said Phillip G. Norton, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our business model has proven its scalability and efficiency, as gross profit increased at a much greater rate than overhead, further driving net earnings. I believe this demonstrates that e Plus is well positioned for the future, having a solid balance sheet, a skilled workforce, a solution set that is in high demand by our customers, and an efficient operating platform."

Quarterly Results

Sales of product and services totaled $221.9 million, an increase of $64.6 million or 41.1%, as compared to $157.3 million in the fiscal second quarter of 2010. The gross margin on products and services was 14.5%, down slightly compared to 14.6% in the same quarter last year.

Revenues generated from the combination of sales of leased equipment, lease revenues, and fee and other income totaled $12.4 million, an increase of $0.4 million or 3.3%, compared to $12.0 million in the fiscal second quarter of 2010. Lease revenues totaled $8.6 million, a decrease of $0.3 million as compared to the same quarter last year, due to lower sales of leased assets and transfers of financial assets, partially offset by increased earnings from direct financing leases.
