Descartes Reports Fiscal 2013 Second Quarter Financial Results

Record Revenues and Operating Results

WATERLOO, Ontario, Sept. 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Descartes Systems Group Inc. (TSX:DSG) (Nasdaq:DSGX) announced financial results for its fiscal 2013 second quarter (Q2FY13) ended July 31, 2012. All financial results referenced are in United States (US) currency and, unless otherwise indicated, are determined in accordance with US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

Q2FY13 Financial Results

As described in more detail below, key financial highlights for Descartes in Q2FY13 included:

  • Revenues of $30.5 million, up 6% from $28.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 (Q2FY12) and up 2% from $29.9 million in the previous quarter (Q1FY13);
  • Services revenues of $29.3 million, up 10% from $26.7 million in Q2FY12 and up 6% from $27.7 million in Q1FY13. Services revenues comprised 96% of total revenues for the quarter;
  • Cash provided by operating activities of $6.6 million, up from $4.6 million in Q2FY12 and $4.4 million in Q1FY13;
  • Net income of $2.5 million, slightly down from $2.6 million in both Q2FY12 and Q1FY13;
  • Earnings per share on a diluted basis of $0.04, consistent with both Q2FY12 and Q1FY13;
  • Days-sales-outstanding (DSO) for Q2FY13 were 55 days, down from 58 days in Q1FY13 and up from 53 days in Q2FY12;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $9.3 million, up 12% from $8.3 million in Q2FY12 and up 7% from $8.7 million in Q1FY13. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues was 30%, up from 29% in both Q2FY12 and Q1FY13; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA per share on a diluted basis of $0.15, up 15% from $0.13 in Q2FY12 and up 7% from Q1FY13.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per diluted share are non-GAAP financial measures provided as a complement to financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (for which we include amortization of intangible assets, deferred compensation, stock-based compensation and related fees and taxes) and other charges (for which we include acquisition-related expenses and restructuring charges). These items are considered by management to be outside Descartes' ongoing operational results. We define Adjusted EBITDA per diluted share as Adjusted EBITDA divided by the number of diluted shares used to calculate the GAAP measure of earnings per share. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per diluted share to net income and earnings per share determined in accordance with GAAP, respectively, is provided later in this release. The following table summarizes Descartes' results in the categories specified below over the past 5 fiscal quarters (unaudited; dollar amounts, other than per share amounts, in millions):
