Greenway generated revenue of $32.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, up 28% from $25.7 million for the comparable prior-year period. Revenue from recurring sources, particularly support services, grew by 36% as a result of a higher proportion of new customer installations on Greenway’s cloud-based solutions, as well as growth of other services.
Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2012, was $17.8 million, which compares with $13.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011, a 34% increase. Gross profit margin improved by 262 basis points, to 54.4% for the fiscal 2013 first quarter, from 51.8% for the prior-year period, largely as a result of revenue growth as well as better margins for support services and electronic data interchange and business services, offset by a decline in system sales margins for the period. System sales margin for the quarter includes the absorption of increased amortization expense of approximately $1.2 million related to software development costs and acquired technology. Amortization commences as various projects become available for market.
