WATERLOO, Ontario, March 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Descartes Systems Group Inc. (TSX:DSG) (Nasdaq:DSGX) announced financial results for its fiscal 2013 fourth quarter (Q4FY13) and year (FY13) ended January 31, 2013. 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).

FY13 Financial Results

As described in more detail below, key financial highlights for Descartes in FY13 included:

  • Revenues of $126.9 million, up 11% from $114.0 million in the year ended January 31, 2012 (FY12);
  • Services revenues of $116.8 million, up 11% from $105.7 million in FY12. Services revenues comprised 92% and 93% of total revenues for years ended FY13 and FY12, respectively;
  • Gross margin of 67%, up from 66% in FY12;
  • Income before income taxes of $17.2 million, up 12% from $15.4 million in FY12;
  • Net income of $16.0 million, up 33% from $12.0 million in FY12;
  • Earnings per share on a diluted basis of $0.25, up 32% from $0.19 in FY12;
  • Cash provided by operating activities of $30.3 million, up 27% from $23.9 million in FY12;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $38.2 million, up 16% from $33.0 million in FY12. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues was 30% in FY13 up from 29% in FY12; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA per share on a diluted basis was $0.60, up 15% from $0.52 in FY12.

The following table summarizes Descartes' results in the categories specified below over FY13 and FY12 (dollar amounts, other than per share amounts, in millions):

  FY13 FY12
Revenues 126.9 114.0
Services revenues 116.8 105.7
Gross margin 67% 66%
Income before income taxes 17.2 15.4
Net income * 16.0 12.0
Earnings per diluted share* 0.25 0.19
Cash provided by operating activities 30.3 23.9
Adjusted EBITDA 38.2 33.0
Adjusted EBITDA as a % of revenues 30% 29%
Adjusted EBITDA per diluted share 0.60 0.52
* Net income and earnings per diluted share in FY13 and FY12 were positively impacted by the release of valuation allowance of $5.3 million and $0.7 respectively. 

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.
