Intelligent Systems Announces First Quarter 2013 Results

NORCROSS, Ga., May 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intelligent Systems Corporation (NYSE MKT:INS) ( ) announced today its financial results for the three month period ended March 31, 2013.

For the three month period ended March 31, 2013, the company recorded total revenue of $4,086,000, essentially flat compared to total revenue of $4,094,000 recorded in the first quarter of 2012. In the first quarter of 2013, product revenue decreased by one percent while service revenue increased by five percent, as compared to the same quarter in 2012. Net income per share allocable to Intelligent Systems Corporation was $140,000 ($0.02 per basic and diluted share), an improvement compared to net income of $5,000 ($0.00 per basic and diluted share) in the first quarter of 2012.

J. Leland Strange, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Our ChemFree subsidiary reported strong profits in the first quarter of 2013 consistent with the first quarter of 2012, although sluggish machine sales in the European and Australian market offset modest period-to-period revenue growth for SmartWasher® machine sales and leases in the domestic U.S. market.

"The increase in service revenue is associated with more maintenance, support and processing services performed by our CoreCard subsidiary. While the licensed software business continues to be CoreCard's main revenue contributor, we are making progress ramping up the processing services business and continue to invest in infrastructure, software and processes to support this business."

As we have frequently cautioned, results may vary from quarter-to-quarter due in part to the timing of CoreCard license revenue recognition and the number and value of professional services contracts completed in a given period.

The company intends to file its Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2013 with the Securities Exchange Commission today, May 15, 2013. For additional information about reported results, investors will be able to access the Form 10-Q on the company's website at or on the SEC site, .
