Operating Results

Greenway generated record quarterly revenue of $36.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, up 24% from $29.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. For the 12 months ended June 30, 2012, total revenue grew by 38% to an annual record $124.0 million, from $89.8 million for the year-ago period.

Gross profit for the three months ended June 30, 2012, was $21.8 million, which compares with $17.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, a 27% increase. Gross profit margin of 60% for the 2012 fourth quarter was 145 basis points higher than the previous year, largely as a result of revenue growth as well as margin improvement efforts in training and consulting services, support services and electronic data interchange and business services, offset by a decline in system sales margins for the period. This improvement in gross margin included the absorption of increased amortization expense of approximately $1 million related to acquired technology and software development costs in the fourth quarter of 2012. Amortization commences as various projects become available for market. For the 12 months ended June 30, 2012, gross profit was $68.1 million, compared with $49.4 million for the prior-year period. Gross margin for fiscal year 2012 was essentially unchanged, at 55%, from the prior-year period. Gross profit for fiscal 2012 included the absorption of increased amortization expense of approximately $2.5 million.
