INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER 2007 RESULTS
Norcross, GA – May 15, 2007 – Intelligent Systems Corporation [AMEX:INS; www.intelsys.com] announced today the financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2007. Net loss for the first quarter of 2007 was $133,000 ($0.03 per basic and diluted share) compared to a net loss of $445,000 ($0.10 per basic and diluted share) for the corresponding period in 2006.
Revenue from product sales in the first quarter of 2007 was $3.1 million, a 67 percent increase over the first quarter of 2006, while revenue from services declined by 68 percent to $963,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2007 compared to the first quarter of 2006. Overall, the company reported total revenue of $4.0 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2007 compared to total revenue of $4.9 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2006.
The period-to-period increase in product revenue reflects growth in international sales of the ChemFree subsidiary products as well as new license revenue recognized by the CoreCard Software subsidiary. The period-to-period decline in services revenue is mainly due to an unusually large multi-year software services contract that was recognized in the first quarter of 2006. Consolidated operating expenses declined by 15 percent in the first quarter of 2007, lowering the loss from operations to $274,000 compared to a loss from operations of $702,000 in the first quarter of 2006.
As previously disclosed, as a result of the sale of the company’s QS Technologies business in July of 2006, the company classified the QS business as Discontinued Operations and the financial results for 2006 have been reclassified to conform to this presentation. In the quarter ended March 31, 2007, the company reported an additional gain of $97,000 on the sale of the QS business following completion of an earn-out period in which there were no proposed adjustments by the buyer.
