INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES THIRD QUARTER 2007 RESULTS
Norcross, GA – November 14, 2007 – Intelligent Systems Corporation [AMEX:INS; www.intelsys.com] announced today the financial results for its third quarter and year-to-date periods ended September 30, 2007.
Total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2007 was $5.8 million, an increase of 67% compared to the same period in 2006. Revenue for the nine month period ended September 30, 2007 was $13.7 million, an increase of 15% over the year-to-date period in 2006. Net loss was $982,000 ($0.22 loss per basic share) for the three month period ended September 30, 2007 compared to net income of $7.0 million ($1.57 earnings per basic share) in the same period in 2006. For the year-to-date period ended September 30, 2007, net loss was $2.0 million ($0.45 loss per basis share) compared to net income of $5.8 million ($1.29 earnings per basic share) in the respective period in 2006.
The financial results between periods are not directly comparable due to two previously disclosed transactions which resulted in significant non-recurring income in the quarter and year-to-date periods ended September 30, 2006. On July 31, 2006, the Company sold the business of its QS Technologies subsidiary which resulted in a net gain on the sale of $4.9 million. A second transaction, the sale of the Company’s interest in privately held Horizon Software International, Inc. in August 2006 resulted in an investment gain of $2.6 million. Additionally, as a result of the sale of the QS Technologies business and in conformity with applicable accounting standards, the Company classified the QS business as Discontinued Operations for all periods reported in 2007 and 2006. The financial results reported for the Company’s Continuing Operations for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2007 and 2006 include the consolidated results of its remaining three subsidiaries: VISaer, Inc., CoreCard Software, Inc. and ChemFree Corporation.
The substantial increase in revenue growth reported for both the quarter and year-to-date periods in 2007 reflects the successful roll-out of a national program by a new customer at the Company’s ChemFree subsidiary. ChemFree achieved record sales volume of its SmartWasher® parts washer product in the third quarter of 2007.
J. Leland Strange, president and chief executive officer of Intelligent Systems, said, “The strong performance by our ChemFree operations in the second and third quarter of 2007 was very gratifying, although the sharp increase in revenue is unlikely to represent a sustained trend line. While we continue to invest in and make progress developing and strengthening our product offerings at our CoreCard Software and VISaer subsidiaries, we have not achieved meaningful growth in revenue from new software license sales in 2007.”
The Company expects to file its Form 10-QSB for the quarter ended September 30, 2007 with the Securities and Exchange Commission by the end of the day today. For additional information about the Company’s reported results, investors will be able to access the Form 10-QSB on the Company’s website at www.intelsys.com or at the SEC site, www.sec.gov. In keeping with prior practice, the Company may schedule investor conference calls from time to time as appropriate and will announce future conference calls in advance.
