INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES SECOND QUARTER 2008 RESULTS
Norcross, GA – August 14, 2008 – Intelligent Systems Corporation [AMEX:INS; www.intelsys.com] announced today the financial results for its second quarter and six month period ended June 30, 2008.
The Company recorded net income of $1,543,000 ($0.34 per basic and diluted share) in the three month period ended June 30, 2008 compared to a loss of $922,000 ($0.21 per basic and diluted share) in the second quarter of 2007. In the six month period ended June 30, 2008, net income was $58,000 ($0.01 per basic and diluted share) compared to a net loss of $1,055,000 ($0.24 per basic and diluted share) in the six month period in 2007. The reported results for the three and six month periods of 2008 were bolstered by a gain of $2,884,000 on the previously announced sale of the Company’s VISaer business which was effective on April 16, 2008. The gain on the sale offset losses from continuing operations in both the three and six month periods of 2008.
As a result of the VISaer sale, the VISaer business has been classified as discontinued operations for all periods reported. Accordingly the results of continuing operations reported for the three and six month periods in 2008 and 2007 include only the financial results associated with the Company’s ongoing operations. Following the sale of VISaer, the Company has two core operating businesses: ChemFree Corporation and CoreCard Software, Inc.
Total revenue from continuing operations in the three month period ended June 30, 2008 was $3,719,000, an increase of 23 percent compared to the second quarter of 2007. Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2008 also reflected strong period-to-period growth, increasing 24 percent to $7,795,000 compared to $6,308,000 in the six month period in 2007.
The increase in revenue reported for the second quarter and year-to-date periods of 2008 is attributed to strong sales in both domestic and international markets of the ChemFree subsidiary’s SmartWasher® parts washer system. Offsetting part of the ChemFree revenue increase was a decline in software revenue recognized at the CoreCard subsidiary. Revenue related to software licenses tends to vary significantly from quarter to quarter based on the timing of delivery and customer acceptance of licensed software because the Company presently defers revenue associated with in-process contracts until each contract is complete. At June 30, 2008, the Company has approximately $1.8 million in deferred revenue associated with in-process software contracts which is expected to be recognizable upon completion of the various contracts within the next several quarters.
According to J. Leland Strange, Chief Executive Officer of ISC, “ChemFree continues to build a solid business addressing both domestic and international markets, although repeating the record growth of the first half of 2008 for the balance of the year is unlikely. We continue to devote significant resources to support CoreCard Software’s progress in rolling out its transaction processing software for applications such as prepaid cards and revolving credit cards. We expect CoreCard’s contribution to revenue will increase as more customer contracts are completed.”
The Company expects to file its Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2008 with the Securities and Exchange Commission today. For additional information about the Company’s reported results, investors will be able to access the Form 10-Q on the Company’s website at www.intelsys.com or at the SEC site, www.sec.gov.
