Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSII) announced today that it has won four gold and six silver Stevie® awards in the 12th Annual American Business AwardsSM, including a gold award for Company of the Year in the Health Products and Services category. Other gold awards include those for Marketing Team of the Year (Tradeshow and Events Team); Best Marketing or Sales Brochure or Kit - Online/Electronic (ICD-10 educational brochure); and, Support Staffer of the Year (Desiree Vale, Executive Assistant).

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S. are eligible to submit entries including public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. More than 3,300 entries from companies of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration across 200+ categories in this year’s competition.

Quality Systems and its NextGen Healthcare subsidiary (QSI/NextGen) earned Stevie Awards across many categories, ranging from company, events and departments to marketing and communications.

“The American Business Awards is a noteworthy competition in that it acknowledges all organizational and functional areas of companies. This year, our Company, as well as some members of our team of 2,600 employees worldwide, a few of our departments, including marketing, human resources and talent services, along with several product marketing programs, were all recognized by the ABA judges. This is a testament to the depth of our talent across many functional areas of the Company. We thank our employees for their commitment and the judges for recognizing and honoring Quality Systems,” said Steven T. Plochocki, president and chief executive officer.

“The QSI/NextGen Healthcare marketing team was well represented in this year’s ABAs. The two gold Stevie Awards we earned for efforts put forth by our department are indicative of the team’s dedication, passion and industry expertise. Our tradeshow and events team is small yet powerful and was hailed for the nearly 500 meetings it organizes and coordinates annually, including our user group meeting, which attracts nearly 4,000 attendees. We appreciate that the judges took note of the team’s creativity and attention to detail,” explained Kelli Castellano, senior vice president of marketing and communications.

Desiree Vale, manager, executive suite, commented on her gold Stevie award: “I am so honored that the QSI management team believes in me to have nominated me for this award. I am very fortunate to work in a job I love and be afforded the opportunity to be recognized for a job well done.”

Michael Gallagher, president of The Stevie Awards, commented on Quality Systems’ participation in the program: “Quality Systems fared very well in this year’s American Business Awards competition, showing its strengths across various categories of the contest. It is an honor to recognize and celebrate the many outstanding organizations and individuals that participated, with Quality Systems being among the top Stevie Award winners. All winners of Stevie Awards this year should be very proud that their achievements stood out amongst the prestigious judging panel.”

SAFE HARBOR PROVISIONS FOR FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This news release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including but not limited to, statements regarding future events, developments in the healthcare sector and regulatory framework, the Company's future performance, as well as management's expectations, beliefs, intentions, plans, estimates or projections relating to the future (including, without limitation, statements concerning revenue, net income, and earnings per share). Risks and uncertainties exist that may cause the results to differ materially from those set forth in these forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause the anticipated results to differ from those described in the forward-looking statements and additional risks and uncertainties are set forth in Part I, Item A of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013, including but not limited to: the volume and timing of systems sales and installations; length of sales cycles and the installation process; the possibility that products will not achieve or sustain market acceptance; seasonal patterns of sales and customer buying behavior; impact of incentive payments under The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on sales and the ability of the Company to meet continued certification requirements; the development by competitors of new or superior technologies; the timing, cost and success or failure of new product and service introductions, development and product upgrade releases; undetected errors or bugs in software; product liability; changing economic, political or regulatory influences in the health-care industry; changes in product-pricing policies; availability of third-party products and components; competitive pressures including product offerings, pricing and promotional activities; the Company's ability or inability to attract and retain qualified personnel; possible regulation of the Company's software by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration; changes of accounting estimates and assumptions used to prepare the prior periods' financial statements; and general economic conditions. A significant portion of the Company's quarterly sales of software product licenses and computer hardware is concluded in the last month of a fiscal quarter, generally with a concentration of such revenues earned in the final ten business days of that month. Due to these and other factors, the Company's revenues and operating results are very difficult to forecast. A major portion of the Company's costs and expenses, such as personnel and facilities, are of a fixed nature and, accordingly, a shortfall or decline in quarterly and/or annual revenues typically results in lower profitability or losses. As a result, comparison of the Company's period-to-period financial performance is not necessarily meaningful and should not be relied upon as an indicator of future performance. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
