License revenue increased to $9.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015, up from $8.6 million for the same quarter last year. Subscription revenue grew to $6.4 million, up from $4.5 million for last year’s fiscal second quarter, driven by continued growth of QAD Enterprise Cloud sales. Maintenance and other revenue rose to $36.1 million, up from $34.3 million for last year’s fiscal second quarter. Professional services revenue increased to $21.5 million, up from $17.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

Net income for the fiscal 2015 second quarter was $985,000, or $0.06 per diluted Class A share and $0.05 per diluted Class B share, compared with $1.3 million, or $0.08 per diluted Class A share and $0.07 per diluted Class B share, last year.

“We are very pleased with our performance for the second quarter and first half of the year, delivering record revenues for these periods. Continued impressive growth in our cloud business was led by a strong performance from our European region,” said Karl Lopker, Chief Executive Officer of QAD Inc. “QAD is well positioned to benefit from the strength in the global manufacturing economy through our robust Cloud ERP solution.”

Gross profit for the fiscal 2015 second quarter equaled $39.8 million, or 55 percent of total revenue, compared with $36.4 million, or 56 percent of total revenue, for the fiscal 2014 second quarter.

Total operating expenses amounted to $37.8 million, or 52 percent of total revenue, for the fiscal 2015 second quarter, versus $34.9 million, or 54 percent of total revenue, for the same quarter last year. The increase includes expenses related to the company’s cloud business, where revenue was not yet recognized, as well as increased personnel and travel.

Operating income for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was $2.1 million, which included $1.7 million in stock compensation expense. For the second quarter of fiscal 2014, operating income was $1.5 million, which included $1.6 million in stock compensation expense.

For the first six months of fiscal 2015, total revenue rose 11 percent to $141.5 million, up from $127.1 million for the first six months of fiscal 2014. The company reported net income of $909,000, or $0.06 per diluted Class A share and $0.05 per diluted Class B share, for the fiscal 2015 year-to-date period, compared with breakeven performance for the fiscal 2014 year-to-date period.

QAD’s cash and equivalents balance was $75.3 million at July 31, 2014, compared with $76.0 million at January 31, 2014. Cash provided by operations for the first six months of fiscal 2015 was $5.5 million, compared with $13.0 million for the first six months of fiscal 2014.

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of fiscal 2015, QAD anticipates total revenue of approximately $71 million and earnings of approximately $0.12 per diluted Class A share and $0.10 per diluted Class B share. QAD is raising its fiscal 2015 revenue growth guidance to approximately 8 percent from fiscal 2014. The company continues to expect earnings to be approximately equal to fiscal 2014.

Calculation of Earnings Per Share

EPS is reported based on the company’s dual-class share structure, and includes a calculation for both Class A and Class B shares. Since Class A shares have rights to 120% of dividends paid on Class B shares, net income is apportioned so that earnings per share attributable to a Class A share are 120% of earnings per share attributable to a Class B share.
