Majesco Announces Fiscal 2016 Second Quarter Financial Results

Six-Month Revenue Up 42.9%
Organic Revenues Increased 13.4% Year-To-Date
Second Quarter Results Reflect Investments to Support Continued Business Momentum

Morristown, NJ – October 29, 2015 – Majesco, a global provider of software, consulting and services for insurance business transformation, today announced its financial results for the fiscal 2016 second quarter ended September 30, 2015.

“The second quarter reflects the full integration of Cover-All and Majesco, and the investments we are making in our business to create a world class software, consulting and services company exclusively focused on the global insurance industry,” commented Ketan Mehta, CEO and Co-Founder.  “I am pleased to announce that QBE, one of the world’s 20 largest insurance and reinsurance companies, has selected Majesco to build a strategic platform for their speciality division. This engagement will be implemented on Majesco’s cloud offering which is the fastest growing part of our business.”

“Several weeks ago we had the pleasure of hosting 210 current and potential customers, industry analysts, and business partners at our annual Convergence Customer Conference.  The feedback we received was encouraging.  This was our first customer conference as a combined company and highlighted the potential for cross sale opportunities of our different service offerings.  We are differentiating ourselves from others in the marketplace by focusing our success on partnering with our customers for their entire business transformation journey.  Therefore we need to have a broad product and service portfolio that is supported by an exceptional workforce.  As you can see in our financial results, we are making investments throughout our organization to accomplish this task.  We are confident these investments will position us to achieve our goal of generating annual revenues of $200 million to $225 million, and EBITDA margins of 12% to 14% within the next three years.”

“As a part of our efforts to bring additional talent with insurance expertise to the Company, Robert P. Restrepo, Jr. joined Majesco’s Board of Directors.  Since 2006, Mr. Restrepo has served as the Chairman of the Board of State Auto Financial Corporation, State Auto Mutual Insurance Company and brings extensive insurance industry leadership and experience to Majesco.  I look forward to Bob’s counsel as we continue to grow our business to property & casualty, and life & annuity insurance carriers,” concluded Mr. Mehta.

 

Second Quarter Highlights

Revenue

  • Revenue for the second quarter ended September 30, 2015 increased 47.9% to $28.2 million as compared to $19.1 million in the corresponding quarter of last year. The fiscal 2016 second quarter included revenue from the Agile Technologies business and Cover-All Technologies amounting to $8.2 million. On a sequential basis, revenue increased 21.8% compared to $23.2 million during the previous quarter ended June 30, 2015. The growth was primarily due to the full quarter impact of the revenues of Cover-All Technologies.
  • Revenue for the six month period ended September 30, 2015 increased 42.9% to $51.4 million as compared to $36.0 million in the corresponding six month period last year. The fiscal 2016 six month period included revenue from the Agile Technologies business and Cover-All Technologies amounting to $10.7 million.

 

 

Profitability

  • While gross margins during the quarter ended September 30, 2015 were higher by 5.3 percentage points as compared to the corresponding quarter last year, the growth in operating income was offset by:
    • An increase in product research and development expenses, which amounted to $4.2 million (15.0% of revenue) during the second quarter ended September 30, 2015 as compared to $2.7 million (representing 14.2% of revenue) during the quarter ended September 30, 2014.
    • An increase in SG&A expenses, which amounted to $9.5 million (33.7% of revenue) during the second quarter ended September 30, 2015 as compared to $4.5 million (23.6% of revenue) during the quarter ended September 30, 2014. This increase was primarily due to increased level of sales and marketing efforts.

 

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter ended September 30, 2015 was approximately $0.1 million (0.2% of revenue) as compared to $0.8 million (4.2% of revenue) during the corresponding quarter ended September 30, 2014. This decrease was primarily due to an increase in investment in research and development and sales and marketing during the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

 

  • While gross margins for the six month period ended September 30, 2015 were higher by 7.2 percentage points as compared to the corresponding six month period last year, the growth in operating income was offset by an increase in SG&A expenses, which amounted to $17.1 million (33.3% of revenue) for the six month period ended September 30, 2015 as compared to $10.5 million (29.1% of revenue) for the corresponding period last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the six month period ended September 30, 2015 was $1.3 million (2.5% of revenue) as compared to negative $0.5 million (-1.3% of revenue) during the corresponding six month period ended September 30, 2014. This increase was primarily due to higher gross margin for the six months ended September 30, 2015 marginally offset by an increase in the operating costs.
  • Net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 was $1.0 million, or ($0.03) per share as compared to a net loss of $0.2 million, or ($0.01) per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. Net loss for the six month period ended September 30, 2015 was $0.9 million, or ($0.03) per share as compared to a net loss of $1.1 million, or ($0.04) per share, for the corresponding six month period ended September 30, 2014.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures.  Reconciliation tables of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as used in this press release to GAAP are included in the financial section of this press release.

Balance Sheet

  • Majesco had cash and cash equivalents of $5.9 million at September 30, 2015, compared to $6.5 million at March 31, 2015.
  • Total debt at September 30, 2015 was $9.7 million, compared to $4.5 million at March 31, 2015.

 

Operating Highlights

  • The total number of new client wins during the quarter was two with an additional three upsell/cross sell wins to existing clients.
  • 12-month backlog at September 30, 2015 was $54.1 million as compared to $63.3 million at June 30, 2015.
  • New implementations during the quarter included Society Insurance, which successfully completed its business transformation with Majesco Policy, and RVOS Insurance, which successfully completed its business transformation initiative using Majesco’s P&C Suite.
  • Majesco extended its partnership with Deloitte Consulting LLP. The partnership is expected to help P&C, L&A, and Group insurers implement Majesco’s modern core solutions to realize system consolidations, improved flexibility, quicker response to market and regulatory changes, and increased speed-to-market for new products, among other potential benefits.
  • Highlighting Majesco’s solution portfolio investment, Majesco Business Analytics, an integral part of the Majesco software portfolio and Majesco Data Services offering was launched and Majesco Claims was named a ‘Visionary’ in Gartner, Inc.’s recently published report Magic Quadrant for Property Casualty Claims Management Modules.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating our business, we consider and use EBITDA as a supplemental measure of operating performance. We define EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We present EBITDA because we believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a measure of financial performance.  We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA before one-time non-recurring costs related to the merger with Cover-All Technologies and the listing of the Majesco common stock on the NYSE-MKT in connection with the merger. We also made an adjustment for non-cash stock-based compensation. Although non-cash stock-based compensation is an important aspect of the compensation paid to Majesco’s employees and executives, the grant date fair value varies based on the stock price at the time of grant, varying valuation methodologies and subjective assumptions. This makes the comparison of Majesco’s current financial results to previous and future periods difficult to interpret; therefore, Majesco believes it is useful to exclude stock-based compensation from its non-GAAP financial measures in order to highlight the performance of Majesco’s core business and to be consistent with the way many investors evaluate its performance and compare its operating results to peer companies.

The terms EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and are not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as an analytical tool, and when assessing Majesco’s operating performance, investors should not consider EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA in isolation, or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Among other things, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our actual cash expenditures. Other companies may calculate similar measures differently than Majesco, limiting their usefulness as comparative tools. We compensate for these limitations by relying on U.S. GAAP results and using EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA only supplementally.
