Intelligent Systems Reports Third Quarter 2019 Results

NORCROSS, Ga., Nov. 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intelligent Systems Corporation [NYSE American: INS], the leading provider of innovative credit technology solutions and processing services to the financial technology and services market, announced today its financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2019.

“Our third quarter results reflect the continued success of our proven platform and unique services that translated into another quarter of significant growth for both revenue and profitability,” said Leland Strange, CEO of Intelligent Systems. “We are pleased with our third quarter revenue of $9.5 million, which was up 76 percent, matching our previously reported preliminary estimate. Income from operations was $4.2 million, within our preliminary range of $4.0 to $4.3 million. Revenue was driven by an increase in the number of customers and accounts, as well as an increase in the number and value of professional services contracts completed during the third quarter. The step up in income from operations was in line with our expectations as license revenue contributed significantly more to total revenue for the third quarter.”

“We continue to make the needed investments in research and development as we grow our Processing Services business and build infrastructure that will allow us to scale in future years. We are adding new processing customers at a faster pace than we are adding new license customers, resulting in steady growth in the processing revenue stream although it is still relatively small. As we head into the final months of the year, we remain optimistic that the momentum we’ve experienced to date will carry into 2020.”

Financial Highlights for the Third Quarter of 2019

Total revenues of $9,522,000 in the three-month period represented growth of 76 percent compared to the same period in 2018.
