Intelligent Systems Reports Preliminary 2019 Results

NORCROSS, Ga., April 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intelligent Systems Corporation [NYSE American: INS;] announced today its preliminary financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.  

“We are pleased to report preliminary first quarter 2019 revenues of about $7 million and preliminary income from operations of $2.5 to $2.7 million. This is significantly higher than the 1st quarter of 2018 for both revenue and operating profit. Professional services continue to make up a large portion of our current revenue as we have more demand for the expertise of our CoreCard team than hours available. We continue to grow and train to be better able to meet the demands of our customers,” commented Leland Strange, CEO of Intelligent Systems.

“As we often say, license revenue may vary considerably from quarter to quarter and even professional services can vary because in some cases we may not charge for a block of hours as a part of a larger license or processing contract. Although we want to provide our shareholders insight on the revenue streams, don’t be surprised when any one of the revenue sources spike in some quarters or do not show growth in a specific quarter. We continue to believe 2019 will be a very good year for the company and the first quarter is a good way to start the year,” stated Strange.

While it will be a couple weeks before we complete and report our final results, we wanted to provide you some preliminary information. Our final results may differ somewhat from these preliminary estimates.
