CoreCard Corporation Reports First Quarter 2022 Results
NORCROSS, Ga., May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoreCard Corporation [NYSE: CCRD], 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 quarter ended March 31, 2022.
"CoreCard’s strong performance continued in the first quarter and resulted in total net revenue of $24.3 million which actually exceeded the high end of our expectations,” said Leland Strange, CEO of CoreCard Corporation. "Our significant top-line growth was driven by $12.5 million in license revenue, combined with 14% growth in professional services revenue and processing and maintenance revenue growth of 56%. We continue to invest in our platform and processing capabilities, which are showing encouraging results. We also continue to onboard new customers through our partnership with Deserve, primarily their new credit customers. A new customer went live with Deserve on our platform in the first quarter and we have several other implementations with them in progress. We have several other partners that value the features and functionality the CoreCard platform offers that are bringing their credit customers to CoreCard. CoreCard provides a best-in-class platform that is extremely well positioned to capture the growing demand for next-generation card management platforms by large and complex modern card issuers."
Mr. Strange continued, "Due to solid performance during the first quarter, we are raising our topline growth expectations to a range of 25% to 30% for fiscal 2022, an increase of five percentage points at the midpoint of our previously provided guidance. Additionally, we repurchased another $2.3 million of shares in the quarter and we extended the buyback authorization for an additional $20 million. The opportunity ahead of us is significant, and CoreCard remains a growth business focused on meeting the evolving needs of modern issuers while generating long-term value for our shareholders."
