Intelligent Systems Reports Second Quarter 2020 Results

NORCROSS, Ga., Aug. 04, 2020 (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 quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“Second quarter results were in-line with expectations and continued to demonstrate the adaptability of our business model and our ability to uniquely service our customers,” said Leland Strange, CEO of Intelligent Systems. “We achieved revenues of $8.1 million, representing a 7% increase over the prior year period. As anticipated, our year-over-year, top-line growth was driven by both professional services and processing and maintenance, with no license revenue as we did not see any customers achieve new tiers. Our customers and accounts increased in number and value for professional services during the second quarter. Our income from operations and net income were also up slightly from the same quarter the previous year.

“Throughout the quarter, we continued to provide high-quality, on-time delivery for our clients despite the challenging environment and our team maintained their focus in positioning Intelligent Systems for continued growth in a post-pandemic world. We continued to advance on our strategic objectives, making investments in talent and technology while innovating new products and services that help our clients reduce complexity as well as increase efficiencies.”

Mr. Strange continued, “Looking to the second half of the year, we are cautiously optimistic regarding the trajectory of top-line growth. Longer-term, we view the current pandemic as a temporary pause on our growth momentum and anticipate returning to growth in Fiscal 2021. While demand is subject to market fluctuations outside of our control, our margins allow us to continue to invest in the business and I am confident our agile and innovative model, combined with our solid financial position, will enable us to overcome these current challenges and regain our momentum.”
