Intelligent Systems Reports Third Quarter 2021 Results
NORCROSS, Ga., Nov. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intelligent Systems Corporation [NYSE: 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 September 30, 2021.
"Our strong performance in the first half of 2021 continued into the third quarter, and as a result, we now expect top-line growth of 30% to 35% for the full year,” said Leland Strange, CEO of Intelligent Systems. "We recognized $1.8 million in license revenue in the quarter, while also growing professional services and processing and maintenance revenue. Total revenue in the quarter was $12.9 million, a 26% increase year-over-year."
“Additionally, we continued making strategic investments that enable us to grow with existing customers while onboarding new ones. Specifically, we made R&D investments during the quarter to continue building our technology platform and in October we opened an office in Bogota, Colombia where we expect to hire and train operations and development personnel. These actions are critical steps that will expand our resources and allow us to integrate very large entities with complex needs onto the CoreCard platform.”
Mr. Strange continued, “Looking ahead, I remain pleased with CoreCard’s trajectory and excited about the opportunities ahead. We expect fiscal 2021 revenues to be 30% to 35% above fiscal 2020, and the revolving credit platform we built is faster, more agile, more scalable and more feature advanced than anything else currently on the market. The investments we are making reinforce our capabilities and help ensure that CoreCard remains the best platform to service the evolving needs of modern card issuers.”
