Majesco Announces Record First Quarter

·13-min read

First quarter total revenue of $41.2M up 10.6% YOY
Product Revenue of $19.9M, 48.2% of total revenue, and increase of 24.6% YOY
Record Sales performance and total backlog of $254M
First quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $6.0M

Majesco (NASDAQ:MJCO), a global provider of cloud insurance platform software, today announced strong financial results for the fiscal 2021 first quarter ended June 30, 2020.

"Q1 FY21 was a record quarter for Majesco across all our key performance metrics of Total Revenue, Product Revenue, New Sales and Margin," stated Adam Elster, Majesco’s CEO. "Companies of all sizes are turning to Majesco to partner with on their digital transformation journey and the team demonstrated excellent performance against our cloud product-based strategy. Our relentless focus on delivering innovation and customer success has fuelled our growth and solidified our leadership."

"We remain confident in our strategy, committed to its execution and believe we have the right platform in place to handle the near-term challenges associated with COVID-19, while continuing to pursue long-term growth opportunities," Elster continued.

"We are extremely excited to partner with Thoma Bravo, a firm with an established track record working with companies transitioning to the cloud."

Key Revenue Drivers:

  • License, subscription, and maintenance revenue (product revenue) of $19.9 million, up 24.6% for the same period last fiscal year, and constituted 48.2% of total revenue for the first quarter 2021.

  • Professional services revenue of $21.3 million, down 5.4% compared to the same period in the previous fiscal as a percentage of total revenue.

  • Majesco’s total order backlog on June 30, 2020 was $254 million. Previously Majesco was reporting a 12 month executable backlog only.

First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

  • Revenue was $41.2 million, compared to $37.3 million for the same period last fiscal year. The 10.6% increase in revenue is primarily due to the inclusion of the Inspro business.

  • Gross profit was $19.4 million (47.0% of revenue), compared to $19.9 million (53.3% of revenue) for the same period last fiscal year. The primary reason for the decline is that in the period ended June 30, 2019, there was a one time license fee which impacted the Gross Margin.

  • Research and development (R&D) expenses were $3.8 million (9.3% of revenue), compared to $5.4 million (14.7% of revenue) for the same period last fiscal year. The company has rationalized its R&D investments in the international business through transition from a geographical investment approach to a more global product management and development structure and repurposed some of the teams to deliver new business.

  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $11.6 million (28.2% of revenue), compared to $11.8 million (31.7% of revenue) for the same period last fiscal year.

  • Net income was $1.3 million or $0.03 basic and diluted per share as compared to net income of $1.3 million or $0.03 basic and diluted per share, for the same period last fiscal year. Net Income for the period was impacted by one time M&A expenses of $ 1.8 million for the Inspro acquisition.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $6.0 million (14.5% of revenue), compared to $4.7 million (12.7% of revenue) for the same period last fiscal year.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures. Reconciliation tables of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as used in this press release to GAAP are included in the financial section of this press release

Other Highlights

  • Majesco had cash and cash equivalents, including short term investments of $30.9 million at June 30, 2020, compared to $51.5 million at March 31, 2020. The drop was primarily on account of funding of the Inspro transaction.

  • Majesco had $ 1.1 million in indebtedness as of June 30, 2020, compared $ 0.1 million as of March 31, 2020. This indebtedness consisted primarily of software and equipment lease liabilities assumed in the acquisition of Inspro Technologies.

  • 11 successful Go-Lives during the first quarter of fiscal 2021.

  • 2 new customer additions and 1 customer signed up to migrate from On-Prem to Cloud.

  • Cloud customer count stood at 79 at the end of first quarter 2021.

  • The Company successfully acquired Inspro Technologies, a Philadelphia based insurance software business. This transaction closed on April 1, 2020.

Given the pending transaction with Thoma Bravo, Majesco will not be hosting a Q1 earnings call.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating our business, we consider and use EBITDA as a supplemental measure of operating performance. We define EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We present EBITDA because we believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a measure of financial performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA before stock-based compensation and mergers and acquisitions expenses.

The terms EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and are not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as an analytical tool, and when assessing Majesco’s operating performance, investors should not consider EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA in isolation, or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Among other things, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our actual cash expenditures. Other companies may calculate similar measures differently than Majesco, limiting their usefulness as comparative tools. We compensate for these limitations by relying on U.S. GAAP results and using EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental.
