MOBILE, Ala., Apr 22, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --Computer Programs and Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPSI):

First Quarter Highlights:

  • Revenues of $31.5 million;
  • 12-month backlog of $116.3 million;
  • Earnings per diluted share of $0.27;
  • Cash provided by operations of $5.8 million; and
  • Quarterly dividend of $0.36 per share.

Computer Programs and Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPSI), a leading provider of healthcare information solutions, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.36 (thirty-six cents) per share, payable on May 27, 2010, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on May 11, 2010.

Total revenues for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010, increased 4.7% to $31.5 million, compared with total revenues of $30.1 million for the prior-year period. Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2010, decreased 27.0% to $2.9 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared with $4.0 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2009. Cash provided by operations for the first quarter of 2010 was $5.8 million, compared with $3.7 million of cash provided by operations for the prior-year period.

Commenting on the results, Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI, stated, "Even though client decisions to reschedule two system installations to later in the year adversely affected our results for the quarter, we are generally pleased with these results and believe they are consistent with the level of activity we expected. In addition, as indicated by our second quarter guidance, we believe our investment over the past year in adding staff to increase our implementation capacity is beginning to show significant returns. Not only will we be operating at higher capacity for clinical software implementations for the second quarter, but we also expect this trend to continue for the remainder of the year and beyond as the effect of the stimulus funds for EMR adoption is increasingly felt."

For the second quarter of 2010, the Company anticipates total revenues of $35.0 million to $36.5 million and net income of approximately $3.9 million to $4.1 million, or $0.36 to $0.38 per diluted share. CPSI's 12-month backlog as of March 31, 2010, was $116.3 million, consisting of $29.7 million in non-recurring system purchases and $86.6 million in recurring payments for support, Business Management Services, ASP and ISP contracts.

A listen-only simulcast and replay of CPSI's first quarter 2010 conference call will be available on-line at and on April 23, 2010, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time.
