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


Computer Programs and Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPSI), a leading provider of healthcare information solutions, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.57 (fifty-seven cents) per share, payable on May 30, 2014, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on May 15, 2014.

Total revenues for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014, increased 5% to $52.1 million, compared with total revenues of $49.5 million for the prior-year first quarter. Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, increased 11% to $7.7 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, compared with $6.9 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.
