Fiscal 2021 Guidance

The company is  not issuing any guidance for fiscal 2021 considering the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. It will decide on the guidance after evaluating the scenario once it stabilizes and there is more confidence in the macro environment.

Summing Up

NextGen exited the fiscal first quarter on a strong note. The company benefited from its Recurring segment in the quarter under review. Expansion in adjusted operating margin is another plus. Meanwhile, NextGen’s Software, hardware and other non-recurring revenues were soft in the quarter under review. Significant contraction in gross margin remains a concern. Additionally, NextGen faces stiff rivalry in the MedTech space.
