Park City Group Reports Financial Results for the Fiscal Second Quarter of 2020

Recurring Revenue Increases to 84% of Total Revenue and Tier 2 Hubs Grow 88% Since June

Cash from Operations Increases 46%

Park City Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:PCYG), the parent company of ReposiTrak, Inc., which operates a B2B ecommerce, compliance, and supply chain platform that partners with retailers, wholesalers, and their suppliers, to accelerate sales, control risk, and improve supply chain efficiencies, announced financial results for the second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2019.

Second Quarter Financial and Recent Business Highlights:

  • Total revenue decreased 13% year-over-year due to lower one-time revenue.
  • Recurring revenue increased 3% comparatively, constituting 83% of total revenue.
  • Operating expense increased 8% year-over-year due to higher MarketPlace costs.
  • Net income of $663,000.
  • EPS $0.03 vs. $0.08 in the prior year second quarter.
  • Fiscal year-to-date operating cash flow grew 46% to $2.7 million. Cash totaled $19 million.
  • Repurchased 174,615 shares at an average price of $4.80 for a total of nearly $838,000.

Randall K. Fields, Chairman and CEO of Park City Group commented, "We have systematically increased recurring revenue, expanded our base of Tier 2 hubs, and increased our cash balance, validating our confidence in long-term success. Our monthly recurring revenue increased more than 8% compared to last December, approximately double the pace of September, demonstrating the acceleration of our progress. In addition, we have signed agreements with several large Tier 2 customers which, absent any additional new sales, will result in double-digit recurring revenue growth by the end of our fiscal year in June. To better address the growing opportunity, we have added four net new salespeople to focus on recurring revenue initiatives underscoring our confidence in this initiative. Combined, these two initiatives will drive sustainable growth for Park City Group.

"Simultaneously, our Out-of-Stock (OOS) initiative continued to gain momentum, as evidenced by FMI - The Food Industry Association’s endorsement of ReposiTrak's OOS Management Solution to address the grocery industry's long-term and growing problem of out-of-stocks," continued Mr. Fields. "In fact, we announced that 70 percent of vendors using our Out-Of-Stock solution have reduced OOS by an average of 46 percent across more than 12,175 stores. We also added new MarketPlace buyers during the quarter, and our confidence in the long-term viability of this initiative continues to grow.

"This progress drove solid net income and more than $2.7 million in operating cash flow fiscal year-to-date, despite $2.4 million less one-time revenue," added Mr. Fields. "We also advanced our efforts to expand our geographical footprint by adding new customers in the United Kingdom, opening a new and lucrative market for us. We are seeing meaningful progress in each of our product offerings, creating sustained profitability and maintaining a strong balance sheet."

Second Quarter Financial Results (three months ended December 31, 2019 vs. three months ended December 31, 2018):

Total revenue declined 13% to $4.8 million as compared to $5.6 million due to lower one-time revenue in the current period. Total operating expense was $4.2 million, an 8% increase from $3.9 million. GAAP net income was $663,000, or 14% of revenue, versus $1.7 million, or 30% of revenue, and GAAP net income to common shareholders was $516,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to $1.5 million, or $0.08 per diluted share.

Fiscal 2020 Year to Date Results (six months ended December 31, 2019 vs. six months ended December 31, 2018):

Total revenue declined 16% to $9.6 million for the six months ended December 31, 2019, as compared to $11.5 million during the same period a year ago due to lower one-time revenue in the current period. Total operating expenses were $8.9 million, a slight increase from $8.8 million a year ago. GAAP net income was $800,000, or 8% revenue, versus $2.7 million, or 24% of revenue, a year ago, and GAAP net income to common shareholders was $548,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to $2.4 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, a year ago.

    Elon Musk Calls Bill Gates Underwhelming After Billionaire Buys a Porsche

    If he was expecting kind words in return from Elon Musk, he apparently shouldn't have spoken about challenges that still lie ahead -- or about his new Porsche. Gates, the billionaire co-founder of Microsoft Corp., spoke with a YouTube influencer last week about the challenges of reducing emissions to slow climate change. “And certainly Tesla, if you had to name one company that's helped drive that, it's them,” Gates told YouTuber Marques Brownlee.

    Tesla's Bull Case Price Target Raised to $1,200 at  Morgan Stanley

    Tesla was rising sharply Tuesday after analysts at Morgan Stanley reversed their bear case against the electric vehicle company and turned bullish with an increased price target that represents a 50% upside from the stock's closing price on Friday. Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas now has a $1,200 price target on the stock, up from the firm's previous view of $650 a share and about 50% higher than the company's closing price on Friday of just above $800. Jonas' price target would give Tesla a market cap of $220 billion.

    Stocks under pressure as Apple sounds warning on coronavirus

    MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell a percent, while Tokyo's Nikkei slid 1.4%, dragged down by tech stocks. China's blue chip shares gave up 0.5% after a strong rally on Monday (February 17), fuelled by hopes Beijing would introduce more policy stimulus. Apple said factories in China were re-opening but ramping up more slowly than expected.

    Roku, Inc. Just Released Its Yearly Results And Analysts Are Updating Their Estimates

    Revenues came in at US$1.1b, in line with forecasts and the company reported a statutory loss of US$0.52 per share, roughly in line with expectations. Following the result, analysts have updated their earnings model, and it would be good to know whether they think there's been a strong change in the company's prospects, or if it's business as usual. So we gathered the latest post-earnings forecasts to see what analysts' statutory forecasts suggest is in store for next year.

    Shades of Detroit? Germany's auto heartlands in peril as 'golden age' fades

    At the Schmitts' plant in Hallstadt, workers are trying to avoid forced layoffs; at a Bosch factory in nearby Bamberg, pay cuts and reduced hours have been agreed, as has investment in new fuel cell technology. With pockets of rising joblessness in the affluent, auto-producing heartlands of Bavaria and Baden-Wuerttemberg in southern Germany, there are serious implications for a country which relies on the car industry for roughly 5% of its economic output and, and an important part of its national identity. "Germany is entering uncharted waters.
