Highlights:

Computer Programs and Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPSI), a leading provider of healthcare information solutions, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.51 (fifty-one cents) per share, payable on May 24, 2013, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on May 9, 2013.

Total revenues for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013, were $49.5 million, compared with total revenues of $44.5 million for the prior-year first quarter. Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, increased 23% to $6.9 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, compared with $5.6 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. Cash provided by operations for the first quarter of 2013 was $5.5 million, compared with $8.6 million for the prior-year first quarter. Cash collections for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013, were $43.1 million, compared with cash collections of $43.9 million for the prior-year first quarter.

During 2012, the Company installed systems under contracts for which a portion of the consideration was to be received and revenue recognized in subsequent periods upon hospitals successfully achieving Meaningful Use designation. Although the related system installations were substantially completed during 2012, the total remaining accumulated unrecognized revenue related to such contracts as of March 31, 2013, was approximately $5.2 million.

For the first quarter of 2013, current financing receivables increased $10.5 million as a result of extended payment terms for new system installations during the first quarter. Under the extended payment terms, payment consideration is being deferred until the earlier of successfully achieving Meaningful Use designation or over a 12-month period beginning two years from the date of installation. Based on its experience with similar installations, the Company anticipates the average payment term of these receivables will be nine months from the date of installation. Revenue for these installations is recognized when the installation is complete.

CPSI’s 12-month backlog as of March 31, 2013, was $157.7 million, consisting of $46.9 million in non-recurring system purchases and $110.8 million in recurring payments for support, Business Management Services and SAAS contracts. The backlog amounts exclude amounts to be recognized in subsequent periods upon hospitals successfully achieving Meaningful Use designation.

A listen-only simulcast and replay of CPSI’s first quarter 2013 conference call will be available on-line at and on April 26, 2013, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time.
