BLUEPHOENIX SOLUTIONS REPORTS RECORD RESULTS FOR THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2006
Herzlia, Israel - May 11, 2006 - BluePhoenix Solutions Ltd. (NASDAQ: BPHX), the leader in Enterprise IT Modernization, today reported record financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2006.
For the first quarter of 2006, BluePhoenix reported record sales of $16 million, up 14% from $14.1 million in the first quarter of 2005, and up 4% as compared to $15.4 million in the prior quarter. This was the fifth quarter of sequential growth. Operating income for the first quarter was a record $1.7 million, up 110% from $815,000 in the first quarter of 2005 and up 10% from $1.5 million in the prior quarter. As a percentage of revenues, the operating income for the first quarter climbed to a record 11% as compared to 6% in the first quarter in 2005 and 10% in the previous quarter.
First quarter adjusted net income, excluding non-cash financial expenses mainly related to the convertible debentures, was $ 1.2 million or $0.09 per share, as compared to $516,000, or $0.05 per share in the first quarter of 2005. Net income for the first quarter grew three fold and reached $949,000, or $0.07 per share, as compared to $309,000, or $0.02 per share, in the first quarter of 2005, and increased by 17% from $809,000, or $0.06 per share, in the prior quarter.
We are proud of our sequentially growing revenues and earnings. During the first quarter of 2006, BluePhoenix closed numerous agreements and received purchase orders that increased its backlog for the next 12 months running to $70 million. We attribute the revenue growth to two key factors. The first factor is the growing realization by major enterprises, that are dependent on legacy core systems, of the inevitability of IT modernization for staying effective, competitive and efficient. In addition, there is a steadily growing awareness of BluePhoenix as a key leader in IT modernization with a significant installed base. Our operating margin and bottom line improvements have largely been the result of increasing efficiency due to our R&D program, offshore operations, and strict cost controls. Said Arik Kilman, Chief Executive Officer.
The unique advantage of our technology has always been its generic capabilities. Our solutions can be adopted and used by any industry, since we modernize the application, regardless of the industry our customer operates in. In addition, we are currently expanding our offering model by providing ongoing post-migration support to our customers, thereby generating recurring revenues from our installed base. Our studies of this market have shown that our cross-industry skills such as expertise in financial institutions, traditional manufacturing and retail are highly regarded in the market, and actually generate an additional appeal to our customers and partners. We strongly believe this will become a source of significant revenue.
