Ra`anana, Israel, February 02, 2005 - NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE), the global provider of advanced solutions that enable organizations to extract insight from interactions to drive performance, today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ending December 31, 2004.

Fourth quarter GAAP revenue was $69.5 million at the upper end of the Company's guidance range.  Fourth quarter GAAP revenue represents a 13% increase from $61.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2003, and a 9% sequential increase from $63.5 million in the third quarter of 2004.  Revenues for the year reached a record high of $252.6 million, a 13% increase from $224.3 million in 2003.

Gross margin in the fourth quarter reached a record 56%, up from 54.7% in the third quarter of 2004 and 55.5% in the fourth quarter a year ago. Gross margin for the year reached 54.8% compared with 52.6% achieved for the year 2003.

 

Operating expenses from continuing operations, excluding restructuring and settlement costs, increased slightly to $30 million but declined as a percent of revenue to 43.1% compared with 46.7% in the third quarter of 2004 and 44.6% in the fourth quarter of 2003.  Operating margin increased to 12.9% from 8.1% in the third quarter of 2004 and 10.9% in the fourth quarter of 2003. For the year, operating margin increased to 7.9% from 5.2% in 2003.

 

2003 figures are reported both on a GAAP basis, which include a $7.1 million one-time restructuring and settlement costs, and on a non-GAAP basis excluding this charge, to make year-on-year comparisons more meaningful.

 

On a GAAP basis, fourth quarter net income from continuing operations was $9 million, or $0.47 per fully diluted share, compared with net income of $5.2 million, or $0.28 per share, on a fully diluted basis, in the third quarter of 2004. In the fourth quarter of 2003, GAAP net income from continuing operations was $1.6 million, or $0.09 per share. Excluding restructuring and settlement charges, non-GAAP net income from continuing operation in the fourth quarter of 2003 was $6.7 million, or $0.37 per fully diluted share.

____ 3 ____ 


 

 

Net income from continuing operations for the year was $21.3 million or $1.14 per fully diluted share, compared with net income from continuing operations of $5.6 million or $0.33 per fully diluted share for 2003.  Excluding restructuring and settlement charges, non-GAAP net income from continuing operations for 2003 was $12.4 million or $0.74 per fully diluted share.

Total cash and equivalents at December 31, 2004 rose to $165.9 million compared with $146 million at September 30, 2004 and with $107.3 million at the end of 2003.  DSOs at year-end stood at 67 days compared with 68 days at the end of the third quarter and 74 days at the end of 2003.  The improvement during the year reflects aggressive working capital management.

 

Commenting on the quarterly results, Haim Shani, president and CEO of NICE said, "We had a strong finish to 2004, with revenue and net income reaching record levels. The 9% sequential increase in Q4 revenue represents growth in all parts of our business and across all regions. Our continued improvement in gross margin reflects improvement in both product and services margins."

"2004 was a pivotal year for NICE, with record results in all the performance parameters", said Mr. Shani, "We grew our revenue by 13% and reported a gross margin that was more than 220 basis points higher than 2003.  We achieved record profitability, and generated more than $44 million in operating cash flow for the year."

 

"In 2004 we strengthened our leadership position in our core recording and quality monitoring business, and continued to lead the VoIP market for contact centers and trading floors. We also made good progress in shifting from a product-focused company to a solution- focused company. Towards this end we successfully introduced our advanced content analytics applications for performance improvement and security enhancement.  Our enterprise interaction solution NICE Perform has already been adopted by 15 different customers, and has been instrumental both in winning competitive situations and in replacing existing competitive products."

 

"We leveraged our TCS acquisition to grow EMEA market share, and advanced cooperation with our strategic partners for the enterprise and public sectors, achieving significant wins with Avaya, IPC, Motorola and IBM. Overall we finished 2004 well positioned to continue to reward shareholders in the future."

 

"For 2005 we reiterate our previous guidance and expect to see 9 - 11% growth in revenues from the $252.6 million reported in 2004 to between $275 and $280 million and a 23 - 32% increase from 2004 EPS of $1.14 to between $1.4 and $1.5 per share for 2005.  We expect normal seasonality in Q1 2005 with revenue of between $63.5 and $66.5 million, a 9 - 14% increase from $58.3 million in Q1 2004, with EPS between $0.24 and $0.29, a 71 - 109% increase from $0.14 in Q1 2004.  This demonstrates the Company`s strong business model that leverages its operational platform, which translates into greater bottom line growth and higher profitability."
