IRVINE, Calif., May 28, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:QSII) today announced the results of operations for its fiscal 2010 fourth quarter and year ended March 31, 2010. The Company posted record net revenues of $78.5 million in the fourth quarter, an increase of 19% from $65.8 million generated during the same quarter of the prior year. The Company reported net income of $13.1 million, up 15% when compared with net income of $11.4 million for the comparable quarter last year. Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.45 in the quarter, an increase of 13% versus $0.40 fully diluted earnings per share reported in the same quarter last year.
The fourth quarter results were negatively impacted by amortization of acquired intangibles and transaction costs related to the acquisition of Opus Healthcare Solutions, Inc. Also impacting the results were decreases in collections from the Company's revenue cycle management (RCM) division due to record snowfall across the East Coast and seasonality.
Revenue for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2010 was $291.8 million, an increase of 19% when compared with fiscal year 2009 revenue of $245.5 million. Net income for fiscal year 2010 was $48.4 million, an increase of 5% from fiscal 2009 net income of $46.1 million. Fully diluted earnings per share increased to $1.68 in fiscal year 2010 from $1.62 earned during fiscal year 2009, up 4%.
The Company also announced the resignation of Chief Operating Officer Philip N. Kaplan. Operational responsibility of the Company's business units has been assumed by Patrick Cline, president of Quality Systems.
Steven T. Plochocki, chief executive officer, commented on the results, stating: "We continue to focus on strategically positioning the Company for growth and additional market penetration expected to result from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) by prudently investing in sales, marketing, implementation and training. Phil's contributions and efforts in preparing the infrastructure of the Company for the five-year stimulus run proved extremely beneficial, and we thank him for his contributions."

SAFE HARBOR PROVISIONS FOR FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This news release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Statements regarding future events, developments, the Company's future performance, as well as management's expectations, beliefs, intentions, plans, estimates or projections relating to the future (including, without limitation, statements concerning revenue and net income), are forward-looking statements within the meaning of these laws and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Management believes that these forward looking statements are reasonable and are based on reasonable assumptions and forecasts, however, undue reliance should not be placed on such statements that speak only as of the date hereof. Moreover, these forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, some of which are outlined below. As a result, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated by the forward-looking statements. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements are: the volume and timing of systems sales and installations; length of sales cycles and the installation process; the possibility that products will not achieve or sustain market acceptance; seasonal patterns of sales and customer buying behavior; the development by competitors of new or superior technologies; the timing, cost and success or failure of new product and service introductions, development and product upgrade releases; undetected errors or bugs in software; product liability; changing economic, political or regulatory influences in the health-care industry; changes in product-pricing policies; availability of third-party products and components; competitive pressures including product offerings, pricing and promotional activities; the Company's ability or inability to attract and retain qualified personnel; possible regulation of the Company's software by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration; uncertainties concerning threatened, pending and new litigation against the Company including related professional services fees; uncertainties concerning the amount and timing of professional fees incurred by the Company generally; changes of accounting estimates and assumptions used to prepare the prior periods' financial statements; general economic conditions; and the risk factors detailed from time to time in the Company's periodic reports and registration statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A significant portion of the Company's quarterly sales of software product licenses and computer hardware is concluded in the last month of the fiscal quarter, generally with a concentration of such revenues earned in the final ten business days of that month. Due to these and other factors, the Company's revenues and operating results are very difficult to forecast. A major portion of the Company's costs and expenses, such as personnel and facilities, are of a fixed nature and, accordingly, a shortfall or decline in quarterly and/or annual revenues typically results in lower profitability or losses. As a result, comparison of the Company's period-to-period financial performance is not necessarily meaningful and should not be relied upon as an indicator of future performance. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
