Jack Henry (JKHY) Q1 Earnings Beat Estimates, Revenue Improves Y/Y
Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (JKHY) recently released its report for the first quarter of fiscal 2023, revealing earnings per share that outperformed Zacks Consensus estimates. Despite a decrease in the bottom line compared to the year-ago fiscal quarter, the report indicated improvements in revenue.
Total revenue for the quarter was $473.9 million, surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $466 million. This represented an increase of 7.7% compared to the $439.6 million reported in the year-ago fiscal quarter. The growth was primarily driven by an increase in service support revenue and solid growth in processing revenue.
Service support revenue, which accounted for 62% of total revenue, increased to $294.4 million from $263.6 million in the year-ago fiscal quarter. This $30.8 million increase was attributed to higher data processing hosting fees, increased hardware and software usage/subscription revenue, and a positive contribution from the process category.
Jack Henry’s card revenue and payment processing revenue also contributed to the company’s top-line growth. Card revenue grew 11.4% year-over-year to $109.3 million, while payment processing revenue increased by 12.5% to $58.6 million.
The company’s total operating expenses rose 9.7% to $384.7 million compared to the prior-year fiscal quarter. This increase was primarily due to higher direct costs and personnel costs, including benefit expenses related to the Payrailz acquisition.
