Intelligent Systems Corporation, the leading provider of innovative credit technology solutions and processing services to the financial technology and services market, announced today its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Our strong momentum continued into the second quarter of fiscal 2021, led by CoreCard’s flexible and agile platform in a constantly shifting environment,” said Leland Strange, CEO of Intelligent Systems. “As expected, we recognized $2.3 million in license revenue, and the total revenue for the quarter increased 66% year-over-year to $13.4 million. Our substantial top-line growth more than offset higher costs associated with our infrastructure and platform investments and resulted in meaningful growth in income from operations and net income."

While the situation remains fluid, the COVID-19 trajectory in India continues to improve. Additionally, we still expect license revenue in the second half of 2021. However, we expect a portion of that revenue to be pushed into 2022 due to routine project delays with key clients. That said, we had a solid first half of 2021, our investments in our infrastructure are already showing results, and we are well on our way to achieving top-line growth of 20% to 25% for the year.”

Mr. Strange continued, “In addition to our recently announced partnership with Vervent, we continued to provide constant support for key customers who continue to leverage CoreCard's consistency, agility, and ability to implement new and customized features. The partnerships we entered validate our CoreCard platform and the strategic investments we made in the Company. We remain confident in our strategy and our ability to generate long-term value for our shareholders.”
