May 19, 2024

Revenue of $434 million vs. $380 million in prior year

BOZEMAN, Mont.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FICO (NYSE:FICO), a leading predictive analytics and decision management software company, today announced results for its second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2024.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2024 GAAP Results

Net income for the quarter totaled $129.8 million, or $5.16 per share, versus $101.6 million, or $4.00 per share, in the prior year period.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the quarter was $71.0 million versus $89.8 million in the prior year period.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2024 Non-GAAP Results

Non-GAAP Net Income for the quarter was $154.5 million versus $121.4 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP EPS for the quarter was $6.14 versus $4.78 in the prior year period. Free cash flow was $61.6 million for the current quarter versus $88.3 million in the prior year period. The Non-GAAP financial measures are described in the financial table captioned “Non-GAAP Results” and are reconciled to the corresponding GAAP results in the financial tables at the end of this release.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2024 GAAP Revenue

The company reported revenues of $433.8 million for the quarter as compared to $380.3 million reported in the prior year period.

“We delivered a strong second quarter, posting double-digit growth across all our guided metrics,” said Will Lansing, chief executive officer. “We are pleased to announce that we are raising our full year guidance.”

Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2024 for the company’s two operating segments were as follows:

  • Scores revenues, which include the company’s business-to-business (B2B) scoring solutions, and business-to-consumer (B2C) solutions, were $236.9 million in the second quarter, compared to $198.5 million in the prior year period, an increase of 19%. B2B revenue increased 28%, driven largely by higher unit prices, which were partially offset by a decrease in mortgage origination volumes. B2C revenue decreased 4% from the prior year period due to lower volumes on myFICO.com business.
  • Software revenues, which include the company’s analytics and digital decisioning technology, were $196.9 million in the second quarter, compared to $181.8 million in the prior year period, an increase of 8%, due to increased recurring revenue, partially offset by a decrease in professional services. Software Annual Recurring Revenue was up 14% year-over-year, consisting of 32% platform ARR growth and 8% non-platform growth. Software Dollar-Based Net Retention Rate was 112% at March 31, 2024, with platform software at 126% and non-platform software at 106%.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated GAAP financial statements, the company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP EPS, and free cash flow. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS exclude, to the extent applicable, such items as the impact of amortization expense, share-based compensation expense, restructuring and acquisition-related, excess tax benefit, and adjustment to tax valuation allowance items. Free cash flow excludes capital expenditures. The presentation of these financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. Our management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance and liquidity by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of recurring business results including significant non-cash expenses. We believe management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management’s internal comparisons to historical performance and liquidity as well as comparisons to our competitors’ operating results. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency with respect to key measures used by management in its financial and operating decision-making.
