Cover-All Technologies Inc. Expands into the Business Intelligence Marketplace with the Acquisition of Moore Stephens Business Solutions

FAIRFIELD, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cover-All Technologies Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: COVR.OBNews), a Delaware corporation (“Cover-All” or the “Company”), today announced the acquisition of Moore Stephens Business Solutions LLC (MSBS), a provider of business intelligence and advanced analytics solutions to the insurance industry based in New York, New York.

Acquisition Highlights:

  • Cover-All, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Cover-All Systems, Inc., has acquired substantially all of MSBS’s assets (excluding working capital) for an aggregate purchase price of $2,450,000, with no assumed indebtedness.
  • Approximately 96% of the purchase price consists of cash and a promissory note, and the remaining approximately 4% consists of Cover-All’s common stock.
  • The acquired business is expected to be immediately accretive to Cover-All’s 2010 earnings with an operating margin comparable with Cover-All’s historic operating margin.
  • On a trailing 12 months basis, MSBS generated over $6 million in revenue.
  • The combined organization will total more than 55 customers, all of which are part of the same target market.
  • Seth Rachlin, currently CEO of MSBS, will join Cover-All’s management as an executive vice president and serve as Managing Director of Cover-All’s new Business Intelligence unit. The unit, including the outstanding staff of MSBS, will continue to be based in their New York City office.

MSBS serves the insurance industry exclusively, providing Business Intelligence and advanced analytics solutions. Leveraging their Insurance Analytic Framework (IAF), which delivers accurate, available and actionable key metrics and dimensions specific to the insurance industry, MSBS has established a dominant presence in an otherwise underserved market. With the integration of these capabilities into the Cover-All portfolio, the combined company will be well positioned to deliver additional value to the existing customers of both companies, as well as benefit from an unrivaled and unique competitive advantage in its combined offerings.

While delivering three consecutive years of record revenues and profits, Cover-All has also been focused on building an innovative insurance information platform (My Insurance Center) utilizing leading-edge technologies and an information-centric architecture. These capabilities combined with exciting new offerings to My Insurance Center expected to be completed in late 2010, have positioned the Company for continued strong growth and profitability.

The acquisition of MSBS represents an additional pillar of the Company’s broader growth strategy as it looks to expand its customer base by offering additional leading-edge capabilities. Cover-All’s strategy includes continued focus on identifying immediately accretive opportunities that fit within its strategic vision.

“Thanks to our innovative strategy, customer focus, and talented results-oriented staff, I believe Cover-All has reached the point where we are ready for break-out growth, and this acquisition is evidence of that fact,” commented John Roblin, Chairman and CEO of Cover-All. “With our strong balance sheet and cash position, we are now able to shift our focus from stabilization to cultivation, and execute on the second part of our carefully planned growth strategy – a strategy which includes immediately accretive acquisitions which in turn, serve to fuel our organic growth and expanded offerings.”

“This acquisition presents an excellent opportunity for MSBS to move to the next level as we join the Cover-All family,” said Seth Rachlin, CEO of MSBS. “Building on our hard work over the past four years, we will now have additional resources to expand capabilities and our footprint.”

The acquisition creates a new opportunity for existing, as well as potential customers of both companies to leverage the power of an integrated solution that merges highly-focused Insurance Business Analytics with My Insurance Center, Cover-All’s revolutionary Policy Life-Cycle Management solution set. Additionally, the combined entity will look to leverage Cover-All’s proven business model of generating recurring revenue with a flexible cost structure, to drive further improvements to MSBS’s margins.

Cover-All continues to expand its reputation as a leader in developing innovative solutions for the insurance industry by focusing on the value of information. Following a philosophy of information-centric technology, Cover-All’s My Insurance Center has been built around the notion of leveraging the availability of data to drive business value. Similarly, MSBS has established an equally dominant position in their niche, focusing on a likeminded philosophy, developing the tools and know-how to assimilate data into powerful Business Intelligence. Further, both Cover-All and MSBS have established meaningful relationships within a similar market segment (but without any overlap) which will give rise to tremendous cross-selling opportunities.

Cover-All was advised by LMC Capital LLC, a boutique investment banking firm dedicated exclusively to the insurance industry.

Management will conduct a live teleconference to discuss this acquisition at 4:30 p.m. EDT on April 12, 2010.

WASHINGTON, March 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — WidePoint Corporation (NYSE Amex: WYY), a specialist in wireless mobility management and cybersecurity solutions, today announced financial results for the three months and full year ending December 31, 2009.

  • The Company generated approximately $5.1 million in operating cash flow for the year and finished the year with $6.2 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2009.

Fourth Quarter 2009 Highlights

  • Net revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 increased 12.5% to $11.4 million from $10.2 million in last year’s comparable period.
  • Growth was driven by a 30% year-over-year increase in Wireless Mobility Management segment revenue and a 50% increase in Cybersecurity Solutions revenues.

Subsequent to Year End 2009

Government Solutions Division, which focuses on security solutions for locating, credentialing, and managing critical personnel and “first responders” in emergency management situations.

Steve Komar, CEO, WidePoint commented, “This was a solid conclusion to an outstanding year, as we grew revenue both sequentially and year-over-year for every quarter this year, and expanded our gross profit and operating income steadily throughout the year. We also generated $5.1 million in operating cash flow to strengthen our balance sheet. Our Wireless Mobility Management segment continues to gain traction within the federal government, and we are increasing our presence in state and local government entities as well, due to our proven ability to manage mobile phone assets to optimize environments while substantially reducing expenses. In addition, our Cybersecurity Solutions segment, due in large part to our PKI-based Credentialing expertise, has grown significantly in the last year, expanding 50% compared to last year. Our progress during the last 12 months provides us with a growing degree of confidence that 2010 will represent another record year for WidePoint and its shareholders.”

Full-Year 2009 Results

Net revenue for the full year ended December 31, 2009 increased $7.8 million to $43.3 million, up 22.2%, compared to $35.5 million for last year’s comparable period. For the full year, gross profit increased 44.3% to $9.5 million, representing 21.9% gross margin; as compared to gross profit of $6.6 million, equating to an 18.6% gross margin realized last year.

Total operating expenses were $7.8 million, or 18.0% of revenue, for the full year ended December 31, 2009 compared to $7.3 million, or 20.6% of revenue, for the comparable period last year. WidePoint’s operating income was approximately $1.7 million compared to an operating loss of ($0.7) million in the same period last year. Net income was approximately $1.4 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, compared to a loss of ($1.1) million, or ($0.02) loss per basic and diluted share, in the year ago period.

The Company generated approximately $5.1 million in operating cash flow for the year ended December 31, 2009, and it had $6.2 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2009 compared to $4.4 million in cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2008. Shareholders’ equity increased to $14.8 million at December 31, 2009, compared to $12.7 million at December 31, 2008.

Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Net revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2009 increased $1.2 million, or 12.5%, to $11.4 million from $10.2 million in last year’s comparable period. This was primarily due to annual growth in the Wireless Mobility Management and Cybersecurity Solutions segments, which increased 30% and 50%, respectively.

Gross profit for the Quarter increased 9.1% to $2.6 million, representing 22.5% gross margin, compared to $2.4 million (23.2% gross margin) last year. Total operating expenses increased 6.7% to $2.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 compared to $1.9 million for the year-ago period. However, operating expenses as a percentage of sales declined 90 basis points to 17.5% from 18.4% in the year-ago period. WidePoint reported operating income of approximately $580,000 in the fourth quarter, up approximately 18.4% from approximately $490,000 in the fourth quarter last year.

Net income was approximately $515,000, compared to net income of approximately $285,000, in the year-ago period.

WidePoint CFO Jim McCubbin added, “During the Quarter ended, we reported solid gains in the quarter with improved revenue and gross margin momentum. We grew revenue by 12.5%, primarily in our Wireless Mobility and Cybersecurity Solutions segments as we expanded our marketing efforts and as various federal government agencies continue to sponsor and expand their programs. Gross profit, for the quarter, increased by 9.1% year over year primarily related to a greater mix of higher margin services offered by these same two segments. This led to improved operating and net margins despite the higher cost of revenue, and continues to demonstrate the leverage in our operating model. Lower-margin Consulting Services declined approximately 3% to $10.4 million from $10.7 million primarily due to a reduction in software reselling activities.”

Mr. Komar continued, “Subsequent to our Quarter and Year end, we acquired VUANCE, Inc’s. Government Solutions Division software and services solution. We are currently re-positioning this WidePoint new market solution to be co-marketed with our existing PKI Credentialing service, and believe this acquisition significantly enhances our leadership position in the area of First Responder Authentication Credentialing. It also improves our ability to meet the accelerating demands from the Department of Homeland Security, as well as broadens our penetration of state and local first responder markets across the country.”

Mr. McCubbin concluded, “WidePoint made significant strides in expanding our profitability this year and we expect to continue that trajectory in 2010.  For 2010, management expects to:

  • Increase consolidated revenues by 20-30%
  • Expand gross margins and operating margins. Management has targeted gross margins in the range of 22-26% and operating margins in the range of 6-8%
  • Maintain or decrease selling, general and administrative costs as a percent of total revenue
  • Accelerate the growth rate of net income.”

Mr. Komar concluded, “We have already identified or are bidding on the projects necessary to achieve our 2010 goals, and we believe additional upside exists which could potentially allow us to exceed these aggressive targets.”

Mr. George McQuain, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “This was a year of tremendous progress, as we position the Company for continued revenue and net income growth in 2010. During 2009, we increased our gross margin and operating income, and reported a new record net income for the year, demonstrating our ability to expand the Company’s profitability. We believe our focus on higher volume locations and managing our expenses, particularly our interest expense, has positioned us for additional acceleration of net income in 2010.”

Fourth Quarter 2009 Financial Results

The Company reported revenues from continuing operations of $5.4 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2009, compared to $5.1 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2008. This 4.9% increase was mainly due to increased focus on higher volume locations. Gross profit from continuing operations was $2.5 million, or 47.0% gross margin, for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2009, compared to $2.4 million, or 46.2% gross margin, for the same period of 2008.

The recognition of deferred tax assets added $1.3 million of net income to the pre-tax operating profit of $404,481 and $1.5 million for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, respectively. Deferred tax assets represent future potential tax deductions, which are a result of timing differences between tax laws and generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). In order to recognize a deferred tax asset, GAAP requires evidence of sufficient future taxable income. Accounting practice typically views a history of profitability of eight to 12 consecutive quarters as sufficient evidence. In addition, a loss on the extinguishment of debt of $7,569 was recognized in the fourth quarter.

Operating income from continuing operations, excluding the recognition of a deferred tax asset and the loss on the extinguishment of debt, was $548,019 for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2009, compared to $571,102 for the same period of 2008. During the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company recorded net interest expense of $135,969, compared to net interest expense of $264,006 for the same period of 2008. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in debt and refinancing outstanding debt at a lower interest rate. EBITDA (earnings before net interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $1.1 million, compared to $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2008. Adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA before stock compensation expenses and loss on early extinguishment of debt) was $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2009 from $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2008. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA represent non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) financial measures. A table reconciling these measures to the appropriate GAAP measures is included in this release.

Inclusive of the recognition of deferred tax assets, net income for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2009 was $1.7 million, or $0.08 and $0.07 per basic and diluted share, respectively (based on 21.9 and 23.6 million basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding, respectively), which compares to net income of $330,968, or $0.02 per share (based on 21.0 million basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding, respectively), for the same period of 2008. The tax benefit represented $0.06 in earnings per share and, excluding the tax benefit, net income would have been $404,481.

Mr. McQuain added, “We continued to strengthen our operating metrics and increased net income for the quarter by 22%, compared to the same period of 2008, excluding the income tax benefit, on a revenue increase of 4.9%. Also key to increasing profitability was the refinancing of our debt which resulted in a 48% reduction in interest expense compared to the fourth quarter last year. As a result of our ongoing efforts to minimize expenses and focus on higher margin opportunities, we have achieved 13 continuous quarters of net income. During the fourth quarter of 2009, we continued to expand our ATM customer base, providing a larger base of predictable revenue as we move into 2010. We believe this positions us to deliver consistent profitability and allows us to move aggressively into the DVD kiosk marketplace, where revenue, gross margin and growth opportunities are substantially higher. As part of this move, we reached an agreement with self-service kiosk industry consultant Michelle Macpherson to help us define and implement our strategy to drive our national DVD kiosk expansion.”

Mr. McQuain continued, “We are firmly focused on leveraging our expertise in the self-service kiosk segment to capture market share in the emerging DVD kiosk marketplace. We have established InstaFlix, a Nationwide Ntertainment Services Inc. business line and a subsidiary of the Company, to solidify our growing presence. To date, we have deployed 24 DVD kiosk locations. We will have another 10 of our InstaFlix-branded DVD kiosk locations installed by mid-March of 2010 and expect to have another 18 kiosks delivered and installed during April and May of 2010. This schedule is consistent with our expectation of rolling out between five and 10 per month through the first half of 2010, and accelerating to 15 to 20 in the second half of the year. Along with this deployment schedule, we will also be opportunistic and aggressive in going after larger deals in the DVD kiosk marketplace should they present themselves. Our growing presence in this marketplace is being applauded and embraced by retailers and other potential partners that are eager to participate in the rapidly expanding self-service, on-demand model, but have been frustrated by current service options. They recognize that our reputation for superior operational excellence, industry leading customer service, and up-time and on-time residual payments will help them generate additional traffic and revenues in their retail locations with a DVD self-service kiosk opportunity.”

Fiscal Year 2009 Financial Results

For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, total revenue was $21.5 million, a decrease of 3.0%, compared to $22.2 million for the same period of 2008. Gross profit for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 was $10.2 million, reflecting a gross margin of 47.4%, compared to gross profit of $9.8 million, or a gross margin of 44.3%, for the comparable 2008 period. Operating income from continuing operations for the year was $2.7 million, compared to $2.2 million for the same period of 2008. Net income for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 was $2.8 million, or $0.13 and $0.12 per basic and diluted share (based on 21.7 and 22.8 million basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding, respectively), compared to net income for the same period of 2008 of $1.2 million, or $0.06 per share (based on 21.0 million basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding). Excluding a $1.3 million income tax benefit, net income would have been $1.5 million for the fiscal year. EBITDA decreased to $4.1 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 from $4.4 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008. Adjusted EBITDA increased to $4.7 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 from $4.6 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008.

Mr. McQuain continued, “We increased the profitability during 2009 and positioned the Company for further acceleration of net income in 2010. During 2009, the Company generated $4.4 million in net cash by continuing operating activities, an increase of 49.2% compared to 2008. We also generated adjusted EBITDA of $4.7 million and $1.5 million of net income. We completed 2009 with more than $2 million in cash and reduced our working capital requirements for 2010 by refinancing outstanding debt at a lower interest rate, without any pre-payment penalty. As a result, we expect approximately $40,000 in 2010 interest savings due to the lower interest rate of the loan. We have significantly reduced our working capital requirements and improved our resources, positioning the Company for continued revenue growth and expanded profitability in 2010.”

Balance Sheet and Cash Flows

Net cash provided by continuing operating activities during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 was $4.4 million, compared to net cash provided by continuing operating activities of $3.0 million during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008, representing a 49.2% increase. Shareholders’ equity increased 23.0% to $16.6 million from $13.5 million at December 31, 2008.

Michael J. Loiacono, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, stated, “We continued to expand our profitability and significantly increased our cash flow from continuing operations for 2009. As a result of our profitability, we believed the timing was right to recognize deferred tax assets, which is reflected in our fourth quarter and fiscal year results. As we completed our analysis of deferred tax assets in connection with filing of the Company’s Form 10-K for 2009, we realized we met the standards for recognition of these assets in the fourth quarter of 2009. GAAP requires evidence of sufficient future profitability, taxable income, to realize the benefit of the deferred tax asset. We delayed recognition of this tax benefit for as long as was appropriate.”

Outlook:

“Assuming similar transaction levels in 2010 compared to 2009, and based on what we believe to be is a stable base of predictable revenue, we are targeting 5% to 10% organic growth from our ATM business,” Mr. McQuain concluded. “Our DVD kiosk business will provide upside to this guidance, and we expect this new and emerging segment to add 5% to 10% in incremental revenue for calendar 2010. As we continue to carefully manage our expenses and focus on higher volume locations and higher margin opportunities, we anticipate accelerating our profitability in 2010 compared to 2009.”

FAIRFIELD, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cover-All Technologies Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: COVR.OBNews), a Delaware corporation (“Cover-All” or the “Company”), today announced record financial results for the full year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2009.

Operational Highlights:

  • Full-year 2009 revenue was $14.5 million compared to $13.5 million for the year 2008, an increase of 7.8%. Fourth quarter 2009 revenue increased 94.7%, to $6.2 million, compared to $3.2 million for the same period in 2008.
  • Continuing revenue (maintenance and ASP revenue from contracts) for the full year 2009 was $7.1 million, up 14.7% from $6.2 million in the same period in 2008. Continuing revenue for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $1.8 million, up 11.7% compared to $1.6 million in last year.
  • Net operating margin increased to 23% in 2009, up from 21% in 2008, as total expenses for 2009 increased only 5.7%, to $11.2 million, compared to $10.6 million for 2008.
  • Operating income was $3.3 million, up 15.5% compared to $2.8 million last year, as operating income grew approximately twice as fast as total revenue, demonstrating the leverage in the Company’s business model.
  • The Company’s balance sheet remains strong with stockholders’ equity at a record $11.5 million as of December 31, 2009. The Company completed the fourth quarter of 2009 with $4.3 million in cash, $7.2 million in working capital and no debt.
  • During the fourth quarter, Cover-All signed three significant customer agreements. Some of the products and services were delivered and revenue was recognized in the fourth quarter of 2009. Additional professional services, license and maintenance revenues will be recognized as additional products and services are delivered in 2010 and early 2011.

John Roblin, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “In a challenging economy, Cover-All produced its third consecutive record year. I’m particularly pleased with our ability to grow our operating income at approximately twice the pace of our revenue growth. As announced on January 13, 2010, Cover-All’s fourth quarter was the strongest quarter in our Company’s history and this represents the culmination of another successful year. During the quarter we announced three new contracts, the most ever in one quarter, which validates our expanded sales and marketing efforts. We are also expanding our My Insurance Center offering with exciting new capabilities that make us even more competitive in the marketplace as we focus on trying to achieve yet another record year for 2010.”

Full Year Financial Results

Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2009 were a record $14.5 million, compared to $13.5 million in 2008, an increase of 7.8%. License revenue in 2009 was $4.1 million, compared to $3.8 million in 2008. In aggregate, maintenance and ASP revenue, which together represent continuing revenue, was $7.1 million for 2009, up 14.7% from $6.2 million in 2008. Professional services revenue for 2009 was $3.3 million, down 5.6% compared to $3.5 million in 2008.

Total expenses (cost of revenue and operating expenses) for the full year 2009 were $11.2 million, up 5.7% from $10.6 million in 2008.

The Company recorded an income tax benefit of $1.6 million in 2009, offset by the recognition of $840,000 for the portion of its tax valuation allowance, for a net benefit of $787,500. The income tax benefit represented approximately $0.03 in earnings per share for both the 2009 fourth quarter and full-year period. The Company does not expect to have to make significant cash payments for Federal income taxes until all net operating loss carryforwards are utilized. As of December 31, 2009, the balance of Federal net operating loss carryforwards was $16 million.

Net income, including the $787,500 tax benefit, for the year ended December 31, 2009 was $3.9 million, or $0.16 per share (based on 25.1 million weighted average diluted shares). This compared to $4.6 million, or $0.19 per share (based on 24.2 million weighted average diluted shares), for 2008, which included a $1.7 million, or $0.07 per share, tax benefit.

Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Total revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2009 were a record $6.2 million, compared to $3.2 million for the same period in 2008, an increase of 94.7%. License revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2009 was $3.7 million, compared to $282,000 for the same period in 2008. In aggregate, maintenance and ASP revenue, which together represent continuing revenue, was $1.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, up 11.7% from $1.6 million in the same period in 2008. Professional services revenue for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $696,000, down 44.7% compared to $1.3 million for the same period in 2008.

Total expenses (cost of revenue and operating expenses) for the three months ended December 31, 2009 increased 23.0% to $3.5 million from $2.9 million. Inclusive of the $787,000 or $0.03 per share tax benefit, net income for the three months ended December 31, 2009 was a record $3.3 million, or $0.13 per share, compared to $2.0 million, or $0.08 per share, in the same quarter of 2008. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2008 included a tax benefit of $1.7 million, or $0.07 per share.

“We had a strong finish to 2009, due in no small part to the revolutionary capabilities of My Insurance Center and our reputation for delivering on our promises,” commented Mr. Roblin. “These contracts are multiyear agreements that are by their nature complex. We cannot predict precise timing of new revenues given both the complexity of the contract process and the strict rules regarding revenue recognition.”

Balance Sheet

Stockholders’ equity was $11.5 million as of December 31, 2009 compared to $7.8 million as of December 31, 2008. Total assets increased to $15.0 million as of December 31, 2009 compared to $11.0 million as of December 31, 2008. As of December 31, 2009, the Company had $4.3 million in cash, $7.2 million in working capital and no debt.

“We are proud to report our third consecutive record year and our 12th consecutive profitable quarter. The company is stronger than ever before and our opportunities to grow and expand have considerably increased. Moreover, we continue to grow our continuing, or recurring, revenue base setting the stage for increasing profitability. We have proven our business model and our ability to deliver consistent and record results. We expect 2010 to be a very exciting year as we expand our My Insurance Center offering with innovative new capabilities that will be attractive both to new as well as to our existing customers, making us even more competitive in the marketplace. We are also actively focused on additional strategic opportunities for growth.” concluded Mr. Roblin.

Apple iPad Review

Apple never ceases to amaze me. First, they took over the mobile industry by storm. Then the Mp3 market.. and now Apple releases the Apple iPad.

Here is a quick video review of the Apple iPad. Sorry Kindle I know you just came out but I predict the Kindle will be a thing of the past before it even became a thing of the present.

Google co-founders Sergey Brin, Larry Page plan big stock sale

GoogleGoogle’s two co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, are going to cash out a large block of their company stock.

Google said Friday that Brin and Page each plan to gradually sell about 5 million shares of stock, “as part of their respective long-term strategies for individual asset diversification and liquidity,” according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

With that sort of liquidity, Page and Brin certainly won’t have any trouble paying the light bill. Even with Google stock dropping almost $33 a share Friday to $550.01, following a strong fourth-quarter earnings report that apparently wasn’t quite as sterling as investors wanted to see, 5 million shares would be worth about $2.75 billion to each Google founder.
