CoreCard Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2023 Results

NORCROSS, Ga., Aug. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoreCard Corporation (NYSE: CCRD) (“CoreCard” or the “Company”), 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, 2023.

"CoreCard’s strong performance continued in the second quarter and resulted in total revenue of $15.7 million in-line with our expectations,” said Leland Strange, CEO of CoreCard Corporation. "Our top-line growth in services revenue was driven by 26% growth in processing and maintenance revenue, partially offset by declines in professional services and third party revenues. As a reminder, third party revenues are very low margin. Additionally, we achieved a new license tier which resulted in $1.8 million of license revenue in the second quarter. We continue to invest in our platform and processing capabilities, which are showing encouraging results. CoreCard provides a best-in-class credit platform that is extremely well positioned to capture the growing demand for next-generation card management platforms by large and complex modern card issuers."

Mr. Strange continued, "We recently converted a portion of our professional services revenue from variable to recurring, which is beneficial from a visibility perspective but will result in lower services revenue for the remainder of the year. We now expect services revenue growth of approximately 5% and continue to expect total license revenue in the range of $3 million to $7 million. The opportunity ahead of us is significant, and CoreCard remains a growth business focused on meeting the evolving needs of modern issuers while generating long-term value for our shareholders."
