SAN JOSE, CA – July 30, 2013 – FICO (NYSE:FICO), a leading predictive analytics and decision management software company, today announced financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013.
Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 GAAP Results
Net income for the quarter totaled $19.6 million, or $0.54 per share, versus $20.7 million, or $0.59 per share, reported in the prior year period. The current quarter earnings include a noncash tax charge of $2.5 million, or $0.07 per share, associated with establishing a valuation allowance related to a deferred tax asset. This valuation allowance was required due to recent tax law changes in a state in which the company conducts operations.

Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $29.3 million vs. $25.8 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP EPS for the quarter was $0.80 vs. $0.73 in the prior year period. Free cash flow for the quarter was $27.2 million vs. $16.0 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.
Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 GAAP Revenue
The company reported revenues of $183.8 million for the quarter as compared to $160.5 million reported in the prior year period, an increase of 15%.
“We saw continued strength in our Scores and Tools segments this quarter, fortifying the confidence we have in our overall strategic direction,” said Will Lansing, chief executive officer. “Recurring revenues from our Applications segment were strong again this quarter, though we did experience some disappointing delays in applications license sales to North American banks. All in all, we remain confident about our prospects, and focused on executing against our plan.”
Revenues for the third quarter fiscal 2013 across each of the company’s three operating segments were as follows:
