"We have achieved record quarterly bookings driven by healthcare base accounts which grew 196% YoY," said Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS Inc. "We are off to a good start with our recent acquisition, OrderDynamics. The OrderDynamics platform processed $40M worth of orders during black Friday week, an impressive 144% increase over last year. Our pipeline remains strong and we will focus on capitalizing on our strong market position by growing our sales team and investing in marketing as we look to the second half of the year."

"The comparison of FY19 Q2 Operating Profit and EBITDA to prior year results is challenging given the impact of (a) $1.0 million of deferred professional services revenue recognized in FY18 Q2 resulting from the contract termination in that prior period and (b) costs related to the acquisition of OrderDynamics and stock-based compensation expenses of $0.2 million recognized in the current period. That said, we are pleased with FY19 Q2 profitability and will continue to invest in sales and marketing and research and development to take advantage of market opportunity" said Mark J. Bentler, Chief Financial Officer.
