“Fiscal 2022 is off to a very positive start. Our tenth consecutive quarter of record revenue demonstrates our sustained growth trajectory and is composed of a healthy blend of new customers and expanded investments from our existing accounts,” said Peter Brereton, president and CEO of Tecsys, Inc. “SaaS bookings demonstrated some lumpiness being down after a very strong Q4. We saw legal and procurement bottlenecks as the primary factor here. That said, we added two new hospital networks in Q1 and have already added another in August. Our strong performance is being led by our truly adaptable agile solutions, which are resonating extremely well in a climate more attuned to the importance of supply chain execution excellence. As we continue to set records for the company on a quarterly sequential basis, we expect our very strong pipeline to yield accelerated growth and sustained upside.”

Mark Bentler, chief financial officer of Tecsys Inc., added, “In spite of significant foreign currency headwinds, we are pleased to report another solid quarter of revenue growth and profitability. In fact, on a constant currency basis our first quarter fiscal 2022 revenue grew by about 25% compared to the same period last year, with SaaS revenue once again being a key driver.”

On September 9, 2021, the Company declared a quarterly dividend of $0.065 per share payable on October 8, 2021 to shareholders of record at the close of business on September 24, 2021.

Pursuant to the Canadian Income Tax Act, dividends paid by the Company to Canadian residents are considered to be “eligible” dividends.
