FICO Announces Earnings of $3.09 per Share for First Quarter Fiscal 2022 – PRNewswire


BOZEMAN, Mont., Jan. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — FICO (NYSE:FICO), a leading predictive analytics and decision management software company, today announced results for its first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2021.

First Quarter Fiscal 2022 GAAP Results

Net income for the quarter totaled $85.0 million, or $3.09 per share, versus $86.5 million, or $2.90 per share, in the prior year period.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the quarter was $124.9 million versus $77.9 million in the prior year period.

First Quarter Fiscal 2022 Non-GAAP Results

Non-GAAP Net Income for the quarter was $101.9 million versus $81.6 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP EPS for the quarter was $3.70 versus $2.74 in the prior year period. Free cash flow was $124.0 million for the current quarter versus $74.9 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.

First Quarter Fiscal 2022 GAAP Revenue

The company reported revenues of $322.4 million for the quarter as compared to $312.4 million reported in the prior year period.

“We’re off to a good start in fiscal 2022, delivering 10% Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) growth in our Software segment,” said Will Lansing, chief executive officer. “Our Scores segment continues to perform very well, delivering strong growth in both our B2B and B2C markets.”

Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 across the company’s two operating segments were as follows:

  • Software revenues, which include the company’s analytics and digital decisioning technology, were $152.9 million in the first quarter, compared to $167.8 million in the prior year period, a decrease of 9%, primarily due to the sale of the Debt Collections and Recovery product line in June 2021 and reductions in professional services, partially offset by growth in platform software revenue. Year-over-year, Software Annual Recurring Revenue was up 10%, consisting of 67% platform ARR growth and 3% non-platform ARR growth. Software Dollar-Based Net Retention Rate was 109% year-over-year, with platform solutions at 143% and non-platform solutions at 102%.
  • Scores revenues, which include the company’s business-to-business (B2B) scoring solutions, and business-to-consumer (B2C) scoring solutions, were $169.5 million in the first quarter, compared to $144.7 million in the prior year period, an increase of 17%. B2B revenue increased 13%, driven largely by unit price increases. B2C revenue increased 27% from the prior year period due to higher volumes at myFICO.com, as well as through our partners.

The company is reiterating its previously provided guidance for fiscal 2022:

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures








To supplement the consolidated GAAP financial statements, the company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP EPS, and  

free cash flow. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS exclude the impact of amortization expense, share-based compensation expense, restructuring and acquisition-related,

excess tax benefit, and adjustment to tax valuation allowance items. Free cash flow excludes capital expenditures and dividends paid.  The presentation of these financial measures

is not intended to be considered  in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. 





Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons.  Our 

management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance and liquidity by excluding certain items

that may not be indicative of recurring business results including significant non-cash expenses.  We believe management and investors benefit from referring to these 

non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods.  These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate 

management’s internal comparisons to historical performance and liquidity as well as comparisons to our competitors’ operating results.  We believe these non-GAAP financial 

measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency with respect to key measures used by management in its financial and operating decision-making.
