Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS Inc., commented on the results: "Five new accounts and a significant improvement in services margins were the key elements of Q1. After several quarters of heavy investment in services infrastructure, we saw services revenue begin to respond, up 6% in the quarter compared to Q1 of last year with margin increasing from 28% to 33%. On the license front, Q1 was a more typical first quarter for us as opposed to last year’s unusual Q1 making comparisons difficult. We are excited about the new cutting-edge supply chain product we have announced for the Hospital Operating Room. This product is now released and the level of interest from the market looks promising. The combination of our strong backlog, larger services team and a sales pipeline that looks solid put us in a good position moving forward. We continue to provide good returns to shareholders with another $0.035/share dividend approved by our Board of Directors."
