“ACI started 2014 strong with results that position us well to achieve our full year expectations,” commented Phil Heasley, President and CEO, ACI Worldwide. “Net new bookings were particularly robust as we are clearly seeing interest in our Universal Payments-enabled solutions.”
Financial Results for Q1
Revenue in Q1 was $221 million, an increase of $59 million, or 37%, above the prior year quarter. The acquisition of Official Payments and incremental revenue from Online Resources contributed $33 million and $29 million, respectively, to the increase in revenue compared to the prior year quarter.
New sales bookings, net of term extensions (SNET) increased 59% compared to the prior year quarter. Our 12-month backlog increased by $13 million from last quarter to $883 million, while our 60-month backlog increased by $49 million from last quarter to $3.91 billion.
Operating income was $0.3 million for the quarter, versus a loss of $4 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA of $32 million grew 46%, or $10 million above last year’s $22 million. Net EBITDA margin in Q1 2014 represented 16% versus 14% margin last year, after adjusting for $28 million and $1 million of pass through interchange in Q1 2014 and Q1 2013, respectively.
Q1 GAAP net loss was $6 million, or ($0.15) per diluted share, versus a net loss of $2 million, or ($0.05) per diluted share in Q1 2013. The variance was primarily driven by increased interest expense and foreign currency fluctuations.
We ended the first quarter with $59 million in cash on hand. Operating free cash flow (OFCF) for the quarter was $15 million, down from $34 million in Q1 of last year. The quarter ended with a debt balance of $779 million. We repurchased 1.2 million shares of our stock in the quarter for approximately $70 million and have approximately $138 million remaining on our current authorization.
We continue to expect to generate non-GAAP revenue in a range of $1.06 to $1.08 billion for the full year and now forecast non-GAAP revenue of $240 to $250 million in the second quarter. Adjusted EBITDA expectations remain in a range of $290 to $300 million. This guidance excludes $13 to $15 million of one-time integration-related expenses and includes $2 million for the deferred revenue adjustments. Lastly, our full year 2014 net new sales bookings growth is expected to be in the upper single digit range.
