Michael Schrader, CEO of Top Image Systems, commented, “Q2 was another solid quarter, highlighted by a continuation of consistent and predictable revenue performance bolstered by a high percentage of recurring revenue. In terms of expense management, the cost controls that we have implemented have resulted in improvements in our key profit metrics. We expended some cash in the quarter due primarily to restructuring payments, including severance, and in part due to timing of collections. We are encouraged by the positive performance from our identified key growth drivers, and in particular by our Financial Process Automation (FPA) solution – eFLOW AP for SAP – which was released on schedule and has been generating positive feedback, leads and an encouraging sales pipeline. We are further expanding our market coverage for our core capture, mobile and multi-channel content process automation business through our partner ecosystem.”

Mr. Schrader continued, “Looking ahead, the consolidation of our strategic product portfolio driving multichannel enterprise capture and process automation with fully integrated cloud and mobile technologies should strengthen our position in the market. Overall, the quarter’s results demonstrate that we are succeeding in managing operations, selling our core and growth solutions, securing and developing partnerships, and continuously innovating our products to address new markets. These measures, led by our augmented management team, should enable us to better capitalize on our leading technology and maximize shareholder value.”
