The company reported revenues of $344.9 million for the quarter as compared to $322.4 million reported in the prior year period.

“We had a strong start to our Fiscal 2023,” said Will Lansing, chief executive officer. “We continue to deliver earnings growth, and are pleased with the progress we are making on our strategic initiatives.”

Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 for the company’s two operating segments were as follows:

  • Software revenues, which include the company’s analytics and digital decisioning technology, as well as associated professional services, were $166.9 million in the first quarter, compared to $152.9 million in the prior year period, an increase of 9%, due to increased recurring revenue, partially offset by a decrease in professional services. Software Annual Recurring Revenue was up 11% year-over-year, consisting of 46% platform ARR growth and 4% non-platform growth. Software Dollar-Based Net Retention Rate was 110% in the first quarter, with platform software at 130% and non-platform software at 103%.
  • Scores revenues, which include the company’s business-to-business (B2B) scoring solutions, and business-to-consumer (B2C) scoring solutions, were $178.0 million in the first quarter, compared to $169.5 million in the prior year period, an increase of 5%. B2B revenue increased 11%, driven largely by a multi-year license renewal as well as increases in unit prices and in card and personal loan originations volumes, partially offset by declines in mortgage originations volumes. B2C revenue decreased 6% from the prior year period due to lower volumes at myFICO.com.

The company is reiterating the following guidance for fiscal 2023:

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, to the extent applicable, such items as 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. 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.
