Integral Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISYS) (“Company”) today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2009.

Revenue for the quarter was $42.8 million, up 13.4% over 2008. Gross margin for the quarter was 38.2% compared to 28.8% for the same period last year. Second quarter 2009 income from operations was $4.2 million compared to $4.4 million recorded in the second quarter of the last fiscal year. The decline in operating income reflects higher selling, general, and administrative (SG&A) costs. Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2009 was $0.15 compared to $0.16 per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2008.

Year-to-date revenue was $81.2 million, up 13.4% over 2008. Gross margin for the first two quarters of 2009 was 36.6% compared to 32.7% for the same period last year. Year-to-date operating income declined $4.2 million over 2008 due to higher SG&A expenses. Year-to-date 2009 earnings per share was $0.21 compared to $0.43 per share in 2008.

The higher SG&A costs that the Company has experienced this year are the result of conscious efforts to solidify the Company’s infrastructure, build a robust business development function, and ensure compliance in all material respects in the Company’s financial, information systems, security, and quality control operations.

We are diligently managing the Company’s cost structure to minimize discretionary expenditures and drive efficiency across the organization.”
