Provision for income taxes increased in the second quarter, with an effective tax rate at 33.5% of income before income taxes, compared to 29.9% for the same quarter of the prior year. The second quarter rate for fiscal 2016 was lowered by the recognition of a tax benefit from the retroactive extension of the federal Research and Experimentation Credit ("R&E Credit").

For the year-to-date period, the effective tax rate decreased to 32.7% of income before income taxes from 32.9% for the six months ending December 31, 2015.

The adoption of ASU 2016-09 (Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting) resulted in an increase in diluted earnings per share of $0.03 for the six months ended December 31, 2016.

According to Kevin Williams, CFO, "Adjusting for the net decrease in deconversion fees in the quarter compared to last year, plus the impact of Alogent, our revenue growth would have been slightly above 8%. Also, adjusting for both of these our operating income would have increased 10% and adjusting for the significant change in the effective tax rate our net income would have also grown 10% for the quarter compared to last year. We still have two more quarters of Alogent revenue to grow over (Q’3 $7,657 and Q’4 $6,089)."
