Provision for income taxes increased slightly for the quarter, although the effective rate decreased to 31.9% of income before income taxes from 36.1% for the three months ending September 30, 2015. The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily due to the adoption of ASU 2016-09 during the quarter, as well as the recognition of a tax benefit from the federal Research and Experimentation Credit ("R&E Credit"), which was not available during the first quarter of fiscal 2016.

Excluding deconversion fees, net income increased 14% in the first quarter fiscal 2017 compared to the same quarter a year ago.

The adoption of ASU 2016-09 resulted in an increase in diluted earnings per share of $0.03 for the current quarter.

According to Kevin Williams, CFO, "Adjusting for the net increase in deconversion fees compared to last year, our total revenue growth for the quarter was a little ahead of our previous guidance. Also, if you consider this plus the grow over of Alogent, which the increase in deconversion fees essentially offset, our revenue growth would have been right in line with prior years revenue growth at roughly 8%. We still have three more quarters of Alogent revenue to grow over (Q’2 $8,251, Q’3 $7,657 and Q’4 $6,089), as well as one more quarter to grow over the large payments customer we lost last year in our second fiscal quarter."
