Remarking on quarterly performance, Michael D. Hays, chief executive officer of National Research Corporation, said, "Quarter-over-quarter, revenue growth of 23% from acute care products was very strong and accounted for 71% of revenue. On the post-acute side, changes made late last year resulted in new sales that surpassed each of the last six quarters. Given this turnaround, post-acute can return to a positive growth driver of our consolidated financial performance."
Revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, was $24.9 million, compared to $22.4 million for the same quarter in 2012. Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, was $4.5 million, or $0.65 per basic share and $0.64 per diluted share, compared to $3.8 million for the first quarter 2012, or $0.57 per basic share and $0.56 per diluted share.
In closing, Kevin Karas, chief financial officer of National Research Corporation, said, "Our acute care patient experience products (up 24%), as well as Ticker (up 25%), CG-CAHPS (up 36%), Illuminate (up 143%), and our NRC Canada division (up 24%), recorded robust revenue growth in the quarter. In addition, overall net new sales for the quarter grew by 17% over the same quarter last year and contract value ended the quarter at $96.4 million, establishing a very solid start for the year."
