Total revenues for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2014, were $46.3 million, compared with total revenues of $51.3 million for the prior-year fourth quarter. Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2014, was $6.7 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, compared with $10.0 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. Cash provided by operations for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $12.9 million, compared with $14.7 million for the prior-year fourth quarter. Cash collections for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2014, were $53.2 million, compared with cash collections of $56.2 million for the prior-year fourth quarter.

Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2014, were $204.7 million, compared with total revenues of $200.9 million for the prior year. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2014, was $32.9 million, or $2.94 per diluted share, compared with $32.7 million, or $2.95 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2013.

CPSI’s 12-month backlog as of December 31, 2014, was $159.4 million, consisting of $36.1 million in non-recurring system purchases and $123.3 million in recurring payments for support, Business Management Services and SAAS contracts. The backlog total excludes amounts related to systems installed during 2012 under contracts for which a portion of the consideration was to be received and revenue recognized in subsequent periods upon hospitals successfully achieving meaningful use designation. Although the related system installations were substantially completed during 2012, and no additional such contracts have been offered since 2012, the total remaining accumulated unrecognized revenue related to such contracts as of December 31, 2014, was approximately $0.5 million.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure which CPSI defines as net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of capital assets. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is net cash provided by operating activities. The Company believes free cash flow is a useful measure of performance and uses this measure as an indication of the financial resources of the Company and its ability to generate cash.
