Let’s see how things have shaped up for the upcoming announcement.

Factors at Play

Tyler’s second-quarter performance is likely to have been positively impacted by big-value deals in public safety. In addition, the company’s recently-closed acquisitions are anticipated to have brought in incremental revenues during the quarter under review.

This April, Tyler completed the proposed acquisition of NIC Inc. to bank on the pandemic-induced shift to online services and electronic payments by governments. This buyout will likely be accretive to Tyler’s non-GAAP earnings, EBITDA, recurring revenue mix and free cash flow per share in 2021.

In the same month, Tyler purchased cloud-based school scheduling platform, ReadySub, to expand and strengthen its school portfolio. In late March, the company announced the acquisition of DataSpec, a veterans’ claim management software firm, for an undisclosed amount. Apart from enhancing client base, these acquisitions are anticipated to have created opportunities of cross selling for Tyler, thereby boosting its revenues during the second quarter.

However, the pandemic-induced economic and business disruptions might have continued hurting the company’s top line during the period in discussion.

Delays in procurement processes and lengthening sales cycles, as public sector entities are now more focused on pandemic-related issues, might have hurt its revenues in the quarter under review. During its first-quarter earnings call, the company had stated that longer sales cycles and delays in procurement processes had negatively impacted its software licenses and services revenues.

Besides, higher employee healthcare expenses are expected to have eroded Tyler’s operating margins during the quarter under review.
