The Corporate and Other segment (about 5%) includes revenue and costs from hardware and other products not attributed to any of the other three segments, as well as operating costs not directly attributable to the other three segments.

Overall, More than 60% of the company's revenue comes from its service and support division, which includes outsourcing and cloud, product delivery and services, and in-house support; while remaining revenue is contributed by processing activities.

Financial Performance

Revenue for fiscal 2020 was $1.7 billion. In fiscal 2020, revenues increased 9% or $144.4 million compared to fiscal 2019. Deconversion fees increased $23.7 million to $53.9 million compared to the prior fiscal year. Revenue from fiscal 2020 acquisitions totaled $9.0 million. Excluding these factors, adjusted revenue increased 7%, with growth in each of its revenue streams.

Net income increased 9% to $296.7 million in fiscal 2020 from $271.9 million in fiscal 2019 primarily due to increased deconversion fee revenue, organic growth in its lines of revenue, year over year, and inorganic contributions from the company's fiscal 2020 acquisition.

Cash held by the company at the end of fiscal 2020 increased to $213.3 million compared to $93.6 million in the prior year. Cash provided by operations was $510.5 million while cash used for investing and financing activities were $197.9 million and $192.9 million, respectively. Main uses of cash were cost of computer software developed and dividends paid.

Strategy

The company's fundamental business strategy is to generate organic revenue and earnings growth augmented by strategic acquisitions. JHA execute this strategy by: providing commercial banks and credit unions with core operating systems that provide excellent functionality and support in-house and outsourced delivery environments with identical functionality; expanding each core customer relationship by cross-selling complementary products and services that enhance the functionality provided by its core information processing systems; providing highly specialized core agnostic complementary products and services to financial institutions, including institutions not utilizing a Jack Henry core operating system, and diverse corporate entities; maintaining a company-wide commitment to customer service that consistently exceeds its customers' expectations and generates high levels of customer retention; and capitalizing on the company's acquisition strategy.

Mergers and Acquisitions

In mid-2019, JHA acquired Geezeo, a Boston-based provider of retail and business digital financial management solutions for an undisclosed amount. Geezeo's open and user-centric Application Programming Interface (API) allows for flexible integration within most FIs' online and mobile banking environments. Geezeo's solutions are sold to Jack Henry's core bank and credit union clients and to the non-core clients supported by its ProfitStars division.
