MIND CTI Reports Second Quarter 2022 Results
Yoqneam, Israel, August 11, 2022 MIND C.T.I. LTD. – (NasdaqGM:MNDO), a leading provider of convergent end-to-end prepaid/postpaid billing and customer care product-based solutions for service providers, unified communications analytics and call accounting solutions for enterprises as well as enterprise messaging solutions, today announced results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2022.
The following will summarize our major developments in the second quarter of 2022 as well as our business. The financial results can be found in the Company News section of our website at http://www.mindcti.com/company/news/ and in our Form 6-K.
- Revenues of $5.2 million, compared with $7.2 million in the second quarter of 2021 with the decrease mainly attributed to the messaging segment, which generated revenues of approximately $1.7 million during the second quarter of 2022, compared with $3.6 million in the second quarter of 2021.
- Operating income of $1.3 million, or 25% of total revenues, compared with $1.9 million, or 26% of total revenues in the second quarter of 2021.
- Net income was $1.2 million, or $0.06 per share, compared with $1.5 million, or $0.08 per share in the second quarter of 2021.
- Multiple follow-on orders, including one major upgrade.
- Cash flow from operating activities in the quarter of $1.6 million, compared with $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2021.
Six Month Financial Highlights
- Revenues of $10.9 million, compared with $13.3 million in the first six months of 2021, with the decrease mainly attributed to the messaging segment.
- Operating income of $2.9 million, or 27% of total revenues, compared with $3.5 million or 26% of total revenues in the first six months of 2021.
- Net income of $2.7 million, or $0.14 per share, compared with $3.0 million, or $0.15 per share in the first six months of 2021.
- Cash flow from operating activities in the first six months of 2022 was $2.1 million, compared with $3.8 million in the first six months of 2021.
Monica Iancu, MIND CTI CEO, commented: “The strong decrease in our revenues was expected, since, as previously announced, the unprecedented growth we encountered in 2021, in our messaging segment, was temporary in nature. In 2021, our messaging segment was favorably impacted by singular campaigns carried out by a few customers. Our billing and related services segment continues to be challenging and while we are excited with the ongoing flow of orders for expansions of the platform from existing customers, we were disappointed by the loss of one customer, that we supported for over eight years. We continue to be focused on the implementations of our billing platform for one new customer and one major upgrade.”
Financial Income and Cash Position
Financial income fluctuates from quarter to quarter. Our financial income (expenses), consists mainly of interest earned on bank deposits and short-term investments, gains and losses from the change in value and realization of marketable securities, gains and losses from the conversion of monetary balance sheet items denominated in non-dollar currencies into dollars, net of financing costs, and bank charges.
Our cash position, including short and long-term deposits and marketable securities, was $15.1 million as of June 30, 2022, compared with $15.4 million as of June 30, 2021. Cash position fluctuates between quarters as a result of timing of payments.
As previously announced, the Board declared, on March 10, 2022, a cash dividend of $0.26 per share before withholding tax. The dividend declared and distributed in April 2022 was approximately $5.2 million.
Revenue Distribution for Q2 2022
Europe represented 51% (including the Message Mobile and GTX revenues in Germany that represented 33%), the Americas represented 43%, and the rest of the world represented 6% of total revenues.
Customer care and billing software totaled $2.9 million, or 55% of total revenues, enterprise messaging and payment solutions were $1.7 million, or 33% of total revenues and enterprise call accounting software totaled $0.6 million, or 12% of total revenues.
Licenses totaled $0.2 million, or 4% of total revenues, while maintenance and additional services were $5.0 million, or 96% of total revenues.

Multiple Orders and one New Win
This quarter’s follow-on orders include a significant upgrade to our MINDBill version 10 with a customer that we supported for over 20 years. We are proud that, after evaluation of alternatives, MIND was the selected partner. This customer’s business has grown continuously, currently having around 1.4 million subscribers. The MINDBill system is the pillar for handling the entire revenue management growth as well as the provisioning of network elements. MIND’s open APIs are used for creating interfaces for the CRM and many other satellite systems.
Our new win is with a leading mobile communications operator in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). The project includes implementation of our MINDBill convergent BSS and the migration of around 2 million subscribers to the MINDBill platform. The project is expected to be completed in the first half of 2023.
The company held its Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on June 30, 2022.
The following proposed resolutions were approved:
- to appoint Fahn Kanne & Co. Grant Thornton Israel as the Company’s independent auditor until the close of the following Annual General Meeting and to authorize the Board of Directors of the Company to determine its remuneration or to delegate the Audit Committee thereof to do so;
- to approve an amendment to the Articles of Association to add forum selection provisions; and
- to re-elect Ms. Monica Iancu as a Class I director of the Company until the close of 2025 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders of the Company.
The following proposed resolution was not approved:
- to re-approve the existing Compensation Policy.
Under the Israel Companies Law, public companies, such as the Company, must adopt a compensation policy with respect to the terms of service and employment of their directors and officers. The compensation policy must be reviewed and re-approved every three years. The compensation policy must be approved by: (i) the board of directors, upon the recommendation of the compensation committee; and (ii) the shareholders of the Company. To pass, a majority of the minority/disinterested shareholders must vote in favor of the policy. If the requisite majority of shareholders for a company’s proposed policy is not obtained, the Companies Law entitles the board of directors to adopt the policy anyway if it re-evaluates the policy and, after receiving the compensation committee’s recommendation on the matter, resolves based on detailed reasoning that, despite the opposition of shareholders, the adoption of a compensation policy is in the Company’s best interests.
Since the existing Compensation Policy was not approved by our shareholders, our Board of Directors re-evaluated the policy, received the compensation committee’s recommendation on the matter and resolved based on detailed reasoning that the re-adoption of the existing compensation policy is in the Company’s best interests.
