"CoreCard’s strong performance continued in the second quarter and resulted in total revenue of $15.2 million in-line with our expectations,” said Leland Strange, CEO of CoreCard Corporation.

Additionally, we achieved a new license tier as discussed on our last earnings call which resulted in $1.8 million of license revenue in the second quarter. We continue to invest in our platform and processing capabilities, which are showing encouraging results.

Mr. Strange continued, "Due to solid performance during the first half of 2022, we are confident in top-line growth expectations of at least 30% for fiscal 2022, compared to our previously provided guidance of a range of 25% to 30%. The opportunity ahead of us is significant, and CoreCard remains a growth business focused on meeting the evolving needs of modern issuers while generating long-term value for our shareholders."
