Item 1. Business.

Overview
Agilysys is a leading technology company that provides innovative software for point-of-sale (POS), property management (PMS), inventory and procurement, workforce management, analytics, document management and mobile and wireless solutions and services to the hospitality industry. Our solutions and services allow property managers to better connect, interact and transact with their customers and enhance their customer relationships by streamlining operations, improving efficiency, increasing guest recruitment and wallet share, and enhancing the overall guest experience. We serve four major market sectors: Gaming, both corporate and tribal; Hotels, Resorts and Cruise; Foodservice Management; and Restaurants, Universities, Stadia and Healthcare. A significant portion of our consolidated revenue is derived from contract support, maintenance and subscription services.

Agilysys operates throughout North America, Europe and Asia, with corporate services located in Alpharetta, GA. For more information, visit www.agilysys.com.

The sales of our Retail Solutions Group (RSG) business and United Kingdom business entity (UK entity) each represented a disposal of a component of an entity. As such, the operating results of RSG and the UK entity have been reported as a component of discontinued operations in Item 6. Selected Financial Data, of this Annual Report, for the twelve months ended March 31, 2014 and March 31, 2013.

Our principal executive offices are located at 425 Walnut Street, Suite 1800, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45202 and our corporate services are located at 1000 Windward Concourse, Suite 250, Alpharetta, Georgia, 30005.

Reference herein to any particular year or quarter refers to periods within our fiscal year ended March 31. For example, fiscal 2017 refers to the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017.

History and Significant Events

Organized in 1963 as Pioneer-Standard Electronics, Inc., an Ohio corporation, we began operations as a distributor of electronic components and, later, enterprise computer solutions. Exiting the former in fiscal 2003 with the sale of our Industrial Electronic Division, we used the proceeds to reduce debt, fund growth of our enterprise solutions business and acquire businesses focused on higher-margin and more specialized solutions for the hospitality and retail industries. At the same time, we changed our name to Agilysys, Inc.

In fiscal 2004, we acquired Kyrus Corporation and became a provider of IBM retail solutions and services in the supermarket, chain drug, general retail, and hospitality segments. In that same year, the acquisition of Inter-American Data, Inc. allowed us to become the leading developer and provider of technology solutions for property and inventory management in the casino and resort industries.

In calendar 2007, we divested KeyLink Systems and exited the enterprise computer distribution business. We used the proceeds from that sale to return cash to shareholders and fund a number of acquisitions that broadened our solutions and capabilities portfolios. We acquired InfoGenesis and Visual One Systems Corp. in calendar 2007, significantly expanding our specialized offerings to the hospitality industry through enterprise-class, POS and software solutions tailored for a variety of applications in cruise, golf, spa, gaming, lodging, resort, and catering. These offerings feature highly intuitive, secure and robust solutions, easily scalable across multiple departments or property locations. In fiscal 2008, we began reporting three primary operating segments: Hospitality Solutions Group (HSG), Retail Solutions Group (RSG) and Technology Solutions Group (TSG).

In fiscal 2012, we sold our TSG segment and restructured our business model to focus on higher-margin, profitable growth opportunities in the hospitality and retail sectors. We also reduced our real-estate footprint and lowered overhead costs by relocating corporate services from Solon, Ohio to Alpharetta, Georgia, thus moving our senior management team closer to our operating units.

On July 3, 2014 we purchased certain assets from Dining Ventures, Inc. The acquired assets are the base for our rGuest® Seat product, a dining reservations and table management application.

On July 1, 2013, we completed the sale of our RSG business to Kyrus Solutions, Inc. (Kyrus), an affiliate of Clearlake Capital Group, L.P. Following completion of the transaction, our business focused exclusively on hospitality solutions and the growth opportunities in the hospitality market.

On March 31, 2014, we completed the sale of our United Kingdom business entity (UK entity) to Verteda Limited (Verteda), led by the Company’s former European management team. In connection with the sale, we have entered into a multi-year distribution agreement, whereby Verteda distributes certain Agilysys products within the U.K. marketplace. We continue to manage all property management system accounts as well as key global accounts in the EMEA market.

Today, we are focused on providing state-of-the-art, end-to-end solutions that enhance guest experiences and allow our customers to promote their respective brands. We help our customers win the guest recruitment battle and, in turn, grow revenue, reduce costs and increase efficiency. This is accomplished by developing and deploying intuitive solutions that increase speed and accuracy, thereby enabling more effective management, intelligent upselling, reduced shrinkage, improved brand recognition and better control of the customer relationship. Our strategy is to increase the proportion of revenue we derive from ongoing support and maintenance agreements, software as a subscription services, cloud applications and professional services.

Products:

The hospitality industry has long been focused on operating an end-to-end business, but the technology vendors that serviced the industry have been focused on product-centric solutions that make use of a high number of software modules and operating silos. We have evolved our approach to the industry to an integrated "platform" centric solutions for Lodging, Food & Beverage and Payments applications that looks to leverage the entire business, by investing in the development of a web services oriented architecture enterprise platform. Our rGuest™ platform is aimed at transitioning our product and services offerings to better address the needs of hospitality operators as they focus on building better connections with guests, pre-, during and post-visit. The rGuest platform facilitates an end-to-end solution that helps our customers improve guest services, increase top-line performance and reduce operating costs, which leads to opportunities for higher profitability. Our next-generation of products and services are aimed at helping hospitality operators recruit customers into their facilities, increase their wallet share from each customer and improve the overall guest experience from the initial customer touch point through the post-visit experience.

The rGuest platform underlies our industry leading hospitality solutions that are being introduced to operators of all sizes and with varying needs.

Industry and Markets

We offer innovative point-of-sale, property management, inventory and procurement, workforce management, analytics, document management and mobile and wireless solutions and services for customers of varying sizes in the hospitality industry. We serve
four major market sectors: Gaming, both corporate and tribal; Hotels, Resorts and Cruise; Foodservice Management; and Restaurants, Universities, Stadia and Healthcare.

The hospitality industry encompasses a wide variety of market sectors and customers. We operate throughout North America, Europe and Asia, with corporate services located in Alpharetta, GA. Sales to customers outside of the United States represent approximately 6% of total sales.

The hospitality industry is highly fragmented and composed of a number of defined markets including lodging, casinos, cruise ships, resorts and spas, franchise operators, restaurant chains, stadiums, and arenas, among others. For example, in the lodging segment, no single hotel brand accounts for more than 4% of all hotel rooms in the United States. According to STR Global, the U.S. lodging industry generated approximately $189.5 billion in lodging revenue in calendar 2015, a 7.2% increase over 2014, while PwC's, Hospitality Directions US 2017, reports an average of approximately 65.5% of approximately 5.0 million available rooms occupied in 2016 at an average daily rate (ADR) of $124.01. This compares with 65.4% in 2015 at an ADR of $120.31.

The hospitality business is sensitive to the strength of domestic and global economic and credit conditions. Business and destination resort travel are highly correlated with the economic conditions in their respective markets. Competition is intense for consumer spending, and hospitality industry participants are seeking ways to increase their visibility and appeal as well as enhance the experience of their guests. In its 2017 Travel and Hospitality Industry Outlook, Deloitte observed that travel companies should leverage an increased awareness of customer expectations, re-imagined technology strategy, and differentiated offerings to provide unmatched travel experiences. Our products and solutions are meant to leverage the opportunity these challenges create by providing our customers with a higher degree of guest connectivity and added engagement tools that will enable them to better capitalize on their brand equity, and more profitably manage their operations, and grow their business. In addition to product solutions that are designed and customized to meet unique facility or multi-facility needs, we also provide an array of support and subscription options geared towards maintaining systems and professional services for implementation and rollouts.

We have a significant customer base in the commercial casino and gaming sector. According to CPA firm Rubin Brown's Gaming Services Group, US Gaming industry annual revenues surpassed $73 billion in 2016, as compared to approximately $71 billion in 2015. Amenities in contemporary casinos extend well beyond gaming to include a variety of entertainment and leisure options as well as modern convention centers and meeting facilities to attract the corporate market. International gaming markets are growing rapidly both in size and new jurisdictions. Asian gaming markets continue to generate robust growth. Gross gaming revenue in Macau exceeds that of the Las Vegas Strip, with a number of the current and planned properties in the region operated by U.S.-based companies. As the market share leader in providing PMS systems to casinos on the Las Vegas Strip, we are well positioned to benefit from these strong and long-standing relationships as our customer base expands into international markets. Additionally, as gaming operators

migrate toward cashless operations, optimization of non-gaming spend and digital track-and-log of unique guest behavior, we are able to provide the requisite technologies and expertise to satisfy their needs.

We also have expertise in serving the unique needs of Cruise ship operators. Guests and potential customers are expecting an experience that reflects their unique tastes, preferences and travel habits and cruise operators have seen the need to adequately support the increasing level of personalization and detail required to capture the highest level of guest satisfaction. Our products and services are designed to best help them deliver on this critical part of their business. According to the Cruise Lines International Association and Cruise Market Watch 2017, cruise lines continued the growth trends of recent years in 2016. The worldwide cruise ship fleet currently stands at 448 ships and the current order book for 2016 includes 26 new builds, with 97 new ships to be delivered by 2026. The industry carried an estimated 24.2 million passengers in 2016, up from nearly 23.2 million passengers in 2015.

Customers

Our customers include large, medium-sized and boutique companies, both owned and franchised, as well as divisions or departments of large corporations in the hospitality industry. We concentrate on serving the needs of customers in a range of customer-focused settings where brand differentiation is important, particularly in the lodging, casino, destination resort, cruise line, foodservice industries where competition for guest recruitment is intense. Our current customer base is highly fragmented, with the exception of one customer representing approximately 10% of consolidated revenue from continuing operations for the period ended March 31, 2017.

Seasonality

We have traditionally experienced seasonal revenue weakness during our fiscal first quarter ending June 30. Additionally, the timing of large one-time orders, such as those associated with significant remarketed product sales around large customer refresh cycles or significant volume rollouts, occasionally creates volatility in our quarterly results.

Competition

Our solutions face a highly competitive market. Competition exists with respect to developing and maintaining relationships with customers, pricing for products and solutions, and customer support and service.

We compete with other full-service providers that sell and service bundled POS and PMS solutions comprised of hardware, software, support and services. These companies, some of which are much larger than we are, include Oracle Corp., NCR, Constellation Software, Inc. and Infor. We also compete with software companies like IDeaS Revenue Solutions, POSitouch, Northwind and Xpient Solutions. In addition, we compete with PMS systems that are designed and maintained in-house by large hotel chains.

Environmental Matters

We believe we are in compliance in all material respects with all applicable environmental laws. Presently, we do not anticipate that such compliance will have a material effect on capital expenditures, earnings or competitive position with respect to any of our operations.

Employees

As of May 24, 2017, we had 596 employees. We are not a party to any collective bargaining agreements, have had no strikes or work stoppages and consider our employee relations to be good.

Item 1A.  Risk Factors.

Risks Relating to Our Business

Our future success will depend on our ability to develop new products, product upgrades and services that achieve market acceptance.

Our business is characterized by rapid and continual changes in technology and evolving industry standards. We believe that in order to remain competitive in the future we will need to continue to develop new products, product upgrades and services, requiring the investment of significant financial resources. If we fail to accurately anticipate our customer's needs and technological trends, or are otherwise unable to complete the development of a product or product upgrade on a timely basis, we will be unable to introduce new products or product upgrades into the market on a timely basis, if at all, and our business and operating results would be materially and adversely affected.

The development process for most new products and product upgrades is complicated, involves a significant commitment of time and resources and is subject to a number of risks and challenges including:
 
Managing the length of the development cycle for new products and product enhancements, which has frequently been longer than we originally expected;

Adapting to emerging and evolving industry standards and to technological developments by our competitors and customers; and

Extending the operation of our products and services to new and evolving platforms, operating systems and hardware products, such as mobile devices.

If we are not successful in managing these risks and challenges, or if our new products, product upgrades, and services are not technologically competitive or do not achieve market acceptance, our business and operating results could be adversely affected.

If we fail to meet our customers' performance expectations, our reputation may be harmed, and we may be exposed to legal liability.

Our ability to attract and retain customers depends to a large extent on our relationships with our customers and our reputation for high quality professional services and integrity. As a result, if a customer is not satisfied with our services or solutions, our reputation may be damaged. Moreover, if we fail to meet our clients' performance expectations, we may lose clients and be subject to legal liability, particularly if such failure adversely impacts our clients' businesses.

In addition, many of our projects are critical to the operations of our customers' businesses. While our contracts typically include provisions designed to limit our exposure to legal claims relating to our products and services, these provisions may not adequately protect us or may not be enforceable in all cases. The general liability insurance coverage that we maintain, including coverage for errors and omissions, is subject to important exclusions and limitations. We cannot be certain that this coverage will continue to be available on reasonable terms or will be available in sufficient amounts to cover one or more large claims, or that the insurer will not disclaim coverage as to any future claim. A successful assertion of one or more large claims against us that exceeds our available insurance coverage or changes in our insurance policies, including premium increases or the imposition of large deductible or co-insurance requirements, could adversely affect our profitability.

We face extensive competition in the markets in which we operate, and our failure to compete effectively could result in price reductions and/or decreased demand for our products and services.

Several companies offer products and services similar to ours. The rapid rate of technological change in the hospitality market makes it likely we will face competition from new products designed by companies not currently competing with us. We believe our competitive ability depends on our product offerings, our experience in the hospitality industry, our product development and systems integration capability, and our customer service organization. There is no assurance, however, that we will be able to compete effectively in the hospitality technology market in the future.


13


We compete for customers based on several factors, including price. In some cases, we may have to reduce our pricing to obtain business. If we are not able to maintain favorable pricing for our products and services, our profit margin and our profitability could suffer.

Actual or perceived security vulnerabilities in our software products may result in reduced sales or liabilities.

Our software may be used in connection with processing sensitive data (e.g., credit card numbers). It may be possible for the data to be compromised if our customer does not maintain appropriate security procedures. In those instances, the customer may attempt to seek damages from us. While we believe that all of our current software complies with applicable industry security requirements and that we take appropriate security measures to reduce the possibility of breach through our support and other systems, we cannot assure that our customers' systems will not be breached, or that all unauthorized access can be prevented. If a customer, or other person, seeks redress from us as a result of a security breach, our business could be adversely affected.

Cloud-based platform and software applications presents increased security risks.

As we expand our cloud-based platform and software hosting capabilities, including our rGuest products, and offer more of our software applications to our customers on a cloud-based basis, our responsibility for data and system security with respect to data held in our hosting centers increases significantly. While we believe that our current platform, software applications and data centers comply with applicable laws and industry security requirements, and while we believe that we use appropriate security measures to reduce the possibility of unauthorized access or misuse of data in the data centers, we cannot provide absolute assurance that our cloud-based applications will not be breached, or that all unauthorized access can be prevented. If a security breach were to occur, a customer, regulatory agency, or other person could seek redress from us, which could adversely affect our business.

If we fail to attract and retain key employees, our business may be harmed.

Our success depends on the skill, experience and dedication of our employees. If we are unable to attract and retain sufficiently experienced and capable personnel, especially in product development, customer services and support, operations, sales and management, our business and financial results may suffer. For example, if we are unable to attract and retain a sufficient number of skilled technical personnel, our ability to develop high quality products and provide high quality customer service may be impaired. Experienced and capable personnel in the technology industry remain in high demand, and there is continual competition for their talents. When talented employees leave, we may have difficulty replacing them, and our business may suffer. There can be no assurance that we will be able to successfully attract and retain the personnel that we need.

We may incur goodwill, intangible asset and capitalized software development impairment charges that adversely affect our operating results.

As of March 31, 2017 we had $19.6 million, $8.5 million, and $47.0 million of goodwill, intangible assets, net, and software development costs, net, respectively, on our consolidated balance sheet. We review our goodwill, intangible assets and capitalized software development costs for impairment on at least an annual basis. Our future operating results and the market price of our common stock could be materially adversely affected if we are required to write down the carrying value of goodwill, intangible assets or capitalized software development in the future.

We may be subject to claims of infringement of third-party intellectual property rights.

While we do not believe that our products and services infringe any patents or other intellectual property rights, from time to time, we receive claims that we have infringed the intellectual property rights of others. On April 6, 2012, Ameranth, Inc. filed a complaint against us for patent infringement in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California alleging that point-of-sale and property management and other hospitality information technology products sold by us infringe patents owned by Ameranth. This lawsuit remains pending.

This lawsuit and any other such claim, with or without merit, could result in costly litigation and distract management from day-to-day operations. If we are found liable, we could be obligated to pay significant damages or enter into license agreements.

We may not be able to enforce or protect our intellectual property rights.

We rely on a combination of copyright, patent, trademark and trade secret laws and restrictions on disclosure to protect our intellectual property rights. We cannot be certain that the steps we have taken will prevent unauthorized use of our technology. Any failure to protect our intellectual property rights would diminish or eliminate the competitive advantages that we derive from our proprietary technology.


14


We are subject to litigation, which may be costly.

As a company that does business with many customers, employees and suppliers, we are subject to litigation. The results of such litigation are difficult to predict, and we may incur significant legal expenses if any such claim were filed. While we generally take steps to reduce the likelihood that disputes will result in litigation, litigation is very commonplace and could have an adverse effect on our business.

Our cloud-based solutions present execution and competitive risks.

Our solutions offered in the cloud accessible via the web without present new and difficult technology challenges. These offerings depend on integration of third-party hardware, software and cloud hosting vendors working together with our products. As a result, we may be subject to claims if customers experience service disruptions, breaches or other quality issues related to our cloud-based solutions.

Continuing challenging global economic conditions could adversely affect our business and financial results.

Global economic conditions continue to be challenging. Our revenue and profitability depend significantly on general economic conditions and the level of capital available to our customers. Our business trends and revenue growth continue to be affected by the challenging economic climate. These difficult economic conditions and the uncertainty about future economic conditions may adversely affect our customers' level of spending, ability to obtain financing for purchases, ability to make timely payments to us and adoption of new technologies, which could require us to increase our allowance for doubtful accounts, negatively impact our days sales outstanding, lead to increased price competition and adversely affect our results of operations.

Our dependence on certain strategic partners makes us vulnerable to the extent we rely on them.

We rely on a concentrated number of vendors for the majority of our hardware and for certain software and related services needs. We do not have long term agreements with many of these vendors. If we can no longer obtain these hardware, software or services needs from our major suppliers due to mergers, acquisitions or consolidation within the marketplace, material changes in their partner programs, their refusal to continue to supply to us on reasonable terms or at all, and we cannot find suitable replacement suppliers, it may have a material adverse impact on our future operating results and gross margins.

If we fail to maintain an effective system of internal controls, we may not be able to detect fraud, which could have a material adverse effect on our business.

While we believe our internal control over financial reporting is effective, a controls system cannot provide absolute assurance that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our company have been detected.

We have encountered risks associated with maintaining large cash balances.

While we have attempted to invest our cash balances in investments generally considered to be relatively safe, we nevertheless confront credit and liquidity risks. Bank failures could result in reduced liquidity or the actual loss of money held in deposit accounts in excess of federally insured amounts, if any.

We may have exposure to greater than anticipated tax liabilities.

Some of our products and services may be subject to sales taxes in states where we have not collected and remitted such taxes from our customers. We have reserves for certain state sales tax contingencies based on the likelihood of obligation. These contingencies are included in “Accrued liabilities” in our Consolidated Balance Sheets. We believe we have appropriately accrued for these contingencies. In the event that actual results differ from these reserves, we may need to make adjustments, which could materially impact our financial condition and results of operations.

If we acquire new businesses, we may not be able to successfully integrate them or attain the anticipated benefits.

As part of our operating history and growth strategy, we have acquired other businesses. In the future, we may continue to seek acquisitions. We can provide no assurance that we will be able to identify and acquire targeted businesses or obtain financing for such acquisitions on satisfactory terms. The process of integrating acquired businesses into our operations may result in unforeseen difficulties and may require a disproportionate amount of resources and management attention. If integration of our acquired businesses is not successful, we may not realize the potential benefits of an acquisition or suffer other adverse effects.


15




Risks Relating to the Industries We Serve

Our business depends to a significant degree on the hospitality industry and a weakening could adversely affect our business and results of operations.

Because our customer base is concentrated in the hospitality industry, our business is largely dependent on the health of that industry. Our sales are dependent in large part on the health of the hospitality industry, which in turn is dependent on the domestic and international economy.  Instabilities or downturns in the hospitality industry could disproportionately impact our revenue, as clients may exit the industry or delay, cancel or reduce planned expenditures for our products. A general downturn in the hospitality industry could disproportionately impact our revenue, as clients may exit the industry or delay, cancel or reduce planned expenditures for our products.

Higher oil and gas prices worldwide could have a material adverse impact on the hospitality industry, and indirectly, on our business.

Material increases in oil and gas prices tend to reduce discretionary spending by consumers, such as on travel and dining, as well as on retail spending generally. Reductions in discretionary spending by consumers adversely affects our customers and, indirectly, our business. Moreover, increases in oil and gas prices also directly adversely affects our customer base in other ways. For example, oil and gas price increases can result in higher ingredient and food costs for our restaurant customers.

Consolidation in the hospitality industry could adversely affect our business.

Customers that we serve may seek to achieve economies of scale and other synergies by combining with or acquiring other companies. The hospitality industry has experienced recent consolidations, including the hotel and casino sectors of the industry. Although recent consolidations in the hospitality industry have not materially adversely affected our business, there is no assurance that future consolidations will not have such affect. For example, if one of our current customers merges or consolidates with a company that relies on another provider's products or services, it could decide to reduce or cease its purchases of products or services from us, which could have an adverse effect our business.

Risks Relating to Our Stock

Our stock has been volatile and we expect that it will continue to be volatile.

Our stock price has been volatile, and we expect it will continue to be volatile. For example, during the year ended March 31, 2017, the trading price of our common stock ranged from a high of $11.76 to a low of $8.78. The volatility of our stock price may be due to factors other than those specific to our business, such as economic news or other events generally affecting the trading markets. Additionally, our ownership base has been and may continue to be concentrated in a few shareholders, which could increase the volatility of our common share price over time.

Our largest shareholder, MAK Capital, currently holds approximately 31% of our common shares, which could impact corporate policy and strategy, and MAK Capital's interests may differ from those of other shareholders.

Pursuant to the approval by shareholders of a control share acquisition proposal, MAK Capital holds approximately 31% of our outstanding common shares. As a significant shareholder whose responses could potentially affect the interests of Agilysys and the other shareholders, our Board may consider MAK Capital's potential response to a particular decision of the Board in considering the range of possible corporate policies and strategies in the future, potentially influencing corporate policy and strategic planning.

MAK entered into a Voting Trust Agreement with Computershare, as trustee, which provides that, for both strategic and other transactions requiring at least two-thirds of the voting power to approve, the trustee will vote a certain percentage of MAK Capital's shares in favor of, against, or abstaining from voting in the same proportion as all other shares voted by shareholders (including MAK Capital's shares not being voted by the trustee). If the Voting Trust Agreement, as amended, that MAK entered into with Computershare were to terminate for any reason, MAK Capital would have a level of control that would highly influence the approval or disapproval of transactions requiring under Ohio law the approval of two-thirds of the outstanding common shares, such as a business combination, or majority share acquisition involving the issuance of common shares entitling the holders to exercise one-sixth or more of the voting power of our common shares, each of which requires approval by two-thirds of the outstanding common shares. MAK Capital might also be able to initiate or substantially assist any such transaction. Even with the limitations on MAK Capital's voting power imposed by the Voting Trust Agreement, as amended, it would be more difficult for the other shareholders to approve such a transaction if MAK Capital opposed it, and MAK Capital's interests may differ from those of other shareholders.

Item 1B.  Unresolved Staff Comments.

None.

Item 2.  Properties.

Our corporate services are located in Alpharetta, Georgia where we lease approximately 34,000 square feet of office space. In addition, we lease approximately 34,000 square feet of office space in Las Vegas, Nevada, 22,000 square feet of office space in Bellevue, Washington, and 12,000 square feet of office space in Santa Barbara, California. Internationally, we lease approximately 17,000 square feet of office space in Chennai, India and lease several other smaller office locations throughout Europe and Asia. Our major leases contain renewal options for periods of up to 10 years. We believe that our current facilities and office space are sufficient to meet our needs and do not anticipate any difficulty securing additional space as needed.

Item 3.  Legal Proceedings.

We are involved in legal actions that arise in the ordinary course of business. It is the opinion of management that the resolution of any current pending litigation will not have a material adverse effect on our financial position or results of operations.

On April 6, 2012, Ameranth, Inc. filed a complaint against us for patent infringement in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California. The complaint alleges, among other things, that point-of-sale and property management and other hospitality information technology products, software, components and/or systems sold by us infringe three patents owned by Ameranth purporting to cover generation and synchronization of menus, including restaurant menus, event tickets, and other products across fixed, wireless and/or internet platforms as well as synchronization of hospitality information and hospitality software applications across fixed, wireless and internet platforms. The complaint seeks monetary damages, injunctive relief, costs and attorneys’ fees. At this time, we are not able to predict the outcome of this lawsuit, or any possible monetary exposure associated with the lawsuit.  However, we dispute the allegations of wrongdoing and are vigorously defending ourselves in this matter.

Item 4. Mine Safety Disclosures.
Not applicable.

(1) When a loss is reported, the denominator of diluted earnings per share cannot be adjusted for the dilutive impact of share-based compensation awards because doing so would be anti-dilutive. In addition, when a loss from continuing operations is reported, adjusting the denominator of diluted earnings per share would also be anti-dilutive to the loss per share, even if the entity has net income after adjusting for a discontinued operation. Therefore, for all periods presented, basic weighted-average shares outstanding were used in calculating the diluted net loss per share.

Item 7. Managements’ Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

In “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” (“MD&A”), management explains the general financial condition and results of operations for Agilysys and subsidiaries including:

—    what factors affect our business;
—    what our earnings and costs were;
—    why those earnings and costs were different from the year before;
—    where the earnings came from;
—    how our financial condition was affected; and
—    where the cash will come from to fund future operations.

The MD&A analyzes changes in specific line items in the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows and provides information that management believes is important to assessing and understanding our consolidated financial condition and results of operations. This discussion should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and related Notes that appear in Item 8 of this Annual Report titled, "Financial Statements and Supplementary Data." Information provided in the MD&A may include forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Many factors could cause actual results to be materially different from those contained in the forward-looking statements. See “Forward-Looking Information” on page 3 of this Annual Report and Item 1A “Risk Factors” in Part I of this Annual Report for additional information concerning these items. Management believes that this information, discussion, and disclosure is important in making decisions about investing in Agilysys.

Overview

Agilysys is a leading technology company that provides innovative software for point-of-sale (POS), property management systems
(PMS), inventory and procurement, workforce management, analytics, document management and mobile and wireless solutions and services to the hospitality industry. Our solutions and services allow property managers to better connect, interact and transact with their customers and enhance their customer relationships by streamlining operations, improving efficiency, increasing guest recruitment and wallet share, and enhancing the overall guest experience. Agilysys serves four major market sectors: Gaming, both corporate and tribal; Hotels, Resorts and Cruise; Foodservice Management; and Restaurants, Universities, Stadia and Healthcare. A significant portion of our consolidated revenue is derived from contract support, maintenance and subscription services.

Agilysys operates throughout North America, Europe and Asia, with corporate services located in Alpharetta, GA. For more information, visit www.agilysys.com.

Following the divestiture of the Retail Solutions Group (RSG) in July 2013, and our United Kingdom business entity (UK entity) in March 2014, Agilysys operates as one operating segment and as a pure play software-driven solutions provider to the hospitality industry. The sales of RSG and the UK entity each represented the disposal of a component of an entity. As such, the operating results of RSG and the UK entity have been reported as a component of discontinued operations in Item 6. Selected Financial Data, of this Annual Report, for the twelve months ended March 31,2014 and March 31, 2013.


Our top priority is increasing shareholder value by improving operating and financial performance and profitably growing the business through superior products and services. To that end, we expect to invest a certain portion of our cash on hand to develop and market new software products, to fund enhancements to existing software products, and to expand our customer breadth, both vertically and geographically.

Our strategic plan specifically focuses on:

•    Strong customer focus, with clear and realistic service commitments.
Growing sales of our proprietary offerings: products, support, maintenance and subscription services and professional services.
•    Diversifying our customer base across industries and geographies.
•    Capitalizing on our intellectual property and emerging technology trends.

The primary objective of our ongoing strategic planning process is to create shareholder value by capitalizing on growth opportunities and strengthening our competitive position within the specific technology solutions and in the end markets we service. The plan builds on our existing strengths and targets industry leading growth and peer beating financial and operating results driven by new technology trends and market opportunities. Industry leading growth and peer beating financial and operational results will be achieved through tighter coupling and management of operating expenses of the business and sharpening the focus of our investments

21


to concentrate on growth opportunities with the highest return by seeking the highest margin revenue opportunities in the markets in which we compete.

Revenue - Defined

As required by the SEC, we separately present revenue earned as products revenue, support, maintenance and subscription services revenue or professional services revenue in our Consolidated Statements of Operations. In addition to the SEC requirements, we may, at times, also refer to revenue as defined below. The terminology, definitions, and applications of terms we use to describe our revenue may be different from those used by other companies and caution should be used when comparing these financial measures to those of other companies. We use the following terms to describe revenue:

•    Revenue – We present revenue net of sales returns and allowances.
Products revenue – Revenue earned from the sales of hardware equipment and proprietary and remarketed software.
Support, maintenance and subscription services revenue – Revenue earned from the sale of proprietary and remarketed ongoing support, maintenance and subscription or hosting services.
Professional services revenue – Revenue earned from the delivery of implementation, integration and installation services for proprietary and remarketed products.

Net revenue.  Total revenue increased $7.3 million, or 6.1%, in fiscal 2017 compared to fiscal 2016. Products revenue decreased $3.1 million, or 7.5%, due to approximately a $0.5 million decrease in proprietary software revenue related to the shift in customer preference towards subscription services. Furthermore, a few outsized remarketed hardware and software refresh deals in fiscal 2016 resulted in the remaining decrease. Support, maintenance and subscription services revenue increased $3.2 million, or 5.3%, as a result of continued focus on selling hosted perpetual and subscription services revenue which increased 44.0% year over year, and ongoing support from our proprietary product sales. Hosted perpetual and subscription services revenue comprised 12% of total consolidated revenues in 2017 compared to 9% in 2016. Professional services revenue increased $7.2 million, or 38.3%, as a result of increased volume of customer installation and implementation projects associated with growth in overall proprietary revenue.

Gross profit and gross profit margin. Our total gross profit decreased $4.3 million, or 6.3%, in fiscal 2017 and total gross profit margin decreased 6.6% to 50.0%. Products gross profit decreased $8.0 million and gross profit margin decreased 17.4% to 26.3% primarily as a result of an increase of $8.0 million of developed technology amortization as a result of the rGuest® Stay and Buy development costs being placed into service with the announcement of the property management system and point of sale solution as being generally available during the first and second quarter of fiscal 2017, respectively.

Support, maintenance and subscription services gross profit increased $1.6 million and gross profit margin decreased 1.2% to 73.2% due to a change in the mix of labor resources needed for maintenance of our products and continued investment in our subscription platform. Professional services gross profit increased $2.1 million with the increase in revenue and gross profit margin remained relatively flat increasing 0.1% to 28.2%.

Operating expenses

Operating expenses, excluding the charges for impairments and other fair value adjustments, legal settlements and restructuring, severance and other charges, increased $1.9 million, or 2.6%, in fiscal 2017 compared with fiscal 2016. As a percent of total revenue, operating expenses have declined 2.0% in fiscal 2017 compared with fiscal 2016.


23


Product development.  Product development includes all expenses associated with research and development. Product development increased $2.4 million, or 8.8%, during fiscal 2017 as compared to fiscal 2016. This increase is primarily driven by our continued investment in resources related to both our rGuest® and iconic product enhancements to expand the customer experience across our install base as well as our future offerings with existing and new customers.  In addition, certain research and development costs are capitalized as software development costs upon achieving specific milestones in the development life-cycle. We capitalized approximately $11.9 million and $15.0 million during fiscal 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Sales and marketing.  Sales and marketing increased $1.1 million, or 5.5%, in fiscal 2017 compared with fiscal 2016. The change is due primarily to advertising and promotion which increased $0.9 million related to new lead generation investment in content, search engine marketing, and target prospect databases in order to accelerate the growth in lead acquisition in support of future revenue growth.

General and administrative.  General and administrative decreased $1.9 million, or 8.9%, in fiscal 2017 compared to fiscal 2016. The change is due primarily to a reduction of $0.7 million in forfeiture credits related to unvested share-based compensation expense for the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) whose departures from the company were announced during the third quarter of fiscal 2017.


Depreciation of fixed assets.  Depreciation of fixed assets increased $0.2 million or 9.5% in fiscal 2017 as compared to fiscal 2016.

Amortization of intangibles.  Amortization of intangibles decreased $0.1 million, or 12.0%, in fiscal 2017 as compared to fiscal 2016.

Restructuring, severance and other charges. Restructuring, severance, and other charges increased $1.3 million during fiscal 2017 compared to fiscal 2016. The increase was the result of the following:

CEO separation benefits and related transition costs. During fiscal 2017, the company incurred costs associated with the replacement of the former CEO, including $0.8 million in separation benefits and $0.3 million in search fees in connection with identifying a successor CEO.

Restructuring related severance and early contract termination costs. During fiscal 2017, we completed activities associated with the partnership to resell a third party workforce management solution, and recorded $0.2 million in restructuring charges comprised of severance and other employee related benefits and early contract termination costs. We do not anticipate any additional costs associated with this restructuring activity.

Our restructuring actions are discussed further in Note 4, Restructuring Charges.

Impairments and other fair value adjustments. There were no impairments and other fair value adjustments in fiscal 2017. The $0.2 million in fiscal 2016 was related to the following factors:

Fiscal 2016 Activity:

Intangible write-off (Developed Technology). During fiscal 2016, in connection with the partnership entered into to resell a third party workforce management solution, we determined that the remaining net book value of the acquired developed technology WMx®™ exceeded its net realizable value resulting in an impairment charge of $0.3 million.

Product transition cost fair value adjustment. During fiscal 2016, we recorded a gain of $0.2 million related to the write-off of product transition costs previously accrued for in connection with an impairment of our Guest 360™ property management solution in fiscal 2012. The customer associated with this residual reserve became insolvent during the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Contingent consideration fair value adjustment. During fiscal 2016, we adjusted the fair value of the TimeManagement Corporation (TMC) by $0.1 million to reflect expected settlement and early termination in connection with our strategic transition to enter into a partnership to resell a third party workforce management solution.


Legal settlements. During fiscal 2017 and 2016, we recorded $0.1 million and $0.3 million, respectively, in legal settlements for employment and other business related matters.

For fiscal 2017, the effective tax rate was different than the statutory rate due primarily to the recognition of net operating losses as deferred tax assets, which were offset by increases in the valuation allowance, state taxes and other U.S. permanent book to tax differences. At March 31, 2017, we had $187.6 million of a federal net operating loss carryforward that expires, if unused, in fiscal years 2031 to 2037.

For fiscal 2016, the effective tax rate was different than the statutory rate due primarily to the recognition of net operating losses as deferred tax assets, which were offset by increases in the valuation allowance, death benefits on company owned life insurance, state taxes and other U.S. permanent book to tax differences.

Although the timing and outcome of tax settlements are uncertain, it is reasonably possible that during the next 12 months a reduction in unrecognized tax benefits may occur in the range of zero to $0.1 million of tax and zero to $0.1 million of interest based on the outcome of tax examinations and as a result of the expiration of various statutes of limitations. We are routinely audited; due to the ongoing nature of current examinations in multiple jurisdictions, other changes could occur in the amount of gross unrecognized tax benefits during the next 12 months which cannot be estimated at this time.

Because of our losses in prior periods, we have recorded a valuation allowance offsetting substantially all of our deferred tax assets. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets depends on the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which those temporary differences are deductible. Because of our losses in prior periods, management believes that it is more-likely-than-not that we will not realize the benefits of these deductible differences.

Net revenue. Total revenue increased $16.9 million, or 16.3%, in fiscal 2016 compared to fiscal 2015. Products revenue increased $9.6 million, or 30.1%, with a significant portion of the growth coming from increased sales related to our existing on-premise proprietary offerings, including hardware replacement sales, as well as increased new logo hardware sales associated with our proprietary software sold as a service. Support, maintenance and subscription services revenue increased $4.1 million, or 7.3%, as a result of continued focus on selling hosted perpetual and subscription services revenue which increased 29.0% year over year, and ongoing support from our proprietary product sales. Hosted perpetual and subscription service revenue comprised 9% of total consolidated revenues in 2016 compared to 8% in 2015. Professional services revenue increased $3.2 million, or 20.2%, as a result of increased volume of customer installation and implementation projects associated with growth in overall proprietary product revenue.

Gross profit and gross profit margin. Our total gross profit increased $8.0 million, or 13.4%, in fiscal 2016 and total gross profit margin decreased 140 basis points to 56.6%. Products gross profit increased $5.0 million and gross profit margin increased 250 basis points to 43.7% primarily as a result of a higher mix of lower margin hardware sales, offset by $0.3 million of software amortization benefit related to developed technology becoming fully amortized in the prior year period. Support, maintenance and subscription services gross profit increased $1.2 million and gross profit margin decreased 340 basis points to 74.4% due to a change in the mix of labor resources needed for maintenance of our products and continued investment in our subscription platform. Professional services gross profit increased $1.9 million and gross profit margin increased 620 basis points to 28.0% as a result of higher cost of labor required in the third and fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 to meet a customer commitment that did not recur in fiscal 2016.

Operating expenses
Operating expenses, excluding the charges for asset write-offs and other fair value adjustments, legal settlements and restructuring, severance and other charges, increased $2.7, or 3.9%, in fiscal 2016 compared with fiscal 2015. As a percent of total revenue, operating expenses have declined 7.1% in fiscal 2016 compared with fiscal 2015.

Product development. Product development includes all expenses associated with research and development. Product development increased $1.4 million, or 5.4%, during fiscal 2016 as compared to fiscal 2015. This increase is primarily driven by our our continued investment in resources related to both our rGuest® and iconic product enhancements to expand the customer experience across our
install base as well as our future offerings with existing and new customers. In addition, certain research and development costs are capitalized as software development costs upon achieving specific milestones in the development life-cycle. We capitalized approximately $14.2 million and $17.6 million during fiscal 2016 and 2015, respectively.

27


Sales and marketing. Sales and marketing increased $3.4 million, or 20.7%, in fiscal 2016 compared with fiscal 2015. The change is due primarily to $3.9 million of costs related to an increase in headcount of quota carrying salespeople and commission expense in line with revenue achievements in fiscal 2016 compared to fiscal 2015.

General and administrative. General and administrative remained relatively consistent increasing $0.2 million, or 0.7%, in fiscal 2016 compared to fiscal 2015. The change is primarily due to favorable reductions of $0.9 million as a result of fiscal 2016 and 2015 initiatives to continue to reduce operating costs in line with our company strategy, offset by an increase in incentive compensation of $1.3 million associated with overall improved financial results.

Depreciation of fixed assets. Depreciation of fixed assets remained flat in fiscal 2016 as compared to fiscal 2015.

Amortization of intangibles. Amortization of intangibles decreased $2.2 million, or 64.1%, in fiscal 2016 as compared to fiscal 2015. In October 2013, we initiated an internal ERP replacement project and determined that amortization for our existing ERP system should be accelerated. We recorded approximately $0.9 million in fiscal 2015 of additional amortization in connection with this acceleration. The existing ERP system was fully amortized as of June 30, 2014. Additionally, $1.1 million was recorded during fiscal 2015 related to assets becoming fully amortized and assets being replaced or impaired during fiscal 2015.

Impairments and other fair value adjustments. Impairments and other fair value adjustments decreased $1.5 million from $1.8 million in fiscal 2015 to $0.3 million in fiscal 2016. The net change was driven by the following factors:

Fiscal 2016 Activity:

Intangible write-off (Developed Technology). As of March 31, 2016, in connection with the partnership entered into to resell a third party workforce management solution, we determined that the remaining net book value of the acquired developed technology WMx®™ exceeded its net realizable value resulting in an impairment charge of $0.3 million.

Product transition cost fair value adjustment. During fiscal 2016, we recorded a gain of $0.2 million related to the write-off of product transition costs previously accrued for in connection with an impairment of our Guest 360™ property management solution in fiscal 2012. The customer associated with this residual reserve became insolvent during the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Contingent consideration fair value adjustment. As of March 31, 2016, we adjusted the fair value of the TimeManagement Corporation (TMC) by $0.1 million to reflect expected settlement and early termination in connection with our strategic transition to enter into a partnership to resell a third party workforce management solution.

Fiscal 2015 Activity:

Internal use asset write-off. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, a shift in customer preference for next generation offerings with more features and compatibility as compared to our Elevate™ POS hosted subscription solution, resulted in a write-off in the amount of $1.5 million. In fiscal 2014, we wrote off approximately $0.3 million related to certain internal use software in connection with the ERP system replacement project.

Intangible write-off (Developed Technology and Trade Name). As of March 31, 2015, we determined that the remaining net book value of our InfoGenesis Mobile (IG Mobile) software exceeded its net realizable value resulting in an impairment charge of $1.4 million. This was driven primarily by customer preference for InfoGenesis Flex (IG Flex), another one of our InfoGenesis POS mobility solutions. In addition, during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, certain restructuring activities incurred to better align product development, sales and marketing and general and administrative functions impacted the expected remaining useful life of the products under the Eatec® trade name. The trade name was determined to have a finite life and subsequently written down to its fair value to be amortized over five years. The fair value of this trade name was calculated based on future cash flows over the remaining useful life resulting in an impairment charge of $0.6 million as of March 31, 2015.

Contingent consideration fair value adjustment. The fiscal 2015 write-offs were offset by a gain of $1.6 million recorded in fiscal 2015 to adjust the carrying value of the TimeManagement Corporation (TMC) contingent consideration to fair value. This adjustment was recorded as a result of a decrease in expected revenues associated with the contingent consideration.

Restructuring, severance and other charges. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, we continued our efforts to better align product development and general and administrative functions with our company strategy and to reduce operating costs. To date, we have recorded $0.3 million in restructuring charges related to the Q4 fiscal 2016 restructuring activity, comprised of severance and other employee related benefits. As of March 31, 2016, we had a remaining liability of approximately $0.2 million recorded for the Q4 fiscal 2016 restructuring activity. We expect to record additional restructuring expense related to the Q4 fiscal 2016 restructuring

28


event during fiscal 2017 as those obligations become present and the definition of a liability included in FASB Concepts Statement No. 6, Elements of Financial Statements, is met. These additional charges are not expected to exceed $0.2 million.

Our restructuring actions are discussed further in Note 4, Restructuring Charges.

Legal settlements. During fiscal 2016, we recorded $0.3 million in legal settlements for employment and other business related matters compared to $0.2 million in legal settlements recorded in fiscal 2015 to finalize legal disputes originally estimated and recorded in that fiscal year.

Interest income. Interest income remained relatively consistent during fiscal 2016 as compared to fiscal 2015.

Interest expense. Interest expense consists of costs associated with capital leases and loans on corporate-owned life insurance policies. Interest expense decreased in fiscal 2016 compared to fiscal 2015 due to expiration and non-renewal of certain capital leases.

Other income (expense), net. Other income increased $0.5 million in fiscal 2016 compared to fiscal 2015 primarily due to $0.1 million of changes in cash surrender value of company owned life insurance policies and a $0.5 million gain on the redemption of company owned life insurance policies in 2016.

For fiscal 2016, the effective tax rate was different than the statutory rate due primarily to the recognition of net operating losses as deferred tax assets, which were offset by increases in the valuation allowance, death benefits on company owned life insurance, state taxes and other U.S. permanent book to tax differences.

For fiscal 2015, the effective tax rate was different than the statutory rate due primarily to the recognition of net operating losses as deferred tax assets, which were offset by increases in the valuation allowance, a decrease in unrecognized tax benefits attributable to expiration of statute of limitations, state taxes and other U.S. permanent book to tax differences.

Although the timing and outcome of tax settlements are uncertain, it is reasonably possible that during the next 12 months a reduction in unrecognized tax benefits may occur in the range of zero to less than $0.1 million as a result of the expiration of various statutes of limitations. We are routinely audited and the outcome of tax examinations could also result in a reduction in unrecognized tax benefits. Other changes could occur in the amount of gross unrecognized tax benefits during the next 12 months which cannot be estimated at this time.

Because of our losses in prior periods, we have recorded a valuation allowance offsetting substantially all of our deferred tax assets. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets depends on the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which those

29


temporary differences are deductible. Because of our losses in prior periods, management believes that it is more-likely-than-not that we will not realize the benefits of these deductible differences.



Acquisitions

Purchase of assets from Dining Ventures - Fiscal 2015

On July 3, 2014 we purchased certain assets from Dining Ventures, Inc. The acquired assets are the base for our rGuest® Seat product, a dining reservations and table management application. The purchase consideration consisted of approximately $3.8 million and was funded with cash on hand. Management concluded that this acquisition was not a material acquisition under the provisions of ASC 805, Business Combinations (ASC 805). The results derived from this purchased asset have been included in our Consolidated Financial Statements from the date of acquisition and did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements or related disclosures. 


Restructuring and Related Charges

We recognize restructuring charges when a plan that materially changes the scope of our business or the manner in which that business is conducted is adopted and communicated to the impacted parties, and the expenses have been incurred or are reasonably estimable. In addition, we assess the property and equipment associated with the related facilities for impairment. The remaining useful lives of property and equipment associated with the related operations are re-evaluated based on the respective restructuring plan, resulting in the acceleration of depreciation and amortization of certain assets.

Additional information regarding restructuring charges is provided within the preceding Results of Operations section and in Note 4
to the Consolidated Financial Statements titled, Restructuring Charges.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Overview

Our operating cash requirements consist primarily of working capital needs, operating expenses, capital expenditures, and payments of principal and interest on indebtedness outstanding, which primarily consists of lease and rental obligations at March 31, 2017. We believe that cash flow from operating activities, cash on hand of $49.3 million as of March 31, 2017, and access to capital markets will provide adequate funds to meet our short-and long-term liquidity requirements.

As of March 31, 2017 and March 31, 2016, our total debt was approximately $0.2 million and $0.3 million, respectively, comprised of capital lease obligations in both periods.

At March 31, 2017, 100% of our cash and cash equivalents were deposited in bank accounts or invested in highly liquid investments with original maturity from date of acquisition of three months or less, including investments in commercial paper, of which 91% is located in the United States. Therefore, we believe that credit risk is limited with respect to our cash and cash equivalents balances.

Cash flow provided by (used in) operating activities. Cash flows provided by operating activities were $3.4 million in fiscal 2017. The provision of cash was associated mainly with $6.4 million in increased collections on accounts receivable.


30


Cash flows provided by operating activities were $7.2 million in fiscal 2016. The provision of cash was attributable to $3.2 million in net working capital movements associated mainly with $3.2 million in increased collections on accounts receivable. Working capital movements were positively impacted by $4.1 million related to our operating loss adjusted for depreciation, amortization, share based compensation, asset write-offs and fair value adjustments, loss on disposal of property & equipment, and change in cash surrender value of company owned life insurance.

Cash flows used in operating activities were $2.2 million in fiscal 2015. This was mainly the result of our net loss after adding back certain non-cash items, including $2.2 million of depreciation, $4.8 million in amortization, and $1.8 million of impairments and other fair value adjustments, offset by an overall net use in other operating assets and liabilities of $0.8 million. Change in operating assets and liabilities was driven primarily by increases in accounts receivable and prepaids of $2.5 million, offset by increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $1.7 million.

Cash flow (used in) provided by investing activities. Cash flows used in investing activities in fiscal 2017 were $13.9 million. This is primarily attributed to $11.9 million in development of proprietary software and $4.2 million for purchase of property and equipment, including internal use software.

Cash flows used in investing activities in fiscal 2016 were $21.0 million. This is primarily attributed to $16.1 million in development of proprietary software and $4.8 million for purchase of property and equipment, including internal use software.

Cash flows used in investing activities in fiscal 2015 were $21.6 million. This is primarily attributed to $15.8 million of capitalized software development costs, $4.7 million of fixed asset purchases, $3.8 million for the acquisition of developed technology for our rGuest Seat product, offset by $2.0 million and $0.8 million for proceeds from company owned life insurance policies and sale of the UK business unit, respectively.

Cash flow used in financing activities from continuing operations.  Respectively, in fiscal 2017, 2016 and 2015, the $0.8 million, $0.6 million, and $0.4 million cash flows used in financing activities were primarily comprised of the repurchase of shares to satisfy employee tax withholding and to cover the exercise price of the options, and payments on capital lease obligations.


Investments
Investments in Corporate-Owned Life Insurance Policies

Agilysys invests in corporate-owned life insurance policies, for which some are endorsement split-dollar life insurance arrangements. We entered into non-cancelable agreements with each of the former executives, whereby we must maintain the life insurance policy for a specified amount and split a portion of the policy benefits with their designated beneficiary. Our investment in these corporate-owned life insurance policies were recorded at their cash surrender value, which approximates fair value at the balance sheet date. During fiscal 2017, we received $2.2 million related to the death benefit due to us on redemption of two of these policies. In the consolidated balance sheets at the balance sheet date, the cash surrender value of $0.8 million for the remaining policies were held in “Other non-current assets,” and the present value of future proceeds owed to those executives' designated beneficiary of $0.1 million, which approximates fair value, were recorded within "Other non-current liabilities" in the Consolidated Balance Sheets at the balance sheet date.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have not entered into any off-balance sheet arrangements that have had or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures, or capital resources.

At March 31, 2017, we had a $1.48 million liability reserve for unrecognized income tax positions which is not reflected in the table above.  The timing of potential cash outflows related to the unrecognized tax positions is not reasonably determinable and therefore, is not scheduled. Substantially all of this reserve is included in Other non-current liabilities.   Additional information regarding unrecognized tax positions is provided in Note 10 to the Consolidated Financial Statements titled, Income Taxes.


We believe that cash on hand, funds from continuing operations, and access to capital markets will provide adequate funds to finance capital spending and working capital needs and to service our obligations and other commitments arising during the foreseeable future.

Critical Accounting Policies

MD&A is based upon our Consolidated Financial Statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make significant estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, and expenses and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We regularly evaluate our estimates, including those related to bad debts, inventories, investments, intangible assets, income taxes, restructuring, contingencies and litigation. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources.

Our most significant accounting policies relate to the sale, purchase, and promotion of our products and services. The policies discussed below are considered by management to be critical to an understanding of our Consolidated Financial Statements because their application places the most significant demands on management's judgment, with financial reporting results relying on estimation about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. Specific risks for these critical accounting policies are described in the following paragraphs.

For all of these policies, management cautions that future events rarely develop exactly as forecasted, and the best estimates routinely require adjustment.

Revenue recognition.  We derive revenue from the sale of products (i.e., point of sale hardware, software, server, storage), support, maintenance and subscription services and professional services. Revenue is recorded in the period in which the goods are delivered or services are rendered and when the following criteria are met: persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, the sales price to the customer is fixed or determinable, and collection is reasonably assured. We reduce revenue for estimated discounts, sales incentives, estimated customer returns, and other allowances. Discounts are offered based on the volume of products and services purchased by customers. Shipping and handling fees billed to customers are recognized as revenue and the related costs are recognized in cost of goods sold. Revenue is recorded net of any applicable taxes collected and remitted to governmental agencies.

We frequently enter into multiple-element arrangements with customers including hardware, software, professional consulting services and maintenance support services. For arrangements involving multiple deliverables, when deliverables include software and non-software products and services, we evaluate and separate each deliverable to determine whether it represents a separate unit of accounting based on the following criteria: (a) the delivered item has value to the customer on a stand-alone basis; and (b) if the contract includes a general right of return relative to the delivered item, delivery or performance of the undelivered items is considered probable and substantially in our control.


32



Consideration is allocated to each unit of accounting based on the unit's relative selling prices. In such circumstances, we use a hierarchy to determine the selling price to be used for allocating revenue to each deliverable: (i) vendor-specific objective evidence of selling price (VSOE), and (ii) best estimate of selling price (BESP). VSOE generally exists only when we sell the deliverable separately and is the price actually charged by us for that deliverable. VSOE is established for our software maintenance services and we use BESP to establish selling prices for our non-software related services. BESP is primarily used for elements that are not consistently priced within a narrow range. We determine BESP for a deliverable by considering multiple factors including product class, geography, average discount, and management's historical pricing practices. Amounts allocated to the delivered hardware and software elements are recognized at the time of sale provided the other conditions for revenue recognition have been met. Amounts allocated to the undelivered maintenance and other services elements are recognized as the services are provided or on a straight-line basis over the service period. In certain instances, customer acceptance is required prior to the passage of title and risk of loss of the delivered products. In such cases, revenue is not recognized until the customer acceptance is obtained. Delivery and acceptance generally occur in the same reporting period.

In situations where our solutions contain software that is more than incidental, revenue related to the software and software-related elements is recognized in accordance with authoritative guidance on software revenue recognition. For the software and software-related elements of such transactions, revenue is allocated based on the relative fair value of each element, and fair value is determined by VSOE. If we cannot objectively determine the fair value of any undelivered element included in such multiple-element arrangements, we defer revenue until all elements are delivered and services have been performed, or until fair value can objectively be determined for any remaining undelivered elements. When the fair value of a delivered element has not been established, but fair value exists for the undelivered elements, we use the residual method to recognize revenue. Under the residual method, the fair value of the undelivered elements is deferred and the remaining portion of the arrangement fee is allocated to the delivered elements and is recognized as revenue.

Revenue recognition for complex contractual arrangements, especially those with multiple elements, requires a significant level of judgment and is based upon a review of specific contracts, past experience, the selling price of undelivered elements when sold separately, creditworthiness of customers, international laws and other factors. Changes in judgments about these factors could impact the timing and amount of revenue recognized between periods.

Revenue for hardware sales is recognized when the product is shipped to the customer and when obligations that affect the customer's final acceptance of the arrangement have been fulfilled. A majority of our hardware sales involves shipment directly from its suppliers to the end-user customers. In these transactions, we are the primary obligor as we are responsible for negotiating price both with the supplier and the customer, payment to the supplier, establishing payment terms and product returns with the customer, and we bear the credit risk if the customer does not pay for the goods. As the principal contact with the customer, we recognize revenue and cost of goods sold when we are notified by the supplier that the product has been shipped. In certain limited instances, as shipping terms dictate, revenue is recognized upon receipt at the point of destination or upon installation at the customer site.

We offer proprietary software as well as remarketed software for sale to our customers. We offer our customers the right to license the software under a variety of models. Our customers can license our software under a perpetual model for an upfront fee or a subscription model. For subscription arrangements, we allow customers the right to use software, receive unspecified products as well as unspecified upgrades and enhancements and entitle the customer to receive hosting services for a specified term.  The subscription revenue is generally recognized ratably over the term of the arrangement, typically three to five years.  Revenue from subscription service arrangements is included in Support, maintenance and subscription services in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. A majority of our software sales do not require significant production, modification, or customization at the time of shipment (physically or electronically) to the customer. Substantially all of our software license arrangements do not include acceptance provisions. As such, revenue from both proprietary and remarketed software sales is typically recognized when the software has been shipped. For software delivered electronically, delivery is considered to have occurred when the customer either takes possession of the software via downloading or has been provided with the requisite codes that allow for immediate access to the software based on the U.S. Eastern time zone time stamp.

We also offer proprietary and third-party services to our customers. Proprietary services generally include: consulting, installation, integration and training. Many of our software arrangements include consulting services sold separately under consulting engagement contracts. When the arrangements qualify as service transactions, consulting revenue from these arrangements are accounted for separately from the software revenue. The significant factors considered in determining whether the revenue should be accounted for separately include the nature of the services (i.e., consideration of whether the services are essential to the functionality of the software), degree of risk, availability of services from other vendors, timing of payments, and the impact of milestones or other customer acceptance criteria on revenue realization. If there is significant uncertainty about the project completion or receipt of payment for consulting services, the revenue is deferred until the uncertainty is resolved.

For certain long-term proprietary service contracts with fixed or “not to exceed” fee arrangements, we estimate proportional performance using the hours incurred as a percentage of total estimated hours to complete the project consistent with the percentage-

33



of-completion method of accounting. Accordingly, revenue for these contracts is recognized based on the proportion of the work performed on the contract. If there is no sufficient basis to measure progress toward completion, the revenue is recognized when final customer acceptance is received. Adjustments to contract price and estimated service hours are made periodically, and losses expected to be incurred on contracts in progress are charged to operations in the period such losses are determined. The aggregate of collections on uncompleted contracts in excess of related revenue is shown as a current liability.

If an arrangement does not qualify for separate accounting of the software and consulting services, then the software revenue is recognized together with the consulting services using the percentage-of-completion or completed contract method of accounting. Contract accounting is applied to arrangements that include: milestones or customer-specific acceptance criteria that may affect the collection of revenue, significant modification or customization of the software, or provisions that tie the payment for the software to the performance of consulting services.

We also offer proprietary and third-party support to our customers. Support generally includes: support and maintenance of software and hardware products and subscription services. Revenue relating to proprietary support services is recognized evenly over the coverage period of the underlying agreement within support, maintenance and subscription revenue. In instances where we offer third-party support contracts to our customer, and the supplier is determined to be the primary obligor in the transaction, we report revenue at the time of the sale, only in the amount of the “commission” (equal to the selling price less the cost of sale) received rather than reporting revenue in the full amount of the selling price with separate reporting of the cost of sale.

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts.  We maintain allowances for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the inability or unwillingness of our customers to make required payments. These allowances are based on both recent trends of certain customers estimated to be a greater credit risk, as well as historic trends of the entire customer pool. If the financial condition of our customers were to deteriorate, resulting in an impairment of their ability to make payments, additional allowances may be required. To mitigate this credit risk we perform periodic credit evaluations of our customers.

Inventories. Our inventories are comprised of finished goods. Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market, net of related reserves. The cost of inventory is computed using a weighted-average method. Our inventory is monitored to ensure appropriate valuation. Adjustments of inventories to the lower of cost or market, if necessary, are based upon contractual provisions such as turnover and assumptions about future demand and market conditions. If assumptions about future demand change and/or actual market conditions are less favorable than those projected by management, additional adjustments to inventory valuations may be required. We provide a reserve for obsolescence, which is calculated based on several factors including an analysis of historical sales of products and the age of the inventory. Actual amounts could be different from those estimated.

Income Taxes. Income tax expense includes U.S. and foreign income taxes and is based on reported income before income taxes. We recognize deferred tax assets and liabilities based on the differences between the financial statement carrying amounts and the tax basis of assets and liabilities. The deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the enacted tax rates expected to apply in the periods in which the deferred tax assets or liabilities are anticipated to be settled or realized.

We regularly review our deferred tax assets for recoverability and establish a valuation allowance if it is more likely than not that some portion or all of a deferred tax asset will not be realized. The determination as to whether a deferred tax asset will be realized is made on a jurisdictional basis and is based on the evaluation of positive and negative evidence. This evidence includes historical taxable income, projected future taxable income, the expected timing of the reversal of existing temporary differences and the implementation of tax planning strategies.

We recorded a valuation allowance of $80.0 million as of March 31, 2017 and $77.9 million as of March 31, 2016, related to substantially all of our deferred income tax assets in jurisdictions where there is uncertainty as to the ultimate realization of a benefit from those assets. In the event that we determine that we would be able to realize our deferred tax assets in the future in excess of our net recorded amount, an adjustment to the tax valuation allowance would decrease tax expense in the period such determination was made.

We recognize the tax benefit from uncertain tax positions only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefits recognized from uncertain tax positions are measured at the largest amount of benefit that is greater than fifty percent likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. No tax benefits are recognized for positions that do not meet this threshold. Interest related to uncertain tax positions is recognized as part of the provision for income taxes and is accrued beginning in the period that such interest would be applicable under relevant tax law until such time that the related tax benefits are recognized. Our income taxes are described further in Note 10 to Consolidated Financial Statements titled, Income Taxes.

Goodwill and Other Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets.  Goodwill represents the excess purchase price paid over the fair value of the net assets of acquired companies. Goodwill is tested for impairment on an annual basis, or in interim periods if indicators of potential

34



impairment exist. The Company is also required to compare the fair values of other indefinite-lived intangible assets to their carrying amounts at least annually, or when current events and circumstances require an interim assessment. If the carrying amount of an indefinite-lived intangible asset exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss is recognized.

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, certain restructuring activities incurred to better align product development, sales and marketing and general and administrative functions impacted the expected remaining useful life of the products under the Eatec® trade name. The trade name was determined to have a finite life and subsequently written down to its fair value to be amortized over five years. The remaining indefinite-lived intangible asset is not amortized; rather, it is tested for impairment at least annually by comparing the carrying amount of the asset with the fair value. An impairment loss is recognized if the carrying amount is greater than fair value. Additional information regarding our intangible assets is provided in Note 6, Intangible Assets and Software Development Costs.

Restructuring Charges.  We recognize restructuring charges when a plan that materially changes the scope of our business, or the manner in which that business is conducted, is adopted and communicated to the impacted parties, and the expenses have been incurred or are reasonably estimable. Our restructuring reserves principally include estimates related to employee separation costs and the consolidation and impairment of facilities that will no longer be used in continuing operations. Actual amounts could be different from those estimated. Facility reserves are calculated using a present value of future minimum lease payments, offset by an estimate for future sublease income provided by external brokers. Present value is calculated using a credit-adjusted risk-free rate with a maturity equivalent to the lease term. Our restructuring charges are described further in Note 4 to Consolidated Financial Statements titled, Restructuring Charges.

Share-Based Compensation. We have a stock incentive plan under which we may grant non-qualified stock options, incentive stock options, stock-settled stock appreciation rights, time-vested restricted shares, restricted share units, performance-vested restricted shares, and performance shares. Shares issued pursuant to awards under this plan may be made out of treasury or authorized but unissued shares.

We record compensation expense related to stock options, stock-settled stock appreciation rights, restricted shares, and performance shares granted to certain employees and non-employee directors based on the fair value of the awards on the grant date. The fair value of restricted share and performance share awards is based on the closing price of our common shares on the grant date. The fair value of stock option and stock-settled appreciation right awards is estimated on the grant date using the Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model, which includes assumptions regarding the risk-free interest rate, dividend yield, life of the award, and the volatility of our common shares. Additional information regarding the assumptions used to value share-based compensation awards is provided in Note 14 to the accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements titled, Share-Based Compensation.

Capitalized Software Development Costs.  The capitalization of software development cost for external use begins when a product’s technological feasibility has been established. Capitalization ends when the resulting product is available for general market release. Amortization of the capitalized software is classified within products cost of goods sold in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. For each capitalized software product, the annual amortization is equal to the greater of: (i) the amount computed using the ratio that the software product’s current fiscal year gross revenue bears to the total current fiscal year and anticipated future gross revenues for that product or (ii) the amount computed based on straight-line method over the remaining estimated economic life of the product, which is a range between three and eight years. The amount by which unamortized software costs exceeds the net realizable value, if any, is recognized as a charge to income in the period it is determined. We capitalized approximately $11.9 million, $13.3 million and $17.2 million during fiscal 2017, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Amortization of non-acquired developed capitalized software was $8.0 million, $0.9 million and $1.2 million during fiscal 2017, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Adopted and Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In January 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business, and ASU No. 2017-04, Intangibles- Goodwill and Other (Topic 350) - Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. ASU No. 2017-01 clarifies the definition of a business with the objective of adding guidance to assist entities with evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or businesses. The definition of a business affects many areas of accounting including acquisitions, disposals, goodwill, and consolidation. The guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those periods. While we are still assessing the impact of this standard, we do not believe that the adoption of this guidance will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements. ASU No. 2017-04 eliminates Step 2 of the goodwill impairment test and requires a goodwill impairment to be measured as the amount by which a reporting unit’s carrying amount exceeds its fair value, not to exceed the carrying amount of its goodwill. The ASU is effective for annual or any interim goodwill impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. While we are still assessing the impact of this standard, we do not believe that the adoption of this guidance will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

35



In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-16, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Intra-Entity Transfers of Assets Other Than Inventory, which requires entities to recognize the income tax consequences of an intra-entity transfer of an asset other than inventory when the transfer occurs. The new guidance is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted as of the beginning of an annual reporting period. The new standard must be adopted using a modified retrospective transition method, with the cumulative effect recognized as of the date of initial adoption. We are currently reviewing this standard to assess the impact on our future consolidated financial statements.
In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which provides guidance with the intent of reducing diversity in practice in how certain cash receipts and cash payments are presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. ASU No. 2016-15 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years with early adoption permitted, including adoption in an interim period. We are currently reviewing this standard to assess the impact on our future consolidated financial statements.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326). This new standard changes the impairment model for most financial assets and certain other instruments. Entities will be required to use a model that will result in the earlier recognition of allowances for losses for trade and other receivables, held-to-maturity debt securities, loans, and other instruments. For available-for-sale debt securities with unrealized losses, the losses will be recognized as allowances rather than as reductions in the amortized cost of the securities. The new standard is effective for annual periods, and for interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted. We are currently reviewing this standard to assess the impact on our future consolidated financial statements.
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718), which amends the accounting for stock-based compensation and requires excess tax benefits and deficiencies to be recognized as a component of income tax expense rather than stockholders' equity. This guidance also requires excess tax benefits to be presented as an operating activity on the statement of cash flows and allows an entity to make an accounting policy election to either estimate expected forfeitures or to account for them as they occur. ASU No. 2016-09 is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, with early adoption permitted. The most significant impact of the pending adoption of this guidance on our future consolidated financial statements, will largely be dependent upon the intrinsic value of our stock-based compensation awards at the time of vesting and may result in more variability in our effective tax rates and net (loss) income, and may also impact the calculation of common stock equivalents, which are used in calculating diluted net income per share. In addition, upon adoption of the new guidance, we will classify excess tax benefits or deficits as operating activities in the consolidated statements of cash flows rather than as financing activities.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which will require lessees to recognize assets and liabilities for leases with lease terms of more than 12 months. Consistent with current GAAP, the recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee primarily will depend on its classification as a finance or operating lease. However, unlike current GAAP, which requires only capital leases to be recognized on the balance sheet, the new guidance will require both types of leases to be recognized on the balance sheet. The new guidance is effective for all periods beginning after December 15, 2018 and we are currently evaluating the effects that the adoption of ASU No. 2016-02 will have on our consolidated financial statements, but anticipate that the new guidance will significantly impact our consolidated financial statements given our significant number of leases.
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). ASU No. 2014-09 supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, and most industry-specific revenue recognition guidance throughout the Industry Topics of the Accounting Standards Codification. Additionally, this update supersedes some cost guidance included in Subtopic 605-35, Revenue Recognition-Construction-Type and Production-Type Contracts. The core principle of the guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. As originally issued, this guidance was effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and early adoption was not permitted. In July 2015, the FASB deferred the effective date by one year, to interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted, but not before the original effective date of December 15, 2016. The standard allows entities to apply the standard retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented (“full retrospective adoption”) or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the standard recognized at the date of initial application (“modified retrospective adoption”). We plan to adopt ASU No. 2014-09 on its effective date for us beginning April 1, 2018 and we are still evaluating both options and their effect on our financial statements and business.
We expect to identify similar performance obligations under ASC 606 as compared with deliverables and separate units of account previously identified. As a result, we expect the timing of our revenue to occur in similar periods but we are still evaluating this theory especially with respect to multiple service contracts. We are assessing the new standard’s requirement to apply a single method to measure progress towards satisfaction of performance obligations recognized over time in our contracts that contain multiple services. We are evaluating our multiple service contracts to determine if the services are a single performance obligation under this new standard requiring a single method of measurement. We are assessing the new standards requirement to allocate the transaction prices of our contracts based on the relative stand-alone selling price of each our performance obligations. We are evaluating the stand-alone

36



selling prices for our performance obligations. We are also assessing the new standard’s requirement to capitalize costs associated with obtaining customer contracts, including commission payments, which are currently expensed as incurred. We are evaluating the period over which to amortize these capitalized costs and the applicability of the practical expediency exception which permits the continuation of expensing these costs for amortization periods of one year or less. In addition, for sales transactions that have been billed, but for which the recognition of revenue has been deferred and the related account receivable has not been collected, we currently do not recognize deferred revenue or the related accounts receivable on our consolidated balance sheet. Under the new standard, we will record accounts receivable and related contract liabilities for non-cancelable contracts with customers when the right to consideration is unconditional, which we currently expect will result in increases in accounts receivable and contract liabilities (currently presented as deferred revenue) on our consolidated balance sheet, compared to our current presentation. We are continuing to review the impacts of adopting ASU No. 2014-09 to our consolidated financial statements and these preliminary assessments of the impacts to our consolidated financial statements are subject to change. We expect to conclude our assessments of the impacts of adoption sometime during our fourth quarter ending March 31, 2018.
Management continually evaluates the potential impact, if any, of all recent accounting pronouncements on our consolidated financial statements or related disclosures and, if significant, makes the appropriate disclosures required by such new accounting pronouncements.

Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

We have assets, liabilities, and cash flows in foreign currencies creating foreign exchange risk. We sell products and services internationally and enter into transactions denominated in foreign currencies. As a result, we are subject to the variability that arises from exchange rate movements. For the fiscal years 2017, 2016 and 2015, revenue from international operations was 6%, 4% and 5%, respectively of total revenue. The effects of foreign currency on operating results did not have a material impact on our results of operations for the 2017, 2016 and 2015 fiscal years. At March 31, 2017, a hypothetical 10% weakening of the U.S. dollar would not materially affect our financial statements.

We believe that inflation has had a nominal effect on our results of operations in fiscal years 2017, 2016 and 2015 and do not expect inflation to be a significant factor in fiscal 2017.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

Board of Directors and Shareholders
Agilysys, Inc.

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Agilysys, Inc. (an Ohio corporation) and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of March 31, 2017 and 2016, and the related consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive loss, changes in shareholders’ equity, and cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended March 31, 2017. Our audits of the basic consolidated financial statements included the financial statement schedule listed in the index appearing under Item 15(a)(2). These financial statements and financial statement schedule are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements and financial statement schedule based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Agilysys, Inc. and subsidiaries as of March 31, 2017 and 2016, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended March 31, 2017 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Also in our opinion, the related financial statement schedule, when considered in relation to the basic consolidated financial statements taken as a whole, presents fairly, in all material respects, the information set forth therein.

We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2017, based on criteria established in the 2013 Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO), and our report dated June 2, 2017 expressed an unqualified opinion.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

Board of Directors and Shareholders
Agilysys, Inc.

We have audited the internal control over financial reporting of Agilysys, Inc. (an Ohio corporation) and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of March 31, 2017 based on criteria established in the 2013 Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). The Company’s management is responsible for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting, included in the accompanying Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting based on our audit.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. Our audit included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk, and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

A company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

In our opinion, the Company maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2017, based on criteria established in the 2013 Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by COSO.

We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the consolidated financial statements of the Company as of and for the year ended March 31, 2017, and our report dated June 2, 2017 expressed an unqualified opinion on those financial statements.
