Cut's labor cost and with increasing bankruptcy cases this software will help speed the process through the lawyers office as well as the court system by making the whole bankruptcy thing more efficient. They have other products for the legal industry as well.

2ndQ Earnings: 60M in "deferred revenue"?? Thanks a lot EPIQ for the earnings bomb. But plenty of people must have known - shares dropped like a bomb since Friday. After-hours down 5% tonite - about 15% drop in 3 or 4 days...

How did these guys who've been driving down the stock before earnings know??

EPIQ is carrying a lot of debt for their size, but they have been able to deploy this cash infusion successfully.

Profit and Operating margins are healthy, as well as ROA and ROE. They are showing a PE around 14.75 as I write this, which is well within value territory.

SG&A has been rising as a percentage of revenue but many businesses seem to cycle a little high then low, so Im not particularly worried.

Overall a solid company that I expect will make a good showing and drive their PE up into 30's or 40's in a few short years.

EPIQ Systems Inc. (EPIQ) is a provider of technology-based solutions for the legal and fiduciary services industries in the US. The company's products and services assist clients with the administration of complex legal proceedings, including electronic litigation discovery, bankruptcy administration and class action administration.

EPIQ conducts its business through two segments namely Case Management and Document Management. Case Management provides clients with integrated technology-based products and services for the automation of various administrative tasks. Document Management, deals in providing technology and production, services to ensure timely, accurate and complete execution of the many documents associated with multi-faceted legal cases and communications applications. The company's clients include law firms, corporate legal departments, bankruptcy trustees and other professional advisors.

However, the total bankruptcy filings as on September 30, 2006 stood at 1,112,542 down by 37.6% from September 30, 2005, which were 1,782,643. If these filings dip further, it could affect the company’s top-line. However, the company’s growth oriented strategies and unique product specifications will help it survive the drop in the filings. Further, in the recent months EPIQ recruited new sales and client relationship executives in New York, London, Chicago, Los Angeles, and northern California and opened a full-service office of its electronic discovery business in Los Angeles. This move of the company signals that the management believes that still a lot of markets are unexplored possessing huge potential for its offerings.

Recently, the company’s wholly owned subsidiary EPIQ Advisory Services Inc. acquired the claims preference business of Gazes LLC for a total value of $13.8 million. This acquisition will facilitate EPIQ eliminating competition to some extent and give a boost to its case management service. On the back of growth-oriented strategies the stock is a good buy at current levels.

Management and accounting irregularities are very suspicious. Cannot count on anything good here.

I won't lie -- I'm a little bitter that Matrix waited until the day after I finally gave up on these clowns (in real life and in CAPS) before upgrading them from 'strong sell' to 'strong buy,' but I'm happy at least to take advantage of that temporary 5% spike for my thumbs-down pick here.

Overpromising and underdelivering is not the road to riches (at least not for outside shareholders...it seems to be working out pretty well for EPIQ's management).
