Vistaprint Q2 Net Income Drops; Lowers Guidance
Fiscal 2013 Outlook as of January 31, 2013:
Ernst Teunissen, executive vice president and chief financial officer, said, “Looking ahead to the second half of the fiscal year, we expect to continue to benefit from solid execution in North America and strong manufacturing results around the world. We continue to believe that our European marketing execution turn-around will take time, and our revenue weakness there will persist through at least the remainder of fiscal 2013. Given our continuing challenges in Europe, we expect that the shift from a strong seasonal consumer focus in our second fiscal quarter to small-business-oriented campaigns for the second half of the fiscal year will be more difficult than it has been in past years. Despite continued revenue weakness, we remain confident in our earnings per share outlook for the remainder of the year. Our guidance today reflects these factors. We are lowering and narrowing our revenue guidance range for the fiscal year, but narrowing our earnings per share guidance range to the upper part of the prior guidance range due to our strong earnings performance through the first half of the year.”
Financial Guidance as of January 31, 2013:
As previously stated, beginning with fiscal year 2013, the company is providing revenue guidance on an annual and quarterly basis, and earnings guidance on an annual basis. Based on current and anticipated levels of demand, the company expects the following financial results:
Fiscal Year and Third Quarter 2013 Revenue
- For the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, the company expects revenue of approximately $1,145 million to $1,175 million, or 12 percent to 15 percent growth year over year in reported terms. Excluding currency movements and acquired revenue, we expect constant-currency organic growth of approximately 10 percent to 13 percent. Reported (USD) growth expectations assume a recent 30-day currency exchange rate for all currencies. Constant-currency growth is estimated by applying the respective prior year quarterly average exchange rates to all estimated non-U.S. dollar denominated revenue expected for future periods.
- For the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, ending March 31, 2013, the company expects revenue of approximately $275 million to $290 million, or 7 percent to 13 percent growth year over year in reported terms. We expect constant-currency organic growth of approximately 5 percent to 11 percent.
