TNS, Inc. (NYSE: TNS), a leading provider of business-critical, cost-effective data communications services for transaction-oriented applications, today reported its second quarter 2012 results.
Henry H. Graham, Jr., CEO, commented, “Second quarter 2012 revenue was slightly below our outlook while adjusted earnings achieved the midpoint of our outlook range. However, there are a number of factors affecting our business that have caused us to reduce our 2012 outlook and take decisive action. These factors fall into three categories: the global economy and its effect on transaction volumes and on the financial services industry; timing changes in the recording of revenue and in the launching of mobile applications products; and areas of challenge, particularly in the Telecommunication Services Division, that we have already begun to address. We are now making changes to our management structure to better navigate the transitions in our business and more effectively sell into our markets. TNS’ suite of network, gateway and applications solutions remains very well positioned across the payments, fraud and mobile markets. We are focused for the remainder of the year on realizing the opportunity of our product investments, continuing to manage our costs and growing earnings. We are confident in our ability to achieve annual adjusted earnings increases going forward while we manage these transitions and gain further traction in growth services.”
