Heartland Payment Systems Hosts Investor Day

Heartland Payment Systems®, Inc. (NYSE: HPY), one of the nation’s largest payments processors, today announced at its Investor Day meeting that the Company now expects to achieve a full year 2012 operating margin of at least 20%, which will result in full year GAAP earnings per share of at least $1.56 given the current expectation of between $540 and $545 million in net revenue.

Bob Baldwin, Vice Chairman, in announcing the new guidance, said, “Our drive to improve the operating leverage in our business is producing excellent results, and we are pleased to announce our expectation that we will achieve a full year 2012 operating margin of at least 20% on net revenue, representing a 380 basis point improvement over the 2011 operating margin. Based on our previously announced expectations of between $540 and $545 million in net revenue this year, the 20% full year operating margin should generate full year GAAP earnings per share of at least $1.56. Our goal over the next five years is to achieve a 25% operating margin and to double the size of our business as articulated in the plans and strategy outlined at today’s meeting.”
