“Steady execution during the third quarter resulted in solid financial results keeping us on track to deliver in line with our full year financial and business objectives,” said Bill Nuti, chairman and CEO of NCR. “Our focus on driving transformative change in how consumers and businesses interact and transact is resonating, supported by strong customer response to innovations such as our Scalable Deposit Module and APTRA™ Interactive Teller in Financial Services and the NCR Silver transaction platform for smaller retailers. As we continue to drive accelerated revenue growth we are also improving our profitability profile by expanding our higher margin global services business and increasing contributions from software and SAAS offerings. Finally, we announced in the quarter phase two of our pension management strategy, which we expect will strengthen our ability to deliver enhanced shareholder returns.”
