Forrester Research Reports Third-Quarter Financial Results

Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR) today announced its 2012 third-quarter financial results.

Third-Quarter Financial Performance
  • Total revenues were $68.5 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared with $69.8 million for the third quarter of last year. Research revenues increased 2%, and advisory services and other revenue decreased 11% compared to the third quarter of last year. The decline in advisory services and other revenue during the third quarter 2012 is due to both a planned shift of a number of Forrester Events from being held during the current quarter to being held during the fourth quarter and a decrease in advisory services revenue.
  • On a GAAP basis, net income was $10.4 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012, compared with net income of $5.7 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the same period last year. Net income in 2012 includes a $5.5 million deferred tax benefit resulting from the settlement of a foreign tax audit.
  • On a pro forma basis, net income was $5.8 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012, which reflects a pro forma effective tax rate of 39%. Pro forma net income excludes stock-based compensation of $1.4 million, amortization of $0.6 million of acquisition-related intangible assets, and net investment gains of $0.1 million. This compares with pro forma net income of $7.9 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the same period in 2011, which reflects a pro forma tax rate of 40%. Pro forma net income for the third quarter of 2011 excludes stock-based compensation of $1.4 million, amortization of $0.7 million of acquisition-related intangible assets, $0.9 million of duplicate lease costs, and $0.1 million of acquisition and integration costs.

“Forrester met our revenue guidance and exceeded operating margin and earnings per share for the third quarter,” said George F. Colony, Forrester’s chairman and chief executive officer. “However, we expect the softness we experienced in our consulting business in the third quarter, related to both lower-than-expected productivity and the macroeconomic environment, to continue and therefore are reducing revenue and EPS guidance for the year.”
