Pitney Bowes Announces Third Quarter Results For 2012

The company continues to make progress with its Volly™ service and has now signed 60 large third-party mail service providers who will offer the Volly secure digital mail service to 6,500 companies and consumer brands. As it continues to work with billers and develop its software, the company has decided to add to and enhance its technology to provide additional capabilities that will improve the onboarding process for billers. This will result in improving the scalability of the service and facilitating biller density. Therefore, the company has determined that Volly’s long-term value will be enhanced by deferring its availability to consumers until 2013.

EBIT improved when compared to the prior year due to the growth of revenue and cost reduction initiatives in the U.S. and Europe, offset by continued investment in Volly. Excluding the investment in Volly, EBIT margin would have been approximately 540 basis points higher this quarter.

  3Q 2012   Y-O-Y Change   Change ex Currency
Revenue $ 89 million (19%) (18%)
EBIT   $ 1 million   (94%)    

Given the overall slowdown in the global market, Software has experienced a reduction in the number of large license deals compared with the prior year. Additionally, revenue was impacted by the continued austerity measures in the public sector globally.
