Pitney Bowes Announces Third Quarter Results For 2012

2012 Annual Guidance

This guidance discusses future results which are inherently subject to unforeseen risks and developments. As such, discussions about the business outlook should be read in the context of an uncertain future, as well as the risk factors identified in the safe harbor language at the end of this release and as more fully outlined in the Company's 2011 Form 10-K Annual Report and other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Company is reaffirming its 2012 revenue, adjusted EPS and cash flow guidance for the year, and is updating its GAAP EPS guidance. Based on results to date and expectations for the fourth quarter, the Company anticipates:

  • 2012 revenue, excluding the impacts of currency, to remain in a range of flat to a decline of 4 percent when compared to 2011;
  • Adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations to be in the range of $1.95 to $2.15;
  • GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations to be in the range of $1.78 to $2.08; and
  • Free cash flow to be in the range of $750 million to $850 million.

The Company’s efforts to further streamline the business and reduce its cost structure will result in a pre-tax restructuring charge in the fourth quarter that is expected to be in the range of $40 million to $60 million and is anticipated to generate annualized savings in the range of $45 million to $55 million. The updated GAAP earnings per share guidance reflects the goodwill and asset impairment charges of $0.09 per share related to the recent performance of the International Mail Services business that was recorded during the quarter, and the anticipated restructuring charge in the range of $0.15 to $0.25 per share that will be recorded in the fourth quarter.
