Acxiom

(ACXM)

said Monday it met Wall Street's earnings expectations for the fiscal third quarter.

The information management software company, which is based in Little Rock, Ark., earned 34 cents for the quarter, up from 29 cents in the year-ago period. Eleven analysts polled by

First Call/Thomson Financial

were calling for the company to earn 34 cents in the quarter.

Revenue rose to $279.5 million from $244.3 million in the same period last year.

The company continues to expect that revenue growth for the remainder of the fiscal year will be at least 25% above fiscal 2000 after adjusting for divested operations and any unusual levels of sales of computer equipment associated with delivering data warehouse software. Acxiom also expects AbiliTec revenue to total $90 million to $125 million for the year.
