Informatica Slips on Revenue Miss

Updated from April 20

Informatica ( INFA) beat first-quarter earnings estimates Tuesday by a penny, but a 12% year-over-year jump in revenue fell just shy of expectations.

Recently, the stock was down 82 cents, or 9.3%, to $8.02.

Under generally accepted accounting principles, Redwood City, Calif.-based Informatica reported net income of $1.9 million, or 2 cents a share, in the first quarter, which ended March 31. That compared with net income of $1 million, or a penny a share, in the same period a year earlier.

Informatica, which makes business intelligence software, posted first-quarter pro forma earnings of $3.2 million, or 4 cents a share, up from $1.4 million, or 2 cents a share, a year earlier.

Revenue rose 12% to $54.2 million from $48.4 million a year earlier. License revenue jumped 8.7% from a year ago to $24.9 million.

Wall Street analysts expected Informatica to earn pro forma net income of 3 cents a share on $55.1 million in revenue in the first quarter, according to Thomson First Call.

Looking forward, Informatica said it expects to earn 3 cents to 5 cents a share, excluding charges, in the second quarter on revenue ranging from $55 million to $59 million. That straddles the consensus estimate forecasting Informatica would earn 4 cents a share on $57.4 million in revenue.

The company maintained its guidance for the full year calling for pro forma earnings of 16 cents to 20 cents a share on $230 million to $240 million -- with a bias toward the higher end of the earnings range. Analyst estimates call for earnings at 20 cents a share on $235.2 million in revenue.
