The Dayton, Ohio, maker of computer systems cited strong cost control and an unexpected revenue surge for the gains. NCR said it expects second-quarter operating income of around 35 cents a share, well ahead of the 18-cent Thomson First Call consensus estimate.

The company said revenue will rise about 6% from a year ago to around $1.44 billion. Wall Street had been expecting revenue of $1.4 billion.

"NCR's Teradata Data Warehousing and Financial Self-Service businesses both generated second-quarter year-over-year revenue growth well ahead of expectations," the company said Monday. "NCR's second-quarter revenue growth included 3 percentage points from foreign currency fluctuations."

NCR shares closed up $4.79, or 10.2%, to $51.81.
