Intuit Announces Second-Quarter Revenue of $763M In Line with Expectations
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - Feb. 22, 2007 - Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU) today announced its second-quarter 2007 revenue increased 3 percent year-over-year to $763 million, in line with expectations. For the first six months of the fiscal year, the company reported revenue growth of 8 percent.

Growth in the quarter was driven by strong sales in Consumer Tax, which were up 18 percent over the year-ago period, and Payroll and Payments segment, which was up 15 percent year-over-year. This growth was offset partly by revenue shifts in QuickBooks and Pro Tax, which moved about $45 million in revenue from the second quarter to the first and third quarters, compared to last year.

"We are pleased with the early results of TurboTax and the continued strength in our Payroll and Payments segment," said Steve Bennett, Intuit's president and chief executive officer. "We are also excited by the recent acquisition of Digital Insight, which will provide a third platform for growth as we go forward."

Second-Quarter 2007 Financial Highlights
Intuit posted GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) diluted net income of $145 million in the quarter versus diluted net income of $183 million in the second quarter of 2006. This represents diluted net income of $0.40 per share versus diluted net income of $0.50 per share in the year-ago quarter. Second quarter 2006 results included $28 million, or 7 cents per share, from discontinued operations. Intuit posted non-GAAP diluted net income of $161 million, or $0.45 per share versus $174 million, or $0.48 per share in the second quarter of 2006.

Second-Quarter 2007 Business Segment Results
  • QuickBooks second quarter revenue was $164 million. The earlier launch of QuickBooks 2007 versus QuickBooks 2006 shifted about $20 million of revenue from the second quarter to the first quarter. Year-to-date QuickBooks revenue was up 5 percent.
  • Payroll and Payments revenue of $138 million was up 15 percent compared to the second quarter of 2006.
  • Consumer Tax revenue was $226 million, up 18 percent year-over-year.
  • Professional Tax revenue was $131 million, down 13 percent as a result of changes in product offerings, which deferred approximately $25 million to the third quarter.
  • Other Businesses revenue of $105 million was up 1 percent.
Forward-looking Guidance
Forward-looking guidance has been adjusted to reflect the acquisition of Digital Insight, the disposition of certain fully outsourced payroll assets, and a lower effective tax rate. For fiscal 2007 Intuit now expects:

  • Revenue of $2.625 billion to $2.675 billion, representing annual growth of 12 to 14 percent.
  • GAAP operating income of $585 million to $611 million, and non-GAAP operating income of $725 million to $751 million.
  • GAAP diluted earnings per share, or EPS, of $1.10 to $1.14, and non-GAAP diluted EPS of $1.33 to $1.37.
Intuit also adjusted its previously given third quarter, fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2007 guidance for revenue and earnings per share, details of which are available on Intuit's Web site at www.intuit.com/about_intuit/investors/earnings/2007.

Cautions About Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements, including forecasts of Intuit's expected financial results; its prospects for the business in fiscal 2007 and beyond; expectations of future growth, including growth of the Digital Insight business; and all of the statements under the heading "Forward-Looking Guidance."

Because these forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, there are important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, without limitation, the following: product introductions and price competition from our competitors can have unpredictable negative effects on our revenue, profitability and market position; governmental encroachment in our tax businesses or other governmental activities regulating the filing of tax returns could negatively effect our operating results and market position; we may not be able to successfully introduce new products and services to meet our growth and profitability objectives, and current and future products and services may not adequately address customer needs and may not achieve broad market acceptance, which could harm our operating results and financial condition; any failure to maintain reliable and responsive service levels for our offerings could cause us to lose customers and negatively impact our revenues and profitability; any significant product quality problems or delays in our products could harm our revenue, earnings and reputation; our participation in the Free File Alliance may result in lost revenue opportunities and cannibalization of our traditional paid franchise; any failure to properly use and protect personal customer information could harm our revenue, earnings and reputation; our acquisition activities may be disruptive to Intuit and may not result in expected benefits; our use of significant amounts of debt to finance acquisitions or other activities could harm our financial condition and results of operations; our revenue and earnings are highly seasonal and the timing of our revenue between quarters is difficult to predict, which may cause significant quarterly fluctuations in our financial results; predicting tax-related revenues is challenging due to the heavy concentration of activity in a short time period; we have implemented, and are continuing to upgrade, new information systems and any problems with these new systems could interfere with our ability to ship and deliver products and gather information to effectively manage our business; our financial position may not make repurchasing shares advisable or we may issue additional shares in an acquisition causing our number of outstanding shares to grow; and litigation involving intellectual property, antitrust, shareholder and other matters may increase our costs. More details about these and other risks that may impact our business are included in our Form 10-K for fiscal 2006 and in our other SEC filings.
