Pitney Bowes Announces First Quarter 2013 Results

Worldwide Production Mail

    1Q 2013     Y-O-Y Change     Change ex Currency
Revenue $119 million 3% 4%
EBIT     $3 million     10%      

Production Mail revenue benefited from the installation of some large production print orders and there continues to be a higher quarter-end backlog than in the prior year. The Company also recognized its initial license revenue associated with the delivery of Volly™ software to Australia Post. EBIT benefited from the growth in revenue, offset by the higher mix of production printers that have lower margins than inserter products. The continued investment in Volly also impacted EBIT margin. Excluding the net investments associated with Volly, the EBIT margin would have been approximately 400 basis points higher.


    1Q 2013     Y-O-Y Change     Change ex Currency
Revenue $81 million (20%) (19%)
EBIT     $5 million     (54%)      

Software revenue and EBIT declined compared to the prior year due primarily to fewer large dollar licensing deals and the delay in some deal signings, particularly in the Americas. Prior year results benefitted from a large multi-year licensing agreement with Facebook for global location intelligence applications. During the quarter, weakness continued in the European and Asian operations due to on-going austerity measures in the public sector. EBIT was unfavorably impacted by the decline in licensing revenue. Despite the revenue decline, the Company continued to invest in product development to drive future growth.
