Intuit Profit Jumps on TurboTax Demand

Tuesday, 20 May 2014 06:17 PM

Intuit Inc. reported a 20 percent jump in quarterly profit as demand rose for its tax-preparation software TurboTax during the delayed tax filing season.

However, the company also cut its fourth-quarter revenue and profit outlook. The company said it now expects a loss of 10-12 cents per share on revenue of $683 million-$713 million for its seasonally weak fourth quarter.

Intuit had previously forecast a loss of 2-4 cents per share on revenue of $710 million to $720 million.

The Mountain View, California-based company earns most of its profit in its second and third quarters when people are more likely to buy its software in the lead-up to the tax season.

The company had to rely heavily on its third quarter to boost its overall earnings this year due to the delayed start to the tax-filing season.

Net income rose to $984 million, or $3.39 per share, in the third quarter ended April 30 from $822 million, or $2.71 per share, a year earlier.

Revenue rose about 14 percent to $2.39 billion.

Intuit said sales of TurboTax units grew 10 percent to 27.8 million units, led by a 14 percent growth of TurboTax Online.
