11:24 EDTINTUIntuit plummets after Q1, FY16 outlooks trail estimates
Shares of tax preparation software provider Intuit (INTU) are sinking after the company's first quarter and fiscal 2016 outlooks significantly trailed analyst's consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: After the close on Thursday, Intuit reported fourth quarter adjusted earnings per share of (5c) and revenue of $696M, compared to analysts' consensus estimates of (12c) and $738.98M, respectively. In the U.S., TurboTax Online units increased 11% and total TurboTax units grew 7%, excluding the Free File Alliance, the company said. Additionally, Intuit said it reached 1.075M QuickBooks Online subscribers through the end of Q4 and increased total QuickBooks online subscribers by 57% for the year. Brad Smith, Intuit's president and Chief Executive Officer said the company closed out fiscal year 2015 "on a strong note," adding that the company's small business momentum "continues to build and our QuickBooks Online ecosystem growth is accelerating." Looking ahead, Intuit said it expects Q1 adjusted EPS of (4c)-(3c) and revenue of $660M-$680M, well below analysts' consensus estimates of of 6c and $776.36M, respectively. For FY16, the company expects adjusted EPS of $3.40-$3.45 and revenue of $4.53B-$4.6B, far short of the consensus of $3.82 and $5.04B, respectively. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In its earnings release, Intuit announced its intent to divest Demandforce, QuickBase and Quicken. The divestment will help Intuit "focus on and invest in businesses that strengthen the ecosystem and align with two strategic goals: to be the operating system behind small business success, and to do the nations' taxes in the U.S. and Canada," the company said. As a result of the decision, the company said FY16 adjusted EPS will be reduced by about 10c and revenue will be reduced by approximately $250M, as the company reports these assets as discontinued operations. Separately, Intuit raised its dividend for the first quarter by 20% to 30c per share, payable on October 19. ANALYST REACTION: First Analysis analyst James Macdonald downgraded Intuit this morning to Underweight from Equal Weight. Macdonald said Intuit's small business online ecosystem has "relatively low monetization." PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Intuit fell $10.80, or 10.41%, to $92.23 on more than twice its average daily trading volume. Despite today's pull back, the shares have gained approximately 5% over the past year. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the tax preparation space include Liberty Tax (TAX), up 0.16%, and H & R Block (HRB), down 1.5%.
