12:28 EDTDBD, NCR, PAYNCR Corp. plummets after guidance lowered
Shares of payment solutions company NCR Corp. (NCR) are sinking after the firm’s third quarter forecasts missed analysts’ consensus estimates and it lowered its outlook for fiscal 2014. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, NCR Corp. forecast Q3 EPS of 67c and revenue of $1.647B, below analysts' consensus estimates of 71c and $1.66B, respectively. Q3 free cash flow is seen at $132M, which includes the previously announced recovery of $93M related to the Fox River environmental matter. The company cited a challenging retail market as well as difficult global macroeconomic conditions, including foreign currency headwinds, for the weak outlook. WHAT'S NOTABLE: NCR Corp. lowered its FY14 EPS view to $2.60-$2.70 from $3.00-$3.10, compared to consensus of $3.00. It also cut its FY14 revenue outlook to $6.575B- $6.625B from $6.75B-$6.85B, versus consensus of $6.74B. The company said, “While we are disappointed by these results, our Financial Services business remains a bright spot, Q3 free cash flow improvement was strong, and our previously announced restructuring program is on track to deliver annual run-rate savings of approximately $90M by 2016. While we continue to be faced with challenging and uncertain market dynamics, we remain confident in the actions we are taking to address these challenges, including strengthening our Retail Solutions team and talent, as well as utilizing our restructuring program to allocate more resources to our highest growth, highest margin opportunities to drive long-term profitable growth.” PRICE ACTION: In afternoon trading, NCR Corp. fell $6.43, or about 21.5%, to $23.45 on nearly five times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week low of $23.32. Including today's pull back, the shares have lost approximately 41% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the payment solutions business include VeriFone Systems (PAY) and Diebold (DBD).
