Financial software firm Intuit (INTU) late Tuesday edged Wall Street’s earnings target on in-line sales for its fiscal third quarter. It also guided higher for the current quarter. Intuit stock rose in extended trading.
The Mountain View, Calif.-based company earned an adjusted $6.07 a share on sales of $4.17 billion in the quarter ended April 30. Analysts expected Intuit earnings of $6.04 a share on sales of $4.17 billion, according to Zacks Investment Research. In the year-earlier period, Intuit earnings were $4.49 a share on sales of $3.0 billion.
On May 11, Intuit warned that revenue and operating income for its fiscal third quarter would be lower than expected due to the extension of the IRS tax filing deadline to May 17. For the second year in a row, the Internal Revenue Service delayed the tax filing deadline because of disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Intuit makes TurboTax tax preparation software as well as QuickBooks, Mint and Credit Karma products.
