Sapiens reports Q3 EPS 21c, consensus 18c
Reports Q3 revenue $82.6M, consensus $81.69M. "The third quarter demonstrated continued execution of Sapiens' 2019 priorities: top-line growth and margin expansion. Non-GAAP revenue increased 12.8%, primarily due to continued expansion in our property & casualty (P&C) divisions, and initial growth in our life & annuity (L&A) division," said Roni Al-Dor, president and CEO, Sapiens. "A global focus on Sapiens' key objectives to leverage our offshore capabilities, along with improved economies of scale, drove a non-GAAP operating margin improvement of 240 basis points. The increase in operating income has fueled continued expansion of Sapiens' product, sales and delivery teams, all of which are key to building next year's pipeline and supporting our capacity to deliver current projects. Sapiens is confident we have built a platform that can support long term top-line growth, with the infrastructure to cost-effectively support our long-term profitability." Continued Al-Dor: "I'm encouraged by our pipeline of business and anticipated growth for the remainder of 2019. Following the acquisition of Calculo, we are increasing our full-year, non-GAAP revenue to a range of $323 - $325 million, from a previous guidance of revenues on the higher end of $318-$323 million. The increase in revenue and the leverage from improved economies of scale allow Sapiens to increase the guidance for full-year, non-GAAP operating margin in the range of 15.8%-16.0%, compared to our previous guidance of 15.6%-15.8%."
