Monday, May 03, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Vistaprint N.V., the company that provides high-impact personalized products and services for small businesses and the home, today announced financial results for the three month period ended March 31, 2010, the third quarter of its 2010 fiscal year.

"Vistaprint delivered strong third quarter revenue in line with our guidance," said Robert Keane, president and chief executive officer. "Our earnings performance exceeded our expectations due to strong gross margins and lower than anticipated expenses during the quarter. We continued to execute toward our accelerated investment plans for the fiscal year, although the timing of some of our investments has shifted into the fourth quarter. We are pleased with our results and believe that we remain well positioned to continue to drive competitive advantage and deliver strong financial results for years to come."

Financial Metrics:
- Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal year 2010 grew to $166.0 million, a 30 percent increase over revenue of $127.5 million reported in the same quarter a year ago. Excluding the estimated impact from currency exchange rate fluctuations, total revenue grew 25 percent from the third quarter a year ago. Excluding the termination of membership programs which generated 3.9 percent of total revenue in the third quarter of 2009, but 0 percent of total revenue in the third quarter of 2010, constant currency revenue growth was 30 percent year over year.
- Gross margin (revenue minus the cost of revenue as a percent of total revenue) in the third quarter was 64.1 percent, compared to 63.5 percent in the same quarter a year ago.

- Capital expenditures in the third quarter were $22.9 million, or 13.8 percent of revenue.

Operating Metrics:

During the quarter, Vistaprint broadened its product offering with ladies' t-shirts, luggage tags, folded business cards, consumer websites, and recycled paper options for business cards and postcards. Additionally, the company launched the Vistaprint Visa(R) Business credit card, a joint offering in partnership with U.S. Bank that enables eligible Vistaprint customers to personalize credit card designs to match graphic images used in their marketing materials.

"With just one quarter left in fiscal 2010, we remain confident in our ability to achieve our targets," said Mike Giannetto, chief financial officer. "Our plan to accelerate long-term growth investments is still on track for the remainder of the fiscal year, and in fact, we expect to be able to make additional investments in the fourth quarter and still meet our targets. As we have done in prior quarters, we are updating our guidance to reflect recent currency movements, which have historically impacted revenue more than earnings due to some natural hedging in our operating cost structure. Therefore, we are narrowing our full-year revenue guidance toward the low-end of the previously stated range, and narrowing our EPS guidance around the mid-point of the previously stated range."

Based on current and anticipated levels of demand, the company expects the following financial results:
