Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. Price and EPS Surprise
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues in the to-be-reported quarter is pegged at $1.21 billion, which indicates a 14.5% increase from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure. Expected growth is likely to have been driven by internal growth (mutual fund and ETF record growth), new businesses, increased equity position, capital markets, higher volume of customer communications (driven by new sales and growth in digital), and impact of the Itiviti acquisition.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for net revenues in the Global Technology and Operations segment is pegged at $361 million, which indicates a year-over-year increase of 19.5%. The consensus estimate for net revenues at Investor Communication Solutions is pegged at $846 million, which suggests a year-over-year increase of 7.9%.
The bottom line in the to-be-reported quarter is likely to have benefited from operating strength. The consensus mark for earnings is pegged at 81 cents per share, which suggests a year-over-year increase of 11%.
