Tyler Technologies (TYL) to Report Q2 Earnings: What to Expect?

Tyler Technologies TYL is slated to report second-quarter 2020 results on Jul 29.

During its first-quarter earnings call, the company had suspended the guidance for full-year 2020 on uncertainties related to the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on the economy.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings is pegged at $1.16, suggesting a year-over-year decline of 10.8%. Further, the consensus mark for revenues is pinned at $284.2 million, calling for an increase of 0.8% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.

In the trailing four quarters, Tyler’s earnings have matched the Zacks Consensus Estimate on three occasions and missed in one, the average negative surprise being 0.2%.

In the last reported quarter, Tyler’s non-GAAP earnings of $1.25 per share missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by a penny. Moreover, revenues of $276.8 million missed the consensus mark of $282 million.

Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to the upcoming announcement.

Key Factors

Tyler’s second-quarter performance is likely to have been negatively impacted by economic and business disruptions due to the coronavirus crisis. During the first-quarter earnings release, the company had stated that the pandemic would affect its second-quarter performance.

Delays in procurement processes and lengthening sales cycles, as public sector entities are now more focused on pandemic-related issues, might have hurt its revenues in the quarter under review. The company expects lower services revenues in the quarter as some projects were delayed on client unavailability and billable travel was reduced.

Further, roughly $6 million of revenues under hardware and other revenues might have been eliminated in the second quarter as a result of cancellation of the company’s Connect conference.

Additionally, increased investments in sales and marketing, and research and developments are likely to have weighed on its bottom line.
