Teradata second quarter revenue up 14 percent to $665 million

Telecom Lead America: Teradata Corporation has
reported 14 percent increase in revenue to $665 million for the
quarter ended June 30, 2012 from $581 million in the second
quarter of 2011.


Teradata’s Q2 net income grew marginally to $112 million
from $103 million in the second quarter of 2011.


Gross margin of 57.4 percent was up from the 54.4 percent
reported in the second quarter of 2011.  The increase in gross margin was
driven by leverage from revenue growth as well as a favorable product and
services revenue mix.


Mike Koehler, president and chief executive officer of
Teradata Corporation, said the company delivered another strong quarter in Q2
with revenue growth of 18 percent in constant currency, and Non-GAAP EPS growth
of 28 percent.


Teradata said strong execution across the company led to
20 percent constant currency revenue growth in the first half of 2012 and
record operating margin. Its technology expertise in data
warehousing, big data analytics and integrated marketing management
positioned Teradata to help customers realize the greatest value from their
information assets, while enabling them to reduce infrastructure costs.


Teradata generated $398 million of revenue in
its Americas region, up 17 percent from $339 million in the second
quarter of 2011.


Revenue in Teradata’s EMEA region was $168 million,
up 16 percent from $145 million generated in the second quarter of
2011.


Teradata generated $99 million of revenue in
its APJ region, a 2 percent increase from $97 million in the second
quarter of 2011.


Second-quarter operating income of $160
million increased from $110 million reported in the second
quarter of 2011.  Higher revenue as well as favorable product and
services revenue mix more than offset the increased investment in selling
expense and research and development.
