CSC reports profit growth

But sales are down for the first quarter.

Outsourcer CSC posted positive results for its first fiscal 2009 quarter, helped by lower costs and a tax benefit.

The firm reported an increase in earnings of 7.6 percent year-on-year, with net income growth of 5.5 percent to US$133 million (AU$158m). However, quarterly sales dropped 12.4 percent to US$3.9 billion (AU$4.6 billion).

Expenses and costs also decreased by 13 percent to US$3.71 billion (AU$4.41 billion), according to the IT services company, which also said full-year revenue should reach US$16 billion to US$16.5 billion (approximately AU$19 billion).

“We experienced another strong quarter of earnings improvement while also meeting or exceeding our other key financial targets for the quarter,” said chief executive Michael Laphen.

CSC said that strategic improvements over the period included the acquisition of bankrupt Brazilian consulting firm BearingPoint, a cloud computing alliance with Microsoft and increased focus in cyber security.
