LEXINGTON, Ky. April 24, 2012

  • In-line revenue and EPS
  • Strong gross profit margin, a first quarter record
  • $44 million
  • Acquisitions strengthening Lexmark’s position as an end-to-end solutions provider

Lexmark International, Inc. (NYSE: LXK) today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2012.

Paul Rooke

"The addition of our compelling new line of smart devices for the mid-range color workgroup segment, and the acquisition of three more software companies further positions Lexmark as a key provider of business solutions.  Adding Brainware, ISYS and Nolij to our company enables us to integrate new content and process management technologies into our solutions portfolio," said Rooke. "We also remain committed to returning more than 50 percent of free cash flow, on average, to shareholders through share repurchase and a quarterly dividend consistent with our capital allocation framework."

Hardware revenue and supplies revenue declined 9 percent and 4 percent, respectively. Software and Other revenue grew 10 percent, or 6 percent excluding acquisition-related adjustments. Core(1) revenue, which principally includes laser and business inkjet hardware and supplies, managed print services and software, grew 1 percent year to year while Legacy(1) revenue, which includes consumer inkjet hardware and supplies that the company is exiting, declined 34 percent. Lexmark’s focus continues to be on growing the company’s Core, as Legacy, which in the first quarter of 2012 represented about 11 percent of Lexmark’s revenue, continues to become a less significant portion of the company’s revenue mix.
