Intuit Fiscal 2007 Revenue Grows 17 Percent

Fourth-Quarter Revenue Increases 31 Percent Over Prior Year

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Aug. 22, 2007 - Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU) today announced strong results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2007, which ended July 31.

"We are very pleased with the results of our fourth quarter and fiscal year," said Steve Bennett, Intuit's president and chief executive officer. "All of our businesses performed very well. We posted another year of double-digit revenue and earnings growth and we feel great about our position as we enter fiscal 2008."

Fiscal 2007 Financial Highlights
  • Revenue of $2.67 billion increased 17 percent from fiscal 2006. Growth was driven by strong performance in Intuit's two largest growth engines, Small Business and Tax, and the acquisition of Digital Insight in February 2007.
  • GAAP (General Accepted Accounting Principles) operating income from continuing operations of $637.6 million, up 13 percent from fiscal 2006.
  • GAAP net income of $440 million, up 6 percent from fiscal 2006. This represents diluted earnings per share, or EPS, of $1.24, up 7 percent from fiscal 2006.
  • Non-GAAP operating income of $764.8 million, up 17 percent from fiscal 2006 and non-GAAP diluted EPS of $1.43, up 18 percent from fiscal 2006.
Fiscal 2007 Business Segment Results

  • Professional Tax revenue was $291.8 million, up 7 percent over fiscal 2006.
  • Financial Institutions revenue was $150.4 million and includes the results of Digital Insight, which was acquired on Feb. 6, 2007.

Fourth-Quarter 2007 Highlights

  • GAAP operating loss from continuing operations of $56.7 million compared with a GAAP operating loss from continuing operations of $56.9 million in the year-ago quarter. Intuit typically posts a seasonal loss in its fourth quarter when it has little revenue from its tax businesses but expenses remain relatively constant. On a non-GAAP basis, Intuit had an operating loss of $17.3 million versus a non-GAAP operating loss of $37.8 million in the year-ago quarter.
  • GAAP net loss of $13.6 million compared with a GAAP net loss of $18.9 million in the year-ago quarter. This represents a net loss of $0.04 per share versus a net loss of $0.06 per share in the year-ago quarter. These results include a gain of $31 million from the sale of outsourced payroll assets.
  • Non-GAAP net loss of $7.4 million compared with a non-GAAP net loss of $11.4 million in the year ago quarter. This represents a non-GAAP net loss per share of $0.02 versus a non-GAAP net loss per share of $0.03 in the year-ago quarter.

  • GAAP diluted EPS of $1.41 to $1.43, or year-over-year growth of 14 percent to 15 percent. On a non-GAAP basis, diluted EPS is expected to be $1.59 to $1.61, or year-over-year growth of 11 percent to 13 percent.

Cautions About Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including forecasts of Intuit's expected financial results; its prospects for the business in fiscal 2008 and beyond; and all of the statements under the headings "Forward-Looking Guidance for Fiscal 2008," "Fiscal 2008 Business Segment Guidance" and "First Quarter 2008 Guidance."

Because these forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, there are important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, without limitation, the following: product introductions and price competition from our competitors can have unpredictable negative effects on our revenue, profitability and market position; governmental encroachment in our tax businesses or other governmental activities regulating the filing of tax returns could negatively affect our operating results and market position; we may not be able to successfully introduce new products and services to meet our growth and profitability objectives, and current and future products and services may not adequately address customer needs and may not achieve broad market acceptance, which could harm our operating results and financial condition; any failure to maintain reliable and responsive service levels for our offerings could cause us to lose customers and negatively impact our revenues and profitability; any significant product quality problems or delays in our products could harm our revenue, earnings and reputation; our participation in the Free File Alliance may result in lost revenue opportunities and cannibalization of our traditional paid franchise; any failure to properly use and protect personal customer information could harm our revenue, earnings and reputation; our acquisition activities may be disruptive to Intuit and may not result in expected benefits; our use of significant amounts of debt to finance acquisitions or other activities could harm our financial condition and results of operations; our revenue and earnings are highly seasonal and the timing of our revenue between quarters is difficult to predict, which may cause significant quarterly fluctuations in our financial results; predicting tax-related revenues is challenging due to the heavy concentration of activity in a short time period; we have implemented, and are continuing to upgrade, new information systems and any problems with these new systems could interfere with our ability to ship and deliver products and gather information to effectively manage our business; our financial position may not make repurchasing shares advisable or we may issue additional shares in an acquisition causing our number of outstanding shares to grow; and litigation involving intellectual property, antitrust, shareholder and other matters may increase our costs. More details about these and other risks that may impact our business are included in our Form 10-K for fiscal 2006 and in our other SEC filings.
