ACI Worldwide, Inc. Reports Financial Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2009

ACI Reaffirms its Annual Guidance on Sales, Revenue and Operating Income

Wednesday, May 06, 2009

“As we anticipated, we achieved performance that was typical of the seasonality of the first quarter and in line with our expectations. Even while we successfully hired seasoned services, product and strategy leaders across our business geographies, we also achieved a quarterly run rate reduction of $4 million in payroll expenses which are reflected in our results. On the sales side, we are equally encouraged by visibility into a strong pipeline for the second quarter that, at present, appears to exceed last year’s sales performance figures -that’s part of the reason that we’re comfortable re-affirming annual guidance,” said Chief Executive Officer Philip Heasley.
