Lexmark Abandons CRM Project

Share this content:
Lexmark International Inc., Lexington, CT, a developer, manufacturer and supplier of printing solutions, is taking a $15.8 million charge to write off an abandoned software project, the company said yesterday.

It involved an Oracle customer relationship management project, according to reports. The company would not give further information about the project or why it was abandoned until it formally reports third-quarter results Oct. 21.

The news was part of an earnings release the company published yesteday that said it had better-than-expected earnings. The printer maker expects to report a 4 percent to 5 percent rise in third-quarter revenue compared with a year ago.

The charge will knock 9 cents a share off Lexmark's bottom line, but the company still expects to post earnings of 68 cents to 70 cents per share, up from 52 cents per share a year ago. The company had earlier predicted earnings of 58 cents to 68 cents per share.

For the fourth quarter, Lexmark said it sees revenue growing in the low- to mid-single digits compared with a year ago with earnings per share of 67 cents to 77 cents.
