Computer Associates (CA) said on Thursday that it expects to report record revenues and earnings for its first fiscal quarter on 28 May.
It anticipates generating sales of approximately $1.63 billion, up 11 per cent over last year, on earnings per share of $0.83, two cents more than the latest consensus estimate from First Call.
Sanjay Kumar, president and chief operating officer, said: "As exemplified by our continued strength across all our businesses, CA is stronger than ever before." He added that revenues from professional services were up 121 per cent to about $93 million on the year ago period.
A month ago, CA announced it would acquire Platinum Technology for about $3.5 billion. The deal is still awaiting regulatory approval.
