Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), the global technology platform that makes TurboTax, QuickBooks, Mint, Credit Karma and Mailchimp, today reiterated full fiscal year 2022 revenue guidance. Revenue for its second fiscal quarter is expected to be lower than previous guidance due to a slower forming tax season.
Intuit expects to report second quarter revenue at an all-time high for both the Small Business and Self-Employed Group and Credit Karma. The company plans to report GAAP and non-GAAP results for the second quarter and refresh its previously issued full year guidance on February 24, 2022 after completing the purchase price allocation for the acquisition of Mailchimp, which closed on November 1, 2021. Mailchimp is the largest transaction in the company’s history.
"We continue to see strong momentum across the company with Small Business and Credit Karma expected to deliver record high revenues for the quarter with tax on track to deliver full year fiscal 2022 revenue guidance,” said Sasan Goodarzi, Intuit’s chief executive officer. “We remain confident that our innovations will transform the assisted category and will accelerate growth in underpenetrated segments.”
The company expects to report full GAAP and non-GAAP results for the second quarter on February 24. Reflecting the slow forming tax season, the company now expects to report the following for the second fiscal quarter ended January 31:
- Revenue of $2.660 billion to $2.665 billion, down from the prior range of $2.719 billion to $2.749 billion.
- Small Business & Self-Employed revenue of $1.575 billion to $1.580 billion, up from $1.078 billion the prior year.
- Credit Karma revenue of $435 million to $440 million.
- Consumer Group revenue of $405 million to $410 million, up from $147 million the prior year.
- ProConnect revenue of $230 million to $235 million, up from $207 million the prior year.
The company expects full year revenue results for Intuit and all business segments to be in line with its guidance issued on November 18, 2021. For fiscal year 2022, the company continues to expect:
- Revenue of $12.165 billion to $12.300 billion, growth of approximately 26 to 28 percent, including Mailchimp as of November 1 and a full year of Credit Karma.
- Excluding Mailchimp, revenue growth of 18 to 20 percent.
