SAP præsterer det bedste Q2 nogensinde
København, d. 24. juli 2012 – SAP offentliggør i dag de økonomiske resultater for Q2, der afslører det bedste resultat nogensinde for andet kvartal. Det er især salget af software, som overstiger en rekordindtjening på 1 mia. euro, der har drevet succesen i årets andet kvartal, men også en stadig stigende efterspørgslen efter SAP’s nye kategorier af kerneydelser.
Q2 i hovedtal:
- Softwaresalget er øget med 26 pct. til 1,059 mio. euro
- Stærk vækst i de nye kategorier af innovative kerneydelser: SAP HANA bidrager med 85 mio. euro, Mobile med 54 mio. euro og Cloud med 69 mio. euro
- Salget af non-IFRS software og software-relaterede services er steget med 21 pct. til 3.14 mia. euro
- Driftsindtjeningen, non-IFRS, er steget med 15 pct. til 1.17 mia. euro
SAP i Norden er i høj grad medvirkende til den store vækst:
”SAP i Norden oplever i øjeblikket fremgang – med afsæt i et meget stærkt Q1, fortsatte vi med at vokse ekstraordinært i Norden og Baltikum i Q2. Flere og flere eksisterende kunder ønsker at drage fordel af nyskabelserne på tværs af alle vores løsninger og integrere business analytics, in-memory og mobility. Men vi er samtidig meget glade for at se så mange nye kunder, som investerer i SAP platforme og løsninger, fordi det giver dem mulighed for at transformere og styrke deres samlede forretning”, siger Jan Thorell, Vice President SAP Nordic & Baltics.

WALLDORF, Germany, July 24, 2012 – SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.
BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS IN THE SECOND QUARTER
SAP achieved record software revenue in the second quarter, exceeding €1 billion. All regions posted double-digit software revenue gains. Demand for SAP’s new innovation categories continued to accelerate: Cloud momentum continued with a 112% increase year-on-year in 12 month new and upsell subscription billings for SuccessFactors on a stand-alone basis. SAP’s strong combination with SuccessFactors is allowing the company to accelerate its strategy to become the leading cloud provider.
SAP recorded €85 million in SAP HANA revenue putting the company on track to meet full-year expectations of at least €320 million. Mobile revenue was €54 million and keeps SAP on track to meet full-year expectations of €220 million. SAP also saw significant traction in strategic industries, with financial services and retail both growing more than 60 percent in software revenue, and solid growth across the manufacturing sectors, which grew more than 20 percent in software revenue.
“Our customer-focused innovation strategy is delivering exceptional business value for our customers and driving record results for SAP in an uncertain macro-economic environment,” said SAP Co-CEOs Bill McDermott and Jim Hagemann Snabe. “SAP stands apart in its ability to bring its customers innovations in cloud, mobile and in-memory computing on top of a proven, consistent and stable core. We will continue to provide game-changing solutions and remain on track to achieve our 2015 goals.”
“We reached the upper end of our second quarter software revenue guidance range and were at the mid-point of the software and software-related service revenue guidance range,” said Werner Brandt, CFO of SAP. “With this momentum in the first half of 2012 and our focused commitment to operational excellence we are on track to deliver on our targets for the full-year 2012 – in line with our 2015 goals”.
SAP reiterates the following outlook for the full-year 2012:
- The Company expects full-year 2012 non-IFRS software and software-related service revenue to increase in a range of 10% – 12% at constant currencies (2011: €11.35 billion). This includes a contribution of up to 2 percentage points from SuccessFactors’ business.
- The Company expects full-year 2012 non-IFRS operating profit to be in a range of €5.05 billion – €5.25 billion at constant currencies (2011: €4.71 billion). Full-year 2012 non-IFRS operating profit excluding SuccessFactors is expected to be in a similar range.
- The Company projects a full-year 2012 IFRS effective tax rate of 26.5% – 27.5% (2011: 27.9%) and a non-IFRS effective tax rate of 27.0% – 28.0% (2011: 26.6%).
