Lexmark reports strong quarter

Lexmark had an extremely profitable quarter. "For its second quarter, Lexmark said it earned $85 million, or $1.07 a share, on $1.03 billion in revenue, compared with a profit of $17 million, or 22 cents a share, on sales of almost $905 million in the same period a year ago."

Now, Lexmark only acquired document imaging ISV Perceptive in May, so we're not certain how much this contributed to the strong quarter, ended June 30, but it is a good sign that Lexmark's business plan seems to be working....and Perceptive is certainly part of that business plan.

According to press release: "Lexmark said its results were spurred on by strong sales of printing hardware and supplies, as well as managed-print services for business customers." In the MFP world, document imaging seems to fall fairly close to the MPS initiatives, so, as I said, this is a good sign for Perceptive and our market I think.
