NCR reported first quarter revenue of $1.18 billion, a 19% increase over 1Q/07 and net income $49 million compared to loss of $9 million in the year ago quarter. NCR has changed its financial reporting from global business units to reporting on a geographic basis. Revenue growth in the Americas region of 15% was driven primarily by sales growth to financial institutions and retailers. In the Europe-Middle East-Africa region, revenues increased 30% as every major country experienced revenue growth. NCR experienced 7% revenue growth in the Asia-Pacific-Japan region. During the first quarter NCR began the worldwide rollout of its “SelfServ” ATM family; introduced the “FastLane Self-Return” solution; and extended its self-service portfolio into the digital media market with “Xpress Entertainment.” NCR now expects 2008 year-over-year revenue growth of 5% to 7% from continuing operations, up from previously provided guidance of 3% to 5% revenue growth.
