Open Text profit beats estimates on cloud services

(Reuters) - Canadian business software company Open Text Corp’s OTC.TO (OTEX.O) adjusted quarterly profit handily beat estimates, helped by strength in its cloud services business.

But net income fell to $19.4 million, or 33 cents per share, in the first quarter, from $35 million, or 60 cents per share, a year earlier.

    The company, whose partners include Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) and Oracle Corp ORCL.O, earned $1.31 per share on an adjusted basis.

    Revenue rose 13 percent to $326.2 million.

    Analysts on average had expected a profit of $1.17 per share on revenue of $334.3 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
