Intuit is likely to continue penetrating the huge market for SMB financial management software via new subscriber additions across existing as well as new geographies. Rising attach rates to payroll and payments solutions could also boost growth, Nemeroff stated.

Intuit’s FY16 revenues and EPS are estimated at $4.56 billion and $3.48, respectively. The company’s revenues and EPS are expected to increase to $5.02 billion and $4.25, respectively, in FY17.
