A Preview Of Diebold Nixdorf's Earnings


Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE:DBD) will be releasing its next round of earnings this Wednesday, February 10. For all of the relevant information, here is your guide for Wednesday's Q4 earnings announcement.

What Are Earnings, Net Income, And Earnings Per Share?

Earnings and EPS are useful metrics of profitability. Total earnings also known as net income is equal to total revenue minus total expenses. Dividing net income by the total number of shares outstanding yields EPS.

Earnings And Revenue

Analysts predict Diebold Nixdorf will report earnings of $0.36 per share on revenue of $1.07 billion. Diebold Nixdorf reported a profit of $0.47 per share when it published results during the same quarter last year. Sales in that period totaled $1.15 billion.

What Are Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises, And Why Do They Matter?

Wall Street analysts who study this company will publish analyst estimates of revenue and EPS. The averages of all analyst EPS and revenue estimates are called the "consensus estimates"; these consensus estimates can have a significant effect on a company's performance during an earnings release. When a company posts earnings or revenue above or below a consensus estimate, it has posted an "earnings surprise", which can really move a stock depending on the difference between actual and estimated values.

If the company were to match the consensus estimate when it reports Wednesday, earnings would be down 23.4%. Revenue would be down 7.12% from the year-ago period. Here is how the company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020 Q4 2020
EPS Estimate 0.27 0.01 -0.28 0.50
EPS Actual 0.28 0.38 -0.34 0.47
Revenue Estimate 931.00 M 830.33 M 915.67 M 1.16 B
Revenue Actual 995.20 M 890.50 M 910.70 M 1.15 B
