Cimpress's Earnings Outlook


Cimpress (NASDAQ:CMPR) announces its next round of earnings this Wednesday, April 28. Here is Benzinga's look at Cimpress's Q3 earnings report.

Net Income, Earnings, And Earnings Per Share

Earnings and especially earnings per share (EPS) are useful measures of a company's profitability. Total earnings, which is also referred to as net income, equals total revenue minus total expenses. EPS equals to net income divided by the number of shares outstanding.

Earnings And Revenue

Sell-side analysts are expecting Cimpress's loss per share to be near $0.52 on sales of $526.92 million. In the same quarter last year, Cimpress announced EPS of $0.61 on revenue of $597.96 million.

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.

The Wall Street consensus estimate for earnings would represent a 185.25% decrease for the company. Sales would be down 11.88% from the same quarter last year. Cimpress's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past like this:

Quarter Q2 2021 Q1 2020 Q4 2020 Q3 2020
EPS Estimate 2.82 0.35 -1.24 0.77
EPS Actual 1.22 -0.41 -1.62 0.61
