Earlier this week, SunGard reported a 9% rise in quarterly earnings for the first quarter of 2003 compared with a year ago. But overall internal revenue, which excludes acquired businesses, remained flat in the quarter and decreased 4% in its investment support systems division.
Cristóbal Conde, president and chief executive of SunGard, reiterated that the company's outlook for 2003 is to aim for diluted net income per share in the range of $1.24 to $1.29. He said this prediction assumed neither a rebound nor a further deterioration in demand.
