Pitney Bowes Announces Full Year 2014 and Fourth Quarter Financial Results

North America Mailing

The Company has continued to focus on driving productivity improvements in its expanded inside sales organization. As a result, revenue declined less than 4 percent on a constant currency basis, representing a lesser rate than in the second and third quarters. The direct sales organization delivered higher productivity, which resulted in an increased average order value. Recurring revenue streams also continued to stabilize due to a further moderation in the decline of financing and rentals revenue. EBIT margin declined versus the prior year due to the mix of business and fewer lease extensions than the prior year.

International Mailing

Revenue declined 15 percent on a reported basis and 9 percent on a constant currency basis. Revenue declined just 2 percent when the impacts of the divested revenues in Europe earlier in the year are also excluded from the prior year. These results were in-line with recent trends and the Company’s efforts to stabilize overall mail-related revenue. The Company was able to achieve these results despite the uncertain macro-economic environment, particularly in Europe. Also, excluding the impact of the divested revenues in Europe and currency, supplies revenue continued to grow, which was offset by a moderate decline in equipment sales. EBIT margin improved versus the prior year due to the benefits from the changes in go-to-market, including the actions taken in the third quarter, as well as other cost reduction initiatives.
