Revenue in the quarter rose 26% over the third quarter of 2004 to $123.0 million. Operating income grew 38% over the year-ago period to $30.4 million. Net income in the quarter rose to $101.1 million, compared to $13.6 million in the prior year's third quarter. Diluted earnings per share for the quarter grew to $1.07, compared to $0.15 in the prior year's third quarter.
Net income and diluted earnings per share for the third quarter increased significantly when compared to the same quarter in 2004 due in part to the recording of a net income tax benefit of $80.6 million, or $0.85 per diluted share, primarily related to the reversal of the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets associated with net operating loss and deferred interest carryforwards.
For the first nine months of 2005, revenue was $350.5 million, which represented growth of 28% over the same period in 2004. Year-to-date operating income grew 47% to $92.7 million. Net income for the first nine months of 2005 rose to $143.2 million, compared to $38.6 million for the same period in 2004. Year-to-date diluted earnings per share increased to $1.52, compared to $0.42 for the first nine months of 2004. The increases in year- to-date net income and diluted earnings per share were also affected by the reversal of the valuation allowance in the third quarter.
"We are pleased with the progress we achieved in the third quarter and we are encouraged by the trends we see in the marketplace this year," said Judson Green, President and Chief Executive Officer of NAVTEQ. "Consumer interest in GPS technology is surging in 2005 and we are proud to be enabling so many of the products and services being created by our customers."
Revenue from NAVTEQ's European operations totaled $77.2 million in the quarter, up 13% from $68.3 million in the third quarter of 2004. North American revenue was $42.7 million in the quarter, a 45% increase over the $29.5 million posted in the third quarter of 2004.
Cash and marketable securities totaled $159.0 million at September 25, 2005. Net cash provided by operating activities for the first nine months of 2005 was $77.5 million.
