Tyler Technologies (TYL) has highlighted updates regarding its 2021 guidance. Tyler provides integrated information management solutions and services to the public sector.
The company said the new forecasts include the impact of the NIC Inc. acquisition that was completed on April 21.
Following the announcement, the shares of the company rose 1.1% to close at $407.55 on June 7.
For 2021, Tyler expects GAAP total revenue to be between $1.507 – $1.537 billion and non-GAAP revenue in the range of $1.510 – $1.540 billion.
Adjusted earnings per share are expected to be in the $6.65 to $6.77 range. Meanwhile, GAAP diluted earnings per share are likely to be in the range of $3.58 to $3.74, which could vary due to the impact of stock incentive awards, the company said.
Tyler CEO Lynn Moore said, “Our guidance reflects a strong year-to-date performance and improving market activity for Tyler.”
“As we noted previously, the NIC acquisition is expected to be significantly accretive to non-GAAP earnings per share and EBITDA. As we continue to work together with the NIC leadership team to identify and prioritize opportunities, we are emboldened by the potential to accelerate long-term growth in both of our businesses and expand our platform for connected communities,” Moore added.
