SAP Q2 Profit Rises; Lifts FY Outlook - Quick Facts

SAP SE (SAP) reported that its second-quarter profit after tax rose 64% to 1.45 billion euros from 885 million euros in the previous year.

Earnings per Basic share increased 57% year-over-year to 1.15 euros and increased 50% to 1.75 euros on non-IFRS basis reflecting another outstanding contribution from Sapphire Ventures.

But operating profit declined 23% year-over-year to 984 million euros, due to higher share-based compensation expenses primarily related to Qualtrics.

Total revenue for the quarter declined 1 % to 6.67 billion euros from 6.74 billion euros in the prior year.

SAP raised its full-year 2021 outlook, reflecting the strong business performance which is expected to accelerate cloud revenue growth. The company continues to expect a software licenses revenue decline for the full year as more customers turn to the 'RISE with SAP' subscription offering for their mission-critical core processes.

SAP now expects annual operating profit, at constant currencies, to be in the range of 7.95 billion euros - 8.25 billion euros, flat to down 4% at constant currencies. The previous range was 7.8 billion euros - 8.2 billion euros at constant currencies.
