Prior Q1 2011 Financial Results
When Rackspace reports Q2 2011, the 3 months ended June, financial results on August 4, Rackspace should meet or beat various Q1 2011 results. These financial results are charted on the Rackspace Financial Performance page. Rackspace for Q1 2011, the 3 months ended March, financial results were:
Total Revenues $230.00M
Operating Income $23.98M
Net Income $13.82M
Earnings per Share $0.10
Gross Profit Margin 69.68%
Operating Income Margin 10.43%
Net Income Margin 6.01%

Rackspace Q2 2011 financial results should meet and exceed Q1 2011 in some areas. The analysts' average Earnings Per Share estimate for Q1 is $0.12, which is a +20% increase from Q1 EPS of $0.10. This appears a very positive estimate and would be a multi-year, if not all-time, high. The analysts' average Total Revenues of $241.19M is also a very positive estimate and would be an all-time high. For Q2 2011, Rackspace should beat Q1 2011 on Total Revenues, Operating Income, Net Income, and Earnings per Share. Any misses will be a disappointment. Rackspace should be close to, and perhaps beat, Gross Profit Margin, Operating Income Margin, and Net Income Margin. Any beat on margins would result in greater performance. The detailed quarter by quarter charts are on the Rackspace Financial Performance page.
