ACI Worldwide, Inc., a leading international provider of payment systems, today announced financial results for the period ended December 31, 2010.
2010 was a year in which ACI began to accelerate along its profitability curve. We achieved solid growth in revenue over the prior year and extraordinary growth in sales as customers purchased global or multi-country product offerings. Critically, we achieved a 260 basis point improvement in operating income profitability. Our 60-month backlog of committed and renewable client bookings continues to grow nicely and we anticipate another good year in 2011, characterized by continued progress on global account deals, better products with faster and improved services implementations and more incremental growth in profitability and EBITDA margin, said Chief Executive Officer Philip Heasley.
