Shares of Informatica (INFA, $36.50), a provider of data-integration solutions,
today jumped 9.8% on heavy volume (nearly 4x average daily volume) after the
company came in with better than expected Q4 results and issued solid Q1 guidance.

For the December quarter, the company reported EPS of 41 cents, four cents above
the consensus estimate, on revenue of $234.7 million, vs. the consensus of $217.2
million.
Sales execution in the U.S. and Europe showed a nice improvement following two
awful quarters. Informatica closed 142 deals worth more than $300,000 each and
26 deals valued at more than $1 million.

For Q1, Informatica sees EPS of 29 cents to 32 cents (the consensus is 31 cents) on
revenue of $196 million to $206 million (the consensus is $197.1 million).

Credit goes out to Nomura Securities for its savvy upgrade of Informatica shares to
‘Buy’ in early October when the stock was trading around $27.50.
