Client retention, however, was slightly down for the year to date. ADP, however, has reduced its forecast saying that there will be less wage and bonus growth than previously anticipated. ADP expects revenue for 2012 will be 7 percent to 9 percent higher than in 2011 with about a 7 percent-rise in employer services revenue.
Net income for the second quarter was $375 million, up from $310 million a year earlier. Revenue reached $2.6 million, compared to $2.4 billion in last year's corresponding period. Revenue for payroll services was $2.1 billion in the period just ended, an increase of 6.9 percent from the year earlier $1.9 billion.
Rodriguez pointed to growth in the Run platform, which is replacing the older EasyPay system, as a factor in increased revenue. ADP has also focused on "being "able to attach additional products and services" as one of the key strategies for Run.Last modified on Sunday, 02 June 2013
