Factors to Note

Intuit’s third-quarter revenues are likely to reflect solid growth in the Online Ecosystem, driven by an expanding subscriber base for Quickbooks Online and ARPC. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for total Online Ecosystem revenues is pegged at $1.16 billion for the quarter under review, indicating a 68.1% increase from the prior year's reported figure. The consensus mark for Quickbooks Online revenues stands at $625 million, suggesting a 47.1% improvement year over year.

The gradual recovery in the Small Business and Self-Employed might have contributed to the top line during the quarter under review. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Small Business revenues in the quarter stands at $1.61 billion, which indicates a 43.1% year-over-year increase.

The growth in the TurboTax Live offering is likely to have been accretive to the Consumer tax business during the fiscal third quarter, driven by growing customer engagement. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the Consumer tax business’ revenues is pegged at $3.24 billion, suggesting growth of 14.3% year over year.

Revenues from the Credit Karma business (acquired in December 2020) are likely to have boosted overall sales during the third quarter. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Credit Karma revenues stands at $368 million. The business unit contributed $444 million to INTU’s second-quarter fiscal 2022 total revenues.

The solid momentum of the company’s leading product, QuickBooks Capital, and improving customer retention rates might have acted as tailwinds in the fiscal third quarter.

However, the transition of Desktop Ecosystem offerings into a subscription model is anticipated to have hurt the sales growth.
