BROOKFIELD, Wis. (8/1/12)--Fiserv Inc., a financial services technology firm, said Tuesday that its net income jumped 79% in the second quarter, buoyed by revenue growth and a charge that cut into net income a year ago.
Fiserv reported net income of $161 million, or $1.17 a share, in the quarter ended June 30. That compares with net income of $90 million, or 62 cents, in the second quarter of 2011. Last year's second quarter included a $61 million charge related to debt retirement.
Revenue increased 3.4% from the same time a year ago to $1.1 billion from $1.065 billion.
Fiserv also released its speaker and agenda details for Fiserv Forum--Fall 2012, its annual credit union client conference, to be held Sept. 10-13 in Las Vegas.
Speakers include Fareed Zakaria, journalist, author and global thinker; Pranav Mistry, a visionary inventor who pushes the boundaries of technology and design; and a special guest speaker on Sept. 11 to recognize the significance of that day in U.S. history.
