IBM shares rose 3% in extended trading on Tuesday after the technology services company issued first-quarter results that beat expectations.

Here’s how the company did:
  • Earnings: $1.40 per share, adjusted, vs. $1.38 per share as expected by analysts, according to Refinitiv.
  • Revenue: $14.2 billion, vs. $13.85 billion as expected by analysts, according to Refinitiv.

Revenue in the period rose 7.7% from a year earlier, IBM said in a statement. This is the company’s first full quarter without the managed infrastructure services business it spun off into an entity called Kyndryl. Sales to Kyndryl added 5 percentage points to revenue growth in the quarter. But Kyndryl won’t be delivering growth after October, CEO Arvind Krishna said on a call with analysts.
