    Lexmark Climbs 12% as Profit Forecast
    Tops Estimates

    LEXMARK
    STOCKS UP 12% ON STRONG Q4

     Feb. 2010–
    Lexmark International Inc., the second-largest U.S. printer maker,
    advanced the most in three months in New York trading after forecasting
    first-quarter profit that beat analysts’ estimates.Excluding some items,
    earnings will be at least 80 cents a share, the company said today.
    That compares with the 62-cent average of estimates compiled by
    Bloomberg. Earnings last quarter equaled $1.16, also beating
    predictions.

    Fourth-quarter revenue topped analysts’ projections
    at $1.07 billion, which the company attributed to new products. Chief
    Executive Officer Paul Curlander has squeezed more out of sales by
    closing factories in Mexico and trimming payrolls, cutting more than
    $200 million in expenses last year.Net income in the fourth quarter more
    than tripled to $59.8 million, or 76 cents a share, from $18.1 million,
    or 23 cents, a year earlier.Lexmark, based in Lexington, Kentucky, rose
    $3.21, or 12 percent, to $30.01 in New York Stock Exchange composite
    trading at 4 p.m. The gain was the largest since Oct. 20.
