Sapiens (NASDAQ: SPNS) reported Q1 EPS of $0.27, in-line with the analyst estimate of $0.27. Revenue for the quarter came in at $110.2 million versus the consensus estimate of $109.39 million.

"Our revenue growth in the first quarter validates our strategy of building global diversity with a broad business portfolio, which provides the foundation for Sapiens' performance and growth. Solid execution in the first quarter delivered 22% non-GAAP revenue growth, with non-GAAP revenues reaching a record $110 million and non-GAAP operating margin increasing to 17.2% from 16.1%. Our growth in the first quarter originated primarily from Europe and Rest-of-the-World. Operating a global company across multiple insurance markets and deploying a diversified product offering allows us to balance our growth, resources, investments, and risks across regions and markets. With a strategic focus and the increasing global market demand for digital insurance solutions and transformations, Sapiens is well positioned for continued financial performance," said Roni Al-Dor, Sapiens president and CEO.

"We are increasing our 2021 revenue guidance to a range of $459 to $464 million from our prior range of $457 to $463 million. We are also updating our operating profit margin guidance, due to our plan initiated this quarter to manage our growth and investment in delivery capabilities in the North American P&C CoreSuite business, and following the recent spike in COVID-19 in India, which will increase our labor costs in the short term. As a result of these two factors, operating margin in 2021 is expected to be in the range of 17.0% to 17.4%, compared to the previous range of 17.7% to 18.0%. I would like to highlight that Sapiens remains committed to increasing its profitability and margins, as we have done year after year."
