BERLIN (Reuters) – Business software company SAP (SAPG.DE) pre-released a strong set of third-quarter results early on Friday, lifted by a major cloud-computing deal, and reaffirmed its guidance for double-digit growth this year.
Growth in new cloud bookings more than doubled in the third quarter to 38%, lifted by the three-year deal with an unnamed partner, the Walldorf, Germany-based company said. Margins also expanded.
