Since IBM spun off its managed infrastructure group into Kyndryl Holdings Inc. (NYSE: KD) in October 2021, the new company’s shares are down by about 65%. Over the same period, IBM stock has added 10%. Last month, Kyndryl confirmed that it is laying off staff in an effort to reduce costs, and last week, a former Kyndryl employee filed a lawsuit against the company alleging age discrimination. The lawsuit makes the claim that Kyndryl, like IBM, continues a policy of firing long-tenured and high-salaried employees. The company reports earnings after markets close Tuesday.

Analysts expect Kyndryl to report fiscal fourth-quarter revenue of $4.15 billion, which would be down 3.5% sequentially and about 6.3% year over year. Analysts have also forecast a loss per share of $0.44, down from earnings per share (EPS) of $0.12 in the prior quarter and better than a loss per share of $0.54 in the year-ago quarter. For the full 2023 fiscal year ending in March, Kyndryl’s loss per share is forecast at $1.47, compared to last year’s loss of $1.26 per share, on sales of $16.92 billion, down 8.7% year over year.

The company is not expected to post a profit until fiscal 2025. Revenue is expected to decline slightly to $16.48 billion by 2025, and the enterprise value-to-sales ratio is 0.3.
