Finally, some good news: Highlights from 2012 CFO Outlook Spring update!

CFOs warm on growth.  Senior financial executives have a considerably warmer view on corporate performance and theU.S. economy than they did just a few months ago—with 93% of CFOs now forecasting growth in 2012. 

 

Rising revenue, employment and prices.  64% of CFOs expect their revenues to rise, half project greater profits and 51% anticipate more hiring in 2012. 57% of companies will be raising prices on their products and services.

 

Oil prices and government fuel concern.  In terms of economic impact, CFOs are most concerned about oil prices (65%) and the effectiveness of government leaders (63%). Energy costs (51%) and healthcare costs (51%) are the leading corporate financial concerns.

 

Is sustainable growth ahead?  Whether renewed CFO optimism signals a temporary spring thaw or a blossoming upward trend depends on several factors, from rising oil prices and looming legislative rulings to the fall elections.
