 26.06.2009   Accenture pubblica i risultati finanziari del terzo trimestre 2009
 

Con il comunicato stampa di seguito allegato, Accenture ha reso noti i risultati finanziari per il terzo trimestre dell'anno fiscale 2009, che è terminato lo scorso 31 Marzo. In accordo al report della organizzazione statunitense, la recessione globale ha influito sul bilancio dell'azienda che tuttavia "è stata da un lato in grado di minimizzare gli effetti della crisi e dall'altro ha lavorato per il futuro", come afferma a William D. Green, chairman & CEO di Accenture.

Più in dettaglio, il fatturato, pari a 5.5 miliardi di dollari, si è mantenuto in linea con le aspettative ed ha mostrato un calo di circa il 4% nelle valute locali rispetti allo stesso periodo dello scorso FY. Gli utili diluiti per azione sono stati pari a 0.68 dollari mentre quelli lordi, ovvero senza la deduzione degli interessi e delle tasse, sono stati pari a 732 milioni di dollari, manifestando quindi un calo del 15% a causa del cambio sfavorevole.



NEW YORK; June 25, 2009 - Accenture (NYSE: ACN) reported financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2009, ended May 31, 2009, with net revenues of $5.15 billion, in line with the company’s guided range. Net revenues declined 16 percent in U.S. dollars and 4 percent in local currency compared with the third quarter last year, reflecting a foreign-exchange impact of negative 12 percent. Diluted earnings per share were $0.68. Operating income was $732 million, a decrease of 15 percent, primarily due to significant negative foreign-exchange impact, while operating margin expanded 10 basis points, to 14.2 percent.

New bookings for the quarter were $6.57 billion, with consulting bookings of $3.21 billion and outsourcing bookings of $3.36 billion, bringing new bookings for the first three quarters of fiscal 2009 to $18.36 billion. William D. Green, Accenture’s chairman & CEO, said, “In the third quarter we delivered strong overall results, considering the difficult economic environment. Our people have raised their game on behalf of our clients, our company and our shareholders. While we were challenged in terms of top-line growth, revenues were within our guided range, and we delivered operating income of $732 million, expanded operating margin to 14.2 percent and delivered solid earnings per share. In addition, our significant new bookings show momentum even in this economic headwind, and we continue to generate very strong cash flow.

“We are managing our business with tremendous discipline and are staying focused on helping clients adapt to their changing needs. We have continued making important investments to take advantage of future growth opportunities and market rebound. We remain well-positioned to deliver outstanding value to our clients and our shareholders.”

Financial Review
Revenues before reimbursements (“net revenues”) for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 were $5.15 billion, compared with $6.10 billion in the third quarter of fiscal 2008, a decrease of 16 percent in U.S. dollars and 4 percent in local currency. Net revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 reflect a foreign-exchange impact of negative 12 percent.

  • Consulting net revenues for the quarter were $2.95 billion, a decrease of 20 percent in U.S. dollars and 9 percent in local currency compared with the third quarter of fiscal 2008.
  • Outsourcing net revenues were $2.19 billion, a decrease of 9 percent in U.S. dollars and an increase of 3 percent in local currency compared with the third quarter of fiscal 2008.
Diluted EPS for the quarter were $0.68, compared with $0.74 in the third quarter last year, a decrease of $0.06, broken down as follows:
  • a $0.03 increase from a lower share count;
  • a $0.02 increase from a lower effective income tax rate compared with the rate in the third quarter last year;
offset by:
  • a $0.02 decrease from lower revenue and operating income in local currency; and
  • a $0.09 decrease from unfavorable foreign-exchange rates compared with the third quarter last year.
Operating income for the third quarter decreased 15 percent, to $732 million, or 14.2 percent of net revenues, compared with $862 million, or 14.1 percent of net revenues, for the third quarter of fiscal 2008. This reflects an operating-margin expansion of 10 basis points. Gross margin (gross profit as a percentage of net revenues) was 32.5 percent, compared with 31.5 percent for the third quarter last year, an expansion of 100 basis points. The increase was driven by improved overall outsourcing contract profitability.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the third quarter were $935 million, or 18.2 percent of net revenues, compared with $1,056 million, or 17.3 percent of net revenues, for the third quarter last year. The increase in SG&A as a percentage of net revenues was due to higher selling costs as a percentage of net revenues and to general and administrative costs declining at a lower rate than that of net revenues.

The company’s effective tax rate for the third quarter was 28.2 percent. This compares with an effective tax rate of 30.8 percent for the third quarter last year. The lower tax rate in the third quarter this year was primarily a result of final determinations of prior-year tax liabilities recorded in the quarter. Income before minority interest for the third quarter was $537 million, compared with $608 million for the same period of fiscal 2008, a decrease of 12 percent.

Operating cash flow for the third quarter was $1,015 million, and property and equipment additions were $44 million. Free cash flow, defined as operating cash flow net of property and equipment additions, was $971 million. For the same period last fiscal year, operating cash flow was $1,080 million; property and equipment additions were $66 million; and free cash flow was $1,014 million.

Accenture’s total cash balance at May 31, 2009, was $4.00 billion, compared with $3.60 billion at Aug. 31, 2008. Days services outstanding, or DSOs, were 34 at May 31, 2009, compared with 37 at Aug. 31, 2008.

Utilization for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 was 83 percent, compared with 85 percent in the same quarter last year. Attrition for the quarter was 8 percent on an annualized basis, compared with 16 percent in the third quarter last year.

New Bookings
New bookings for the third quarter were $6.57 billion. This reflects a negative 13 percent foreign-currency impact when compared with new bookings in the third quarter last year.
  • Consulting new bookings were $3.21 billion, or 49 percent of total new bookings.
  • Outsourcing new bookings were $3.36 billion, or 51 percent of total new bookings.
