As we enter fiscal 2012, we have the strongest client base in our history, and we will remain focused on reducing our clients’ total cost of ownership, accelerating their time-to-market and improving their customer experience.”
Ranjan Kalia, Chief Financial Officer, said: “The fourth quarter was a strong finish to a fiscal year in which we achieved revenue, operating profit and EPS growth, each in excess of 30 per cent,”
Kalia added, “Our current fiscal year 2012 guidance calls for Virtusa to continue to exceed industry growth rates and realise ongoing operating margin expansion.”
Virtusa management provided the following current financial guidance:
First quarter fiscal 2012 revenue is expected to be in the range of $59.6 to $61.6 million, with diluted EPS of $0.16 to $0.20.
Fiscal year 2012 revenue is expected to be in the range of $252 to $266 million, with diluted EPS of $0.78 to $0.94.
The company’s first quarter and fiscal year 2012 diluted EPS estimates assume an average share count of approximately 25.2 million and 25.4 million respectively, (assuming no further exercises of stock-based awards) and assume a stock price of $18.11, which was derived from the average closing price of the company’s stock over the five trading days ended on 10 May 2011. Deviations from this stock price may cause actual EPS to vary based on share dilution from Virtusa’s stock options and stock appreciation rights.
