WNS (Holdings) Limited Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter Ended December 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal Year Ending March 31, 2015

WNS (Holdings) Limited reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of $136.0 million against $127.1 million a year ago. Operating profit was $20.1 million against $14.4 million a year ago. Profit before income taxes was $22.8 million against $16.1 million a year ago. Profit was $16.5 million against $12.2 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were $0.31 against $0.23 a year ago. Non-GAAP (excluding amortization of intangible assets and share-based compensation expense) adjusted operating profit was $28.7 million compared to $22.0 million a year ago. Adjusted net income was $25.1 million compared to $19.8 million a year ago. Adjusted diluted net income per ADS were $0.47, compared to $0.38 in third quarter of last year. In the third quarter, the company generated $28.1 million in cash from operations, reduced debt levels by $21.4 million and had $5.3 million in capital expenditures. The company's third quarter year-over-year revenue was adversely impacted by approximately 6% as a result of the OTA client transition and Aviva contract extension discussed in previous quarters. Excluding these onetime challenges, constant-currency revenue growth in the fiscal third quarter would have been over 13%. Sequentially, revenue growth was adversely impacted by the sharp depreciation in key revenue currencies against the U.S. dollar. The company provided earnings guidance for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015. For the period, the company expects revenue less repair payments to be between $502 million and $505 million, up from $471.5 million in fiscal 2014. This assumes an average GBP to USD exchange rate of 1.52 for the remainder of fiscal 2015. Based on a diluted share count of 53.2 million shares, the company expects adjusted diluted earnings per ADS to be in the range of $1.69 to $1.73. WNS continues to expect profitability to expand faster than revenue, with ANI guidance reflecting 24% to 27% year-over-year improvement. Net revenue is expected to grow between 6% and 7% or 5% to 6% on a constant currency basis. Excluding the headwinds from the OTA transition and Aviva contract extension, full year constant-currency growth will be approximately 11%. The company currently has over 99% visibility to the midpoint of guidance range. Adjusted net income is now expected to be in the range of $90 million to $92 million. The company also expects CapEx requirements will now be in the range of $23 million to $26 million, down from the $25 million to $30 million.
