Accenture plc Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended February 28, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2015; Increases Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal 2015

Accenture plc announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended February 28, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net income attributable to company of $690.7 million or $1.08 per basic and diluted share on revenue of $7,931.6 million compared to net profit attributable to equity holders of $671.3 million or $1.03 per basic and diluted share on revenue of $7,567.5 million reported in the same period last year. Operating income was $1,021.0 million against $951.3 million reported last year. Income before income tax was $1,005 million against $950.1 million reported last year. Net cash provided by operating activities was $301.3 million against $292.4 million reported last year. Purchases of property and equipment was $81.6 million against $76.2 million reported last year. For the six months, the company reported net income attributable to company of $1,522.3 million or $2.37 per basic and diluted share on revenue of $16,274.8 million compared to net profit attributable to equity holders of $1,423.1 million or $2.18 per basic and diluted share on revenue of $15,367.2 million reported in the same period last year. Operating income was $2,208.7 million against $2,042.4 million reported last year. Income before income tax was $2,197 million against $2,033.7 million reported last year. Net cash provided by operating activities was $1,174.2 million against $473.6 million reported last year. Purchases of property and equipment was $133.4 million against $135.1 million reported last year. Accenture expects net revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 to be in the range of $7.35 billion to $7.60 billion. This range assumes a foreign-exchange impact of negative 11% compared with the third quarter of fiscal 2014. For fiscal 2015, the company has raised its outlook for net revenue growth in local currency to be in the range of 8% to 10%, compared with 5% to 8% previously. Accenture now expects diluted GAAP EPS to be in the range of $4.61 to $4.71, including the positive impact of its increased revenue outlook, which is offset by the negative impact of its revised foreign-exchange assumption, as well as the negative impact of the settlement charge. Excluding the settlement charge, adjusted EPS is expected to be in the range of $4.66 to $4.76. The company’s previously guided range for EPS was $4.66 to $4.80. Accenture now expects GAAP operating margin for the full fiscal year to be in the range of 14.2% to 14.4%, compared with its previously guided range of 14.4% to 14.6%. Excluding the settlement charge, operating margin for the full fiscal year is expected to be in the range of 14.4% to 14.6%, an expansion of 10 to 30 basis points from fiscal 2014—consistent with the company’s previous expectation. Reflecting its revised foreign-exchange assumption, the company now expects operating cash flow for fiscal 2015 to be in the range of $3.85 billion to $4.15 billion, compared with $3.95 billion to $4.25 billion previously; continues to expect property and equipment additions to be $450 million; and now expects free cash flow to be in the range of $3.4 billion to $3.7 billion, compared with $3.5 billion to $3.8 billion previously. The company continues to expect its annual effective tax rate to be in the range of 26.0% to 27.0%.
