Kris Canekeratne, Virtusa’s Chairman and CEO, stated, “We are pleased with our fourth quarter and full fiscal year results, which reinforce that our strategic initiatives designed to differentiate our value proposition, grow our existing client base, expand geographically and enhance our service delivery are paying off. By being able to address the duality our clients are facing by helping them innovate new solutions and transform their operating costs, the market opportunity for Virtusa continues to grow. As we look to fiscal year 2015, our objectives are very much aligned with the success we have been having and we are optimistic about our growth trajectory.”

Ranjan Kalia, Chief Financial Officer, said, “During the quarter, our revenue grew faster than the industry, as we had meaningful increases across our Top 10 and non-Top 10 client portfolios. We are also pleased with the progress we are making to extend our presence internationally. There has been a mix shift towards international revenue, and we believe this diversification will continue to be a growth driver.” Mr. Kalia added, “Consistent with prior fiscal years, we expect operating margin expansion in fiscal year 2015 as we drive significant top line growth.”

Financial Outlook

Virtusa management provided the following current financial guidance:

  • First quarter fiscal year 2015 revenue is expected to be in the range of $111.0 to $113.0 million, with diluted EPS of $0.29 to $0.33.
  • Fiscal year 2015 revenue is expected to be in the range of $468.0 to $486.0 million, with diluted EPS of $1.44 to $1.60.

The Company’s first quarter and fiscal year 2015 diluted EPS estimates both assume an average share count of approximately 29.4 million, (assuming no further exercises of stock-based awards) and assume a stock price of $33.38, which was derived from the average closing price of the Company’s stock over the five trading days ended on May 9, 2014. Deviations from this stock price may cause actual EPS to vary based on share dilution from Virtusa’s stock options and stock appreciation rights.

Footnotes

(1) To determine year-over-year constant currency revenue for the Company's fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, revenue from entities reporting in U.K. pound sterling was converted into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rate in effect for the three months ended March 31, 2013 of 1.54 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling, rather than the actual exchange rate in effect for the three months ended March 31, 2014 of 1.66 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling. To determine sequential revenue change in constant currency for the Company's fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, revenue from entities reporting in U.K. pounds sterling was converted into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rate in effect for the three months ended December 31, 2013 of 1.62 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling, rather than the actual exchange rate in effect for the three months ended March 31, 2014 of 1.66 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling.

(2) The Company considers the measure of cash, cash equivalents, short-term and long-term investments to be a more meaningful indicator of the Company's overall liquidity. All of the Company's investments are classified as available-for-sale, including the Company's long-term investments which consist of fixed income securities, including government agency bonds and municipal and corporate bonds, which meet the credit rating and diversification requirements of the Company's investment policy as approved by the Company's audit committee and board of directors.
