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.

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.”
