Accenture Achieves Record Annual Revenues, EPS, Free Cash Flow and
New Bookings for Fiscal 2006
— EPS of $0.56 for quarter and $1.59 for year exceed company’s expectations —
— Company resolves NHS matter; reported results reflect impact of
agreement announced today —
— Company declares cash dividend of $0.35 per share —
NEW YORK; Sept. 28, 2006 — Accenture (NYSE: ACN) reported record financial results and the successful resolution of previously reported issues with its contracts with the National Health Service (NHS) in England.
“I’m delighted that we have resolved the NHS contracts, arriving at an agreement that benefits all parties, is clearly in the best interest of our shareholders, and puts this matter successfully behind us,” said William D. Green, Accenture’s chairman and CEO. “Our results for the quarter and the year clearly demonstrate the strength and momentum of our business. We had record revenues for the fifth consecutive year. We exceeded our outlook for EPS for both the quarter and the full year. We achieved solid bookings in both consulting and outsourcing, demonstrating strong demand for our services. Our cash flows are exceptionally strong. And we continue to return cash to shareholders, repurchasing more than $2 billion of our shares during the year and declaring our second annual cash dividend.”
Accenture’s results include the financial impact of the agreement announced earlier today resolving the NHS matter (the Agreement), which resulted in a reduction of Accenture’s net revenues in the fourth quarter of $339 million. This reduction in net revenues was offset by a corresponding decrease in cost of services. As a result, there was no impact on operating income or EPS for the quarter.
