NEW YORK; June 26, 2008 — Accenture (NYSE: ACN) reported strong financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2008, ended May 31, with net revenues of $6.10 billion, a year-over-year increase of 20 percent in U.S. dollars and 12 percent in local currency and the highest quarterly net revenues in the company’s history. Consulting and outsourcing revenues were both quarterly records, growing by double digits in U.S. dollars and local currency.
Earnings per share were $0.74, the highest for any quarter in the company’s history and an increase of 36 percent over the third quarter of fiscal 2007, driven largely by strong growth in revenue and operating income. In addition, the company has again raised its outlook for earnings per share for the full fiscal year 2008, to a range of $2.63 to $2.65 from its previously guided range of $2.55 to $2.60.
New bookings were $6.77 billion, with record quarterly consulting bookings of $3.98 billion.
The company grew operating income by 27 percent and expanded its operating margin by 70 basis points over the third quarter last year.
William D. Green, Accenture’s chairman & CEO, said, “Our excellent results in the third quarter include our highest-ever quarterly revenues and earnings per share. In addition, our disciplined approach to managing our diverse and global business enabled us to expand our operating margin, and the solid bookings we achieved demonstrate continued strong global demand for our services, even in markets experiencing difficult economic conditions.
“We continue to benefit from our long-term relationships with our clients, who seek our help in entering new markets, lowering the cost of doing business and managing increased levels of risk as they work to achieve and maintain high performance.  To ensure that we continue to meet and anticipate our clients’ needs, we are investing in technological innovation and expanding our skills and capabilities through both organic growth and tactical acquisitions.  We see strong momentum in our business as we look to the rest of the fiscal year, and we remain focused on delivering value for our clients, and in turn, our shareholders.”
