William D. Green, Accenture’s chairman & CEO, said, “We delivered a solid quarter, given an economic environment that is as challenging as any we have ever experienced. This increasingly uncertain environment is affecting business broadly and has had a dramatic impact on some of our clients. Against that backdrop, we grew revenues in local currency, grew operating income, expanded operating margin by 150 basis points and delivered solid earnings per share. We also generated significant cash flow, and our balance sheet remains exceptionally strong.
“We continue to stay relevant and responsive to our clients to help them adapt to their changing needs. We are revising our business outlook for the rest of the year to reflect the continued uncertainty in the global marketplace. That said, we continued to grow market share, and our results in the second quarter reflect our intense focus on the disciplined management of our business. We believe we are well-positioned to continue to deliver significant value to our clients and shareholders.”
