Pierre Nanterme, Accenture’s chairman and CEO, said, “We are pleased with our strong financial results for the first quarter. We delivered 7 percent revenue growth in local currency, which was broad-based across the dimensions of our business. We significantly expanded operating margin, delivered very strong earnings per share and free cash flow, and returned nearly $1.4 billion in cash to our shareholders.

“We continue to make significant investments in new and high-growth areas across Accenture –
especially digital, cloud and security services, which together now account for more than 40 percent of total revenues and again grew at a very strong double-digit rate in the quarter. With the differentiated, high-value capabilities we are building, we remain confident in our ability to continue driving profitable growth, gaining market share and delivering value for our clients and shareholders.”
