NEW YORK; Dec. 21, 2017 — Accenture (NYSE: ACN) reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, ended Nov. 30, 2017, with net revenues of $9.5 billion, an increase of 12 percent in U.S. dollars and 10 percent in local currency over the same period last year.

Diluted earnings per share were $1.79, an increase of $0.21, or 13 percent from the first quarter last year.

Operating income was $1.49 billion, an increase of 12 percent over the same period last year, and operating margin was 15.6 percent, consistent with the first quarter last year.

New bookings for the quarter were $10.0 billion, with consulting bookings of $5.9 billion and outsourcing bookings of $4.0 billion.

Pierre Nanterme, Accenture’s chairman and CEO, said, “We delivered excellent financial results for the first quarter. I am particularly pleased with our broad-based revenue growth of 10 percent in local currency – including double-digit growth in four of our five operating groups and two of our three geographic regions – as well as very strong new bookings. We also delivered 13 percent growth in earnings per share and returned $1.4 billion in cash to our shareholders.

“Our outstanding results reflect the significant investments we have made to differentiate Accenture – especially in digital, cloud and security services, which account for more than half of our total revenues. Our growth strategy is clearly resonating with our clients, and we are very well-positioned to continue gaining market share, driving profitable growth and delivering value for our clients and shareholders.”

Business Outlook

Second Quarter Fiscal 2018

Accenture expects net revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 to be in the range of $9.15 billion to $9.40 billion, 6 percent to 9 percent growth in local currency, reflecting the company’s assumption of a positive 4.5 percent foreign-exchange impact compared with the second quarter of fiscal 2017. 

Fiscal Year 2018

Accenture’s business outlook for the full 2018 fiscal year now assumes that the foreign-exchange impact on its results in U.S. dollars will be positive 2.5 percent compared with fiscal 2017; the previous foreign-exchange assumption was positive 3 percent.

For fiscal 2018, the company now expects net revenue growth to be in the range of 6 percent to 8 percent in local currency, compared with 5 percent to 8 percent previously.

The company now expects GAAP diluted EPS to be in the range of $6.48 to $6.66, compared with $6.36 to $6.60 previously. The updated EPS range represents 19 percent to 22 percent growth over GAAP EPS of $5.44 for fiscal 2017, and 10 percent to 13 percent growth over adjusted EPS of $5.91.  

Accenture continues to expect operating margin for the full fiscal year to be in the range of 14.9 percent to 15.1 percent, an expansion of 10 to 30 basis points from adjusted operating margin for fiscal 2017.

For fiscal 2018, the company continues to expect operating cash flow to be in the range of $5.0 billion to $5.3 billion; property and equipment additions to be $600 million; and free cash flow to be in the range of $4.4 billion to $4.7 billion. 

The company now expects its annual effective tax rate to be in the range of 22 percent to 24 percent, compared with 23 percent to 25 percent previously. The company’s outlook for its tax rate does not include the potential impact from U.S. tax reform.

These statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied. These include, without limitation, risks that: the company’s results of operations could be adversely affected by volatile, negative or uncertain economic and political conditions and the effects of these conditions on the company’s clients’ businesses and levels of business activity; the company’s business depends on generating and maintaining ongoing, profitable client demand for the company’s services and solutions including through the adaptation and expansion of its services and solutions in response to ongoing changes in technology and offerings, and a significant reduction in such demand or an inability to respond to the changing technological environment could materially affect the company’s results of operations; if the company is unable to keep its supply of skills and resources in balance with client demand around the world and attract and retain professionals with strong leadership skills, the company’s business, the utilization rate of the company’s professionals and the company’s results of operations may be materially adversely affected; the company could have liability or the company’s reputation could be damaged if the company fails to protect client and/or company data from





security breaches or cyberattacks; the markets in which the company operates are highly competitive, and the company might not be able to compete effectively; the company’s profitability could suffer if the company is unable to obtain favorable pricing for its services and solutions, if the company is unable to remain competitive, if its cost-management strategies are unsuccessful or if it experiences delivery inefficiencies; changes in our level of taxes, as well as audits, investigations and tax proceedings, or changes in tax laws or in their interpretation or enforcement, could have a material adverse effect on our effective tax rate, results of operations, cash flows and financial condition; the company’s results of operations could be materially adversely affected by fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; the company’s business could be materially adversely affected if the company incurs legal liability; the company’s work with government clients exposes the company to additional risks inherent in the government contracting environment; the company might not be successful at identifying, acquiring, investing in or integrating businesses, entering into joint ventures or divesting businesses; the company’s global delivery capability is concentrated in India and the Philippines, which may expose it to operational risks; as a result of the company’s geographically diverse operations and its growth strategy to continue geographic expansion, the company is more susceptible to certain risks; adverse changes to the company’s relationships with key alliance partners or in the business of its key alliance partners could adversely affect the company’s results of operations; if the company is unable to protect its intellectual property rights or if the company’s services or solutions infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others or the company loses its ability to utilize the intellectual property of others, its business could be adversely affected; the company’s ability to attract and retain business and employees may depend on its reputation in the marketplace; if the company is unable to manage the organizational challenges associated with its size, the company might be unable to achieve its business objectives; any changes to the estimates and assumptions that the company makes in connection with the preparation of its consolidated financial statements could adversely affect its financial results; many of the company’s contracts include payments that link some of its fees to the attainment of performance or business targets and/or require the company to meet specific service levels, which could increase the variability of the company’s revenues and impact its margins; the company’s results of operations and share price could be adversely affected if it is unable to maintain effective internal controls; the company might be unable to access additional capital on favorable terms or at all and if the company raises equity capital, it may dilute its shareholders’ ownership interest in the company; the company may be subject to criticism and negative publicity related to its incorporation in Ireland; as well as the risks, uncertainties and other factors discussed under the “Risk Factors” heading in Accenture plc’s most recent annual report on Form 10-K and other documents filed with or furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
