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.”
