NEW YORK; Oct. 6, 2005 — Accenture (NYSE: ACN) today reported financial results for the fourth-quarter and full fiscal year ended Aug. 31, 2005, with record annual revenues, operating income and earnings per share. In addition, the company announced that its Board of Directors has declared an annual cash dividend.
William D. Green, Accenture’s CEO, said, “We’re truly pleased by our outstanding performance in the fourth quarter and full year. Our record revenues in fiscal 2005 included our highest annual revenue growth in consulting since we became a public company in 2001. We grew revenues well ahead of the industry average, hit our operating margin target of 13 percent, achieved double-digit EPS growth, and maintained our strong cash flow and balance sheet. We also accrued variable compensation for our employees.

“We’re also pleased to be able to return cash to shareholders through a cash dividend in addition to ongoing share repurchases.”
