NEW YORK; Sept. 30, 2010 — Accenture (NYSE: ACN) reported strong financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, ended Aug. 31, and full-year results in line with the company’s expectations.

For the fourth quarter, revenues before reimbursements (“net revenues”) were $5.42 billion, an increase of 5 percent in U.S. dollars and 8 percent in local currency compared with the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009. Diluted earnings per share were $0.66. New bookings were $6.5 billion. Operating margin was 13.2 percent. Free cash flow was $1.15 billion.

For the full fiscal year, net revenues were $21.55 billion, flat in U.S. dollars and a decrease of 2 percent in local currency compared with fiscal 2009. Diluted earnings per share were $2.66. New bookings were $25.0 billion. Operating margin was 13.5 percent. Free cash flow was $2.85 billion, which exceeded the top end of the company’s expectations by $350 million.

In addition, Accenture’s Board of Directors has declared a semi-annual cash dividend of $0.45 per share, an increase of 7.5 cents per share, or 20 percent, over its previous semi-annual dividend, declared in March.

William D. Green, Accenture’s chairman & CEO, said, “We’re very pleased with our financial results, with our strong fourth-quarter performance demonstrating further evidence of our growth and momentum. We managed our business well and accelerated actions to grow revenue and expand operating margin. And our strong bookings — including consulting bookings of more than $3.5 billion — show increasing demand for our services. We generated significant free cash flow, and our balance sheet remains exceptionally strong. We continued our commitment to return cash to shareholders through an increased semi-annual cash dividend, declared today, and through the repurchase of more than $2 billion of our shares during fiscal 2010.

“We are working at the heart of our clients’ businesses, helping them navigate the changing global environment and improve their performance. We will continue to invest in our core business, as well as in new growth areas and markets, to deliver increasing value to both our clients and shareholders. Despite ongoing challenges in the global economy, we are well-positioned for growth and expansion in the year ahead.”
