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.
