First Quarter Fiscal 2013 Consolidated Financial Results

Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $76.2 million, an increase of 3% sequentially and 25% year-over-year. On a constant currency basis (1), first quarter revenue increased 3% sequentially and 26% year-over-year.

Virtusa reported income from operations of $6.9 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to $7.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, and compared to $4.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2012.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $6.1 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, compared to $5.8 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, and compared to $4.0 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 included $0.4 million of foreign currency transaction gains compared to a gain of $0.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, and a loss of ($0.2) million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012.

The Company ended the first quarter of fiscal 2013 with $78.4 million of cash, cash equivalents, and short-term and long-term investments (2). The Company generated cash from operations of $2.4 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2013. During the first quarter of 2013, the Company repurchased $1.4 million of its common stock under its stock repurchase program.

Kris Canekeratne, Virtusa’s Chairman and CEO, stated, “We are pleased with our first quarter performance. While the macroeconomic environment is challenging, we are seeing continued growth, including solid performance from BFSI. Our heritage of building innovative solution sets and embracing change is being recognized by companies who realize that they must effectively compete in the Millennial Enterprise by adopting emerging technologies.”

Ranjan Kalia, Chief Financial Officer, said, “We are off to a solid start to fiscal 2013 with our first quarter revenue and operating profit growing double digits year-over-year.” Mr. Kalia added, “We expect revenue momentum to continue for the remainder of the fiscal year, and we are well-positioned to meet our full fiscal year objectives of mid to high teens revenue growth and double digit EPS expansion.”

Financial Outlook

Virtusa management provided the following current financial guidance:
  • Second quarter fiscal 2013 revenue is expected to be in the range of $78.5 to $80.5 million, with diluted EPS of $0.21 to $0.25.
  • Fiscal year 2013 revenue is expected to be in the range of $320.0 to $330.0 million, with diluted EPS of $1.01 to $1.13.

The Company’s second quarter and fiscal year 2013 diluted EPS estimates assume an average share count of approximately 25.4 million and 25.5 million, respectively (assuming no further exercises of stock-based awards and no repurchases of the Company’s stock under its share repurchase program) and assume a stock price of $12.13, which was derived from the average closing price of the Company’s stock over the five trading days ended on July 27, 2012. Deviations from this stock price may cause actual EPS to vary based on share dilution from Virtusa’s stock options and stock appreciation rights.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial information as defined by Regulation G by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Virtusa presents constant currency revenue to provide insights into, and a framework for assessing, how Virtusa's revenue performed excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations (see footnote (1) below for further detail). Virtusa also presents a reconciliation of its cash, cash equivalents, short term and long term investments which it believes provides insight into its cash position and overall liquidity (see footnote (2) below for further detail). While Virtusa's management believes that these non-GAAP revenue measures and cash reconciliation presentations are useful in evaluating Virtusa's revenue and cash position and overall liquidity, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and not as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Footnotes

(1) To determine year-over-year constant currency revenue for the Company's first quarter of fiscal 2013, revenue from entities reporting in U.K. pound sterling was converted into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rate in effect for the three months ended June 30, 2011 of 1.63 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling, rather than the actual exchange rate in effect for the three months ended June 30, 2012 of 1.57 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling. To determine sequential revenue change in constant currency for the Company's first quarter of fiscal 2013, revenue from entities reporting in U.K. pounds sterling was converted into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rate in effect for the three months ended March 31, 2012 of 1.58 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling, rather than the actual exchange rate in effect for the three months ended June 30, 2012 of 1.57 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling.

(2) The Company considers the measure of cash, cash equivalents, short-term and long-term investments to be a more meaningful indicator of the Company's overall liquidity. All of the Company's investments are classified as available-for-sale, including the Company's long-term investments which consist of fixed income securities, including government agency bonds and municipal and corporate bonds, which meet the credit rating and diversification requirements of the Company's investment policy as approved by the Company's audit committee and board of directors.
