In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year.

Cognizant Announces Record Third Quarter 2012 Results
Revenue up 5.4% sequentially and 18.2% year-over-year; Reaffirms full-year revenue guidance and increases full-year EPS expectations

TEANECK, N.J., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation (NASDAQ: CTSH), a leading provider of information technology, consulting, and business process outsourcing services, today announced its third quarter 2012 financial results.

Highlights – Third Quarter 2012

  • Quarterly revenue rose to $1.892 billion, up 5.4% sequentially and 18.2% from the year-ago quarter.
  • Quarterly diluted EPS on a GAAP basis was $0.91, compared to $0.73 in the year-ago quarter.
  • Quarterly diluted EPS on a non-GAAP basis, which excludes stock-based compensation expense, was $0.97, compared to $0.80 in the year-ago quarter.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP diluted EPS includes the impact of $0.01 in net non-operating foreign currency exchange loss.
  • Net headcount addition for the quarter was approximately 5,100.

Revenue for the third quarter of 2012 rose to $1.892 billion, up 18.2% from $1.601 billion in the third quarter of 2011. GAAP net income was $276.9 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, compared to $227.1 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011. Diluted earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis was $0.97. GAAP operating margin for the quarter was 18.8%. Excluding stock-based compensation expense of $22.3 million, non-GAAP operating margin was 20.0%, in line with the Company's targeted 19-20% range. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP operating results and diluted EPS are included at the end of this release.

"Cognizant's strong results reaffirm the acceptance of our value proposition that helps clients address the dual mandate of driving efficiency and effectiveness in their core business while investing in innovation and business transformation for long-term growth," said Francisco D'Souza, Chief Executive Officer. "Our consulting-led approach, intimate client relationships, deep domain knowledge and robust execution give us the confidence to deliver revenue growth of at least 20% in 2012."

"We are pleased that our growth was broad-based across services and geographies," said Gordon Coburn, President. "Of particular note this quarter is the performance of our newer service offerings of Consulting, Business Process Outsourcing and IT Infrastructure Services. On a combined basis, these services have been growing materially faster than company average, and this quarter comprised nearly 20% of total revenue. They will continue to be important drivers of our long-term growth as each represents a large addressable market with low penetration of the global delivery model."

2012 Outlook – Fourth Quarter and Full Year

The Company is providing the following guidance:

  • Fourth quarter 2012 revenue anticipated to be at least $1.94 billion.
  • Fourth quarter 2012 diluted EPS expected to be $0.91 on a GAAP basis and $0.97 on a non-GAAP basis, which excludes estimated stock-based compensation expense.
  • Fiscal 2012 revenue expected to be at least $7.34 billion, up at least 20% compared to 2011.
  • Fiscal 2012 diluted EPS expected to be at least $3.42 on a GAAP basis, and $3.69 on a non-GAAP basis, which excludes estimated stock-based compensation expense.
  • EPS guidance excludes any fourth quarter non-operating foreign currency exchange gain or loss.  

"Our financial model continues to allow us to deliver robust top-line growth with stable margins, while investing in our next generation of services to ensure long-term strength," said Karen McLoughlin, Chief Financial Officer. "Despite the recent appreciation of the Indian Rupee, we remain confident in our ability to maintain our non-GAAP operating margin within our stated 19-20% range. Our extensive India Rupee hedge program, which now totals approximately $3.7 billion, helps mitigate the impact of such volatility on our operating margins. In addition, strong cash flows during the quarter allowed us to increase our cash and investment balances by almost $300 million to over $2.6 billion."

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release includes statements which may constitute forward-looking statements made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, the accuracy of which are necessarily subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions as to future events that may not prove to be accurate. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied include general economic conditions and the factors discussed in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Cognizant undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities law.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release includes the following measures defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission as non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. These non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures, the financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations of Cognizant's GAAP financial statements to such non-GAAP measures should be carefully evaluated.

We seek to manage the company to a targeted operating margin, excluding stock-based compensation costs, of 19% to 20% of revenues. Accordingly, we believe that non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, excluding stock-based compensation costs, are meaningful measures for investors to evaluate our financial performance. For our internal management reporting and budgeting purposes, we use financial statements that do not include stock-based compensation expense for financial and operational decision making, to evaluate period-to-period comparisons and for making comparisons of our operating results to those of our competitors. Moreover, because of varying available valuation methodologies permitted under U.S. GAAP and the variety of award types that companies can use, we believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expense allows investors to make additional comparisons between our operating results to those of other companies. Accordingly, we believe that the presentation of non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, when read in conjunction with our reported GAAP results, can provide useful supplemental information to our management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations.

A limitation of using non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share versus operating margin and diluted earnings per share calculated in accordance with GAAP is that non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share exclude costs, namely stock-based compensation, that are recurring. Stock-based compensation will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in our business. In addition, other companies may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently than us, thereby limiting the usefulness of these non-GAAP financial measures as a comparative tool. We compensate for this limitation by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and evaluating such non-GAAP financial measures with financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
