Ranjan Kalia, Chief Financial Officer, said, "We are pleased with our robust performance across key financial metrics. We delivered strong revenue growth, expanded operating margin by 150 basis points year-over-year, increased diluted EPS at a faster rate than revenue, growing 31 percent year-over-year, and generated strong cash flow."
Virtusa management provided the following current financial guidance:
-Fourth quarter fiscal 2013 revenue is expected to be in the range of $88.8 to $90.8 million, with diluted EPS of $0.30 to $0.32.
-Fiscal year 2013 revenue is expected to be in the range of $332.0 to $334.0 million, with diluted EPS of $1.05 to $1.07.
The Company's fourth quarter and fiscal year 2013 diluted EPS estimates assume an average share count of approximately 25.8 million and 25.6 million respectively (assuming no further exercises of stock-based awards) and assume a stock price of $19.18, which was derived from the average closing price of the Company's stock over the five trading days ended on January 29, 2013. Deviations from this share count or stock price would cause actual EPS to vary based on share dilution from Virtusa's stock options and stock appreciation rights.
