Kris Canekeratne, Virtusa’s Chairman and CEO, stated, "This was a very solid quarter for Virtusa, and we have strong momentum entering the second half of the fiscal year. We have steadily expanded client relationships, added more sources of recurring revenue and established Virtusa as a thought leader on transformational programs and millennial enterprise readiness. Our targeted solutions and services are increasing the value we provide to our clients and helping us to navigate the macroeconomic challenges more effectively." Mr. Canekeratne continued, "I also wanted to congratulate Ranjan on his promotion to Executive Vice President. Ranjan’s dedication and hard work are exemplary and I am very pleased with the contributions he has made towards building a sustainable and predictable growth platform, as well as leading a world-class finance organization."
Ranjan Kalia, Chief Financial Officer, said, “We were pleased with our ability to grow operating profit and expand operating margins during the quarter even while absorbing our annual wage increases.” Mr. Kalia added, “Based on our strong performance for the first half of the fiscal year and our ongoing momentum, we are raising our guidance for the full fiscal year 2013."
Virtusa management provided the following current financial guidance:
- Third quarter fiscal 2013 revenue is expected to be in the range of $84.5 to $86.5 million, with diluted EPS of $0.26 to $0.30.
- Fiscal year 2013 revenue is expected to be in the range of $328.0 to $334.0 million, with diluted EPS of $1.03 to $1.11.
The Company’s third quarter and fiscal year 2013 diluted EPS estimates assume an average share count of approximately 25.6 million (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 $17.07, which was derived from the average closing price of the Company’s stock over the five trading days ended on October 31, 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.
(1) To determine year-over-year constant currency revenue for the Company's second 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 September 30, 2011 of 1.60 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling, rather than the actual exchange rate in effect for the three months ended September 30, 2012 of 1.59 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling. To determine sequential revenue change in constant currency for the Company's second 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 June 30, 2012 of 1.57 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling, rather than the actual exchange rate in effect for the three months ended September 30, 2012 of 1.59 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.
