    Financial Outlook

    Virtusa management provided the following current financial guidance:

  • Second quarter fiscal year 2015 revenue is expected to be in the range of $116.0 to $118.0 million, with diluted EPS of $0.33 to $0.35.
  • Fiscal year 2015 revenue is expected to be in the range of $474.0 to $486.0 million, with diluted EPS of $1.46 to $1.58.

    The Company’s second quarter and full fiscal year 2015 diluted EPS estimates assume an average share count of approximately 29.3 million and 29.4 million respectively, (assuming no further exercises of stock-based awards) and assume a stock price of $31.80, which was derived from the average closing price of the Company’s stock over the five trading days ended on August 4, 2014. Deviations from this stock price may cause actual EPS to vary based on share dilution from Virtusa’s stock options and stock appreciation rights.

    (1) To determine year-over-year constant currency revenue for the Company's first quarter of fiscal 2015, 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, 2013 of 1.54 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling, rather than the actual exchange rate in effect for the three months ended June 30, 2014 of 1.69 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling. To determine sequential revenue change in constant currency for the Company's first quarter of fiscal 2015, 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, 2014 of 1.66 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling, rather than the actual exchange rate in effect for the three months ended June 30, 2014 of 1.69 U.S. dollars to U.K. pounds sterling.

    (2) The Company considers the measure of cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments together with 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.

    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) above for further detail). Virtusa also presents its cash, cash equivalents and short term investments together with its long term investments to provide additional insight into its overall liquidity and cash position (see footnote (2) above for further detail). These non-GAAP measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Virtusa's management believes that these non-GAAP revenue measures and liquidity presentations, when viewed with our results under U.S. GAAP and the accompanying reconciliations, are useful in providing additional information and evaluating Virtusa's revenue and overall liquidity position. This information should be considered as supplemental in nature and not as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

    Reconciliations of these non-GAAP revenue measures and liquidity presentations to GAAP financial measures are included in this press release.
