Our capital expenditures in fiscal 2018, fiscal 2017, and 2016 amounted to $33.7 million, $22.9 million and $27.5 million, respectively. Our principal capital expenditure were incurred for the purposes of setting up new delivery centers, expanding existing delivery centers and developing new technology-enabled solutions to enable execution and management of clients business processes. We expect our capital expenditure needs in fiscal 2019 to be approximately $30.0 million, a significant amount of which we expect to spend on infrastructure build-out, technology-enablement and the streamlining of our operations. The geographical distribution, timing and volume of our capital expenditures in the future will depend on new client contracts we may enter into or the expansion of our business under our existing client contracts. As at March 31, 2018, we had commitments for capital expenditures of $5.8 million (net of advances to capital vendors) relating to the purchase of property and equipment for our delivery centers. Of this committed amount, we plan to spend approximately $3.0 million in India, approximately $0.3 million in South Africa, approximately $1.0 million in Philippines, approximately $0.04 million in Europe (excluding the UK), and approximately $1.5 million in the rest of the world. We expect to fund these estimated capital expenditures from cash generated from operating activities, existing cash and cash equivalents and the use of existing credit facilities. See Part I Item 5.
