Revenue in the second quarter was $149.8 million, representing a 6.2% increase versus Q2 of last year and a 1.2% increase from the previous quarter. Revenue less repair payments* in the second quarter was $143.7 million, an increase of 7.8% year-over-year and 2.1% sequentially. Excluding exchange rate impacts, constant currency revenue less repair payments* in the fiscal second quarter grew 16.0% versus Q2 of last year, and 4.6% sequentially. Year-over-year, fiscal Q2 revenue was adversely impacted by depreciation in the British Pound and South African Rand against the US Dollar. These headwinds were more than offset by revenue growth in the Healthcare, Travel, Shipping and Logistics, and Retail/CPG verticals. Sequentially, revenue improvement in the Travel and Healthcare verticals was partially offset by currency headwinds net of hedging.

Operating margin in the second quarter was 10.2%, as compared to 13.7% in Q2 of last year and 9.8% reported in the previous quarter. Second quarter adjusted operating margin* was 19.8%, versus 23.1% in Q2 of last year and 18.6% last quarter. On a year-over-year basis, these margins were pressured by currency movements net of hedging, the impact of our annual wage increases, and increased compensation associated with the India Payment of Bonus Act. Partially offsetting these costs was increased operating leverage from higher volumes. Sequentially, margins expanded as a result of productivity improvements, which more than offset costs associated with wage increases and reduced seat utilization.

Commencing this fiscal 2017 second quarter, we have revised the method of calculating our non-GAAP ANI and non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per ADS to include the income tax effect on the adjustments to our GAAP profit (being amortization of intangible assets and share-based compensation expense). We have applied this revised method of calculating our non-GAAP ANI and non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per ADS for the comparative periods to provide consistency across the periods presented in this release. The tables at the end of this release reconcile our GAAP operating results to our non-GAAP financial measures, as well as to our non-GAAP financial measures as previously calculated. GAAP Profit in the fiscal second quarter was $12.6 million, as compared to $15.5 million in Q2 of last year and $12.2 million in the previous quarter. Adjusted net income (ANI)* in Q2 was $22.0 million, down $2.2 million as compared to Q2 of last year and up $0.9 million from the previous quarter.

From a balance sheet perspective, WNS ended Q2 with $159.6 million in cash and investments and no debt. In the second quarter, the company generated $18.0 million in cash from operations, and had $6.9 million in capital expenditures. During Q2, WNS repurchased 395,444 ADSs at an average price of $29.43 per ADS, totaling $11.7 million. Days sales outstanding were 30 days, as compared to 27 days in Q2 of last year and 29 days reported in the previous quarter.

“WNS continues to deliver strong financial and operating performance, including solid constant currency revenue growth and operating margins. Our underlying business momentum remains healthy, and we are seeing broad-based opportunity across our key service offerings, geographies and verticals,” said Keshav Murugesh, WNS’s Chief Executive Officer. “While depreciation in the British Pound is pressuring our financials from a currency perspective, to date we have not seen an impact to our core business from Brexit. This includes the new deal pipeline, contract awards, project ramps and volumes with existing clients. Looking forward, WNS expects to leverage our strong balance sheet and to continue our investments in strategic focus areas such as domain expertise, technology-enabled solutions, digital offerings and analytics with the goal of optimizing stakeholder value.”

Fiscal 2017 Guidance

WNS is updating guidance for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017 as follows:

  • Revenue less repair payments* is expected to be between $551 million and $567 million, up from $531.0 million in fiscal 2016. This assumes an average GBP to USD exchange rate of 1.24 for the remainder of fiscal 2017.
  • The method of calculating our non-GAAP financial measures of ANI* and Adjusted diluted earnings per ADS* has changed to include the impact of tax effect on amortization of intangibles and share based compensation.
  • ANI* is expected to range between $84 million and $89 million versus $90.9 million in fiscal 2016. This assumes an average USD to INR exchange rate of 66.5 for the remainder of fiscal 2017.
    • As per previous method of calculation (excluding tax effect on non-GAAP adjustments), ANI* is expected to be in the range of $95 million and $100 million versus $103.0 million in fiscal 2016.
  • Based on a diluted share count of 52.5 million shares, the company expects adjusted diluted earnings* per ADS to be in the range of $1.60 to $1.70 versus $1.69 in fiscal 2016.
    • As per previous method of calculation (excluding tax effect on non-GAAP adjustments), adjusted diluted earnings* per ADS is expected to be in the range of $1.81 to $1.91 versus $1.92 in fiscal 2016.

“The company has updated our forecast for fiscal 2017 based on current visibility levels and exchange rates,” said Sanjay Puria, WNS’s Chief Financial Officer. “Our revised guidance for the year reflects growth in revenue less repair payments* of 4% to 7%, or 10% to 14% on a constant currency* basis. We currently have over 98% visibility to the midpoint of the range.”

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The financial information in this release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures that we believe more accurately reflect our core operating performance. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to our GAAP operating results are included below. A more detailed discussion of our GAAP results is contained in “Part I –Item 5. Operating and Financial Review and Prospects” in our annual report on Form 20-F filed with the SEC on May 12, 2016.

For financial statement reporting purposes, WNS has two reportable segments: WNS Global BPM and WNS Auto Claims BPM. Revenue less repair payments is a non-GAAP financial measure that is calculated as (a) revenue less (b) in the auto claims business, payments to repair centers for “fault” repair cases where WNS acts as the principal in its dealings with the third party repair centers and its clients. WNS believes that revenue less repair payments for “fault” repairs reflects more accurately the value addition of the business process management services that it directly provides to its clients. For more details, please see the discussion in “Part I – Item 5. Operating and Financial Review and Prospects – Overview” in our annual report on Form 20-F filed with the SEC on May 12, 2016.

Constant currency revenue less repair payments is a non-GAAP financial measure. We present constant currency revenue less repair payments so that revenue less repair payments may be viewed without the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, thereby facilitating period-to-period comparisons of business performance. Constant currency revenue less repair payments is presented by recalculating prior period’s revenue less repair payments denominated in currencies other than in US dollars using the foreign exchange rate used for the latest period, without taking into account the impact of hedging gains/losses. Our non-US dollar denominated revenues include, but are not limited to, revenues denominated in pound sterling, South African rand, Australian dollar and euro.

WNS also presents (1) adjusted operating margin, which refers to adjusted operating profit (calculated as operating profit excluding amortization of intangible assets and share-based compensation expense) as a percentage of revenue less repair payments, and (2) ANI, which is calculated as profit excluding amortization of intangible assets and share-based compensation expense and including the tax effect thereon, and other non-GAAP financial measures included in this release as supplemental measures of its performance. WNS presents these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes they assist investors in comparing its performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that it does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance. In addition, it uses these non-GAAP financial measures (i) as a factor in evaluating management’s performance when determining incentive compensation and (ii) to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies. These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for WNS’s financial results prepared in accordance with IFRS.

The company is not able to provide our forward-looking GAAP revenue, profit and earnings per ADS without unreasonable efforts for a number of reasons, including our inability to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the payments to repair centers, our future share-based compensation expense under IFRS 2 (Share Based payments), amortization of intangibles associated with future acquisitions, and currency fluctuations. As a result, any attempt to provide a reconciliation of the forward-looking GAAP financial measures (revenue, profit, earnings per ADS) to our forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures (revenue less repair payments*, ANI* and Adjusted diluted earnings* per ADS respectively) would imply a degree of likelihood that we do not believe is reasonable.

The company’s Non-GAAP tax expense is generally higher than its GAAP tax expense if the income subject to taxes is higher considering the effect of the items excluded from GAAP profit to arrive at Non-GAAP profit.
