Kris Canekeratne, Virtusa’s Chairman and CEO, stated, “Our strategy to expand our addressable market by investing in industry leading digital engineering services, operational excellence, and industry solutions is playing out well for us. We delivered market-leading sequential revenue growth and we are raising our full fiscal year guidance. The number of leading enterprises that rely on Virtusa for their most strategic end-to-end digital and transformational programs continues to grow. This gives us confidence in our growth strategy and long-term prospects.”

Ranjan Kalia, Chief Financial Officer, said, “During the second quarter, we delivered strong sequential revenue growth that exceeded the high end of our prior guidance.  We generated double-digit sequential and year-over-year operating income growth and strong sequential margin accretion. In addition, EPS growth was faster than revenue growth. Our second quarter momentum is expected to continue for the remainder of the fiscal year allowing us to raise our full fiscal year guidance.”
