TROY, Mich., July 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Syntel, Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNT), a global information technology services and Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) firm, today announced financial results for the second quarter, ended June 30, 2011.
Second Quarter Financial Highlights
Syntel's revenue for the second quarter increased 20 percent to $157.0 million, compared to $130.6 million in the prior-year period, and increased eight percent sequentially from $145.4 million in the first quarter of 2011. During the second quarter, Applications Outsourcing accounted for 74 percent of total revenue, with Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) at 16 percent, e-Business contributing eight percent and TeamSourcing at two percent.
The Company's gross margin was 36.2 percent in the second quarter, compared to 39.5 percent in the prior-year period and 35.0 percent in the first quarter of 2011. Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expenses were 17.7 percent in the second quarter, compared to 14.6 percent in the prior-year period and 16.9 percent in the previous quarter. Second quarter income from operations was 18.5 percent as compared to 24.8 percent in the prior-year period and 18.0 percent in the first quarter. Operating margins improved sequentially during the second quarter, despite the adverse impact of offshore wage increases, visa fees and costs associated with infrastructure expansion.
Net income for the second quarter was $27.6 million or $0.66 per diluted share, compared to $28.3 million or $0.68 per diluted share in the prior-year period and net income of $25.0 million or $0.60 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2011.
During Q2, Syntel spent $10.3 million in CAPEX, largely in support of campus infrastructure, and finished the quarter with cash and short-term investments of $294.6 million. The Company also added 417 net employees, ending the quarter with 18,027 employees globally.
"Our second quarter revenue acceleration allowed Syntel to absorb seasonal cost increases and still generate margin improvement," said Syntel CEO and President Prashant Ranade. "Growth was broad-based across services, verticals and geographies and we remain confident in our ability to deepen relationships with our strategic clients. While global economic uncertainty is a concern, we are pleased that at this point in time client spending patterns have not been impacted."
"Syntel is investing in the long-term health of our business, and we expect to continue our hiring and infrastructure build-out plans in the second half of 2011," said Ranade. "These investments are critical to driving long-term sustainable business value for all Syntel stakeholders, including our clients, shareholders and employees."
Based on current visibility levels and an exchange rate assumption of 44.5 rupees to the dollar, the Company currently expects 2011 revenue of $625 to $640 million and EPS in the range of $2.75 to $2.90.
