NEWTOWN, Pa., Aug. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EPAM Systems, Inc. (NYSE:EPAM), a leading global provider of product development and software engineering solutions, today announced its second quarter 2015 financial results.

Second Quarter 2015 Highlights

Revenues increased to $217.8 million, up 24.7% over the same period last year and up 8.9% over the previous quarter. In constant currency, revenue grew 32.5% year over year and 6.7% from the first quarter of 2015. GAAP income from operations was $23.6 million, an increase of 27.8% compared to $18.5 million in the second quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP income from operations was $36.9 million, an increase of $8.0 million, or 27.7%, from $28.9 million in the second quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP quarterly diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.64, up 20.8% from $0.53 in the second quarter of 2014. Quarterly diluted EPS on a GAAP basis was $0.37, up from $0.30 in the year-ago quarter.

EPAM reported cash from operations of $2.2 million in the second quarter of 2015 and $9.0 million on a year to date basis. At June 30, 2015, cash and cash equivalents were $175.7 million.

"We are pleased with our strong financial results for the second quarter of 2015," said Arkadiy Dobkin, CEO and President of EPAM. "Our revenue growth is on target with our projections and we continue to see broad-based gains across multiple dimensions of our business. Despite the currency headwinds, we are maintaining our market momentum and remain focused on further differentiating our capabilities and enhancing our offerings."

Full Year and Third Quarter 2015 Outlook

Factoring in the over-performance we have experienced in the first half of the year, combined with expectations from the recent acquisition of NavigationArts, Inc., EPAM is increasing guidance and now expects full-year revenue growth to be between 23% and 25%. Non-GAAP net income growth for 2015 is expected to be in the range of 22% to 24% year-over-year, with an effective tax rate of approximately 21%. The full year weighted average share count is expected to be approximately 52 million diluted shares outstanding.

For the third quarter of 2015, EPAM expects revenues between $238 million and $240 million, representing a growth rate of 23% to 25% over third quarter 2014 revenues. Third quarter 2015 non-GAAP diluted EPS is expected to be in the range of $0.66 to $0.68 based on an estimated third quarter 2015 weighted average of 52 million diluted shares. GAAP diluted EPS is expected to be in the range of $0.43 to $0.45.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EPAM supplements results reported in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles, referred to as GAAP, with non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes these measures help illustrate underlying trends in EPAM's business and uses the measures to establish budgets and operational goals, communicated internally and externally, for managing EPAM's business and evaluating its performance. Management also believes these measures help investors compare EPAM's operating performance with its results in prior periods. EPAM anticipates that it will continue to report both GAAP and certain non-GAAP financial measures in its financial results, including non-GAAP results that exclude stock-based compensation expense, write-off and recovery, amortization of purchased intangible assets, goodwill impairment, legal settlement, foreign exchange gains and losses, and acquisition-related costs. Because EPAM's reported non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated according to GAAP, these measures are not comparable to GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly described non-GAAP measures reported by other companies within EPAM's industry. Consequently, EPAM's non-GAAP financial measures should not be evaluated in isolation or supplant comparable GAAP measures, but, rather, should be considered together with the information in EPAM's consolidated financial statements, which are prepared according to GAAP.
