Syntel Revises 2015 Revenue Outlook

TROY, Mich., Dec. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Syntel, Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNT), a global provider of digital transformation, information technology and knowledge process services to Global 2000 companies, today announced that the Company is revising its 2015 revenue outlook.

During the fourth quarter, unprecedented rains and flooding in Chennai resulted in a significant disruption to the lives of millions of Chennai residents and a large number of Syntel employees. This natural disaster prompted government authorities to issue a city-wide travel restriction, during which Syntel suspended non-essential operations at its Chennai facilities.

However, Syntel’s teams successfully executed the Company’s business continuity plans to ensure that all employees were safe and there was no impact to mission-critical activities. Syntel maintained open lines of communication with its clients during the flooding, working closely to manage all client deliverables.

Syntel would like to extend its thanks to all employees for their extra effort and dedication in restoring the Company’s Chennai operations to normal.

Based on these factors, Syntel now expects revenue in the range of $967 to $970 million for 2015. The Company’s full-year 2015 EPS outlook remains unchanged, in the range of $2.80 to $2.90.
