2016 Outlook - Full Year and Third Quarter

Full Year

  • We are reaffirming our year-over-year revenue growth guidance of at least 26% after approximately 3% currency headwinds, resulting in constant currency growth of 29%. Given the various macro-economic and geo-political uncertainties, our normal visibility has been impaired and we could experience unexpected volatility over the next several quarters.

  • The full year GAAP diluted EPS will be at least $2.05, with an effective tax rate of approximately 21%;

  • The full year non-GAAP diluted EPS will be at least $2.97(*), which includes the tax effect from non-GAAP adjustments;

  • The full year weighted average share count is expected to be approximately 53.4 million diluted shares outstanding;

    (*)Under the previous reporting method, before considering tax effects on the non-GAAP adjustments, the full year non-GAAP diluted EPS was estimated to be at least $3.20.

Third Quarter

  • Revenues will be at least $295 million for the third quarter of 2016, representing a growth rate of at least 25% over third quarter 2015 revenues. This includes approximately 3% anticipated currency headwinds, meaning constant currency growth of at least 28%;
  • Third quarter 2016 GAAP diluted EPS to be at least $0.52;
  • Third quarter 2016 non-GAAP diluted EPS is expected to be at least $0.73, which includes the tax effect from non-GAAP adjustments and is based on an estimated third quarter 2016 weighted average share count of 53.6 million diluted shares outstanding.

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 condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared according to GAAP.
