GAAP net income was $324.3 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, compared to $278.8 million, or $0.92 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012. Diluted EPS on a non-GAAP basis was $1.15, compared to $0.99 in the fourth quarter of 2012. GAAP operating margin for the quarter was 19.0%. Non-GAAP operating margin was 20.7%, higher than the Company’s targeted 19-20% range. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP operating results and diluted EPS are included at the end of this release.

“We are pleased to once again deliver industry-leading revenue growth in 2013,” said Francisco D’Souza, Chief Executive Officer of Cognizant. “As we celebrate our 20 year anniversary, I would like to thank our clients who have placed their faith in us, our associates for their wonderful contribution to our growth and success, and our other stakeholders who have played a critical role in our accomplishments. Our strategy through these twenty years has been to challenge the status quo and constantly reinvent for the future, thus positioning us to help our clients build stronger businesses. We believe that we are well positioned to continue to do so in 2014 and beyond.”

“Our growth during 2013 was broad-based across our industries, geographies and service lines,” said Gordon Coburn, President of Cognizant. “This strong growth was fueled by our clients’ on-going drive to ‘run better’ for more efficient and productive operations and to ‘run different’ to create the capabilities and business models they need for future success. Our strong portfolio of services coupled with our focus on new technologies and platform-based delivery models will help clients drive meaningful change as businesses become increasingly technology intensive. We anticipate that the healthy demand environment we witnessed in 2013 will continue into 2014 and we are well positioned to capture it.”

Revenue for 2013 increased to $8.843 billion, up 20.4% from $7.346 billion for 2012.

Two-for-One Stock Split
The Board of Directors of Cognizant has declared a two-for-one stock split on its Class A common stock in the form of a 100% stock dividend. Stockholders of record as of February 21, 2014 will be entitled to one additional share of Class A common stock for each share held on the record date. The stock dividend distribution is expected to occur on or about March 7, 2014, and it is anticipated that the Company's Class A common stock will begin trading on a post-split basis the business day following the distribution date. The consolidated financial statements that accompany this press release do not reflect this stock split. All applicable references to the number of outstanding common shares and per share information have not been adjusted to reflect this stock split. 

First Quarter & Full Year 2014 Outlook
Starting in 2014, our reported non-GAAP diluted EPS will exclude net non-operating foreign currency exchange gains or losses, as well as stock-based compensation expense and acquisition-related charges. This change is not reflected in our reported 2013 quarterly or annual results above, but is reflected in our 2014 non-GAAP guidance below.

The Company is providing the following guidance:
  • First quarter 2014 revenue anticipated to be at least $2.42 billion.
  • First quarter 2014 diluted EPS on a non-GAAP basis is expected to be $1.18 (prior to impact of upcoming stock split).
  • Full year 2014 revenue expected to be at least $10.3 billion, up at least 16.5% compared to 2013.
  • Full year 2014 diluted EPS on a non-GAAP basis expected to be at least $5.02 (prior to impact of upcoming stock split). 
“The stock split underscores our confidence in the strength of the business model and in our prospects for 2014 and beyond,” said Karen McLoughlin, Chief Financial Officer. “We further strengthened our balance sheet during 2013, allowing us to continue to support our industry-leading growth, by investing in service line capabilities, industry expertise, new technologies, new delivery platforms, and expanded geographical reach.”

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release includes statements which may constitute forward-looking statements made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, the accuracy of which are necessarily subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions as to future events that may not prove to be accurate. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied include general economic conditions and the factors discussed in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Cognizant undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities law.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release includes the following measures defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission as non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (“non-GAAP diluted EPS”). These non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures should be read in conjunction with our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. The reconciliations of Cognizant’s GAAP financial measures to the corresponding non-GAAP measures should be carefully evaluated. With respect to our expectations in the “First Quarter & Full Year 2014 Outlook” section above, reconciliation of non-GAAP diluted EPS guidance to GAAP diluted EPS cannot be provided without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability and low visibility with respect to net non-operating foreign currency exchange gains or losses which are excluded from the non-GAAP diluted EPS. 

Historically, we sought to manage the company to a targeted operating margin, excluding stock-based compensation costs, of 19% to 20% of revenues.  In 2013, we continued to manage the company to the same targeted operating margin, but excluded acquisition-related charges, in addition to stock-based compensation expense, in setting our internal operating targets. Acquisition-related charges include, when applicable, amortization of purchased intangible assets included in the depreciation and amortization expense line on our condensed consolidated statements of operations, external deal costs, acquisition-related retention bonuses, integration costs, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration liabilities, charges for impairment of acquired intangible assets and other acquisition-related costs. In 2014, our non-GAAP diluted earnings per share will also exclude net non-operating foreign currency exchange gains or losses.  Management believes providing investors with an operating view consistent with how it manages the company provides enhanced transparency into the operating results of the company. For our internal management reporting and budgeting purposes, we use non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making, to evaluate period-to-period comparisons and for making comparisons of our operating results to those of our competitors. Therefore, it is our belief that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides a meaningful measure for investors to evaluate our financial performance.  Accordingly, we believe that the presentation of non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, when read in conjunction with our reported GAAP results, can provide useful supplemental information to our management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations.

A limitation of using non-GAAP measures versus financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP is that non-GAAP measures do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our operating results as determined in accordance with GAAP and exclude costs that are recurring, namely stock-based compensation and acquisition-related charges, including amortization of purchased intangibles.  In addition, other companies may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently than us, thereby limiting the usefulness of these non-GAAP financial measures as a comparative tool. We compensate for this limitation by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to allow investors to evaluate such non-GAAP financial measures with financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
