New York, United States & Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
WNS (Holdings) Limited (WNS) (NYSE: WNS), a leading provider of global Business Process Management (BPM) services, today announced results for the fiscal 2021 third quarter ended December 31, 2020.
 
Highlights – Fiscal 2021 Third Quarter:

Revenue in the third quarter was $238.4 million, representing a 0.3% decrease versus Q3 of last year and a 7.1% increase from the previous quarter. Revenue less repair payments* in the third quarter was $224.5 million, a decrease of 1.6% year-over-year and an increase of 4.7% sequentially. Excluding exchange rate impacts, constant currency revenue less repair payments* in the fiscal third quarter was down 2.6% versus Q3 of last year and up 3.5% sequentially. Year-over-year, fiscal Q3 revenue was adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic including lower volume requirements from certain clients and service delivery constraints resulting from the transition to a “work from home” delivery model. These headwinds more than offset the year-over-year revenue growth driven by new client additions, the expansion of existing relationships, and currency movements net of hedging. Sequentially, revenue improvement was driven by broad-based revenue growth across verticals, services and geographies, and currency movements net of hedging.
 
Profit in the fiscal third quarter was $31.0 million, as compared to $30.9 million in Q3 of last year and $29.2 million in the previous quarter. Year-over-year, profit improvement was the result of reductions in travel, facility-related and discretionary expenditures, favorable currency movements net of hedging, and lower amortization of intangible expense.  These benefits more than offset headwinds from the COVID-19 pandemic including revenue reductions and increased business continuity costs. In addition, the company recorded a higher effective tax rate versus last year, driven by the geographic mix of profit. Sequentially, Q3 profit increased as a result of revenue improvement, currency movements net of hedging, and a lower effective tax rate. These benefits more than offset headwinds from the $4.0 million one-time reversal of our corporate leave provision in Q2 and increased share-based compensation expense in Q3.

* See “About Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the reconciliations of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to our GAAP operating results at the end of this release.    

Adjusted net income (ANI)* in Q3 was $41.0 million, up $0.1 million as compared to Q3 of last year and up $3.2 million from the previous quarter. Explanations for the ANI* movements on a year-over-year and sequential basis are the same as described for GAAP profit above with the exception of amortization of intangible expenses, share-based compensation costs and associated tax impacts, which are excluded from ANI*.
 
From a balance sheet perspective, WNS ended Q3 with $390.0 million in cash and investments and $25.1 million of debt. In the third quarter, the company generated $56.3 million in cash from operations and incurred $8.0 million in capital expenditures. In Q3, WNS repurchased 405,284 ADSs at an average price of $67.67 per ADS, which impacted Q3 cash by $27.4 million dollars. Third quarter days sales outstanding were 34 days, as compared to 30 days reported in Q3 of last year and 34 days in the previous quarter. The year-over-year increase in DSO is the result of payment delays and payment term concessions relating to COVID-19.
 
“Our fiscal third quarter results continue to demonstrate the strategic importance of our BPM solutions and resilience of the WNS business model. In Q3, we were able to sequentially grow top line, deliver healthy margins, and generate strong cash flow in the midst of a global pandemic,” said Keshav Murugesh, WNS’s Chief Executive Officer. “During the third quarter, we also re-initiated global hiring in support of both signed new business and a healthy sales pipeline. Looking forward, while we continue to expect some COVID-related volatility in our business over the next few quarters, we believe the long-term BPM market opportunity continues to improve. Driven by disruption and the need for “hyperautomation”, clients are looking to WNS to help them transform their business models and improve competitive positioning. WNS will continue to focus on superior execution and investing in the breadth and depth of our capabilities to ensure we deliver sustainable value to all of our key stakeholders.”
 
COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on the global economy, our clients’ businesses, and on WNS’s operations, financials, and visibility. Revenue has been pressured by lower client volumes, delays in new business ramps, client concessions, and facility lockdowns which impact service delivery. WNS is actively working to manage our clients’ changing requirements, adapt our service delivery models, ensure data security, and manage costs. In the fiscal third quarter, the company delivered 98% of our clients’ requirements, the same as reported in Q2. Going forward, impacts to our financial performance will be a function of how long the COVID-19 pandemic lasts on a global basis, and how long it takes our clients’ businesses to stabilize and recover.
 
Fiscal 2021 Guidance

WNS is updating guidance for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2021 as follows:
 
  • Revenue less repair payments* is expected to be between $860 million and $870 million, down from $896.2 million in fiscal 2020. Guidance assumes an average GBP to USD exchange rate of 1.35 for the remainder of fiscal 2021.
  • ANI* is expected to range between $136 million and $142 million versus $161.4 million in fiscal 2020. Guidance assumes an average USD to INR exchange rate of 73.50 for the remainder of fiscal 2021.
  • Based on a diluted share count of 52.1 million shares, the company expects adjusted diluted earnings* per ADS to be in the range of $2.61 to $2.73 versus $3.10 in fiscal 2020.

“The company has updated our forecast for fiscal 2021 based on current visibility levels and exchange rates,” said Sanjay Puria, WNS’s Chief Financial Officer. “Our guidance for the full year reflects a reduction in revenue less repair payments* of -4% to -3% on both a reported and constant currency* basis. We currently have over 99% visibility to the midpoint of the range, consistent with January guidance in previous years.”

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The financial information in this release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures that we believe more accurately reflect our core operating performance. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to our GAAP operating results are included below. A more detailed discussion of our GAAP results is contained in “Part I –Item 5. Operating and Financial Review and Prospects” in our annual report on Form 20-F filed with the SEC on May 1, 2020.
 
For financial statement reporting purposes, WNS has two reportable segments: WNS Global BPM and WNS Auto Claims BPM. Revenue less repair payments is a non-GAAP financial measure that is calculated as (a) revenue less (b) in the auto claims business, payments to repair centers for “fault” repair cases where WNS acts as the principal in its dealings with the third party repair centers and its clients. WNS believes that revenue less repair payments for “fault” repairs reflects more accurately the value addition of the business process management services that it directly provides to its clients. For more details, please see the discussion in “Part I – Item 5. Operating and Financial Review and Prospects – Overview” in our annual report on Form 20-F filed with the SEC on May 1, 2020.
 
Constant currency revenue less repair payments is a non-GAAP financial measure. We present constant currency revenue less repair payments so that revenue less repair payments may be viewed without the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, thereby facilitating period-to-period comparisons of business performance. Constant currency revenue less repair payments is presented by recalculating prior period’s revenue less repair payments denominated in currencies other than in US dollars using the foreign exchange rate used for the latest period, without taking into account the impact of hedging gains/losses. Our non-US dollar denominated revenues include, but are not limited to, revenues denominated in pound sterling, South African rand, Australian dollar and Euro.
 
WNS also presents or discusses (1) adjusted operating margin, which refers to adjusted operating profit (calculated as operating profit / (loss) excluding goodwill impairment, share-based expense and amortization of intangible assets) as a percentage of revenue less repair payments, (2) ANI, which is calculated as profit excluding goodwill impairment, share-based expense and amortization of intangible assets and including the tax effect thereon, (3) Adjusted net income margin, which refers to ANI as a percentage of revenue less repair payments, (4) net cash, which refers to cash and cash equivalents plus investments less long-term debt (including the current portion) and other non-GAAP financial measures included in this release as supplemental measures of its performance. WNS presents these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes they assist investors in comparing its performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that are non-recurring in nature and those it believes are not indicative of its core operating performance. In addition, it uses these non-GAAP financial measures (i) as a factor in evaluating management’s performance when determining incentive compensation and (ii) to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies. These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for WNS’s financial results prepared in accordance with IFRS.
 
The company is not able to provide our forward-looking GAAP revenue, profit and earnings per ADS without unreasonable efforts for a number of reasons, including our inability to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the payments to repair centers, our future share-based compensation expense under IFRS 2 (Share Based payments), amortization of intangibles associated with future acquisitions, goodwill impairment and currency fluctuations. As a result, any attempt to provide a reconciliation of the forward-looking GAAP financial measures (revenue, profit, earnings per ADS) to our forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures (revenue less repair payments*, ANI* and Adjusted diluted earnings* per ADS, respectively) would imply a degree of likelihood that we do not believe is reasonable.

(1) The company applies GAAP methodologies in computing the tax impact on its non-GAAP ANI adjustments (including amortization of intangible assets and share-based compensation expense). The company’s non-GAAP tax expense is generally higher than its GAAP tax expense if the income subject to taxes is higher considering the effect of the items excluded from GAAP profit to arrive at non-GAAP profit.
