"We had a strong start to the year, with first quarter revenue, adjusted operating income margin, adjusted diluted EPS, and cash flow all exceeding our expectations," said "Tiger" Tyagarajan, Genpact's president and CEO. "The growing need of enterprises to leverage digital technologies and cloud-based analytics is creating a high demand for our solutions. These operations straddle multiple functions and buying centers opening new parts of our expanding addressable market. While I am pleased with the continued momentum we are seeing across our business, our hearts, minds and efforts are focused on supporting our teams in India and the Philippines who are being hit very hard by COVID-19 while ensuring continued services to our clients. We appreciate the outpouring of support we have received from our clients during this difficult time."

Key Financial Results – First Quarter 2021

  • Total revenue was $946 million, up 2.5% year-over-year (1% on a constant currency basis).1

  • Revenue from Global Clients was $853 million, up 6%2 year-over-year (5% on a constant currency basis)1,2 representing 90% of total revenue, including $9 million of revenue from certain GE-divested businesses that is now included in Global Client revenue. Excluding the revenue from such GE-divested businesses, revenue from Global Clients increased 5% year over year (4% on a constant currency basis)1.

  • Revenue from GE was $93 million, down 24% year-over-year, representing 10% of total revenue. This excludes $9 million of revenue from certain GE-divested businesses that is now included as Global Client revenue. If the revenue from these GE-divested businesses had been counted as GE revenue in the first quarter of 2021, revenue from GE would have decreased 16% year-over-year.

  • Net income was $91 million, up 7% year-over-year, with a corresponding margin of 9.6%.

  • Income from operations was $128 million, up 16% year-over-year, with a corresponding margin of 13.5%. Adjusted income from operations was $163 million, up 20% year-over-year, with a corresponding margin of 17.2%.4

  • Diluted earnings per share was $0.47, up 7% year-over-year, and adjusted diluted earnings per share3 was $0.59, up 11% year-over-year.

  • Cash generated from operations was $77 million, compared to $19 million utilized in the first quarter of 2020.

  • Genpact issued $350 million principal amount of 1.75% senior unsecured notes due April 2026 during the quarter.

  • Genpact repurchased approximately 3.3 million of its common shares during the quarter for total consideration of approximately $134 million at an average price per share of $40.68.

Full Year 2021 Outlook

Genpact continues to expect:

  • Total revenue for the full year of $3.93 to $3.99 billion, up 6.0% to 7.5%, or 5.0% to 6.5% on a constant currency basis.1

  • Adjusted income from operations margin5 of approximately 16.0%.

Genpact now expects:

  • Global Client revenue growth in the range of 9.0% to 11.0%, or 8.0% to 10.0% on a constant currency basis,1 increased from the prior outlook of 8.0% to 10.0%, or 7.0% to 9.0% on a constant currency basis,1 due to the revenue from certain GE-divested businesses that is now classified as Global Client revenue.

  • Adjusted diluted EPS6 of $2.27 to $2.30, increased from the prior outlook of $2.26 to $2.29.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release includes the following non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Adjusted income from operations;

  • Adjusted income from operations margin;

  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share; and

  • Revenue growth on a constant currency basis.

These non-GAAP financial 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 financial measures used by other companies. Accordingly, these non-GAAP financial measures, the financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliations of Genpact's GAAP financial statements to such non-GAAP financial measures should be carefully evaluated.

Prior to July 2012, Genpact's management used financial statements that excluded significant acquisition-related expenses, amortization of related acquired intangibles, and amortization of acquired intangibles recorded at the company's formation in 2004 for its internal management reporting, budgeting and decision-making purposes, including comparing Genpact's operating results to that of its competitors. However, considering Genpact's acquisitions of varying scale and size, and the difficulty in predicting expenses relating to acquisitions and the amortization of acquired intangibles thereof, since July 2012 Genpact's management has used financial statements that exclude all acquisition-related expenses and amortization of acquired intangibles for its internal management reporting, budgeting and decision-making purposes, including comparing Genpact's operating results to those of its competitors. For the same reasons, since April 2016 Genpact's management has excluded the impairment of acquired intangible assets from the financial statements it uses for internal management purposes. Acquisition-related expenses are excluded in the period in which an acquisition is consummated.

Genpact's management also uses financial statements that exclude stock-based compensation expense. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types that companies can use when adopting ASC 718 "Compensation-Stock Compensation," Genpact's management believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude such expenses allows investors to make additional comparisons between Genpact's operating results and those of other companies. Additionally, in its calculations of non-GAAP financial measures, Genpact's management has adjusted foreign exchange gains and losses, interest income and expense and income tax expenses from GAAP net income, and other income and expenses, and certain gains, losses and impairment charges attributable to equity-method investments from GAAP income from operations, because management believes that the Company's results after taking into account these adjustments more accurately reflect the Company's ongoing operations. In its calculations of adjusted diluted earnings per share, Genpact's management adds back adjusted stock-based compensation expense, amortization and impairment of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related expenses and restructuring expenses and the related tax impact of such adjustments from GAAP diluted earnings per share. For the purpose of calculating adjusted diluted earnings per share, the combined current and deferred tax effect is determined by multiplying each pre-tax adjustment by the applicable statutory income tax rate.

Genpact's management provides information about revenues on a constant currency basis so that the revenues may be viewed without the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations compared to prior fiscal periods, thereby facilitating period-to-period comparisons of the Company's true business performance. Revenue growth on a constant currency basis is calculated by restating current-period activity using the prior fiscal period's foreign currency exchange rates adjusted for hedging gains/losses in such period.

Accordingly, Genpact believes that the presentation of adjusted income from operations, adjusted income from operations margin, adjusted diluted earnings per share and revenue growth on a constant currency basis, when read in conjunction with the Company's reported results, can provide useful supplemental information to investors and management regarding financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations.

A limitation of using adjusted income from operations and adjusted income from operations margin versus income from operations, income from operations margin, net income and net income margin calculated in accordance with GAAP is that these non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain recurring costs and certain other charges, namely stock-based compensation expense and amortization and impairment of acquired intangible assets. Management compensates for this limitation by providing specific information on the GAAP amounts excluded from adjusted income from operations and adjusted income from operations margin.

The following tables show the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2021:
