Amdocs Reports Quarterly Revenue Up Sequentially and Above Guidance

Amdocs reported that for its fiscal fourth quarter ended September 30, 2009, revenue was $707.4 million, a decrease of 14.3% from last year's fourth quarter and up 2.5% sequentially. Net income on a non-GAAP basis was $109.2 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $117.2 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008.

The revenue figure was above the $670-$690 million guidance range provided by the company.

"After experiencing a challenging fiscal year, we are pleased that our fourth quarter results demonstrated stronger-than-expected performance across our four key financial metrics: revenue, profitability, earnings and free cash flow. We believe this reflects positively on the value of Amdocs' market leading offerings and strategic position against the backdrop of steadying economic conditions. While indicators are still mixed across our market and the global economy, we are cautiously optimistic that our business is stabilizing to slightly improving, as reflected in our fiscal first quarter guidance for 2010," said Dov Baharav, chief executive officer of Amdocs Management Limited.
