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 attributable to shareholders of Genpact Limited, or adjusted income from operations;
  • Adjusted income from operations margin;
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to shareholders of Genpact Limited, or 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 information that excluded significant acquisition-related expenses, amortization of related acquired intangibles, and amortization of acquired intangibles 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 frequent 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 information 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 information 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 information that exclude stock-based compensation expense. Due to 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 such non-GAAP financial measures, Genpact’s management has adjusted other income and expenses, certain gains, losses and impairment charges attributable to equity-method investments, and gains or losses attributable to non-controlling interests because management believes that the Company’s results after taking into account these adjustments more accurately reflect the Company’s ongoing operations. 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 and income from operations 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 and amortization and impairment of acquired intangibles. 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, 2018 and 2019:
