Consolidated revenues for the second quarter of FYE March 31, 2013 amounted to US$212.6 mn, an increase of 18.1% y-o-y driven by solid performance in both segments. Consolidated revenues for the first half of FYE March 31, 2013 came to US$378 mn, an increase of 6.0%   y-o-y.

IT Services segment revenues for the first half of FYE March 31, 2013 amounted to US$200.8 mn, representing an increase of 1.8% y-o-y. Ruble revenues for the same period totaled RUB 6,376.8 mn, up 12.4% y-o-y. OOO Borlas Group's revenues, disposed in February 2012, amounted US$18.9 mn in the first half of FYE March 31, 2012. Adjusted to account for the disposal of OOO Borlas Group, the segment's revenues in Russian rubles increased by 24.4% y-o-y in the first half of FYE March 31, 2013. The increased number of IT infrastructure projects was the key driver behind revenue growth in the segment during the reported period.

The Group's total headcount amounted to 8,372 employees, an increase of 7.1% y-o-y, mainly due to the expansion of delivery centers in the software development segment. In the IT Services segment, we disposed Expertek in July 2012 (former IT Services subsidiary focused on niche solutions for retail business) which further decreased the number of IT professionals q-o-q to 2,456. No significant change in the segment's number of employees is expected before the end of the fiscal year. In the Software Development segment, the number of employees amounted to 5,568, an increase of 12.8% y-o-y, we expect headcount to resume growth by the end of the fiscal year.

The Group's total debt decreased by US$4.3 mn y-o-y to US$67.4 mn. Over the last quarter the Group's debt position increased by US$5.0 mn, and the net debt position increased by US$12.8 mn - both are attributable to the short-term seasonal working capital financing of IT Services segment.

Full year revenues outlook

We have updated our outlook for the Group's consolidated revenues growth, which is now expected to be in the range of 9-13% in USD terms. In the IT Services segment revenues growth is expected to be in the range of 6-10% in US$ terms, and we add revenues growth outlook for the segment in ruble Russian terms to be in the range of 13-17%. In the Software Development segment we expect revenues growth to be in the range of 16-21% in US$ terms.

Anatoly Karachinsky, President of IBS Group commented,

"IBS Group has met its targets and performed according to expectations in the preliminary forecasts for the first half of the year. As such, we can view these results as positive. This year has brought robust growth in the IT Services segment. Turnover in rubles for the segment has grown by more than 24% y-o-y, after factoring in the disposal of part of the business last year. The growth in this segment mainly stems from our success in bringing new solutions to the Russian market during implementation of IT infrastructure projects, including cloud technologies and Big Data. The Software Development segment has also grown rapidly owing to our continuing success in financial and automotive verticals. Overall, the outcomes have been affected by the global economic instability, especially fluctuations in the currency markets.  This is reflected in our updated growth forecasts of 9-13% for the Group's turnover in the current financial year."
