C onsolidated revenues for the FYE March 31, 2014 amounted to US$903.6 mn, an increase of 3.8% y-o-y, with yet another year of positive revenue dynamics attributable to the Group mostly driven by revenue growth in Software Development segment. Consolidated revenues for the fourth quarter of FYE March 31, 2014 amounted to US$236.7 mn, up by 19.3% y-o-y.

IT Services segment revenues for the FYE March 31, 2014 amounted to US$429.8 mn, a decline of 11.2% y-o-y; revenues expressed in RUB terms totalled 14,289 mn, a decrease of 5.1 % y-o-y. The segment's revenues for the fourth quarter amounted to US$110.6 mn, an increase of 18.4% y-o-y in US$ terms and 26.5% in RUB terms respectively. RUB depreciation against USD in 4Q FYE 2014 vs. a year ago significantly affected results of the segment in the quarter as well as full year results. Moreover, a significant increase of revenues in the segment in the fourth quarter is explained by low base effect of the previous year.

The net cash position stands at US$26.1 mn, an increase of US$67.2 mn y-o-y and decrease of US$20.4 mn q-o-q.

Anatoly Karachinsky , President of IBS Group, commented :

"We have noticed a significant transformation of the demand for corporate solutions on the Russian IT market which is driven by emerging of new technological philosophy of the IT-support by corporations. The changes are influenced by implementation of such technologies as Cloud solutions, mobile devices, and big data. Moreover, dynamics of the domestic IT market is very much linked to the complex situation in the Russian economy. These factors forced us to begin a deep reorganization of our IT Services segment aiming at cost cutting and efficiency gains. We anticipate that this reorganization will take from 12 to 24 months to complete.

Our Software Development segment further broaden its ties with the global customers adding a number of high potential accounts to its portfolio over the course of the year. Our strategy of geographical, industrial and client diversification coupled with investments in proprietary solutions proved to be successful as segment demonstrated another year of solid growth."
