Management Discussion
  • Consolidated revenues increased $95.5 million, or 5.9%, in 2020 from 2019.
  • The increase in Americas’ revenues was due to higher volumes from existing clients of $137.5 million and new clients of $38.2 million, partially offset by end-of-life client programs of $90.4 million primarily in the communications vertical and an unfavorable foreign currency impact of $1.0 million. Revenues from our offshore operations represented 43.3% of Americas’ revenues in 2020, compared to 42.7% for the comparable period in 2019.
  • The increase in EMEA’s revenues was due to new clients of $14.4 million, higher volumes from existing clients of $5.5 million and a favorable foreign currency impact of $3.8 million, partially offset by end-of-life client programs of $12.5 million primarily in the communications and other verticals.
