Financial report summary

?
Risks
  • Our results of operations could be adversely affected by economic and political conditions globally and in particular in the markets in which our clients and operations are concentrated.
  • We face challenges related to growing our business organically as well as inorganically through acquisitions, and we may not be able to achieve our targeted growth rates.
  • Our failure to meet specified service levels or milestones required by certain of our client contracts may result in our client contracts being less profitable, potential liability for penalties or damages or reputational harm.
  • We face intense and evolving competition and significant technological advances that our service offerings must keep pace with in the rapidly changing markets we compete in.
  • We face legal, reputational and financial risks if we fail to protect client and/or Cognizant data from security breaches or cyberattacks.
  • We are subject to numerous and evolving legal and regulatory requirements and client expectations in the many jurisdictions in which we operate, and violations of, unfavorable changes in or an inability to meet such requirements or expectations could harm our business.
  • Changes in tax laws or in their interpretation or enforcement, failure by us to adapt our corporate structure and intercompany arrangements to achieve global tax efficiencies or adverse outcomes of tax audits, investigations or proceedings could have a material adverse effect on our effective tax rate, results of operations and financial condition.
  • Our earnings may be adversely affected if we change our intent not to repatriate Indian accumulated undistributed earnings.
Management Discussion
  • During the year ended December 31, 2019, revenues increased by $658 million as compared to the year ended December 31, 2018, representing growth of 4.1%, or 5.2% on a constant currency basis1. Revenues from clients added during 2019, including those related to acquisitions, were $234 million.
  • Financial Services: Revenues in our Financial Services segment increased in our Europe region primarily due to Samlink revenues, while decreasing in our North America and Rest of World regions as certain banking clients continue to transition the support of some of their legacy systems and operations in-house or to captives.
  • Healthcare: Revenues from our Healthcare segment increased in our Europe and Rest of World regions, primarily due to revenues from our life sciences clients, including revenues from our acquisition of Zenith. Revenues in our North America region were negatively impacted by mergers within the healthcare industry, the establishment of an offshore captive by a large client, the Customer Dispute and a ramp down of a client relationship in which we were a subcontractor to a third party for the purpose of delivering healthcare-related systems implementation services to local government, partially offset by growth among our life sciences clients in this region. Revenue growth among our life sciences clients was driven by demand for our digital operations services and solutions.
