Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Revenues increased 7% to $1.43 billion in the third quarter of 2019, as compared to $1.34 billion in the same period of 2018. This increase was primarily driven by a $51 million increase in professional services revenue due to growth in implementation activity, and growth in licensed software revenue of $15 million as a result of continued demand for our solutions. Refer to Note (2) of the notes to condensed consolidated financial statements for further information regarding revenues disaggregated by our business models.
  • Backlog, which reflects contracted revenue that has not yet been recognized as revenue, was $13.31 billion in the third quarter of 2019, compared to $14.70 billion in the same period of 2018. This decrease was primarily driven by the termination of certain client contracts, discussed further below. We expect to recognize 31% of our backlog as revenue over the next 12 months.
  • We believe that backlog may not necessarily be a comprehensive indicator of future revenue as certain of our arrangements may be canceled (or conversely renewed) at our clients' option, thus contract consideration related to such cancellable periods has been excluded from our calculation of backlog. However, historically our experience has been that such cancellation provisions are rarely exercised. We expect to recognize $882 million of revenue over the next 12 months under currently executed contracts related to such cancellable periods, which is not included in our calculation of backlog.
