Ranjan Kalia, Chief Financial Officer of Virtusa, said, “First quarter results were in line with our expectations as the combined company executed against our Q1 plan. Our revised fiscal 2017 guidance reflects isolated delays in decision making and new project starts across our Insurance, Telecom and Banking clients, as well as increased currency headwinds from a weaker British Pound.”
