They serve several industries, including travel, insurance, financial services, healthcare, professional services, manufacturing, distribution and retail. They also provide essential corporate functions, such as finance and accounting, human resources research and analytics. " (8/3/2017)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "WNS remains a growth story. The pipeline remains healthy, in our view, with promising recent client additions. Industry penetration rates remain low. We expect a high-single-to-low-double-digit industry growth rate over the medium term. WNS’s initial constant currency, organic growth rate guidance at the midpoint calls for 10% growth (vs. +8% for industry) with 90% visibility. Capability-focused acquisitions, including those of HealthHelp and Denali, are expected to add 12% y/y to growth in FY18 (ending March 2018). We believe the integration is off to a good start and that there is a bias to the upside. We note the likelihood of ongoing share repurchases." (6/29/2017)
