“Our sales funnels have been fully integrated and we now have very good visibility on billions of dollars of opportunities across our key offerings and the expanded markets we now cover. Our backlog at the end of the quarter was $18.3 billion, up from $13.6 billion in the year ago period. As we did with previous acquisitions, while executing the cost side of our strategic plan, we have begun intensifying our focus on increasing our recurring revenue, with a special emphasis on our managed services offering. As a point of reference, when we acquired AMS in 2004, our recurring revenue in the U.S. market was approximately 5 percent. Today, it is in excess of 50 percent. To lead this global initiative, Doug McCuaig, President, Canada, has been appointed Executive Vice-President, Global Client Transformation Services, reporting to me. In his new role, Doug will work with the SBU leaders to identify, shape and close managed services opportunities, leveraging the many new and collective client relationships arising from our merger. George Schindler, currently President, U.S., will assume full responsibility for the U.S. and Canada operations. I’m confident that these leadership adjustments will have a positive impact on our business going forward.”
