William Maina

Thank you and welcome to Virtusa's fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2019 earnings conference call, where we'll be discussing our financial results for Virtusa's fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended March 31, 2019. On the call with me are Kris Canekeratne, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer; and Ranjan Kalia, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Certain statements made on this call that are not based on historical information are forward-looking statements, which are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. During this call, we may make, express or imply forward-looking statements relating to, among other things, Virtusa's expectations and assumptions concerning Management's forecast of financial performance; the growth of Virtusa's business; the ability of Virtusa's clients to realize benefits from the use of Virtusa's IT services and Management's plans, objectives and strategies. These statements are neither promises nor guarantees and are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond Virtusa's control, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated in these forward-looking statements. Existing and prospective investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. Virtusa undertakes no obligation to update or revise the information disclosed during this call, whether as a result of new information, future events or circumstances or otherwise.

Other statements on this call also include certain non-GAAP financial information as defined by the SEC. We present constant currency revenue to provide a framework for assessing how our revenue performed, excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations. We provide non-GAAP adjusted operating income, non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP earnings per share, which we believe provide insight into the operational performance for our business. Reconciliations of non-GAAP to GAAP measures are included in today's earnings press release and data sheet, which can be found on the Investor Relations page of our website. We also present a reconciliation of cash, cash equivalent, short-term and long-term investments that we believe provides insight to our total cash position and overall liquidity. Please note that a supplemental data presentation to our fiscal fourth quarter results has also been posted to our IR website. For additional disclosures regarding these and other risk factors faced by Virtusa, please see the disclosures contained in Virtusa's public filings with the SEC and in our earnings press release.

With that, I'd like to turn the call over to Kris. Kris?
