Key Findings & Highlights
Seventy two vendors tracked by NelsonHall reported financial results for calendar Q3 2015, the period ending September 30, 2015. This quarter's "Ones-to-Watch" report monitors the financials for all 72 of these vendors, with 59 vendors providing both revenue growth and earnings before profit and tax (EBIT) for the period. Where the vendor's reporting period does not precisely match these dates, the dates for the closest reporting period were used, with a minimum of 55 days overlap.
Given the importance of financial stability, "Ones-to-Watch" scoring is generated on the basis of five points for each percentage of operating margin achieved (based on earnings before interest and tax), and one point for each percentage revenue growth. Negative points are scored on a similar basis for losses and decreases in revenues.
In terms of vendor categories, the Indian services vendors lead, though the pure play BPO services vendors made significant progress in Q3 2015.
