(b)

In fiscal year 2011 and 2010, adjusted results include reversal of reserves previously taken against an uncertain tax position and in fiscal 2010, adjustments include an increased valuation allowance related to cash repatriations and foreign tax credits.

Fee revenue was $197.3 million in Q4 FY'11 compared to $168.7 million in Q4 FY'10, an increase of $28.6 million, or 17%, which reflects increases in fee revenue from all segments of the business driven primarily by a 15% increase in the overall number of engagements billed as well as a 2% increase in the weighted-average fee billed per engagement compared to the year-ago fiscal quarter. On a constant currency basis fee revenue increased $21.9 million, or 13%.

Compensation and benefits were $133.5 million in Q4 FY'11, an increase of $15.4 million, or 13%, compared to $118.1 million in Q4 FY'10. This increase is attributable mainly to an increase in the variable component of compensation when compared to the year-ago fiscal quarter and to a lesser extent to an increase in worldwide headcount. On a constant currency basis compensation and benefits increased $10.8 million, or 9%.

General and administrative expenses were $29.0 million in Q4 FY'11 and $28.4 million in Q4 FY'10, an increase of $0.6 million, or 2%. The increase is due primarily to an increase in bad debt provisions as a result of higher revenues and accounts receivable, an increase in premise and office expense and other general and administrative expenses, partially offset by a decrease in unrealized foreign exchange losses and a fair value contingent consideration adjustment from a prior acquisition. On a constant currency basis general and administrative expenses decreased $0.6 million, or 2%.

Operating income was $26.2 million in Q4 FY'11 compared to $13.6 million in Q4 FY'10 (or $13.7 million excluding restructuring charges in Q4 FY'10), an increase of $12.6 million (or $12.5 million excluding restructuring charges in Q4 FY'10).

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Cash and marketable securities were $369.1 million at April 30, 2011 compared to $296.5 million at April 30, 2010. Cash and marketable securities included $71.4 million and $69.0 million, held in trust for deferred compensation plans, at April 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. Cash and marketable securities increased by $72.6 million from April 30, 2010, mainly due to cash provided by operating activities partially offset by bonuses earned in FY'10 which were paid in FY'11.

Adjusted results are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude restructuring charges, net of recoveries, of $2.2 million and $23.4 million during the year ended April 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively (see attached reconciliations). There were no adjustments during the three months ended April 30, 2011 and 2010.

Fee revenue was $172.0 million in Q4 FY'11, an increase of $21.4 million, or 14%, when compared to fee revenue of $150.6 million in Q4 FY'10. Fee revenue increased in all regions due to a 12% increase in the number of executive recruitment engagements billed and a 2% increase in the weighted-average fee per engagement billed when compared to Q4 FY'10. Fee revenue increased $16.7 million on a constant currency basis.

Operating income was $30.7 million in Q4 FY'11 compared to $23.1 million in Q4 FY'10, an increase of $7.6 million. This increase is primarily attributed to the $21.4 million increase in executive recruitment fee revenue in Q4 FY'11 as compared to Q4 FY'10, which was partially offset by an $11.3 million and $2.5 million increase in compensation and benefits expense and general and administrative expenses, respectively. The increase in compensation and benefits expense primarily resulted from an increase in the variable component of compensation, and the increase in general and administrative expense was primarily driven by an increase in bad debt provisions and premise and office expense.

The total number of consultants at April 30, 2011 and 2010 was 471 and 473, respectively.

(a)

Adjusted results are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude recoveries of restructuring charges of $0.1 million and $2.8 million during year ended April 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. Adjusted results for the three months ended April 30, 2010 exclude restructuring charges of $0.1 million (see attached reconciliations). There were no adjustments during the three months ended April 30, 2011.

Fee revenue was $25.3 million in Q4 FY'11, an increase of $7.2 million, or 40%, from $18.1 million in Q4 FY'10. The improvement in fee revenue was driven by a 26% increase in the number of engagements billed, as well as an 11% increase in the weighted-average fee billed per engagement. On a constant currency basis fee revenue increased $5.2 million, or 29%.

Operating income was $1.5 million in Q4 FY'11 compared to an operating loss of $1.1 million in Q4 FY'10. Q4 FY'10 operating loss includes $1.2 million in severance costs and $0.1 million restructuring costs which primarily relates to facility lease costs; without such charges, operating income would have been $0.2 million.

Outlook

Assuming constant foreign exchange rates, stable economic conditions and steady financial markets, Q1 FY'12 fee revenue is likely to be in the range of $190 million to $205 million and diluted earnings per share is likely to be in the range of $0.30 to $0.36.
