KPMG International announced record-high combined revenues of US$23.03 billion for the fiscal year ending 30 September 2012, representing a 4.4% increase over the previous year in local currency terms. When adjusted to US dollars, revenues increased by 1.4%, reflecting the relative strength of the US dollar.
At a time of ongoing global economic challenges, the growth reflects our continued strategic focus on investments in emerging markets and key service areas, as well as aggressive recruitment of top talent. In the latest Universum rankings, business students from leading universities around the world voted KPMG as one of the most attractive employers for the third consecutive year, ranking second overall and highest among the Big 4 firms.
Michael J. Andrew, Chairman of KPMG International, commented:"2012 was a year of two distinct halves; with growth strongest at 6.4% in the first six months of the year and relatively weaker growth of 2.1% in the six months to September. Growing our business against such a challenging economic backdrop is testament to the quality of our people and the strength of their relationships with clients."
