A majority of the revenues recorded in the third quarter were derived from the company's resale of Gateway Inc.'s products in Hong Kong and Singapore. As announced in a separate press release, Gateway will cease future sales of its products in Asia-Pacific, effectively ending this agreement. However, Vsource recently announced that it has entered into a separate, three-year contract with Gateway appointing Vsource as the exclusive service and support provider for existing Gateway customers in Asia-Pacific, beginning on November 1, 2001. Revenues are expected to exceed more than $30 million over the life of the contract.
"The third quarter of Fiscal Year 2002 was a transformational one for our company," said Phil Kelly, chairman and chief executive officer of Vsource. "We made significant progress towards our goal of an increased client base of premier Fortune 500 and Global 500 companies. Additionally, we expanded upon existing relationships, as with our arrangement with Gateway, while simultaneously engaging in discussions with future clients; discussions expected to result in additional multi-year, multi-million dollar contracts for Vsource BPO Services in the Fourth Quarter."
Kelly added: "The Gateway contract combined with the prospects of new contracts are expected to have a material positive impact on our operating performance beginning in the Fourth Quarter of FY2001. Revenue in Q4 is forecast between $6 million to $8 million, representing a sequential quarterly revenue growth of 149.9 percent to 233.3 percent, compared to the company's performance in Q3. We expect operating income in the period to improve significantly as a result."
