Revenues fall 4.9% at Deloitte International

India, Australia and Japan clock up the biggest growth rates

In a sign that the recession is still punishing the big firms Deloitte
International has posted a fall in revenues of 4.9% to $26.1bn.

The decrease comes in a dollar currency calculation. In local currencies the
firm says the results represent growth of 1%.

“Achieving positive growth in this exceptionally difficult economic
environment was the result of close attention to the needs of clients and a
strong commitment to professional excellence by our member firm professionals.
Despite the tough economy, we remain focused on our vision to be the standard of
excellence and will continue to invest in pursuit of this vision,” said Jim
Quigley, CEO of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu.

Quigley is quoted on Reuters saying: “The conversation has shifted from
whether we are going to move into a more severe recession to asking what is the
shape of the recovery.”

He added: “The ability to actually finance and complete some transactions has
been enhanced and for our professionals who assist in mergers and acquisitions,
even though the number of closed deals continues to lag, the number of deals
under consideration has started to pick up.”

In August Deloitte in the UK reported revenues had fallen 2% for the year.

Europe, Middle East, Africa saw growth of 2% and the Americas 1%. India saw
an uplift of 29.9%, Australia 11.5% and Japan 11.3%.
