Amdocs records record revenue and continues to grow employee count
The software company's revenues rose in the second quarter by 8.8% to $1.16 billion
"We have hundreds of open positions," Tamar Rapaport-Dagim, COO and CFO of Amdocs, told Calcalist on Thursday. "We are continuing to adhere to the strategic plan we set out with, and remain in the upper part of the annual growth range of 10%. It is impossible to ignore what is happening at the macro level, the talks of a slowdown and the vulnerability of currencies, but we aren't seeing a slowdown at the moment.
"The company is going to generate about $650 million in cash without the campus investment. In the first nine months, we have already produced a significant part of this amount," says Rapaport-Dagim. "Today we are receiving inquiries from many employees who see Amdocs as a safe place to work. Many are looking for a place that is not short term. The change that is happening is relatively new, mainly the last two months. Many companies are downsizing. Many people who left want to come back And many people who in the past looked for other alternatives are now turning to us," Rapaport-Dagim says.
"We are growing all over the world and are trying very hard to grow in the periphery in Nazareth and Sderot, and also in Ra'anana. We are excited for the move to our new campus which we believe will happen this fall,” added Rapaport-Dagim.

The company stated that it intends to meet its revenue forecast for the coming year:
"Our solid performance in the third (current) quarter reflects strong demand for Amdocs products and services in our key strategic growth engines, including 5G monetization, the transition to the cloud, digital modernization and network automation. In addition to execution capabilities, our sales momentum continued to be strong in this quarter as well," said Shuky Sheffer, president and CEO of Amdocs Management Limited.
