    • In addition to missing FQ4 revenue estimates (while beating on EPS), Amdocs (NASDAQ:DOX) is guiding for FQ1 revenue of $905M-$945M and EPS of $0.82-$0.88, below a consensus of $953.4M and $0.90. The outlook is said to reflect "expectations regarding macro and industry specific risks and various uncertainties resulting from current and potential customer consolidation activity in North America."
    • Also: Amdocs is guiding for FY16 (ends Sep. '16) EPS growth of 3.5%-7.5%. That implies a range of $3.50-$3.63, below a $3.67 consensus. CEO Eli Gelman: "This outlook takes into consideration many macro and industry specific risks and unknowns, including uncertainties related to AT&T's discretionary spending plans..."
    • Along with the numbers, Amdocs states it's hiking its quarterly dividend by $0.025 to $0.195/share, provided shareholders approve at the February annual meeting. At current levels, the new dividend would spell a 1.4% yield.
    • Gelman insists the telecom customer support/billing software firm's win rate remained strong across all regions in FY15. Major deals were struck in FQ4 with Vodafone UK, KT, Singtel, and Bell Canada. 12-month backlog rose by $70M Q/Q and $80M Y/Y to $3.08B.
    • FQ4 details: Weak North American sales weighed on results: They fell 5% Y/Y to $626.6M. With the help of the Comverse deal, European sales rose 9% to $115.3M, and rest of world sales 40% to $184.9M. Costs/expenses rose 3% Y/Y to $769.9M (even with revenue growth). EPS was lifted by $182M worth of buybacks. Amdocs ended FQ4 with $1.35B in cash, and $220M in short-term financing arrangements.
    • Peer CSG Systems (NASDAQ:CSGS) is following Amdocs lower.
