Net revenues are expected to be between $2.90 billion and $2.95 billion, slightly above analysts' current consensus estimate of $2.87 billion.
While Accenture called its own performance for the first quarter of 2003 "solid," the company said it is still cautious about the business outlook "because the economic and geopolitical climate remains unstable."
