Accenture raises business outlook for fiscal 2021; now expects full-year revenue growth of 4% to 6% in local currency; GAAP EPS of $8.17 to $8.40; adjusted EPS of $8.02 to $8.25; and free cash flow of $6.0 billion to $6.5 billion.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has created a significant amount of volatility, uncertainty, and economic disruption.
