Global professional services provider, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has reported a 7% growth in revenue for the full-year period that ended on June 3oth, 2019. The company specifically earned a total of $42.4 billion from its operations from across six regions namely: the Americas, Western Europe, Central & Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa, Australasia & Pacific, and Asia.
Note that during the comparable period in 2018, the company’s global operations realised a total of $40.6 billion.
Majority of the revenue in FY 2019 was made from the Americas ($17.8 billion) and Western Europe ($14.1 billion). Meanwhile, Central and Eastern Europe generated the least amount of money for PwC at $940 million. African and Middle Eastern operations accounted for $1.6 billion out of the total revenue reported for the period under review. Note that PwC Nigeria falls right under here.
