PricewaterhouseCoopers* Posts FY2009 Global Revenues of US$26.2 Billion

            Total Revenues Rise At Constant Exchange Rate

        Results Demonstrate Resilience of PwC Member Firms

   Competitive Pricing Helps to Grow Market Share in Many Markets

 Asia, South and Central America, Middle East and Africa Perform Well
                           in Tough Economy

NEW YORK, Oct. 6, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PricewaterhouseCoopers today
disclosed that total gross revenues from operations for its worldwide network
of member firms rose marginally at constant exchange rates for the fiscal year
ended 30 June 2009, a resilient performance in consistently tough economic
circumstances. However, adjusted for foreign exchange fluctuations,
particularly the strengthening of the U.S. dollar, PwC's FY2009 network
revenues were US$26.2 billion, a decline of 7.1 per cent from the previous
12-month period. 

Revenues continued to grow for PwC's core Assurance services, where revenues of
US$13.1 billion were up by 2 per cent despite the impact of the recession,
reflecting both the market-leading strength of the business and its continued
focus on improved customer service and very competitive pricing. 

Tax revenues remained steady at US$6.9 billion. Growth in revenues from this
area was impacted by the worldwide decline in corporate deals and restructuring

Given the cyclical nature of its business, PwC's Advisory operations were
hardest hit by the recession. However in the circumstances they continued to
hold up well with revenues of US$6.1 billion, down by 3 per cent. This fall in
revenues was driven by the sharp drop off in transactions and initial public
offerings, as well as by cuts in discretionary spending by clients. The drop
was partially offset by a rise in restructuring work. 

'The past 12 months have been challenging for our network, with most PwC member
firms facing tough economic conditions. While PwC's results for FY 2009 are not
as good as we would have liked, they have held up well in the circumstances,'
said PwC Global Chairman Dennis M. Nally. 'In addition the combination of first
rate customer service and very competitive pricing has allowed us to increase
our market share in many of our markets around the world. 

'The ability of so many PwC member firms to successfully sustain their business
and their people through this difficult period provides us with a strong
platform from which to serve clients in the recovery and to continue to invest
in our own growth. While we cut our costs substantially, the PwC network also
hired about 30,000 new people and increased its total workforce to more than
163,000 demonstrating a commitment to attracting the right people to serve
clients around the world.' 

'PricewaterhouseCoopers continues to have the best and strongest network to
help clients succeed. We see opportunities emerging in the recovery in
industries such as healthcare, financial services and infrastructure, and we
are prepared to help clients capitalise on them by anticipating their needs and
providing a quality of service that sets us apart. Our strategy is to excel in
every marketplace in which we compete by delivering a distinctive PwC
Experience to our clients and to our own people.' 

PwC member firms in some regions of the world were less affected by the
slumping global economy than others. There were continuing strong results from
South and Central America, which saw revenues increase by 13.3 per cent, while
the Middle East and Africa produced revenue growth of 9.1 per cent. Asia saw
revenues grow by 5.4 per cent, lower growth than last year, but a continuing
indication of the growing contribution of PwC's member firms in Asia to the
network. However, revenues from PwC member firms in Central and Eastern Europe,
North America and Western Europe declined. 

Revenue growth was high in a number of PwC member firms around the world, with
particularly good results in Japan, Russia, Spain, Sweden and Canada. 'The
ability of those firms and others across the PwC network to sustain their
operations without major cutbacks in personnel confirms PwC's rank as the
strongest professional services organisation, well positioned and poised to
capitalise on opportunities presented in the coming turnaround,' added Mr
