  • Infosys' Q4 Revenues Down 5% At Rs 8852 Crores

    India's second largest software services provider Infosys reported a 27% year-on-year growth in net profit for the fourth quarter, but forecast much lower-than-expected US dollar revenue growth for FY13, warning the year remained challenging due to slower growth in the global economy.

    It reported a net profit of Rs 2,316 crore for the January-March quarter, up 27.4% year-on-year, but down 2.4% sequentially. Revenue for the three-month period was up 22.1% from a year ago at Rs 8,852 crore. Revenue quarter-on-quarter was down 4.8% in Jan-March, which is typically a muted quarter for IT exporters.

    Infosys' fourth quarter EBIT margin was at 29.9%, down from 31.2% from the third quarter.

    Infosys expects a revenue growth of 8-10% to USD 7,553-7,692 million for the current fiscal year. Its earnings per American depository share are likely to grow 4-5.7% year-on-year to USD 3.12-3.17 for the full year.

  • Infosys Sees FY13 Revenue Up 8-10%

    Infosys Ltd, India's second-largest software services exporter, expects revenue to rise 8 to 10 percent in the fiscal year ending March 2013 to $7.6 to $7.7 billion, the company said on Friday.

    Bangalore-based Infosys said that the year ahead looks challenging for the IT services industry, adding that volatility in the global currency market continues to be a challenge.

    Infosys said consolidated net profit for the fiscal fourth quarter ended March 31 rose to 23.16 billion rupees from 18.18 billion rupees a year earlier, in line with forecasts.

  • Infosys Q4 Profit Rises 27.4%, Meets Forecast

    Infosys Ltd, India's second-largest software services exporter, reported a 27.4 percent rise in quarterly net profit, meeting forecast, after customers ramped up orders to cut operational costs.

    Bangalore-based Infosys said on Friday consolidated net profit for the fiscal fourth quarter ended March 31 rose to 23.16 billion rupees from 18.18 billion rupees a year earlier.

    Infosys and its bigger rival Tata Consultancy Services Ltd , part of India's $100 billion information technology and back-office services outsourcing sector, have benefited from cost-conscious customers bumping up demand.

    An uncertain global economy and rising U.S. rhetoric against shipping of jobs to low-cost locations ahead of the November presidential election are, however, concerns for the sector that gets half its revenue from the world's largest economy.

    Tata Consultancy, Infosys and No. 3 exporter Wipro are also facing increased competition from bigger global rivals such as IBM and Accenture
