Infosys continues to see strong momentum with our Cloud practice, winning over 15 deals this quarter. As a Cloud Ecosystem Integrator, Infosys set up a private Cloud environment to provide enhanced customer service for one of the largest telecom majors in APAC. 

Infosys and Microsoft signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for Cloud.

Using this solution, the client will be able to provide near real-time promotions to subscribers triggered by specific events and usage behavior. Over time, the solution will scale up to cover a larger subscriber base for the operator, increasing revenues and improving customer loyalty.

Process Innovation

As on December 31, 2011, cash and cash equivalents, including investments in available-for-sale financial assets and certificates of deposits was $3.7 bn ($3.6 bn as on December 31, 2010)

“The global currency market continues to be volatile with the Indian rupee depreciating by 11% during the quarter,” said V. Balakrishnan, Member of the Board and Chief Financial Officer. “Managing extreme currency volatility in an uncertain economic environment is going to be a challenge for the industry. We believe our focus on high-quality growth combined with our flexible financial model will position us better during these challenging times.”


 Infosys beat market forecasts with a 33 % rise in quarterly profit as a weak rupee boosted margins. All of India's software services companies will be facing a slower pace of outsourcing contracts in Q4 due to the lingering debt crisis in Europe. But, currently efforts are under way to resolve the crisis. By 1st Q of 2012-13, we can hope for some clarity on European Front.

Infosys forecast dollar revenue growth of 16.4 percent for the fiscal year to March 31, down from 17.1 percent to 19.1 percent projected in October.

Consolidated net profit of 23.72 billion rupees in Q3 FY 12, compared to 17.8 billion rupees a year earlier, is helped by an 8 percent fall in the rupee.

Infosys is now adding customers at a VERY GOOD PACE. In current Qtr, it has added 49 clients

Prior to the Board revamp, Infosys was trading very listlessly on the bourses. But, the last qtr results proved that the Board Revamp has helped Infosys beat all uncertainties – and is now energetically pursuing progress.

Though, it has its guidance slightly – it is most likely that it will  conform to earlier, higher Forecasts – based on the higher client addition taking place now.

When we listen to the Board members of INFOSYS - we find that they do exhibit a lot of confidence in their ability to perform - in future as well. Even if one segment shows some weakness, other segments are likely to more than neutralise such weak segments.

Infosys forecast dollar revenue growth of 16.4 percent for the fiscal year to March 31, down from the 17.1 percent to 19.1 percent projected in October

Despite gloomy forecasts for 2012 (calendar Year) from some research firms – it is felt that – we are still at the beginning of 2012 and already US economy is looking up well – and efforts are under way to resolve Euro crisis. So, 2012 Calendar Year may still surprise us by being much better than 2011. The Q4 FY 12 (Sep-Dec,2011) will conform to guidance for sure – but can also improve to the level of earlier, HIGHER guidance. 

The number of customer wins - especially of High value customers - has been very impressive in Q3 and the benefits of that will start flowing in future. We must remember that Infosys guidance is always conservative in Nature. Therefore, we need not be PESSIMISTIC on Q4 FY 12.

Annual EPS is forecast at Rs.147. Current MP is around Rs.2635. 52 week high price was Rs.3443.15 and the 52 week low price was Rs.2161.50.

Price Earning Ratio is hardly 17.925 at these levels. For Infosys, this PE ratio is certainly very LOW. In a normal market, Infosys can scale to much higher levels, giving good returns to medium / long term Investors.
