Sharekhan’s research report on Infosys

Strong beat on EBIT margin at 21.5% (up 150 bps q-o-q) led by utilisation, cost optimisation, pyramiding and currency benefit. TCV deal wins healthy at $2.7 bn (highest in last 7 quarters). However, CC revenue growth of 4% q-o-q was below our estimate of 4.6% q-o-q growth. Management raised its FY23 revenue growth guidance range from 14-16% to 15-16% reflecting optimism due to strong deal momentum despite seasonal weakness in the quarter ahead and given the macro headwinds. However, lowered upper end of its EBIT margin guidance to 21%-22% versus 21-23% earlier. The management cited that there is weakness in some pockets such as mortgages, discretionary retail, telecom, and Hi-tech segments. The company announced an open market buyback of Rs 9300 crore, with maximum price of Rs. 1,850. Buyback would support the stock performance in near term amid market volatility.


We maintain a Buy rating on Infosys with an unchanged PT of Rs. 1,730, given strong deal momentum and the management’s optimism on its capabilities and preparedness to address diverse clients’ needs of transformation as well as on cost optimisation.
