FInancial Performance




Budget cuts, decision-making delays, and softness in the BFSI sector were some of the headwinds that the IT sector experienced during the quarter. Together with TCS, these factors also had an impact on Infosys's performance, which resulted in a disappointing quarter for the company. However, we had not anticipated negative growth. On a quarter-over-quarter basis, revenue growth was cc negative 3.2%, mostly as a result of projects being cancelled and the US region's difficulties (particularly in the BFSI vertical). The company's margin came in at 21%, 50 bps lower than the prior quarter, as a result of decision-making being delayed and discretionary spending being dialled down (according to management, this had a one-time impact). 

As a result of the aforementioned issues, we anticipate that there will be near- to medium-term headwinds in the sector. However, management has also provided lower growth and margin guidance for FY24, which is a definite sign of the impending slowdown in IT budgets (especially from the BFSI vertical side). PE 18x FY25E EPS.
