Infosys raises full year guidance again

LogoInfosys continues to impress with yet another strong quarterly performance. Revenue for Q321 (the three months ending 31st December) rose to $3.52b, up 5.3% sequentially and 6.6% yoy on a constant currency basis. Operating margin was unchanged qoq at 25.4%, a 350 bps improvement over the same period in the previous year.

Sales of digital services, which surpassed 50% of the company’s total quarterly turnover for the first time in Q321, continued to gather momentum increasing by 12.3% qoq and a hefty 31.3% yoy. Large deal Total Contract Value was also at an all-time high for Infosys this last quarter both coming in at $7.13b and accounting for 73% of net new business.

From and industry vertical perspective only the Manufacturing sector failed to return to yoy growth. Hi-Tech was once again the star of the Q3 show with revenues up over 17%. Financial Services and Life Sciences also had strong quarters seeing sales increase by 12% and 11% respectively.

All of the company’s geographic regions delivered yoy improvements in Q321 turnover. North American revenues, which account over for three fifths of Infosys global activities, surged ahead increasing by 8.8% yoy.  European demand, however, again proved to be least resilient to the continuing impacts of the pandemic. Sales in this territory were up by just 1.3% over the same period in the prior year.

Infosys now expects that FY21 revenue growth will be in the range of 4.5%-5% in constant currency, up from the 2%-3% view provided in October (see here). An increase in turnover of this order would be pretty good in a normal year. If delivered against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, the company’s projected yoy top line improvement will represent a noteworthy achievement.
