Ashis Biswas expects that the size of the Infosys buyback could be between Rs 10,000-12,000 cr, and at a price of Rs 1650- Rs 1670 apiece.
Ashis says that Infosys is expanding its lead over the competition in handling clients' cloud journeys and assisting in big deal wins. Infosys enjoys a differentiator in cloud migration roadmaps and managing data, processes, and applications in the cloud. IT services can gain value from promoting seamless integrations while retaining hybrid cloud models after the cloud migration process is completed. Connected systems on the cloud will produce massive amounts of data, and data analytics and AI-driven automation will be the following big growth engines.
Ashis says the cloud, cyber security market, and data analytics drive Infosys' digital portfolio to rise at a 30% annual pace in FY21. Digital revenue now accounts for half of total revenue, and it will continue to expand rapidly at the cost of core legacy revenue. Ashis expects the digital business will expand and generate higher margins than the company's average of 24%.
