Sharekhan says Infosys reported lower-than-expected revenue growth, while operating profit margin (OPM) remained slightly better than their expectations. Sharekhan says that the Management stated that higher spending on digital initiatives in financial services, strong recovery in manufacturing and retail verticals, and lower exposure to impacted verticals would help it drive growth in the coming quarters.
Sharekhan said that they believe Infosys is well placed to capture opportunities from increasing spends on multi-year core modernisation and higher adoption of digital transformation initiatives across verticals. Infosys Management highlighted that margin guidance for FY2022 has factored in the next round of wage revision, effective from Q2FY2022 and return of travel and discretionary expenses from H2FY2022.
In this report, Sharekhan highlights that Infosys’ board has approved the buyback programme of Rs. 9,200 crore (maximum buyback size, excluding tax component) through the open market route at a price not exceeding Rs. 1,750 per share. Though the quantum of the buyback is similar to last buyback programmes, this share buyback size is lower than our expectations. The buyback should result in slight accretion to EPS from reduction in share count and positive from RoE perspective.
