With these significant client additions, the company has managed to de-risk its client concentration. While the revenues from top 5 clients diluted to 25.3% compared to 27.4% in 1QFY02, contribution to revenues from top ten clients diluted more significantly to 39.7% compared to 43.7% as on 1QFY02.

The net employee addition during 2QFY02 was 607 as compared to 106 for 1QFY02. With this the utilization rates including trainees dropped marginally to 68.8% compared to 69.5% in 1QFY02. However, on a YoY basis the figure has improved compared to 65.4% for 2QFY01. The total number of employees has crossed the 10,000 mark to stand at 10,554 as on September 30, 2001.

Infosys has given its outlook for the quarter ending December 2001. The company expects the topline to dip marginally on a QoQ basis or remain flat. The topline is expected to be in the range of Rs 6,400 m (2% dip, QoQ) to Rs 6,560 m (1% rise, QoQ). The EPS is expected to be in the range of Rs 29 to Rs 31, this translates to a net profit figure between Rs 1,916 m (4.6% decline, QoQ) and Rs 2,049 m (1.9% rise, QoQ).

The company has marginally increased its revenue guidance for FY02. The topline is now expected to be in the range of Rs 25.4 bn and Rs 25.9 bn (previous guidance was Rs 25 bn and Rs 25.6 bn). This means that the topline is now expected to grow in the range 33.6% and 36.3%. The EPS is now estimated to be in range of Rs 120 and Rs 123. The previous guidance on the EPS was in the range Rs 118 and Rs 121. This translates to a growth in net profits in the range of 27.3% to 30.4%, with the bottomline expected to be in the range of Rs 7,932 m and Rs 8,130 m.

At the current market price of Rs 2,503, the stock is trading at a P/E multiple of 20.5 times its 2QFY02 annualised earnings.
