Infosys: God of big things!
Oct 11, 2005

Infosys has announced its financial results for the second quarter and half-year ended September 2005. Stable-to-positive billing rates, strong volume growth and traction in key service lines has led to a strong double-digit sequential topline growth for the quarter. With salary expenses already having been factored in as well as depreciation of the rupee against major currencies, operating margins have been maintained at the same levels as the previous quarter, despite lower utilisation rates. Bottomline growth has been driven by considerably higher other income and a lower effective tax rate. The company has already hit US$ 1 bn revenue mark in the first half.
