Infosys misses Q1 earnings estimates; maintains FY19 outlook

Software services company Infosys (INFY) reported a marginal decline in its earnings for the first quarter of 2019, missing the consensus estimates, while revenue numbers met expectations. Profit for the quarter came in at $534 million, down 1.2% year-over-year. However, profit on a per share basis, grew 3.9% to $0.25 per share. Net profit included an impact of $39 million for the reduction in the fair value of assets held for sale.

Revenue grew 6.8% to $2.83 million for the quarter, driven by growth in the company’s digital business offerings and higher deal wins in Q1. On a geographic basis, Europe and Rest of World posted marginal growth in revenue, while North America and India posted declines.

The Bengaluru, India based software giant also said that its deal wins crossed $1 billion, of which over 40% were from Financial Services.
