Infosys posts in line Q2 profit

Software services company Infosys (INFY) reported a marginal rise in earnings for the second quarter helped by higher revenue and the management of its costs and expenses. The bottom line came in line with analysts’ expectations, while revenue missed consensus estimates.

Net profit for the quarter rose by 0.5% to $581 million and earnings came in line with last year at $0.13 per share.

Revenue grew 7.1% to $2.92 billion, driven by growth in the company’s digital business offerings and higher deal wins in Q2. On a geographic basis, Europe and Rest of World posted marginal growth in revenue, while North America and India registered declines.

The Bengaluru, India-based software giant said its board declared an interim dividend of about $0.10 per American Depository Share. The number of active clients rose to 1,222 at the end of the quarter from 1,173 the year-ago period.
