Wall Street expects 9% growth in Infosys Q2 revenue

Information technology firm Infosys Limited (NYSE: INFY) is slated to report second-quarter 2020 earnings results on Friday, October 11, before the opening bell. Despite the concerns relating to the slowing economy in different parts of the world, Wall Street expects the company to report a 9% jump in revenues to $3.19 billion during the quarter.

The Bengaluru-headquartered firm is projected to report second-quarter earnings of $0.14 per share, a cent higher than what it reported last year.

Analysts have hit bulls-eye in predicting the bottom-line results of Infosys in three of the past four quarters. In just one quarter, Infosys missed the average market estimate by a cent.

Stagnation in economic growth in China and Europe, as well as the lack of clarity relating to Brexit are expected to dent the second-quarter results. In fact, Infosys recently acquired Irish contact center Eishtec for an undisclosed amount, in a move that could be seen as setting up of an operating hub outside UK.

Infosys had also earlier this year bought a 75% stake in ABN AMRO unit Stater to add fillip to its US mortgage business.
