Infosys Q2 Results Live: Analysts expect weakness in next 2 quarters

“The fact that the deal wins have been fairly recent and the conversion probably hasn’t yet kind of taken off because of the kind of hesitation that most of these new contracts, new deals have been coming with, so it is quite understandable why they have cut the guidance," said market analyst Prakash Diwan

"If TCS numbers we were interpreting as some sort of bottoming out in Q2FY24, Infosys is saying it is not probably the bottom, we will probably see weakness continue in the next two quarters as well. So there is nothing very convincing about the numbers beyond the fact that they have just managed to get some growth and eke out some margins," he added.

Infosys Q2 Results Live: Analysts say Q2 results not in favour of bulls

Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities said, “Infosys Q2 earnings are in line with market expectation but the company trimming its revenue guidance would be negative for the stock. Overall results are not so bad but discounted in prices.''

‘’FY24 Guidance - revised downwards would put pressure on prices to sustain while it has maintained margins. Technically the last minute fall in prices shows that results were not in favour of bulls, hence a gap down opening between 1400-1420 could be seen in the opening trade,'' said Tapse.

Infosys Q2 Results Live: TCV likely to be higher than $5 billion

Large deal TCV stood at $2.3 billion in Q1FY24 and Nirmal Bang believes that Q2FY24 TCV number will be much higher at $5 billion+ as Infosys has announced multiple mega deals.

Also, third-party items in the P&L statement will be keenly watched as these have been much higher compared to peers (~6-7% run-rate) and have been margin dilutive for the company.

“Contradictory statements have been made by the company, which on the one hand indicate that it will improve margins from FY23 levels, but on the other hand, they imply that the company is not hesitant to take on large integrated deals (margin dilutive because of third-party pass-through elements) to drive growth," Nirmal Bang said.

Infosys Q2 Results Live: Muted revenue growth, stable margins, attractive deal TCVs likely: Motilal Oswal

Brokerage firm Motilal Oswal Financial Services expects Infosys to report muted revenue growth of 0.8% QoQ CC due to continued demand slowdown with no meaningful contribution coming from the recently signed mega deals. Deal TCVs should look attractive due to multiple mega wins recently. We would be closely monitoring the rampup of these wins and the formation of a deal pipeline.

Operating margin largely remains stable due to weak topline growth with no wage hike this quarter. We expect the company to maintain its guidance on the back of healthy deal wins, which should provide strong footing in H2,  said teh brokerage house.

Infosys, the second largest software service exporter in India, is likely to post earnings growth for the quarter ended September 2023. The revenue growth for the whole IT sector is likely to be modest, dragged by lower discretionary tech spends and delay in execution of deals, analysts said.

However, demand stays solid—likely to show up in strong deal flows yet again— which should translate to a strong recovery in H2FY24.

Infosys Q2 Results Live: Key things to watch out

Things to watch out for in Infosys Q2 results:

(1) When will salary hikes kick in, if any? 

(2) Will execution of large contracts mean that margins in FY24 will come in at the lower end of the EBIT margin band of 20-22%? 

(3) Demand commentary for 2HFY24 

(4) Commentary around BFSI, Retail and Telecom demand 

(5) Usage of Gen AI to improve productivity 

(6) Have the large deals been ‘priced to win’ and will the subsequent margin expansion be dependent on usage of Gen AI? 

(7) What are the chances that execution of these mega deals won will not be pushed back if macro turns worse?

Infosys Q2 Results Live: Expect no change in revenue, margin guidance: Nirmal Bang

Infosys had reduced its CC growth guidance for FY24 from 4-7% to 1-3.5%. Brokerage firm Nirmal Bang does not expect a change in the guidance either regarding revenue or margins. It expects Infosys to report revenue growth at 1.7% QoQ in CC terms and with no cross-currency impact.

EBIT margin is expected to contract by 30 bps QoQ to 20.5% due to the start of execution of some mega deals won, which will be in the transition phase and employee rebadging. We believe no salary hikes have been announced and hence have not incorporated that in our numbers.
