"Our strong performance and market share gains are a testament to the enormous confidence our clients have in us to help them in their digital transformation. This stems from four years of sustained strategic focus on areas of relevance for our clients in digital and cloud, continued re-skilling of our people, and deep relationships of trust that our clients have with us," said Salil Parekh, CEO and MD, Infosys.
"This is reflected in an upgrade in our revenue guidance to 19.5 per cent to 20.0 per cent for FY22. We expect the healthy technology spend to continue with large enterprises progressing on their digital transformations," Parekh said in a statement.
Nilanjan Roy, Chief Financial Officer, Infosys, said, "Despite the cost escalations driven primarily by supply side challenges, we delivered another quarter of healthy margins, with improved cost optimization, continued operating leverage and a stable pricing environment."
"We continue to prioritise investments in talent acquisition and development and have further increased our global graduate hiring programme to over 55,000 for FY22 to support our growth ambitions," Roy added. (ANI)
