Infosys Q1: Revenue growth disappoints; FY17 dollar revenue guidance cut!

Infosys reported a lower-than-expected cc dollar revenue growth of 1.7% qoq v/s IIFL expectation of 3.5% qoq. The revenue miss in Q1 FY17 has led to the management cutting the full year growth guidance to 10.5-12% yoy from 11.5-13.5% yoy. A likely near-term uncertainty caused by Brexit is also likely to have weighed on the growth outlook for the year. This would call for material cut in street’s revenue growth estimates for FY17/18 which currently stands at 14-15%. In Q1 FY17, volume growth was modest at 2.2% and CC pricing declined by 0.7% mainly reflecting persistent pressure on pricing in traditional service lines. OPM decline was lower than expected at 150bps qoq, cushioned to an extent by better utilization and SG&A leverage. Margin stands at multi-quarter low and the company would need squeeze efficiencies from operational levers to recoup margins through the year.
