The country’s no. 2 software services exporter Infosys reported a 0.9% drop in quarterly profit, and forecast June quarter consolidated earnings per share to grow up to 1.8%.
A. N. Sridhar, a fund manager at Sahara Mutual Fund called the company’s earnings per share outlook for this quarter “quite conservative.”

Financials edged lower, weighed down by concerns over rising inflation.
