Infosys, which only reports the total contract value (TCV) of its large deals, reported a TCV of $2.3 billion, which is up from last quarter’s $2.1 billion. This comes at a time when the company has announced two major deal wins — a MoU with BP for a $1.5 billion deal, and another with Danske Bank of $454 million. The IT major also announced this week that it has entered into an agreement with an existing client to provide AI and automation-led development, modernisation and maintenance services, where the spend would be $2 billion over five years.

The CEO said in the press conference that the company is seeing clients either stopping or slowing down transformation programmes and discretionary programmes, particular in financial services, mortgages, hi-tech, telecom, and retail. Parekh said that deal signings and start dates have been delayed, and a lot of the revenue from the larger and mega deals will be seen only towards the later part of the financial year. A combination of both is why, Parekh said, the company slashed its revenue guidance for the year.
