Infosys Technologies FY06 Revenue Reaches US$1 Billion
Revenues for the Quarter Aggregated $524 million, up 38.3%

Infosys Technologies Limited has announced financial results for its second quarter ended September 30, 2005. Revenues for the quarter aggregated $ 524 million, up 38.3% from $ 379 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2004.

“We have seen robust growth during the quarter due to our effective focus on offering a broad array of services to our clients,” said Nandan M. Nilekani, CEO, President and Managing Director. “It took us the whole of fiscal 2004 to reach a revenue of US$ 1 billion. We reached the same level in the first six months of this year.”

“During this quarter we recruited 8,026 employees (gross), which is the highest ever during any quarter,” said S. Gopalakrishnan, Member of the Board and COO. “Our investments in creating a world-scale global education center coupled with our spend on education and research has enabled us to scale up rapidly.”

Infosys won its single largest multi-year, multi-million dollar contract from ABN AMRO to develop, support and enhance a wide spectrum of applications. This reinforces our belief that the offshoring of large deals is a mega trend. In a continuing partnership with a Swiss market leader in IT outsourcing and business service provisioning services, Infosys is providing a core banking services platform to the private banking sector in Europe. Further, Infosys entered into a high-volume, multi-year strategic engagement with a large hi-tech company to unify its IT systems across multiple branches and subsidiaries.

Infosys is helping clients realize value from investments in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and other enterprise applications for business transformation.

Leading companies in the banking, capital markets and financial services sectors are seeking Infosys’ domain expertise and industry-specific solutions to address their business problems. A leading diversified financial services company engaged Infosys to define a strategy for streamlining systems and processes to improve operational efficiency. Infosys’ Operational Risk Management Solution is enabling an investment management and outsourcing company to create an enterprise-wide framework to define, identify, measure, mitigate and report risk across key client business lines.

Infosys’ Independent Validation Services are enhancing the competitiveness of key clients across industries, including an international leader in investment banking and financial services and a leading Europe-based retailer.

“The ABN AMRO deal, signed this quarter, signifies the entry of Infosys into the arena of large, global, multi-year outsourcing contracts and is an endorsement of our competitive business model,” said S. D. Shibulal, Member of the Board and Head – Sales and Delivery. “Our strong customer service engine is enabling us to address client needs effectively.”

“The pricing environment is stable with an upward bias. We have maintained margins despite record hiring of employees during the quarter,” said T. V. Mohandas Pai, Member of the Board and CFO. “Liquid assets have gone up by $ 114 million. The rupee has depreciated during the quarter creating a more benign margin environment.”
