BENGALURU: Software exporter Wipro beat Street expectations and reported 8.84% growth in consolidated net profit at Rs 2,192.8 crore and 5.4% on Q-0-Q for the third quarter of the current fiscal when compared to Rs 2,014.7 crore reported in the same period a year ago.
However, the better performance of the company did not reflect at the exchanges as its shares closed 0.79% lower at Rs 555.25 on the Bombay Stock Exchange.
The Bengaluru-based company’s growth was driven by deals in healthcare and infrastructure services. The company reported a revenue of Rs 7.7 billion ($123 million) from the IT products segment.
Total revenues were up 6% Y-o-Y at Rs 119.9 billion ($1.9 billion) and IT services revenue was $1.795.4 million, registering a sequential increase of 1.3% and Y-o-Y increase of 7%, the company said.
“Developments in the Global currency and commodity markets are affecting major economies unevenly even as India anticipates growth led by next-generation of economic reforms,” Azim Premji, Chairman of Wipro, said in a statement.
