Infosys Q1 Results 2019 Expectations
Motilal Oswal Securities is expecting an acceleration in growth led by seasonal strength, resulting in 2.3% QoQ CC growth in Q1 FY19. “EBITDA margin is expected to contract by 100bp QoQ to 26.3%, led by wage hikes and increased investments, partially offset by INR depreciation,” Motilal Oswal Securities said in a report.
