Karmesh Vaswani, EVP & Global Head of Consumer, Retail and Logistics Industries at Infosys, commented, “The speed, agility, and efficiency that the suite of solutions powered by Infosys Cobalt will provide to Posten will be pivotal in delivering a best-in-class customer experience that will set it apart from the competition.”
He further added, “As part of this collaboration, we also look forward to developing digital solutions for our customers by combining the complementary capabilities of the two organizations.”
Following the company’s recent results announcement, Stifel Nicolaus analyst David Grossman maintained a Hold rating and a price target of $22 on Infosys.
Grossman commented, “Management’s tone on this morning’s call was positive, reiterating well-known themes (accelerating demand for transformational services, particularly cloud) and the ramp of strong FY21 (Mar) bookings.”
He further highlighted, “There was considerable focus on elevating attrition rates and wage pressures; however, as we discuss below, tight labor markets generally reflect inflection points in demand and should favor the larger, better-managed vendors like INFY (ACN, EPAM also fit this profile in our coverage).”
Consensus among analysts is a Hold based on 3 Holds and 1 Sell. The average Infosys price target of $22.50 implies that the shares are fully-values at current levels.
