Infosys (NS: INFY ) announced a robust performance for Q4 FY24, with a net profit of INR 7,975 crore, marking a significant 30% YoY increase. Despite challenges, the company reported a 1.3% YoY growth in revenue, reaching INR 37,923 crore.

However, revenues in constant currency terms remained stagnant YoY and dipped by 2.2% QoQ. Looking ahead, Infosys anticipates a steady revenue growth of 1-3% in constant currency for FY25, coupled with an operating margin of 20-22%, reflecting confidence in its operational efficiency amidst evolving market dynamics.

Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS ) analysis suggests that Infosys's 4Q results could mark a turning point, potentially ending negative surprises. The company's guidance for FY25 indicates modest growth, supported by deal ramp-ups and a favorable spending outlook. Historically, Infosys often revises revenue guidance upwards throughout the year, a trend expected to continue. Despite recent declines, Infosys's valuations remain discounted relative to the sector, expected to narrow as discretionary spending rebounds.

Goldman Sachs maintains a Buy rating with a 16% upside, highlighting Infosys's resilience but lowered the 12m target price by 4% to INR 1,650 (US$19.8 for ADR). However, they caution a negative read-across for companies like Wipro (NS: WIPR ) and LTIM, particularly those reliant on discretionary revenues. Infosys's note on tight budgets in the Communications sector could also impact companies like TechM, suggesting broader implications within the sector.
