Business Highlights

- We are pursuing and winning large outsourcing deals. Service innovations
  like Global Agile, Virtual Operations and Integrated Application Management continue
  to provide high levels of differentiation for us in the marketplace and have enabled
  wins across industry verticals. We have recently entered into a four-year engagement
  with Toyota Motor Europe to manage its Pan-European application support. This contract
  covers key operational areas including core automotive processes and corporate
  functions, under a managed service model.
- On the Business Transformation front, we have enhanced our scale in emerging
  markets and our non-linear revenues by leveraging new business models and pricing
  structures. We continue to leverage our alliances and are driving innovation through
  industry leading intellectual property and solutions.
- We continue to strengthen our competencies in Oracle and SAP practices. We
  have been rated as a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Oracle Application
  Implementation and Application Management Services, and for SAP Application Management
  services.
- Our Products and Platforms business continues to grow at a steady pace with 15
  wins this quarter (excluding Finacle(TM)).
- Finacle(TM) had 18 new wins across South Asia, South East Asia, the Middle
  East, Europe, and Australia-New Zealand this quarter. We launched Finacle 11E, the
  enterprise edition of Finacle(TM) universal banking solution. Finacle 11E is designed
  to simplify banking transformation with enterprise-class components.
- We are building momentum in the market with our Cloud and Big Data offerings.
  Last quarter, we won over 15 new projects with clients in these segments. We are a
  leader in Cloud services with more than 4,500 Cloud experts, 200 engagements and 35
  partners. This was validated by IDC's recognition of Infosys as a Major Player in its
  IDC MarketScape for Cloud Professional Services.

  device. This quarter we began over 25 different engagements in various areas such as
  Mobile strategy consulting, Mobile field service, customer engagement, and enterprise
  productivity, among others.
- In the U.S., we are partnering with leading healthcare and public sector
  organizations through Infosys Public Services Inc., to help them deliver
  patient-centric care and mission outcomes. A Blue Cross Blue Shield Plan awarded us a
  three year managed services contract to support its IT operations and provide
  application maintenance and testing services. This will enable the client to optimize
  efficiency and cost while delivering enhanced care and services to members. We have
  also been selected by a multi-state Medicaid/Medicare Plan to implement a solution
  that meets shared member liability management requirements, as mandated for
  participation in health exchanges under the U.S. Affordable Care Act.
