Due to cross currency headwinds, analysts expects Infosys' management to prune the company's revenue growth guidance in dollar terms for the year ending 31 March 2015 (FY 2015). The IT major is widely expected to prune its FY 2015 dollar revenue growth to 7%-8%, from 7%-9%.

At the time of announcement of Q2 September 2014 results, Infosys had on 10 October 2014 retained its earlier guidance of 7% to 9% growth in revenue in dollar terms for FY 2015. At that time, the company had raised its revenue growth guidance in rupee terms due to rupee depreciation. The company had raised the revenue growth guidance for FY 2015 in rupee terms to 6.7%-8.7% from earlier 5.6%-7.6% at that time. The revised guidance was based on rupee dollar conversion rate of 61.

Infosys is a global leader in consulting, technology and outsourcing solutions.
