Wipro shares fall nearly 5%; mcap down Rs 6,628 cr post results
Mumbai: IT services major Wipro's scrip ended nearly 5 percent down Friday after the company's June quarter earnings missed market expectations.

Shares of the company settled 4.66 percent lower at Rs 549.90 on the BSE. During the day, it plunged 8.46 percent to Rs 528.

At the NSE, the IT firm's scrip tanked 4.41 percent to Rs 551.40.

Led by the dip in the stock, Wipro's market value dropped Rs 6,628.36 crore to Rs 1,35,681.64 crore.

"Wipro's June'14 quarter results missed the 'already modest' expectations," said Manik Taneja, Research Analyst at Emkay Global Financial Services.

Wipro had yesterday reported 29.5 percent growth in consolidated net profit for April-June period, helped by large deals in application and infrastructure space as well as return of discretionary spending in the North American market.

The firm had posted a net profit of Rs 1,623.3 crore in the year-ago period, it had said in a BSE filing.

Consolidated net sales of the country's third-largest IT services firm rose 15.5 per cent to Rs 11,245.5 crore in April-June quarter this fiscal from Rs 9,733.2 crore in the same quarter of 2013-14.

In US dollars, Wipro reported a net profit of USD 351 million and revenue of USD 1.9 billion.

Revenue from IT services stood at USD 1.74 billion, a quarter-on-quarter increase of 1.2 per cent and year-on-year increase of 9.6 percent. Wipro had guided this to be in the range of USD 1.715 billion and USD 1.755 billion.
