- The street is expecting a dollar revenue growth of 2.6 percent. In constant currency terms, it should be a growth of 2.2-2.3 percent.
- The deal wins have been strong for the company till the month of December. In the first nine months of FY19, the company reported 40 percent improvement in their deal wins and even in the March quarter they have announced the big Xerox deal which was worth $1.3 billion. All that will power the topline growth.
