The Bangalore-based firm had reported a net profit of Rs 2,374 crore in the year-ago period, it said in a BSE filing.

The consolidated revenue for the reported quarter was up 13.3 percent to Rs 12,770 crore from Rs 11,267 crore in the year-ago period.

For FY'15, the country's second-largest software services firm expects revenues to grow 7-9 percent in USD terms and 5.6-7.6 percent in rupee terms.

This is much below Nasscom's industry growth outlook at 13-15 percent in dollar terms for the fiscal.

"We continue to enjoy the confidence of our clients by demonstrating superior execution capability and value realisation," Infosys CEO and Managing Director SD Shibulal said.

In US dollar terms, its consolidated net profit rose 15.3 percent to USD 482 million in the April-June quarter of this fiscal, while revenues rose 7.1 percent to USD 2.13 billion.

"We improved operational performance as a result of our cost optimization initiatives and a focus on increasing productivity and utilization," Infosys CFO Rajiv Bansal said.

This partially offsets the impact of compensation increases for employees this quarter, he added.

The company added 11,506 employees (gross), taking its headcount to 1,61,284 employees as on June 30, 2014. Its attrition rate was, however, higher at 19.5 percent for the quarter.

The shares of Infosys were trading 1.19 percent up at Rs 3,332 apiece on the BSE in morning trade on Friday.
