  • Nifty fails to hold 12,000 mark

    Stocks ended with small gains in the recently concluded week as gains triggered by signs of progress in U.S.-China trade relations were mostly offset by Moody's downgrading India's outlook to negative from stable. The Nifty settled below the psychological 12,000 mark after rising above that level during the week. The secondary indices underperformed the key benchmark indices.

    In the week ended on Friday, 8 November 2019, the Sensex rose 158.58 points or 0.39% to settle at 40,323.61. The Nifty 50 index rose 17.55 points or 0.15% to settle at 11,908.15.

    The BSE Mid-Cap index fell 159.47 points or 1.07% to settle at 14,731.11. The BSE Small-Cap index fell 126.17 points or 0.93% to settle at 13,474.75.

    Key equity indices gained on Monday, 4 November 2019, supported by positive global cues. The barometer index, the BSE Sensex rose 136.93 points, or 0.34%, to 40,301.96. The Nifty 50 index rose 54.55 points, or 0.46%, to end at 11,945.15.

    Key equity indices declined on Tuesday, 5 November 2019, as investors locked profits after seven-day rising streak. The barometer index, the BSE Sensex fell 53.73 points or 0.13% to close at 40,248.23. The Nifty 50 index fell 24.10 points or 0.20% to close at 11,917.20.

    Indices reversed early losses and ended in the green on Wednesday, 6 November 2019. Positive global cues supported sentiment. The barometer index, the BSE Sensex rose 221.55 points or 0.55% to close at 40,469.78. The Nifty 50 index rose 48.85 points or 0.41% to 11,966.05.

This resulted in a pre-tax adjusted gain of Rs 8,000.29 crore in the consolidated financial results. The corporation has recognised such gains as realised gain of Rs 1,473.75 crore on sale of shares and the net unrealised gain of Rs 6,526.54 crore being fair value of the retained investment in GRUH.

The result was announced after market hours on Friday, 1 November 2019.

Further, given the circumstances at this stage, where there is complete absence of prima facie evidence and the anonymous complaints are still under investigation, the company is not in a position to determine the concreteness, credibility and materiality of the anonymous complaints. In light of the above, no disclosure is required to be made, Infosys said.

I have deep regard for the life-long contribution of all our cofounders. They have built this institution and have served this company selflessly and even on Wednesday, remain committed to the long-term success of Infosys. As previously stated, the audit committee has appointed an external law firm to conduct an independent investigation into the allegations made in the complaints. The firm will share the outcome of the investigation at the relevant time with all stakeholders, the company added in its statement.
