Infosys, who’s leading position in Indian software industry is being questioned by fast growing rivals like TCS, Wipro and HCL, has reported better cash flow and receivables than its rivals over the past nine months.
It is reportedly said; during thepast nine-month period from April to December, Infosys' operating cash flow was nearly 80 percent of the overall revenue, compared to less than 50 percent each for TCS, HCL and Wipro.
The Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) is another metric where India's second-biggest software exporter performed better over its domestic rivals. During Q3, Infosys' DSO or debtor days was 62 days compared with Wipro's over 90 and TCS' 84 days.
It is important to note that the Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) is the ratio of account receivables and total revenue.
All in all, Infosys is able to collect monies due from customers faster than rivals, which helps it maintain a healthy cash flow in third quarter ending December, 2011.
Market watchers added, in an industry with aggressive rivals like TCS, HCL, Wipro and Cognizant, Infosys still needs more than its cash discipline to gain market share.
Let’s hope Infosys will regain its leading position in Indian software industry very soon.
