Wipro Chairman Azim Premji said although the overall economic environment ‘remains challenging,' the company saw opportunities for growth in clients' emphasis on increasing productivity and reducing costs.
Observing that the company had delivered revenues within its earlier guidance range, T. K. Kurien, CEO, said although the company's order “pipeline remains robust, (deal) closures are taking time to bear fruit.” Wipro stood to benefit from “technology disruptions” arising in a situation where “offshoring has become mainstream.” He pointed out that the company added seven accounts each with deals worth more than $100 million during the fourth quarter, compared to only three in the last quarter of 2010-11. The average revenue from such clients had increased from $111 million to $123 million. However, he admitted that ‘decision-making' by clients had been slow.
