If You Invested ₹10,000 In Infosys When Salil Parekh Became CEO, Here's How Much You'd Have Today

India’s second-biggest IT services company, Infosys, posted its March quarter earnings on Thursday. The stock has had a quiet year at the bourses with a 14% gain. But, over the years, it has been one of the biggest wealth creators at the bourses. So if you had invested in the stock when the company’s current CEO Salil Parekh took over the reins, here’s what would have happened.

Earnings Overview: The IT giant reported revenue from operations at ₹37,923 crore. The net profits stood at ₹7,969 crore. For the year ending March 25, the IT behemoth has projected a revenue growth of 1%-3% in constant currency.
