About Us



Established in 1981, Infosys is a NYSE listed global consulting and IT services company with more than 187,000 employees. From a capital of US$ 250, we have grown to become a US$ 9.02 billion (LTM Q2 FY16 revenues) company with a market capitalization of approximately US$ 43.8 billion.

In our journey of over 30 years, we have catalyzed some of the major changes that have led to India's emergence as the global destination for software services talent. We pioneered the Global Delivery Model and became the first IT company from India to be listed on NASDAQ. Our employee stock options program created some of India's first salaried millionaires.
