Infosys lowers revenue outlook in rupee, dollar value

Infosys lowers revenue outlook in rupee, dollar value

Infosys-lowers-revenue-outlook-in-rupee-dollar-value

Bengaluru, Oct 14: Global software major on Friday lowered its annual revenue guidance for fiscal 2016-17 in dollar and rupee value due to volatility in currencies and uncertain business outlook in the near term.

In a regulatory filing to the stock exchanges, the IT major said consolidated revenue for this fiscal (FY 2017) would grow eight to nine per cent in constant currency in dollar value.

"The guidance of 8-9 per cent in constant currency translates into 7.5-8.5 per cent growth on September 30 dollar value of Rs 66.62 and 10.9-11.9 per cent growth in rupee value," said the filing.

For fiscal 2015-16, consolidated revenue 9.1 per cent to $9.5 billion in dollar terms and 17.1 per cent to Rs 62,441 crore in rupee terms.

The lower guidance despite robust growth in second quarter (July-September) impacted the blue chip's scrip of Rs five face value on the bourses, leading to loss of Rs 19.05 on the BSE to Rs 1,033 per share in the pre-noon trading from Thursday's closing price of Rs 1052.05 despite opening at a higher rate of Rs 1,060.

Sydney, Oct 14: Hit by a photo-sharing scandal with reports claiming that Apple staff lifted information from customers' phones that came for repair, the company on Friday denied that any such episode happened at the Carindale store in Queensland.

Courier Mail reported on Thursday that employees at the store were fired after they were found sharing photos of customers.

The Cupertino, San Francisco-based company, however, said they have not found any such evidence so far.

"Based on our investigation thus far, we have seen no evidence that customer data or photos were inappropriately transferred or that anyone was photographed by these former employees," the Apple statement said.

According to Courier Mail, Australian Privacy Commissioner Timothy Pilgrim has asked for more information in the incident.

"We are aware of the reports and will be making inquiries with Apple to seek further information. This is an important reminder that all organisations that collect and manage personal information need to embed a culture of privacy and ensure employees understand their responsibilities," Pilgrim was quoted as saying.

Steph Doukas, 28, who gave her phone for repair, was in shock.

"If it happened to me I would just be distraught. All my information was on my phone and backed up to my iCloud, and I just left it with them," she was quoted as saying.

Queensland Police also visited the Carindale store to seek more information. "Any person who wishes to make a complaint is asked to contact police," a spokesperson said.

Meanwhile, the senior staff at various Apple stores warned employees not to take photographs of colleagues or customers, the report added.

"Apple believes in treating everyone equally and with respect, and we do not tolerate behaviour that goes against our values," the statement further read.
Samsung estimates $3 bn losses over Note 7 withdrawal

Seoul, Oct 14: South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics has estimated that it will lose 3.5 trillion won ($3 billion) in operating profits over the next six months due to the withdrawal of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, the company said on Friday.

Samsung calculated that the impact of the sales halt will amount to 2.5 trillion won ($2 billion) in the fourth quarter of this year, from October to December, and around one trillion won ($880 million) for the quarter from January to March 2017, EFE news reported.

The firm first announced a drastic downward revision of its forecast for operating profits between July to September, from an expected growth of 5.5 per cent year on year to a 29.63-per cent fall from the same month in 2015. The final results of the quarter will be presented at the end of October.

Samsung Electronics was now planning to standardise its mobile phone business by expanding sales of models including the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, noting it will also introduce "significant changes" to its quality checking processes to "enhance safety for consumers".

On Tuesday, the company announced it would freeze sales of its high-end smartphone and permanently cease production of the device over the persistent risk of spontaneous fires caused by defective batteries.

The South Korean conglomerate began selling the phone on August 19 this year, but in September announced an unprecedented withdrawal following reports of more than thirty cases of combustion by terminals in multiple countries.

In the recall affecting about 2.5 million phones, the company proceeded in mid-September to deliver replacement phones, but the new batch continued to suffer from battery overheating, ultimately resulting in the definitive withdrawal of the product.

Samsung revises down Q3 earnings after discontinuing Galaxy Note 7

Samsung revises down Q3 earnings after discontinuing Galaxy Note 7

Samsung-revises-down-Q3-earnings-after-discontinuing-Galaxy-Note-7

Seoul, Oct 12: Hit by the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, Samsung Electronics on Wednesday revised down its preliminary figure for the third-quarter earnings to $4.6 billion -- showing a massive $2.4 billion loss from the earlier preliminary guidance.

Preliminary figure for the third-quarter operating profit was revised down to 5.2 trillion won ($4.6 billion) from its initial estimate of 7.8 trillion won ($7 billion) unveiled last week, Xinhua news agency reported.

The operating profit was down 29.63 per cent from the same period last year. From the previous quarter, it was down 36.12 per cent.

The south Korean company has witnessed more than $20 billion being wiped off its market value in two days after announcing the halt in sales and production of Note 7 owing to battery explosion fears.

Revenue was downgraded from 49 trillion won to 47 trillion won. The third-quarter revenue was down 9.06 per cent from a year earlier. From the previous quarter, it fell 7.73 per cent.

"After recent incidents and in consideration of our consumers' safety, SEC has stopped sales, exchanges and production of the Galaxy Note 7. The revised pre-earnings guidance reflects the impact of this decision on the third quarter earnings," Samsung said in a statement.

Samsung has advised Note 7 owners to stop using the device -- both original and the replaced one.

"Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note 7 or a replacement Galaxy Note 7 device should power down and stop using the device, and take advantage of the remedies available," Samsung said in a statement.

"We are working with relevant regulatory bodies to investigate the recently reported cases involving the Galaxy Note 7," it added.

After incidents of Note 7 device catching fire in various flights, a replacement Note 7 device also reportedly caught fire on a US flight, leading to cancellation of the flight after evacuation.

Samsung has recalled nearly 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 smartphones over battery overheating issues globally.

Seoul, Oct 11: After temporarily suspending the production of Galaxy Note 7 smartphone amid battery explosion fears, Samsung on Tuesday advised Note 7 owners to stop using the device -- both original and the replaced one.

"Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note 7 or a replacement Galaxy Note 7 device should power down and stop using the device, and take advantage of the remedies available," Samsung said in a statement.

"We are working with relevant regulatory bodies to investigate the recently reported cases involving the Galaxy Note 7," it added.

After incidents of Note 7 device catching fire in various flights, a replacement Note 7 device also reportedly caught fire on a US flight, leading to cancellation of the flight after evacuation.

Samsung has recalled nearly 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 smartphones over battery overheating issues globally.

"Because consumers' safety remains our top priority, Samsung will ask all carrier and retail partners globally to stop sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note 7 while the investigation is taking place," the company said in the fresh statement on Tuesday.

"We remain committed to working diligently with appropriate regulatory authorities to take all necessary steps to resolve the situation," it added.

Earlier, Yonhap news agency reported that Samsung has temporarily suspended the production of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone.

"This measure includes a Samsung plant in Vietnam that is responsible for global shipments (of the Galaxy Note 7)," it said, quoting a company official.

Despite the global recall of its flagship device, Samsung Electronics last week released a positive forecast for the third quarter of this year, expecting operating profits of 7.8 trillion Korean won (approx $7 billion) and revenues of 49 trillion Korean won.

The operating profits are a 5.6 per cent increase on the same period a year ago when the company registered 7.4 trillion won in operating profits, Samsung Electronics said in its earnings guidance for the third quarter.

Offer still on: Airtel on Apple iPhone 7 scheme

Offer still on: Airtel on Apple iPhone 7 scheme

Offer-still-on-Airtel-on-Apple-iPhone-7-scheme

New Delhi, Oct 10: Soon after reports emerged that Bharti Airtel website page -- where an offer "Apple iPhone 7 at Rs 19,990 on Airtel" was highlighted -- returned a 404 error message, the telecom company confirmed that "the offer is still on".

"The offer is very much on. The site will be up and running soon," a source in the company told IANS.

When one logged into the company's website, a message returned: "Sorry! The page you are looking for could not be found! Please try later or go to www.airtel.in."

"We understand that there is some confusion regarding two separate offers from Airtel on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus," Airtel said in a statement.

"In the interest of customers and to avoid any further confusion, relevant changes are being made to the website. These will reflect shortly," the company noted.

Airtel said that there is a special 10 GB per month free additional data offer with any Airtel Infinity plan with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus.

There is also a device lease plan, which is being piloted for employees of select enterprise customers, and this offer is also very much active.

The offer is open for all customers and is very much active, Airtel clearified.

Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus were officially available in India from October 7.

The telecom giant rolled out an offer on the these premium devices saying that Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones can be purchased on contract basis at a minimum down payment of Rs 19,990 and Rs 30,792, respectively.

Under this offer, Airtel will provide unlimited local and STD calls, free roaming, and free data (5GB, 10GB or 15GB, as per the plan chosen) under a new postpaid connection.

As part of this plan, customers can keep the device for a year.

After the completion of one year, the iPhone 7 users will have two options: either to upgrade to the next version of the iPhone or to buy the handset they are using by making a balloon payment.

Samsung-adjusting-Note-7-production-schedule-for-quality-safety

New Delhi, Oct 10: Following reports of Samsung temporarily suspending the production of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, the South Korean giant on Monday issued a statement saying the company is "adjusting the device's production schedule to ensure quality and safety".

"We are temporarily adjusting the Galaxy Note 7 production schedule in order to take further steps to ensure quality and safety matters," US-based technology website Android Central quoted a company statement as saying.

Amid reports that some Note 7 replacements have caught fire, Yonhap news agency on Monday reported that Samsung has temporarily suspended the production of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone.

"This measure includes a Samsung plant in Vietnam that is responsible for global shipments (of the Galaxy Note 7)," a company official said.

Samsung started selling the Note 7 in South Korea on August 19 but announced a global recall of 2.5 million units in September following reports of some of the devices catching fire while being charged.

The company has encouraged owners of the Note 7 to swap their devices with new ones, but recently a replacement Note 7 device reportedly caught fire on a US flight, leading to cancellation of the flight after evacuation.

According to The Verge, Southwest Airlines flight 994 from Louisville to Baltimore was evacuated during the boarding process after a smoked Galaxy Note 7 was spotted.

The owner of the device said that the phone was letting off a "thick grey-green angry smoke" and had burnt through the carpet and "scorched the subfloor of the plane".

Recently, India's civil aviation regulator lifted the restrictions on in-flight use of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone -- but only those purchased after September 15.

On September 9, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had prohibited the use of the high-end smartphone on-board aircraft.

Despite the global recall of this flagship device, Samsung Electronics on Friday released a positive forecast for the third quarter of this year, expecting operating profits of 7.8 trillion Korean won (approx $7 billion) and revenues of 49 trillion Korean won.

The operating profits are a 5.6 per cent increase on the same period a year ago when the company registered 7.4 trillion won in operating profits, Samsung Electronics said in its earnings guidance for the third quarter.
