Coforge Stock Latest Update:

On May 3, Coforge stock prices were seen falling nearly 7% in the first few minutes of trading after downgrades from brokerage firms came out following the company’s announcement of weak financial results for Q4 FY24.

As at 9:17 am, Coforge stock on Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) were at Rs 4,646.60 apiece, down Rs 339.50 or 6.81%.

For March quarter FY24, the IT services company reported a consolidated net profit of Rs 229.2 crore, a decline of 5.6% QoQ; and revenue from operations grew modestly by 1.5% sequentially to Rs 2,358.5 crore.

Profit jumped by 94.8% YoY from Rs115cr to Rs223.7cr; revenue grew by 8.6% YoY. The board also declared a fourth interim dividend of Rs19 per equity share for FY23-24.

Foreign research firm Jefferies downgraded Coforge to ‘underperform’ and cut target price to Rs4,290 per share citing weak Q4 performance (missed estimates due to lower-than-expected margins); absence of growth guidance for FY25 suggests higher uncertainty; recent large acquisition introduces additional execution risks justifying lower rating.

InCred also downgraded the stock to ‘reduce’, setting new target price at Rs4,431 per share highlighting that while acquisition of Cigniti adds capabilities and diversifies geography & verticals but it necessitates ~6% cut in estimated EPS CAGR for FY24-26E.

Separately, Coforge has entered into agreement to acquire approximately 54% stake in Cigniti Technologies at Rs1,415/share; deal expected to close in Q2FY25 subject to regulatory approvals
