The announcement was made during market hours today, 18 August 2017.

Meanwhile, the S&P BSE Sensex was down 242.26 points or 0.76% at 31,553.20.

High volumes were witnessed on the counter. On the BSE, 14.29 lakh shares were traded on the counter so far as against the average daily volumes of 2.81 lakh shares in the past one quarter. The stock had hit a high of Rs 1,021.50 and a low of Rs 944 so far during the day. The stock had hit a 52-week low of Rs 900.30 on 9 November 2016. The stock had hit a 52-week high of Rs 1,080.70 on 14 October 2016.

The stock had outperformed the market over the past one month till 17 August 2017, rising 3.63% compared with the Sensex's 0.87% decline. The stock had also outperformed the market over the past one quarter, gaining 7.24% as against the Sensex's 3.71% rise. The scrip had, however, underperformed the market over the past one year, falling 1.19% as against the Sensex's 13.53% rise.

Infosys said that board of directors of the company at a meeting held today, 18 August 2017, accepted the resignation of Dr Vishal Sikka as the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the company with immediate effect. The board appointed Dr Vishal Sikka as the Executive Vice-Chairman.

The board appointed U B Pravin Rao as the Interim-Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer. The succession plan for appointment of a new Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer has been operationalised by the board and a search for the same has been commenced, company said.

In his notice of resignation to the board, Dr Sikka reiterated his belief in the great potential of Infosys, but cited among his reasons for leaving a continuous stream of distractions and disruptions over the recent months and quarters, increasingly personal and negative as of late, as preventing management's ability to accelerate the company's transformation.

The company said board understands and acknowledges Dr Sikka's reasons for resignation, and regrets his decision. In particular, the board is profoundly distressed by the unfounded personal attacks on the members of our management team that were made in the anonymous letters and have surfaced in recent months.

As the board has previously stated, a series of careful investigations found no merit to the unsubstantiated and anonymous allegations that had been asserted. The board denounces the critics who have amplified and sought to further promote demonstrably false allegations which have harmed employee morale and contributed to the loss of the company's valued CEO.

Dr Sikka has been appointed Executive Vice Chairman effective today, 18 August 2017 and will hold office until the new permanent Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director takes charge, which should be no later than 31 March 2018.

Dr Sikka will continue to focus on strategic initiatives, key customer relationships and technology development. He will report to the company's board.

Dr Sikka will receive an annual salary of $1 during his tenure as Executive Vice Chairman. Any company equity awards held by Dr Sikka that remain outstanding and unvested shall, during his term as Executive Vice Chairman, remain outstanding and shall continue to vest (and, in the case of stock options, become exercisable) in accordance with their terms.

The board has mandated the Chairman and the Nomination and Remuneration Committee to expeditiously identify and select a permanent CEO and Managing Director.

Separately, Infosys announced that ATP, the governing body of men's professional tennis, in association with company launched a new ‘PlayerZone' app and website. The revamped PlayerZone, an extranet portal for ATP players, their support teams, coaches, and others in the ecosystem, allows users to engage with each other and access information across a wide range of operational aspects related to life on Tour.

Besides simplifying the life of players on Tour, PlayerZone will also feature new prize money and taxes data to ease tracking of earnings and facilitate compliance.

The new app will increase engagement with the next generation of players, provide a central portal of information as players' progress through different stages of their career, as well as offer a forum to engagewith the players' support teams in a private and secure digital environment.

Infosys in doldrums after board blames Murthy for CEO's exit

The announcement was made during market hours today, 18 August 2017.

Meanwhile, the S&P BSE Sensex was down 241.38 points or 0.76% at 31,554.08.

High volumes were witnessed on the counter. On the BSE, 21.46 lakh shares were traded on the counter so far as against the average daily volumes of 2.81 lakh shares in the past one quarter. The stock had hit a high of Rs 1,021.50 and a low of Rs 937 so far during the day. The stock had hit a 52-week low of Rs 900.30 on 9 November 2016. The stock had hit a 52-week high of Rs 1,080.70 on 14 October 2016.

The stock had outperformed the market over the past one month till 17 August 2017, rising 3.63% compared with the Sensex's 0.87% decline. The stock had also outperformed the market over the past one quarter, gaining 7.24% as against the Sensex's 3.71% rise. The scrip had, however, underperformed the market over the past one year, falling 1.19% as against the Sensex's 13.53% rise.

The large-cap company has equity capital of Rs 1148.48 crore. Face value per share is Rs 5.

Infosys said that it has come to the attention of the board that a letter authored by Narayana Murthy, the founder of Infosys has been released to various media houses attacking the integrity of the board and management of the company alleging falling corporate governance standards in the company. The board takes great umbrage to the contents of the letter and places on record that Murthy's continuous assault, including this latest letter, is the primary reason that the CEO, Dr Vishal Sikka, has resigned despite strong board support.

Murthy's letter contains factual inaccuracies, already-disproved rumours, and statements extracted out of context from his conversations with board members. The board assures its shareholders, employees, customers and communities that it is committed not to be distracted by this misguided campaign by Murthy and will continue to adhere to the highest international standards of corporate governance as it executes its strategy of profitable growth for the benefit of all Infosys stakeholders.

Murthy's campaign against the board and the company has had the unfortunate effect to undermine the company's efforts to transform itself. The board has been engaged in a dialogue with the founder to resolve his concerns over the course of a year, trying earnestly to find feasible solutions within the boundaries of law and without compromising its independence. These dialogues have unfortunately not been successful.

The board declines to speculate about Murthy's motive for carrying out this campaign, including the latest letter. The board believes it must set the record straight on the false and misleading charges made by Murthy because his actions and demands are damaging the company and misrepresent its commitment to good corporate governance. Murthy repeatedly made inappropriate demands which are inconsistent with his stated desire for stronger governance, company added.

The board has in its fiduciary role to consider all shareholder inputs, treated each demand from Murthy as a suggestion and only acted on suggestions which believed was in the best interest of the company and declined to act on others. Over time the demands have intensified, which when declined by the board resulted in the threats of media attacks being carried out. Murthy may be in the process of engaging in discussions with certain key stakeholders of the company to further his criticisms of the board and management.

The company said that since Dr Vishal Sikka was appointed as MD and CEO in August 2014, Infosys has delivered competitive financial performance through profitable revenue growth. The board is a fully independent board, with professionals as its members who have been appointed by a clear majority of the shareholders.

Narayana Murthy holds 0.38% stake, his son Rohan Murthy holds 1.38% stake while wife Sudha Murthy holds 0.79% stake in the firm as per the shareholding patterm on 30 June 2017.
