Reasons for Upside

Genpact’s focus on integrating process, analytics and digital technologies, and its deep domain expertise is helping it win customers on a regular basis.
In 2021, 2020 and 2019, Genpact repurchased shares worth $298.2 million, $137.1 million and $30 million, respectively. G paid out $80.5 million, $74.2 million and $64.7 million of dividends during 2021, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Such moves highlight Genpact’s commitment to creating shareholder value and underline its confidence in business.

Genpact's current ratio (a measure of liquidity) at the end of second-quarter 2022 was pegged at 1.58, higher than the current ratio of 1.44 reported at the end of first-quarter 2022 and the prior-year quarter’s 1.52.  An increasing current ratio is desirable  as it indicates the risk of default to be less.

Favorable Estimate Revision

Driven by the above tailwinds, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for current-year earnings has moved up marginally to $2.72 per share in the past 90 days.
