    Infosys Technologies Limited ("Infosys" or "the company") today announced
financial results for the second quarter ended September 30, 2007. Revenues
for the quarter aggregated $ 1,022 million, up 37.0% from $ 746 million for
the quarter ended September 30, 2006.

    "We have achieved yet another milestone by crossing one billion dollars
in revenues this quarter," said S. Gopalakrishnan, CEO and Managing Director.
"In an increasingly flat world, our unique business model combined with our
value proposition continues to help our clients grow profitably."

    During the quarter, 48 clients were added. Infosys drove growth in Europe
with new wins and strengthened existing client relationships with a focus on
increasing its share of the sourcing pie.

    Infosys' multimillion-dollar contract with Royal Philips Electronics of
the Netherlands was among the largest Finance & Accounting business process
outsourcing (BPO) engagements from India and has expanded Infosys' global
network into Poland and Thailand while strengthening its European operations.

    Growth in North America continued to be strong. To improve proximity to
clients in the region, Infosys opened its first Latin American subsidiary in
Monterrey, Mexico. The subsidiary, Infosys Technologies S. De RL De CV,
provides business consulting and information technology services as well as
key offerings in business process outsourcing, infrastructure management and
packaged solutions implementation.

    Infosys became the first company outside North America to join the
Financial Institution Shared Assessments Program, the financial services
industry's leading standards body that provides tools for evaluating the
security practices of information technology (IT) services providers. Infosys'
participation in the program is a reaffirmation of its commitment to providing
a secure outsourcing environment for clients.

    In the energy sector, one of the largest drilling contractors in the
Middle East has signed up Infosys to conduct a scoping exercise for SAP-based
Business Intelligence implementation.

    A leading global bank is using an Infosys-built application to mine and
assimilate distributed customer data, enabling it to tailor services for its
customers. A Fortune 500 manufacturer of pressure-sensitive adhesive labels
has signed up Infosys to build a global order management and sourcing
application to align its IT and business objectives and create global best
practices around vital business processes.

    In a multi-year engagement with a leading software vendor with worldwide
operations, Infosys is maintaining and enhancing core corporate applications
for finance, HR, legal and corporate services. A global pharmaceutical and
medical products company has selected Infosys' product engineering services to
enable it to rapidly innovate and bring high quality products to the market.

    In the UK, a leading retailer turned to Infosys to set up a governance
process and streamline project management to improve delivery effectiveness.

    Infosys is executing multiple research and product development projects
for a top telecom provider in Europe to help the client introduce products to
the market faster.

    "Our operating margins improved during the quarter despite the
appreciating rupee," said V. Balakrishnan, Chief Financial Officer. "We are
proactively hedging our currency exposures to mitigate this impact. Our
hedging position as of September 30, 2007, was $ 1.4 billion."
