New Delhi: Wipro Ltd on Tuesday posted 35 per cent rise in consolidated net profit to Rs 2,552.7 crore for the second quarter ended September 30.

The company had registered a net profit of Rs 1,889 crore in the year-ago period. Its total income for September quarter stood at 15,875.4 crore compared to 15,203.2 crore a year ago.

The Bengaluru-based company's revenue came in 4 per cent higher year-on-year at Rs 1,51,25.6 crore.

Wipro has guided for 0.8-2.8 per cent sequential growth in IT service revenue for December quarter, saying revenue from that business is expected to be USD 2,065-2,106 million.

For the just concluded quarter, the company's IT services segment revenue was at USD 2,048.9 million, an increase of 2.5 per cent year-on-year, a Wipro statement said.

The operating margin for IT services in the just-ended quarter improved year-on-year to 18.1 per cent. The net income at Rs 2,552.7 crore, translated into 35.1 per cent increase.

Commenting on the earning scorecard, Abidali Z Neemuchwala, Wipro's CEO and Managing Director said: "We had a good in-quarter execution on both revenues and margins. The overall growth was broad based with 6 out of 7 industry verticals growing on a year on year basis..."

He said that the company signed a large deal in India aligned to its strategy of taking global offerings to India customers. Jatin Dalal, Chief Financial Officer of Wipro, said that the company delivered operating margins in a tight range after absorbing the impact of two months of wage hike.
