Infosys pushes announcing September quarter results to October 24

The information technology major said a meeting of the Board of Directors will be held on October 23 and October 24.

Information technology major Infosys on Tuesday said it was deferring the announcement of its second-quarter results by more than a week, for the first time in recent years. The results of the quarter ending on September 30, 2017 will be the first report since Vishal Sikka quit as the chief executive officer of the company on August 18 and Nandan Nilekani returned as the non-executive chairman on August 24.

Infosys generally announces its quarter results within 15 days of the beginning of the new quarter. In its June quarter filing, Infosys had said it will announce the September quarter report on October 13, 2017.

However, the company on Tuesday said a meeting of the Board of Directors will be held on October 23, 2017 and October 24, 2017, to consider the audited consolidated financial results of the company and its subsidiaries for the quarter ending on September 30, 2017. “Accordingly, the trading window will be closed from September 16, 2017 and will re-open on October 27, 2017,” Infosys said in its regulatory filing.

On September 4, Infosys’ promoters had offered to sell 1.77 crore shares worth Rs 2,083 crore as part of the company’s Rs 13,000-crore buyback offer.

Some of the most significant innovations in automotive history made their debut in this iconic automobile

The latest version features India's first BS VI norms-compliant engine and a host of 'intelligent' features.

The S-Class, also known as Sonderklasse or special class, represents Mercedes Benz’ top-of-the-line sedan line up. Over the decades, this line of luxury vehicles has brought significant automotive technologies to the mainstream, with several firsts to its credit and has often been called the best car in the world. It’s in the S-Class that the first electronic ESP and ABS anti-lock braking system made their debut in the 20th century.

Twenty first-century driver assistance technologies which predict driver-behaviour and the vehicle’s course in order to take preventive safety measures are also now a staple of the S-Class. In the latest 2018 S-Class, the S 350 d, a 360-degree network of cameras, radars and other sensors communicate with each other for an ‘intelligent’ driving experience.

The new S-Class systems are built on Mercedes Benz’s cutting-edge radar-based driving assistance features, and also make use of map and navigation data to calculate driving behaviour. In cities and on other crowded roads, the Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC helps maintain the distance between car and the vehicle in front during speeds of up to 210 kmph. In the same speed range, Active Steering Assist helps the driver stay in the centre of the lane on stretches of straight road and on slight bends. Blind Spot Assist, meanwhile, makes up for human limitations by indicating vehicles present in the blind spot during a lane change. The new S-Class also communicates with other cars equipped with the Car-to-X communication system about dicey road conditions and low visibility due to fog, rain, accidents etc. en route.

The new S-Class can even automatically engage the emergency system when the driver is unable to raise an alarm. Active Emergency Stop Assist brings the car to a stop if it detects sustained periods of inactivity from the driver when Active Steering Assist is switched on. If the driver doesn’t respond to repeated visual and audible prompts, it automatically activates the emergency call system and unlocks the car to provide access to first responders.

The new Mercedes-Benz S 350 d in India features another notable innovation – the country’s first BS VI norms-compliant car engine, in accordance with government regulations to control vehicular pollution. Debuting two years before the BS VI deadline of 2020, the S 350 d engine also remains compatible with the current BS IV fuels.

The S 350 d is an intelligent car made in India, for Indian roads - in the Mercedes Benz S-Class tradition. See the video below to know what drives the S-Class series by Mercedes Benz.
