Patni CEO Jeya Kumar said that the company’s overall performance from the quarter has been ahead of their expectations on all counts.

“While the global macro economic environment is still thwart with risks and challenges, the fading of solvency risks is positive with stable market place. Deflationary pressure on overall global IT services market is likely to continue for foreseeable future; however, the offshoring and global delivery services market share will increase over time,” he said.
