Infosys loses RBS deal; to cut 3000 jobs

Infosys shares slumped over 3 per cent on Tuesday, following Royal Bank of Scotland’s decision to cancel a project to set up a separate bank in the United Kingdom.

RBS announced last week that it will not pursue its plan to separate and list a new UK standalone bank, Williams & Glyn (W&G), for which Infosys was a key technology partner.

“The Royal Bank of Scotland announced last week that it will no longer pursue its plan to separate and list a new UK standalone bank, Williams & Glyn (W&G), and instead will pursue other options for the divestment of this business. Infosys has been a W&G program technology partner for Consulting, Application Delivery and Testing services, and subsequent to this decision, will carry out an orderly ramp-down of about 3,000 persons, primarily in India, over the next few months”, said Infosys statement.

RBS is a key relationship for Infosys and the company looks forward to further strengthening our strategic partnership and working with them across other strategic and transformation programs, it added.
