Bringing together ease of use and professional performance, the EcoStyle PC is ideal for small office or home offices owners.

The UK based Axon Group is into consultancy services to multinational organizations that have chosen SAP as their strategic enterprise platform.

Axon Group has 2000 employees. The Q1 revenue for Axon was 204.5 mn pounds in 2007. The profit after tax for the same period was 20.2 mn pounds. According to sources in Infosys, transfer of ownership will be completed by November.

Kris Gopalkrishnan, CEO of Infosys said, “This strategic combination of our groups will accelerate the realization of our common aspiration - that of becoming the most respected provider of business transformational services in the global marketplace”.

The Axon Group Web site carry the following statement in its latest news section

On 25 August 2008, the boards of Axon and Infosys Technologies Limited ("Infosys") announced that agreement had been reached on the terms of a recommended cash offer to be made by Infosys for the entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of Axon (the "Offer"). The Offer, which is expected to be implemented by way of a scheme of arrangement, values Axon’s existing issued and to be issued (fully diluted) share capital at approximately £407 million (US$800 million) on a cum-dividend basis.

The Shares of Axon are currently trading at 502 pounds, up by 2% against yesterday's close.

About Axon Group

Axon is a business transformation consultancy that designs, implements and supports solutions that address complex business issues faced by large organizations who have selected SAP as their strategic enterprise platform. The company provides services in the field of Business Consultancy, Solution Implementation and Application Management.

The company has recently signed a joint venture with Pratt & Whitney to establish a world-class SAP services centre in Puerto Rico. Axon also executed few acquisitions recently. It's subsidiary Axon Solutions Inc. has acquired the business of EnterSys Group L.P., a leading provider of SAP consulting services to the oil, gas & chemical sector in North America. It has also acquired the business of SCM Solutions L.P. ('SCM'), a provider of specialist supply chain SAP consulting services in North America.

Axon's Financials

As per the latest Annual Report available for the year endind December31st,2007.

  • Turnover* up 49% to £204.5m (2006: £137.5m):
    • US generated revenues of  £74m, 36% of the group, up from 23% in 2006
    • The proportion of revenues generated by our top 10 clients reduced to 67% (2006: 74%)


  • Strong profit performance with adjusted operating profit** up 65% to £36.5m (2006: £22.1m)
    • Operating profit up 69% to £30.6m (2006: £18.1m)*
    • Profit before tax* up 67% to £29.5m (2006: £17.7m)
    • Adjusted profit before tax** up 63% to £35.5m (2006: £21.8m)


  • Successful integration of acquisitions:
    • Two US acquisitions made in Q4 2006 were fully integrated in 2007 and now trade under the Axon name
    • The acquisition of JSPC, an SAP listed firm trading in Malaysia and China has now been fully integrated into Axon’s existing Malaysian off-shore centre


  • Diluted earnings per share up 56% to 31.7p (2006: 20.3p)


  • Proposed final dividend of 2.5p (2006 2.25p) making a total dividend per share for the year of 4.5p (2006: 4.0p)


Investment guru is of the view that the merger of Axon group with Infosys would help it tap the North America and UK markets where Axon was doing exceedingly well as well as strengthen its position in the Business Consultancy services. The deal at around 20 times the earnings of Axon is surely not an attractive deal as far as price is concerned but the long term benefits in terms of market share and access to Axon clients would be significant. Since it is a small ticket acquisition, the share price of Infosys would remain more or less range-bound.

Apple iphone 3G priced at Rs.31,000 for 8GB, Rs.36,000 for 16 GB

Apple i-phone launch to be a flop show in India

Good news for companies like Nokia and Samsung and Bad news for those who were eagerly waiting for the launch of Apple iphone 3G in India at a eye catching price of Rs. 8400. The dreams have been dashed , with Vodafone announcing the prices of iPhone in India. Vodafone and Airtel are launching the iPhone on 22nd August in India. The 8GB Model would cost you a whooping Rs.31,000 and the 16GB version would cost Rs. 36,000.

The most important factor in creating hype for the Apple phone was the Pricing Factor. These i-phones have been priced in UK at $ 200 which is equivalent to Rs. 8600 at current forex rates. Most of the Indians who were planning to buy an I phone in India had built an expectation of a price between 8000-12000. But the prices announced by Vodafone is substantially higher. The irony is that the 3G services are still not functional in India and hence it would not be possible to use all the features of i-phone in India.

I had built an expectation that I will go for I-hone if it is priced around 15000, but now I have made up my mind not to go for it and wait for price corrections to happen before I buy it. I would continue with my good old Nokia phone till then.

The pricing for Apple phone in India should definitely bring smiles to Nokia and Samsung as they were expecting a major hit to their market share with launch of Apple iPhone. They can be relaxed now since Apple with this pricing cannot gain a strong foothold in the Indian markets where the customers are on a constant look out for quality but at affordable price. I think Apple would miss an excellent opportunity to create a strong base for its product in Indian markets cos of its pricing.

For those of you who still want to join the bandwagon, If you have pre-registered for the i-phone you would have received an SMS regarding the price from Vodafone and you would have to do advance booking by paying Rs. 10,000 today or latest by tomorrow. You would be given an appointment time for collecting your i-phone on a designated date. The offer is on first come,first serve basis.

EAC Outlook for 2008-09 on Indian Economy

Has Indian economy Peaked ?

The Economic Advisroy council to the prime minister,headed by Dr. C. Rangarajan, has come out with the Economic outlook for the year 2008-09. The Report has thrown some interesting parameters to gauge the present condition of our India's economic growth in past several years and estimates for current year. The report has pegged India's economy to grow at 7.7% in the year 2008-09 against 9% last year. The council has expressed concern over negative global clues like crude oil and sub prime on one hand and inflation and slowdown in consumption and investment rate on the other. What does this suggest ? Has the Indian economy reached the peak of its economic growth cycle and has it started to slow down ? Let us look at some of the facts and figures and try to find out the truth behind India's story.

Economic Growth- Stepping down the ladder

  • Indian economy has grown 9% in 2007-08 against 9.6% in 2006-07 and 9.4% in 2005-06. Our economy has grown at an average rate of 8.8% in the last 5 years. However, we are expected to clock a growth rate of just 7.7% for the current year 2008-09.

  • The farm sector has seen tremendous growth in the last 4 years with average growth of 3.5%. However, the growth rate looks unsustainable in absence of focussed approach on rural infrastructure and technical improvements in productivity.

  • The Manufacturing sector, after posting a record high growth of 12% in 2006-07 is expected to grow by 7.2% in 2008-09 which signifies that this sector is witnessing increased pressure of slowdown in consumption which again is a factor of rising inflation.

  • Other sectors such as Construction,Trade, Hotels,Transport etc. are all expected to post a single digit growth against double digit growth recorded last year. This doesn't auger well for companies operating in these sectors.

  • Finance,Insurance, Real Estate and Business Services are expected to post 10% growth against 13.9% growth posted in 2006-07.

  • Per Capita GDP growth is also expected to be at 6.2% against 8.1% clocked in 2006-07.

  • India's population is expected to stand at 1.154 billion against 1.106 billion registered in 2005-06.

International Economics- Ugly Picture

  • The global economy has been subjected to the twin onslaught of a financial
    crisis that has gripped capital markets, and a sharp increase in the prices of primary goods, particularly those of crude petroleum and food. Simultaneous turmoil in financial, energy, and food sectors is unprecedented in recent world economic history.

  • This has adversely affected consumer confidence and prospects for world economic growth, dented a range of asset prices, heightened inflationary expectations and is severely testing theories of ‘decoupling’ through global contagion.

  • While expected losses from US subprime exposures have by now been mostly acknowledged, and banks have been able to raise capital in response, delinquencies and foreclosures in the US housing markets continue to rise sharply, house prices continue to plummet, loan deterioration has moved beyond subprime and housing portfolios, bank balance sheets and equity prices continue to be under pressure, and credit markets are still to normalize. It is therefore too early to assess whether the worst of the turmoil and loss of asset values is behind us.

Consumption Vs. Investment Driven Growth

The contribution of investment to growth has actually been as greater than that of consumption till 2005-06. The contribution of domestic consumption expenditure to overall GDP growth has been fairly steady since 2005-06, while its relative share in growth has risen over the past two years. This trend is projected to continue in 2008-09 also. Incurrent year, we expect to see both investment and consumption expenditure growth to slow down a bit.

Inflation - Enemy at Home

Inflation has skyrocketed from 3.8% at the end of December,2007 to 7.8% at the end of March,2008. It moved up further at 12.44 % as of 2nd August,2008. The rise in inflation is primarily contributed by rise in prices of Crude Oil, Commodities like Steel, and food prices of late.

The council is of the view that tight monetary policy, cooling down of Crude Oil and good monsoon can bring the inflation rate down to 8-9 percent by March 2008-09.

Besides the above factors, the employment rate has shown significant improvement in last 5 years nut the rate of growth is expected to slow down a bit. We have also witnessed wide variations in state wise emplyment growth which suggests huge divide between states.

To sum up, Year 2006-07 was the golden year for the Indian economy in which most of the sectors have given highest growth rates. However, the growth rate has slowed down significantly due to negative gloabl cues and pressure of rising inflation back at home. Hence , we can say that a brake has got applied to the economy which was operating in th top gear. We are still much behind china in terms of economic growth and the overall assessemnt says that though the pace of growth has slowed down, it's not the end of the world. The shape of India's growth story in the coming years would depend on how it deals with these evils of growth and resume its fast track growth. The peak is yet to come.

    Govt. approves Sixth Pay commission report

    Independence Day gift for Govt. Employees

    Good news for Central Government employees and defence forces. UPA Government has approved the 6th Pay commission report which was submitted to it in March,2008. The Six Pay commission was headed by Justice B N Srikrishna.

    Highlights of Sixth Pay Commission Report

    • The average increase in salaries is to the tune of 21%.

    • The hike is with effect from January 1,2006. You can download the Salary Calculator spreadsheet to find out your Revised Salary after the pay hike.

    • The hiked salary would be given to the employees beginning September this year and the arrears from January 2006 would be given in cash in two installments - 40 per cent this fiscal and 60 per cent in 2009-10.

    • The government has increased the minimum entry level salary of a government employee to Rs 7,000 against Rs 6,660 recommended by the Commission.

    • The rate of Annual Increment has also been increased from 2.5% to 3%.

    • At least three assured promotions for all defence forces personnel and civilian employees under the modified Assured Career Progression scheme.

    • While civilians would get this after 10, 20 and 30 years of service, defence forces jawans would be promoted under ACP after 8, 16 and 24 years.

    • The government has also approved Military Service Pay for armed forces personnel, under which officers would get Rs 6,000 over and above their pay per month.

    • The lowest limit of disability pension for defence personnel has been doubled to Rs 3100 a month.

    • The Revision in pay structure would increase the total emoluments of an employee at the lowest level beyond Rs. 10,000 per month (including allowances)

    • In a significant modification of the Pay Commission recommendation, the government has raised the fitment rate, which helps in arriving at higher allowances in view of merger of 50 per cent DA with basic pay, in revised pay bands to 40 per cent as against 28 per cent.

    Impact of Pay Commission recommendations

    • Well, this is a three cheers news for the Central government employees as well as the armed forces since they would get 21% higher pay than what they used to get earlier. Their friends in private sector may feel jealous about it.

    • Since a large chuck of the Government employees come under the Middle Class segment, this would help increase their purchasing power and hence standard of living. The arrears from January,2006 would be an additional bonus and would mainly be used as saving corpus.

    • The Pay hike would cost the exchequer Rs 22,131 crore -- Rs 15,717 crore on the General Budget and Rs 6,414 crore on the Railway Budget -- in 2008-09. This would increase the fiscal deficit as a % of GDP.

    • The government would have to find additional sources of funds to bridge the deficit. Since the Macro environment is already worsening due to higher inflation, lower IIP and lower GDP growth estimates, the pay revision would be an additional challenge for the government.

    Real Estate - DDA Housing Scheme'08

    DDA flats - An excellent opportunity to invest

    DDA is launching the Housing Scheme'08 on 6th August,2008. There are around 5000 flats on offer. See my post on highlights of the scheme. The question is " Should one apply for the flats under this scheme" ? Investment Guru is of the view that one should apply for the flats under the scheme. It's just like applying for an IPO in the stock markets. You are going to block Rs. 1.5 Lac of you funds and if you get allotment the gains would be significant. If you are cash starved there is another attractive option of getting the registration amount finance and wait for getting lucky in the draw.

    Why is DDA Scheme attractive ?
    The major attraction of the scheme is that the flats are being offered at a price which is around 30-40% lower than the prevailing prices in these localities. The chances of real estate prices going down in these location because of the lower prices offered by DDA is very low, since the number of flats on sale are quite low in comparison to the total real estate matrix of these locations. So an allotment in this scheme is going to generate significant gains for the investors. Real estate prices in locations like dwarka has seen consistent rise and has offered excellent gains to those who have applied in the 2006 Housing scheme. This time around too, people who get allotment are likely to fetch a premium in the range of 2-5 lacs on the DDA prices.

    I don't have money for Registration amount ?
    No problem. As soon as the scheme is launched you will see a flood of advertisements in the newspapers regarding banks and financial institutions offering loan for the Registration amount. In other words, If you don't have money for Registration or if you don't want to block your own cash reserves for this, you can avail a financing option from banks for registration amount. Banks generally come up with a scheme where they fix a Non-refundable amount for financing the Registration amount.

    In 2006, Banks came with a Fixed amount of Rs. 5000 for financing the Registration amount. This year it may be bit more in view of higher interest rates. Suppose banks fixes Rs. 7000 this time around, it would mean that in lieu of putting 1.5 lacs of your own, you would pay nothing but Rs. 7000 to a bank for financing the registration amount. If you do not get allotment then Rs. 7000 would be your loss in terms of financing the deal. If you get allotment, it would a peanut considering the gains for your allotted flat.

    I want to sell on allotment, Can I do so ?
    There is an active market for trading once you get the allotment of flats under the scheme. So, if you didn't intended to hold on to the flat, but just wanted to grab the premium for allotment of the flat, you can sell the flat in the open market.
