New Delhi: IT major Wipro on Tuesday said it will announce its fourth-quarter and FY20 results on 15 April. There are speculations that announcement of corporate earnings for the March quarter could be delayed given the ongoing lockdown amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
"...meeting of the board of directors will be held on 15 April, 2020, inter alia, to consider and approve the condensed audited standalone and consolidated financial results of the company under IndAS for the quarter and year ended 31 March, 2020," Wipro said in a regulatory filing.
It added that the board will also look at the recommendation of final dividend, if any, for the financial year ended March 31, 2020, at the meeting.
The results will be announced after stock market trading hours in India, Wipro said.
Its peers like Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys and HCL Technologies are yet to come up with the dates for announcing their financial results.
Markets regulator SEBI has also given relaxation of 45 days to companies for filing fourth-quarter results and one-month extension to file results for 2019-20.
Besides, relaxation of one month has been given for filing quarterly corporate governance reports and three weeks each for shareholding pattern and statement of investor complaint reports.
