In a statement today board said, “In recent days, there has been considerable discussion of the relationship between the Board of Directors of Infosys Limited and Mr. N. R.

Infosys further said that as the Board has stated on numerous occasions, it takes the company’s reputation for high corporate governance standards with the utmost seriousness. Hence, it has, as previously disclosed, decided that it will engage in further broad-based shareholder consultations to determine what further, if any, the Company can take to ensure that it continues to adhere to high governance standards.

The Board has also approved the appointment of the executive recruitment firm Egon Zehnder to work with its Nominations and Remunerations Committee to review and identify the right candidate to be the Company’s next CEO and MD.   Additionally, the Nominations and Remunerations Committee will deliberate on the long-term governance structure of the Board and present its recommendations at the meeting of the Board in October.
