"Third quarter is seasonally weak for the IT industry, but weakness in the same period is compounded by extended furloughs and some impact from hurricane Sandy," Rikesh Parikh, VP Markets Strategy and Equities, Motilal Oswal Securities said.
Traditionally, the October-December quarter is a weak quarter for IT companies as the number of working days is lesser compared to other quarters due to the holiday season at the client locations.
