COO, Infosys |

Hours after Tata Consultancy Services announced that it would consider a share buyback, fellow IT bellwether Infosys said it would not be averse to doing the same.

Speaking to CNBC-TV18, UB Pravin Rao, Chief Operating Officer at Infosys , said all options were being explored and that the company's board would decide on the timeline of the buyback and the capital allocation policy, adding that a share buyback would happen at an "appropriate time".

While Cognizant recently announced a USD 3.4 billion buyback plan, Infosys is being pressured by two of its ex-CFOs to consider a share buyback.

Experts believe that share buyback could emerge as a trend in the sector amid rising concerns that IT companies are struggling to put excess cash to investment use in a growth-challenged environment.

Rao insisted that there had been no cutbacks in discretionary spending and that overall demand remained decent with a good degree of optimism at the macro level.

Admitting that the sector is undergoing a sea change, Rao said it was difficult to say whether 2017 will be a better year than 2016.
