Genpact Limited (NYSE:G) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating in a research note issued to investors on Friday.

According to Zacks, “Genpact reported better-than-expected results in third-quarter 2017 backed by growth in Global Client BPO and transformation services. Management was particularly optimistic about the positive response to Genpact’s newly launched tagline, "Transformation happens here." However, customer concentration is a huge concern for the company. Moreover, a number of acquisitions over the years have negatively impacted the company's balance sheet. Additionally, anticipated government regulation in the U.S. over outsourcing (H1B Visa, Cross-border tax) is a headwind. Nevertheless, it is a dominant name in the business process outsourcing (BPO) market based on its domain expertise in business analytics, digital and consulting sectors. The company has also outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis.”
