IT giant Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) will announce its Q1 FY23 results by 5.30 pm on Friday, kick-starting the results season for the information technology sector. As per estimates, TCS will likely register a revenue growth between 3.6 and 4 per cent in constant currency terms (cc) quarter-on-quarter (QoQ). The company's year-on-year (YoY) growth is estimated to be between 11 to 16 per cent for the first quarter of FY23.
According to Motilal Oswal, the IT major's demand commentary could be strong even as margins may have been hit due to wage hikes. They expect the company would be a key beneficiary of long-term structural tailwinds among the technology pack.
Here's how TCS has performed in the last four quarters:
For the March 2022 quarter, TCS had reported a 7 per cent rise in consolidated net profit to Rs 9,926 crore. This was against a net profit of Rs 9,246 crore in the year-ago period. The company's consolidated revenue had grown 16 per cent to Rs 50,591 crore in the quarter under review from Rs 43,705 crore a year ago.
Meanwhile, TCS's banking and finance segment revenue had risen to 11.2 per cent at Rs 19,532 crore. This was the first time the IT major had crossed the Rs 50,000-crore revenue mark.
For the December 2021 quarter, TCS had posted a net profit of Rs 9,763 crore, up 12.2 per cent year-on-year, while profit for the quarter grew 1.4 per cent on a sequential basis. The Mumbai-headquartered company had reported revenue of Rs 48,885 crore, up 16.3 per cent YoY and 4.3 per cent QoQ in Q3FY22.
The firm's total contract value (TCV) for Q3FY22 was at $7.6 billion compared to $6.8 billion in Q3FY21, TCS said. EBIT for the quarter was at 25 per cent as the margins were impacted due to increased focus on hiring and retention of talent, said the company.
For the September 2021 quarter, the IT major's consolidated net profit had risen 6.84 per cent to Rs 9,624 crore on a 3.21 per cent increase in net sales to Rs 46,867 crore on a QoQ basis.
