Outlook and Valuation

TCS had results throughout the quarter that were in line with expectations. But the company's sales increased 2.2% on a quarter-over-quarter basis and 13% YoY in CC terms. Since the attrition rate and sub-con cost have improved sequentially, the company's margin is expected to continue to grow in the upcoming month, according to management. If we look at a sequential basis, the demand scenario is still robust over the entire geographic area, but there are some delays in the decision-making process. Since the management predicted that FY24 will have balanced growth rather than the stronger growth of the previous two years, the near-term outlook for earnings appears cloudy, but taking into account the robust demand will accelerate growth. The company is trading at 25x multiple on FY24E EPS which is above pre-covid multiple.
