Concall Highlights

Management Commentries

Geographic Side - According to management, demand looks continue to strong and hence, maintaining the range of TCV between $7-$9bn for FY24 but conversion into revenue is seems to be challenging in the near term as the enterprises are seemed to be cautious on spending and delaying the same but there is no tech budget cut by the large enterprises

·         Vertical Side - The management commentary continues to remain positive on the prime verticals and expects strong growth led by solid deal wins in its core verticals. The pipeline build-up and deal closure activity were robust during the quarter, lending good revenue visibility. 

Growth Highlights

  • TCS had a strong FY23 with revenue growth of 17.6% in rupee terms and 13.7% in constant currency terms.
  • Q4 revenue growth was 16.9% in rupee terms and 10.7% in constant currency.
  • TCS has a strong order book with an all-time high number of large deals.
  • Growth drivers for overall revenue may be more led by Europe than the US in the next two quarters.

Product Launch Highlights

  • TCS has expanded its decade-long partnership with SAS as they continue to transform their business under SAS-FORWARD initiative until 2028. TCS will work with SAS to continue simplifying the landscape by adopting cloud native services and enabling faster time to market. TCS will leverage its industryleading practices to drive a culture of empowered teams and continuous innovation, helping deliver superior customer experience.
  • TCS launched a new commercial fraud solution for banks and other financial services firms and designed a solution with an interactive UI and automated workflows that make it easier for the bank's credit card business to create and launch new products in the market.

Service Highlights

Services: In a challenging environment, clients carefully calibrated spends, prioritizing cost optimization, vendor consolidation and automation initiatives. In-flight technology transformation initiatives continued to be funded but with the expectation of earlier and higher RoI. Growth was led by Cloud, Cyber Security, Enterprise Application Services, and Cognitive Business Operations.

TCS added 2 more clients in the $100 million+ band, bringing the total to 60; 30 more clients in the $50 million+ band, bringing the total to 133; 23 more clients in the $20 million+ band, bringing the total to 291; 22 more clients in the $10 million+ band, bringing the total to 461; 27 more clients in the $5 million+ band, totaling 665 and 59 more clients in the $1 million+ band bringing the total to 1,241.

Financial Performance

Full year performance - FY23

Q4FY23 Performance


TCS's results in terms of sales and profit were lower than anticipated. In percentage terms, revenue increased by only 0.6% QoQ and 10.7% YoY, and during Q4FY23, the margin was 24.5%. As a result, we think the BFSI vertical may have a tepid performance in the near term as a result of the slowdown in the North American region and the political unrest in the US and EU. However, the management maintained a steadfastly bullish attitude regarding the general demand climate and deal closures, which showed no signs of a slowdown in the same. Due to a decrease in attrition and sub-cost, the company's margin has begun to rise over the last two quarters and will continue to do so. In my opinion, the new CEO will bring his or her experience to the table and continue to foster greater growth in the years to come. However, short-term problems may cause some problems with how much money businesses spend on technology, but long-term IT spending is still strong, and TCS concluded the year with solid double-digit growth despite numerous hurdles. The stock presently trades at 28x EPS for the FY25E.
