Strong business volumes drive Tata Consultancy Services’ Q1 performance

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), the leading IT services, consulting and business solutions firm reported its consolidated financial results according to Indian GAAP for the quarter and financial year ended June 30, 2011.

N Chandrasekaran, chief executive officer and managing director, TCS, said: “Our customer-focused organisation and balanced business model helped us drive growth across all our major customer segments and operating regions in Q1. TCS continues to partner with many customers to help them successfully execute their transformation agendas as well as negotiate a challenging business environment.” He added: “Though we continue to see steady demand flow for our services, the uncertain global macroeconomic environment demands that we adopt an entrepreneurial approach and remain agile to capture growth opportunities as they emerge.”

S Mahalingam, chief financial officer and executive director, said: “By focusing and optimising operations to support our growth, we have been able to limit the erosion in operating margins by using various levers like utilisation and productivity.” He added: “We remain watchful but do not expect the current macro issues to impede business decision-making in those markets.”

Growth in Q1 was balanced and broad-based. Growth across industries was led by hi-tech, retail and BFSI. There was balanced growth across IT and other service lines led by infrastructure, assurance and global consulting services. All markets including the USA and Europe grew alongside growth markets like India and Asia Pacific.
