Anand Rathi Report

Key trends and expectations -

  • IT companies’ YoY revenue growth bottomed out in Q1 FY21; accelerating since then; momentum likely to continue.

  • Cost-to-income ratios for direct and indirect costs – softened sharply but reversals have started in Q4 FY21 and may continue.

  • With cost-to-income ratios hardening, Ebitda margins coming under pressure; we expect this to continue.
