ICICI Securities Report

Segments like regional markets (up 7.3% QoQ, constant currency), manufacturing (up 7.1%) and communications (up 5.5%), which did not fully recover in September 2020, led Tata Consultancy Services Ltd.’s Q3 growth.

Near term growth (H1 CY21) will be optically strong, courtesy -

1. low base effect (prior two years), and 2. ramp-up of captive/large deals.

However, as focus shifts from ‘recovery’ to ‘growth’, steady-state growth (Sep-21++) will be the key monitorable.

Sustainability of utilisation and offshore effort, seemingly at their peaks, is a big ask.

Reversal of some Covid-19 led savings, large deal ramp-ups and weaker U.S.dollar can upset street expectation of further margin expansion.
