Tata Consultancy Services Ltd. posted higher sequential revenue growth (in line in U.S. dollar terms) and better margins in Q2 FY23. TCS’ resilience stood out in delivering a similar growth print as it did same time last year (identical QoQ/YoY constanct currency), when the macro environment was less challenging.
Some forward looking indicators are reassuring such as deal bookings ($8.1 billion total contract value versus $8.2 billion in Q1) and continuity in fresher onboarding (35,000 hired in H1 of the more than 40,000 planned for FY23E).
