Consolidated Profit before tax (before exceptional item) for the quarter was Rs.2,066 crores, against Rs.6,340 crores for the corresponding quarter last year. The drop in net profits was largely on account of the forex losses, as the US pound, plunged following the Brexit vote.

Most analysts remain slightly worried over the company's forex losses, but, say the healthy growth in all segments and most regions make the case for a strong buy in the stock.

Most of the foreign brokerages have a positive view. Macquaire has an outperform rating on the stock, while CLSA expects the margins to rebound. Deutsche Bank has a hold rating on the stock.
