Prabhudas Lilladher expects a modest 77 basis points decline in margins to 25.4% on account of wage hike from 1 October 2020. With there being no other increasing cost item, it expects a positive surprise in margins.
It also expects consensus to revise their revenue growth estimates, as deal wins across the pack are very strong and European geography will outperform in coming quarters.
TCS will post a strong deal win number due to Deutsche and Prudential Financial deal wins, it added.
