Maintaining a buy rating, ICICI Direct said, "Overall revenue mix has been inching towards off-shoring as in the last 4 quarters, onshore revenue mix has come down from 23% to 20%, which is a tailwind to margin. The management does not expect materially different mix going forward; guided for healthy EBITDA margin band of 28-32%."

Additionally, the brokerage firm thinks, "Key beneficiary of improved digital demand, industry-leading revenue growth, and healthy capital allocation prompt us to be positive. The revenue CAGR is expected to 16.7% over FY21-24E." Traction in customer care, RPA, analytics & content development, cross-sell and up-sell to Personiv clients to drive growth - is a key trigger area for the company to boost.
