Comments by Motilal Oswal
Maintaining a buy rating, Motilal Oswal commented, "TCS's 3Q deal wins remained stable at USD7.6b, with no mega deal. We view the stability in deal wins in the absence of mega deals as positive. This also implies a higher annual contract value (ACV) that should support near-term growth." The firm also said, "IT Services has entered into a technology upcycle, with Cloud migration and Digital transformation-led deals coming into the market."However, TCS' net profit of Rs. 97.7b increased 1.5% QoQ, which was below the firm's estimate due to the miss on operating margin.
