Outlook

From a long-term perspective, Axis Securities believe TCS will build a resilient business model by securing multiple long-term contracts with the world’s leading brands. With an encouraging growth in volumes and efficient execution, the company is expected to regain its operating margins at the desired level of 26%-27%. However, probable delays in the ramp-up in the won deals remain a key risk to the company’s operating performance, it added.
