Result Expectation of Top IT Companies TCS, HCL Technologies and Infosys
The top 3 Indian IT companies — TCS, Infosys, and HCL Technologies — are anticipated to post a healthy set of numbers in the first quarter of FY22 earnings. Analysts believe that Nifty IT companies will continue reporting strong momentum with quicker hiring, faster revenue/earnings growth, and higher cash flow conversion.
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS):
TCS is set to announce the April-June quarter earnings of the current fiscal today i.e. 08, July 2021. The street experts expect constant currency growth of 3 percent sequentially, and 30bps of cross-currency tailwinds. In spite of the FY22 wage increments being rolled out from April 2021, EBIT margin decline is expected to be limited to 110bps, due to slight INR depreciation and growth leverage. The major things to watch out for are large deal TCV, outlook on client spending trends and pricing trends, and levers to defend or improve margins in the backdrop of certain supply-side concerns.
TCS reported 18.5% growth in total sales revenues for the Jun-21 quarter on consolidated basis at Rs45,411cr.

HCL Technologies (HCL Tech):
Analysts expect HCL Tech to quantify its double-digit revenue growth outlook. The street experts see weak sequential revenue growth. Investors are likely to focus on the outlook on CY21 client spending/IT budget trends, update on revenue and margin outlook for FY22, and measures to defend/protect margins in the backdrop of supply-side pressures. Analysts anticipate ramp-ups on deals won in 4QFY21 in 2Q/3QFY22 and better clarity on guidance.
