TCS is a part of the Tata Group, and holds the distinction of becoming the first Indian software company to cross the coveted US$ 1 bn revenue mark in FY03. During the nine-months ending December 2003 (9mFY04), TCS reported consolidated revenues and profits of Rs 50.8 bn and Rs 11.4 bn respectively. The company's operating margins (including depreciation) stand at 25.2%.

The company derives the largest chunk (77%) of its revenues from the application development and maintenance services. The remaining is being contributed by enterprise solutions and package implementation (20%), asset leveraged solutions (2%) and consulting and other services (1%). Quite unlike its domestic peers like Infosys and Satyam, TCS' revenue share from the US region is a low 64%, with another major chunk (20%) coming from the European region. Also, contribution of Indian revenues for the company is at a high of 13%, unlike its peers who have miniscule (2%-4%) contribution from the same. However, around 69% of this high contribution of Indian revenues is result of the contribution of CMC, which TCS had acquired from the Government of India in 2001.

TCS has a clientele of 491 and a major 19% contribution to revenues comes from the GE Group alone. The company has a high repeat business of around 97%. As for the delivery model, a high 64% of TCS' revenue comes from its onsite efforts. As a matter of comparison, this figure for Infosys stands at a lower 55%. TCS employed 28,797 employees at the end of December 2003 and its revenue per employee thus stand at Rs 1.8 m, lower than Infosys' Rs 1.9 m at the end of FY04.

TCS, based on its annualised 9mFY04 earnings, has an EPS of Rs 31.9.While this write-up was just a brief regarding the overall business of TCS, we shall put up a detailed IPO report shortly, which will elaborate on the business model of the company as well as its comparative standing with its peers and its growth prospects going forward.The report will also cite the reasons to apply/not apply for the IPO.
