TCS Announces Interim Dividend. 5 Takeaways from TCS Q1 Results

India's largest IT services company in terms of revenue Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) reported its first quarter results post market hours today.

In its Q4 results, TCS had reported a record high attrition of 17.4%. So, investors were keen to know what the IT giant had to report in its Q1 results for financial year 2022-23.

Earlier, the Tata group company had stated that attrition rate moderated and was expected to peak in the June quarter.

TCS is the largest recruiter among IT companies.

When TCS reported results for the March 2022 quarter, several brokerages anticipated margins to decline led by supply-side pressures and decline in utilisation due to ramp-up in fresher hiring.

Both, Infosys and TCS reported elevated attrition rates last quarter and it was a clear indicator that margins could come under pressure in this quarter as manpower expenses rise.

In fact, majority of IT stocks fell due to the high attrition rate. Attrition was a big concern and a main reason why TCS share price was falling.

Well, what happened this quarter?

Here are five takeaways from TCS' quarterly results.

  • Net profit witnessed a marginal growth of 5.2% year-on-year (YoY) growth on a consolidated basis to Rs 94.8 bn. Profit was Rs 90.1 bn in the same quarter last year.
  • Revenues grew by 16.2% YoY to Rs 527.6 bn compared to Rs 454.1 bn in the year-ago quarter.
  • TCS' order book stood at US$8.2 bn. The company said it added nine new clients to the 100 million-plus band YoY while 19 clients were added to the US$50 m-plus band.
  • Manpower addition stood at 14,136 for the June quarter, taking the total workforce strength to 6,06,331.

    IT services attrition was 19.7% on the last twelve months basis.
  • As usual, the company was back to rewarding shareholders with dividends. TCS announced an interim dividend of Rs 8 per share.

Here's a snapshot of key highlights from the company's filing on BSE.
