TCS Q1 results: what management says
Rajesh Gopinathan, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Executive Officer of TCS, said, “We are starting the new fiscal year on a high note, with overall growth and deals closed across all of our segments. Pipeline velocity and deal closures continue to be strong, but we remain vigilant given macro-level uncertainties. Our new organizational structure has taken hold, bringing us closer to our customers and making us more agile in a dynamic environment. Looking ahead, we remain confident in the resilience of technology spending and the secular tailwinds driving our growth.

The company’s 23.1% operating margin in the first quarter reflects the impact of its annual salary increase, the high cost of managing talent turnover and the gradual normalization of travel expenses.
