TCS Q1 Results: Starting the new financial year on a healthy note, Indian IT bellwether Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Thursday, July 11, reported a healthy 9 per cent year-on-year (YoY) rise in Q1FY25 net profit, which was broadly in line with market expectations.

On some parameters, the company exceeded market expectations. For example, it said all major markets and almost all verticals returned to sequential growth during the quarter.

The company's chief executive officer (CEO) and managing director (MD), K Krithivasan, said: “I am pleased to report a strong start to the new fiscal year with all-round growth across industries and markets. We are continuing to expand our client relationships, create new capabilities in emerging technologies and invest in innovation, including a new AI-focused TCS PacePort™ in France, IoT lab in the US and expanding our delivery centres in Latin America, Canada and Europe.”

AI.Cloud, Cyber Security and Enterprise Solutions led the growth this quarter," TCS said in its media statement.
