TCS Q3 Results Live Updates: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), the largest IT services company in India, disclosed financial results for the quarter ending December 2023, surpassing revenue expectations but falling short on the bottom line.

The leading Indian software service provider achieved a 2% year-on-year (YoY) growth in consolidated net profit, reaching 11,058 crore, while revenue experienced a 4% increase, totaling 60,583 crore. Analysts' projections had anticipated revenue at 60,119 crore and a profit of 11,446 crore.

Additionally, the board recommended a special dividend payout of 18 per share and an interim dividend of 9 per share.

Sequentially, the revenue demonstrated a 1.5% increase, while the profit saw a 2.5% decline. TCS attributed this profit decline to a one-time charge of 958 crore incurred during the quarter for the settlement of a legal claim, which had an adverse impact on the bottom line. 

The earnings before interest and taxes or EBIT margin was 25%, against 24.3% a quarter ago.  The company secured contracts totaling $8.1 billion in the third quarter, marking a decrease from the $11.2 billion in deals it had acquired in the preceding September quarter.
