Tech Mahindra's Q1FY24 numbers came weak on expected lines. Its profit and EBITDA declined but revenue saw a low growth on a yearly basis. The company accepted that the June quarter was a challenging one and it said it is confident that it will deliver long-term value for its customers and shareholders.

"Our results this quarter reflect the uncertainty in the global economy and the IT sector. We are confident that we have the right strategy and the right team to overcome this temporary setback and deliver long-term value for our customers and shareholders," said CP Gurnani, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer of Tech Mahindra.
