Stock market LIVE | Dhruv Mudaraddi, research analyst at Stoxbox, on Wipro results - Topline misses estimate; Beat on PAT

# Wipro Ltd. reported Q1FY24 results, with a marginal miss on the revenue front and better-than-expected performance on PAT margin level.

# Revenue declined 1.5% QoQ / up 6.0% YoY in INR terms to Rs. 22,831 crores vs. market estimates of Rs. 22,993 crores. Revenue in CC terms declined 2.8% QoQ / up 1.1% YoY. The revenue decline in the quarter was seen in hi-tech vertical and financial services and largely impacted due to softer discretionary spending.

# EBIT fell 5.5% QoQ / up 12.1% YoY to Rs. 3,458 crores, while EBIT margin stood at 15.1%, down 63 bps QoQ and below market estimates of 15.7%.

# Net income stood at Rs. 2,886 crores (down 6.7% QoQ / up 12.8% YoY), while PAT margin came in at 12.6% vs. market estimates of 12.1%, due to higher other income which grew sharply by 37.2% YoY to Rs. 648 crores.

# Attrition in IT services stood at 17.3% in Q1FY24 compared to 23.0% in Q1FY23.

# Large deal TCV stood at USD 1.2 billion in Q1FY24 as against USD 1.1 billion in Q1FY23.

# The company is using generative AI for multiple things. To accelerate innovations in AI, the company has announced a $1 billion investment in AI.

# Management expects revenue from IT Services business for Q2FY24 to be in the range of -2.0% to +1.0%, in CC terms.


Wipro posted tepid results, with revenue missing market estimates but focus on operational improvements and productivity enhancements kept bottom line on the growth trajectory. Globally, businesses have been reducing discretionary spending in response to a weak macro environment and was visible on the company’s revenue as well. Further, the company announced a USD 1 billion investment in AI in the next three years which shows that the company is focusing to advance its foundation in AI, data and analytics capabilities. The declining attrition and robust growth in deal bookings augur well for the company’s future but current macro headwinds and degrowth in revenue is a cause for worry. Going forward, we expect the management to work further on improving operational efficiencies against the backdrop of near-term uncertainties.

Stock market updates | Yes Securities on Federal Bank - Margin contraction is in the rearview mirror

Management retained full year margin guidance at 3.3% and called for a 7-8 bps sequential expansion in 2Q: The sequential guidance does not factor in any potential equity capital raise. Management expect yield on advances to expand to 9.27% in 2Q and cost of deposits to inch lower. Since incremental slippages were about 0.4bn, the incremental interest reversal would be about 0.1-0.15bn for the quarter.

Loan growth guidance for FY24 has been retained at 18-20% and deposits growth would match this outcome: Management stated that the worst of the rate war is behind us in the deposits market. Furthermore, NR deposits have started to pick up and the phenomenon of remittances not translating to deposits is starting to reverse.

Management acknowledged that the share of retail deposits has adjusted lower and would now be in the 85-88% range. For other banks, the share has stayed stable because they were at a lower base.

Overall asset quality remained under control while retail slippages rose sequentially due to the end of moratorium on restructured book: The annualised retail slippage ratio amounted to 1.92% for the quarter, up 25 bps QoQ. Of the roughly 2.5bn worth of retail slippages for the quarter, about 30% emerged from the restructured book. The moratorium for Covid-restructured accounts from 2021 ended in March 2023.

We maintain ‘Buy’ rating on FED with an unchanged price target of 175: We value the standalone bank at 1.2x FY25 P/BV for an FY24E/25E/26E RoE profile of 15.0%/15.1%/15.6%. We assign a value of 8.7 per share to the subsidiaries, based on SOTP.

Stock market updates: Yes Securities on HCL Tech - Performance below expectation due to softness In ER&D segment

Result Synopsis

HCL Technologies (HCLT) reported muted performance that was below expectation. Both, revenue growth and EBIT margin were below estimates; The Services segment (90% of revenue) was down 1.0% QoQ in cc terms. The Software segment was also down 3.1% QoQ in cc terms. The revenue growth was led by strong performance in BFSI vertical (up 5.1% QoQ in cc terms). There was sequential decline in EBIT margin (down 122 bps QoQ) led by decline in revenue and increase in SG&A. Employee attrition continues to moderate as LTM attrition was down 320 bps QoQ to 16.3%.

We believe that the long-term demand story remains intact led by IT transformation and cost optimization projects. However, the macroeconomic factors in the US and Europe remain concerning and that is reflected in clients being more watchful of the situation and consequently, that continues to impact near term revenue performance. The decline in employee attrition and improving employee pyramid should support margin in FY24. We estimate revenue CAGR of 10.4% over FY23‐25E with average EBIT margin of 19.1%. We maintain our ADD rating on the stock with revised target price of 1,228/share at 17.5x on FY25E EPS. The stock trades at PER of 18.3x/15.8x on FY24E/FY25E EPS.

On the technical front, the 50 index gapped up 100 points on opening yesterday tracking global cues and marked a new life-high at 19567 as momentum persisted during the first half of the trading session.

Stock market updates: Wipro’s revenue declines, industry outlook bleak

Wipro Ltd reported a dollar revenue decline of 2.1% in the June quarter, after Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Ltd and HCL Technologies Ltd posted tepid numbers earlier, stoking growth concerns in India’s $245 billion IT services industry this fiscal year.

Worryingly, Wipro has forecast that its revenue could contract again in the September quarter. The country’s fourth-largest IT services firm estimates revenue could fall by 2% or improve by 1% in constant currency terms. Constant currency does not take into account exchange rate fluctuations.

Wipro’s revenue in the first quarter totalled $2.78 billion, a 2.1% sequential decline and only 0.81% better than the year-ago period. In constant currency terms, sequential growth fell by 2.8%. A Bloomberg survey of 20 analysts estimated profit to come in at $360.9 million on net sales of $2.78 billion. (Read more here)
