October 15, 2007
India's largest outsourcer, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) announced Monday strong growth in revenue and profits for the quarter that ended Sept. 30, despite earlier fears that the appreciation of the Indian rupee against the dollar would drive down profits of Indian outsourcers.
The company has absorbed the impact of the rupee appreciation, and improved its profitability, by a combination of currency hedging and cost management, TCS, of Mumbai, said Monday.
TCS reported revenue of $1.42 billion for the quarter, up 45.2 percent over revenue in the same quarter last year. Its profits for the quarter were $313 million, up 45 percent from the corresponding quarter last year. The company added 9,268 staff during the quarter, and currently employs over 100,000 employees. Foreign nationals made up 8.5 percent of total staff. TCS also added 49 new clients in the quarter...

Indian outsourcer Tata cashes in on offshoring
Revenue was up 42 percent, profit was up 33 percent over the same quarter last year

July 18, 2006
India outsourcer Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Tuesday reported gains in both revenue and profit for the quarter ended June 30, reflecting a growing demand for offshore services and the depreciation of the Indian rupee against major currencies.
TCS, of Mumbai, is India's largest software and services outsourcer.
Revenue for the period was $900 million, up by 42 percent from the same quarter last year. Profit for the quarter increased by 33 percent from a year earlier to $187 million.
The results are based on U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and refer to the first quarter of the company's fiscal year, which runs from April 1 to March 31 next year.
About 53 percent of the company's revenue in the quarter came from exports to North America, with another 27 percent from Europe. The company earned about 41 percent of its revenue from the banking and financial services industry. The company added 62 clients during the quarter, taking the total to 764.
The company hired 4,698 employees, increasing the headcount as of June 30 to 71,190. The company's staff attrition rate was 10.6 percent.
TCS' strong showing reflects an overall buoyancy in the Indian outsourcing industry. India's exports of software and services are expected to grow by 27 percent to 30 percent in the year ending March 31, to post revenue between $29 billion to $31 billion, India's National Association of Software and Service Companies said in June.
Revenues, Profits Soar At India's Top Outsourcer, Tata
Tata Consultancy Services Ltd., India's foremost software developer, reported Thursday that its third-quarter profit rose 54 percent, to $162 million.
Jan. 13, 2005
Tata Consultancy Services Ltd. reported Thursday that its third-quarter profit rose 54 percent, to $162 million (7.09 rupees), on revenues that rose 38 percent, to 25.8 billion rupees. Tata is India's largest software developer and that country's largest offshore outsourcer providing services to foreign customers.
General Electric, Tata's biggest customer, is expected to provide "marginal" growth in coming months, Tata said. India's second largest offshore outsourcing firm--Infosys Technologies--also reported soaring revenues and profits yesterday, as Indian firms continue to upgrade their services to customers.
Tata reported that new orders came from 72 customers--15 of them represent sales of more than $1 million a year. Italian sports-car manufacturer Ferrari SpA placed new orders with Tata, which said it will perform "core engine-design services" for its strategic partner.
In a statement, Tata's chief executive officer and managing director, S. Ramadorai, said: "Excellent teamwork between TCS and its subsidiaries have resulted in a strong growth momentum across all geographies, domains, and offerings." The company has a total of 506 active customers, and the firm said it also obtained significant customer wins with major media and entertainment-industry studios.
The firm reported that it added 2733 employees, bringing its total headcount to 43,681. Tata gets most of its outsourcing revenue from work performed at customer locations, while remote locations, such as India, accounted for about 40 percent of revenue.
....The OECD convention is simply not being taken seriously enough by many companies. To turn this situation around Transparency International, a nongovernmental organization that fights corruption, is developing, together with companies including BP, Shell, Tata and General Electric, a set of business principles for countering bribery.
If Tata's so squeeky clean, one wonders what it's doing canoodling with the Toons....
Republicans need to investigate this.
