TCS’s CEO and Managing Director Rajesh Gopinathan said, “TCS’s investments over the last decade in building newer capabilities, research, and innovation position us well for the multi-year technology services opportunity ahead.”
“As we continue to dominate in our traditional areas of strength, we are also making good progress in the growth and transformation opportunity. Our focus going into FY22 will be to engage with clients in their growth agenda, propelled by innovation and leverage of collective knowledge,” he added.
TCS Chief Financial Officer V Ramakrishnan said, “I am very pleased with our performance in Q4. This caps three quarters of consistently robust performance during a pandemic year. It gives us a strong exit from FY 21. Our Q4 margins are a validation of our strong belief that it is possible to win mega-deals, post industry-leading growth, continue to invest in our people and newer capabilities, and still, deliver industry-leading profitability.”
