HCL Q2 Results Review:

HCL has reported a moderate set of numbers for the quarter ended September. The topline failed to beat street estimates while the bottomline was just above estimates. The margins also further narrowed to 19%. However, the company saw a healthy growth in its new deal wins which are bigger than even its peer Infosys. The company has delivered a healthy performance across its services portfolio led by Digital Business, Engineering and Cloud Services.

The company believes that the upward demand trajectory will continue as enterprises will continue to invest in modernisation, Cloud journey, and digital transformation for the next few quarters. The company will further accelerate its actions and investments in emerging technologies, people and ESG. The company has a robust pipeline of projects, and continued strong employee ramp-up gives the company the required growth momentum. Shares of HCL Tech ended 1.5% lower at Rs. 1,246 on the NSE.
