“Our customer-focused organisation and balanced business model helped us drive growth across all our major customer segments and operating regions in the first quarter,” TCS CEO N Chandrasekaran said. The board has proposed a dividend of Rs 3 a piece on shares with a face value of Re 1.
He said TCS “continues to partner with many customers to help them successfully execute their transformation agendas as well as negotiate a challenging business environment.”
“Though we continue to see a steady demand flow for our services, the uncertain global macroeconomic environment demands that we adopt an entrepreneurial approach and remain agile to capture growth opportunities as they emerge,” Chandrasekaran said.
During the June quarter, the software exporter added 3,576 employees, taking the total headcount to 2,02,190 as on June 30. The company during the quarter added 24 new clients.
