Tata Consultancy Services Ltd, India’s biggest software services exporter, on Friday said it expected third-quarter revenue to be “in line with seasonal trends” as holidays and furloughs impact some of its key businesses.
The company sees demand in North America to be in line with its expectations for the quarter ending December 31, adjusted for seasonal weakness, TCS said in a filing with the stock exchange after market hours. The third quarter is seasonally weak for TCS due to holidays in the United States and Europe, key markets where it fights for contracts with competitors in the $100 billion-plus Indian outsourcing sector.
Shares in TCS, India’s biggest company by market valuation, closed down 1.66 percent in a market that fell 0.91 per cent. They had fallen 2 per cent earlier in the day on speculation the firm would announce a restructuring that would impact earnings outlook.
