Management Commentary:Commenting on the June quarter results, Debashis Chatterjee, CEO and MD said, “During the first quarter of FY24, LTIMindtree delivered 8.2% YoY revenue growth in Constant Currency. Our key verticals BFSI, Manufacturing & Resources and Hi-Tech, Media, and Entertainment which make up 75% of our revenues performed well. Our strategic programs are bearing fruit and is evident in the upward movement across our client buckets. The order inflow continued to increase and reached USD 1.41 billion in this quarter. Our operational rigor helped us achieve an EBIT of 16.7% and PAT of 13.2%.”
LTIMindtree (LTIM) reported mixed financial performance for the quarter. LTIM’s financial performance suffered as a result of the BFSI clients’ employment freeze, ramp-up delays and impact due to seasonal pass-through in Q4. Management is still unsure about the double-digit increase that was emphasized in the previous quarter, but they still want to accomplish it. Due to macroeconomic uncertainty, the customer has remained cautious about spending and has pushed back or postponed transaction start dates, which has an adverse effect on the company’s growth. However, LTIM can have industry-leading growth rates as a consequence of its deep subject expertise, strong collaborations with hyperscalers, and robust sales engine.
