HCL Technologies: Weak start to the fiscal for the company


HCLT lost its growth forecast for Q1FY22 (behind the failure for Q4FY21): Revenue increased 0.7% in the quarter in normal financial times vs 4.8% for Infosys and 2.4% for and TCS.

However, despite the failure, the administration showed strong confidence in its vision. Commercial earnings in the last two quarters were positive (c$4.7 billion), in our opinion, and the pipeline remains strong; the current pipeline is the highest, according to mgmt.

As a result, management expects positive growth for the foreseeable future and has made a positive note on the growth prospects for FY23.

Additional employees are a reflection of the company’s reliable growth: in the last six months, the revenue has increased 4%, while employees increased 11%. The general guideline for double-digit revenue growth for FY22 with 19-21% Ebit margin has been left intact, meaning a positive CQGR of 2.8% from Q2FY22 to Q4FY22.

Surprisingly, ER&D saw a strong increase in the first quarter of fiscal 22, and the company expects to continue this strong recovery. The first quarter of fiscal year 22 was affected by the slow consolidation of businesses and the emergence of specialized professionals.

Highlighted Q1FY22: HCLT’s 0.7% growth rate was pulled down by a 1% quarter-on-quarter decline in cc terms by its weak business infrastructure and product periods (annual growth was broadly in line with guidance bottom of the company in the middle blank number). ER&D increased 4.3% quarter-on-quarter while IT and business generated revenue.

Gains were weak in Europe (down 3.9% q-o-q, cc); However, mgmt remains confident of returning to growth and the company has increased investment in clients in the region. America lives 2.6%.

In terms of high quality, the growth was focused on Life Science & Healthcare (+5.4% QoQ in terms of cc) and BFSI (+2.9%), while Manufacturing (+2.2%), Retail (flat QoQ), and Technology and service dissatisfaction. Mgmt reported a 20-30 bps airline drop in cases of COVID-19 communication issues and a 90 bps edge drop.

Another 35 bps impact was requested on Ebit spending due to payment and retention costs and 30 bps could be financed by the new business. Significance increased by c200bps by 11.8% (last 12 months). Like partners, the peak was mentioned on the talent supply side and new bangs began to emerge.
