PAT of Rs. 3,982 crore (above our estimate of Rs. 3,098 crore) increased 26.7% QoQ mainly led by improvement in operating margin and lower tax expenses. The company had a reversal of tax in the quarter which led to lower tax rate.

HCL Tech has revised its revenues growth guidance to 2-3% QoQ in Q4FY21E from earlier 1.5-2.5%QoQ to factor in the acquisition of DWS. However, the company has revised its margin guidance upwards from 20%-21% to 21%-21.5%

The company has reported healthy revenue growth and margins. The company's upward revision of margin guidance also bodes well. We would be revisiting our estimates and target price post the conference call.
