Apart of the Tata group, India’s largest multinational business group, TCS boasts of more than 448,000 of the world’s best-trained consultants in 46 countries. The company generated consolidated revenues of $22 billion in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020.

In FY 2020, TCS delivered revenues of Rs 156,949 crore, growing at 7.2 per cent compared to the previous year in reported terms, and at 7.1 per cent in constant currency terms. The company’s operating margin continued to be the best in class, at 24.6 per cent. In FY20, TCS clocked a net profit of Rs 32,340 crore, a net margin of 20.6 per cent. “Our cash conversion continues to be very strong, with a cash conversion ratio of 100.1 per cent and free cash flow of Rs 29,281 crore,” said Rajesh Gopinathan, CEO & MD, TCS.

The TCS Board recommended a final dividend of Rs 6 for the year, bringing the total dividend payout for the year to Rs 73 per share or Rs 31,895 crore overall, which accounted for 108.9 per cent of the free cash flow of the company

“We had a very productive year, engaging with customers in their innovation, growth and transformation initiatives, expanding and deepening our relationships, deploying very impactful solutions, and winning some of our largest deals till date. However, it is our response to the events of the last ten days of the fiscal year that will be our most defining accomplishment of FY 2020,” said Gopinathan addressing the shareholders in its latest annual report.

Today, TCS has 49 customers who spend more than $100 million a year because the trust levels are so high. “In the case of one UK insurance customer, TCS and the transformational work we are doing for them have figured in the CEO’s letter to their shareholders every year for the last three years,” said Gopinathan.

In FY20 TCS had rolled out the Secure Borderless Workspaces model in response to the lockdowns, enabling over 90 per cent of the workforce to securely work from home. The model leveraged all prior investments, and incorporated best practices around network management, an internal SOC, a standard service delivery environment, digitised delivery governance processes, and use of cloud-based collaboration technologies.
