Tech Mahindra Ltd Chairman Speech

Crafting new pathways

Dear Shareholders

It's a new day. A new world. A new normal. The world has changed in the last six months and what we have witnessed, weathered and traversed in the last six months has transformed our perspective, and how!

As I write this letter, we have only started to recover from the immediate impact of COVID-19. In a short time, the pandemic has had a far-reaching impact globally, impacting the economy, our society and human life in all aspects. And yet, amidst all of this, we have seen some magnificent examples of human resilience, solidarity and innovation.

When the pandemic broke out, we had two key priorities - the safety and wellbeing of our people and business continuity of our customers. We facilitated work-from-home for over 90% of our associates while safeguarding those attending office. We surpassed customer expectations with our continuous connect, seamless delivery and data security measures.

We adopted a new #DistantButConnected logo to convey our solidarity in the global war against COVID-19, as well as our commitment to #WellnessFirst. Leadership teams and support functions worked round the clock to ensure associates remained safe, connected, informed and motivated. I thank every TechMighty for staying together as one family always, but especially during this crisis.

The year that was

In retrospect, our focus on becoming an increasingly agile, resilient and future-ready company has helped us overcome changing business challenges in the globally disruptive environment. We were able to leverage our digital prowess to create sustainable solutions, catalyse societal growth and contribute positively to climate action.

Looking at some of the key performance highlights for the year, Communications Vertical has grown by 6.8% in constant currency terms, driven by modernisation spend and pre-5G work. We announced a strategic collaboration with AT&T, to accelerate its network application, shared systems modernisation and movement to cloud. The Enterprise business, although impacted by weaker macro trends in select verticals, grew by 4.7% constant currency terms. We signed the largest Enterprise deal in history in Insurance and Annuities space. We announced net new deal wins of $3.71 Billion, significantly higher than $1.67 Billion in FY19. Our digital offerings were strengthened with the acquisition of Born Group, Mad*Pow, Zen3 and Cerium. Our focus on cash collections helped us generate $ 523 Million of free cashflow, while we returned capital to our shareholders through the completion of our maiden buyback. We also announced a higher dividend ofRs. 15 for FY20. Overall, it was a satisfactory year, with revenues at $ 5,181.9 Million and profit after tax at $ 566.8 Million.

Our ESG focus: co-creating a better world

We focused on environment, social and governance in all aspects of our work and tried to innovatively solve problems by connecting ESG with business results.

We are at par with global practices in technology disruption, climate change and water scarcity, among others. We reviewed our operating strategy and business model to align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and re-emerged as a sustainability leader, becoming one among three Indian companies to feature in the DJSI (Dow Jones Sustainability Indices) World Index and one of the 12 Indian companies who are part of the Emerging Markets category.

I am happy with the initiatives we took to reduce our ecological impact. We adopted sustainable, environment-friendly practices in our daily lives through our 3-4-3 initiative (Every associate to plant 3 trees a month, take 4 carpool rides and volunteer 3 hours a month). Our focus on encouraging individual social contribution included institutionalising an award (ISR award) that allowed associates to take time off work to donate to social causes.

We earned the Great Place To Work (GPTW) certification this year: a recognition of our focus on diversity, inclusion and sustainability even as we continued to create great experiences for our associates.

Technology for good

The after COVID-19 world will see human experiences becoming more contactless, yet even more connected. This is exactly where our competitive advantage will come to the fore: new age tech will determine who survives and thrives, as much as tech for good (technology that changes people's everyday lives for the better) will distinguish who makes a difference.

Our Run-Change-Grow strategy is even more relevant in the current environment as we help customers ‘run' their existing businesses in difficult times, enable them to ‘change' by making their portfolio offerings post-covid ready and ‘grow' their businesses by constructing new revenue streams.

As part of our TechMNxt charter, we are leveraging next-gen technology such as remote computing, cloud transformation, 5G, AI, blockchain and cybersecurity to deliver enhanced experiences for our customers globally.

At Makers Lab, we are working in collaboration with customers to deliver innovative solutions. Some of them like the in-house developed chatbot, Entellio, have helped government institutions and customers stay safe during the crisis.

For our people

Our talented workforce is our most valuable asset and reflects our strength, resilience and future readiness. The focus last year was on onboarding the right talent, building capability, nurturing an innovation-centric work environment and creating an inclusive, empowering and balanced work environment.

Continuing on Innovation journey, Tech Mahindra launched K2, its first HR Humanoid, which took over our HR transactions and created an enhanced employee experience. We also implemented an AI- based facial recognition system to register attendance and monitor the emotional quotient of our employees.

Rising for good

We are building a sustainable future where everyone can access the benefits and opportunities created by technology. As part of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes, Tech Mahindra Foundation is working to benefit the overall socioeconomic development in communities that we operate in.

Our teams were swift in coming forward during the COVID-19 crisis and our associates across locations volunteered in food drives and donated leaves, salaries, award money and cash.

The Tech Mahindra Foundation reached out to the most vulnerable of population - healthcare workers, security personnel, migrant workers and households from the bottom-most of the pyramid to support them with foodgrains, PPEs and medicines.

Everything we do is inspired by a deep sense of purpose. Our values hold us in good stead and are helping us become more ethical, reliable and transparent than ever. I am proud of the way we prepare to deal with the current operating scenario and would like to thank our associates, customers and stakeholders for their perseverance and support. We will continue to innovate and drive success throughout our ecosystem, today, tomorrow and beyond.

HIRING & TRAINING

Hiring at the Company is "intentionally diverse" because of our belief in the saying "if you do not intentionally include, you unintentionally exclude." Last year, the Company launched the UK & US Undergrads program to add global talent to our sales force. By starting a Young Leaders Program to hire ex-entrepreneurs, the Company has gained potential leaders who use creative thinking "hacks" to help solve complex business issues, a skill often missing in traditionally trained Managers. The Company has also digitized the hiring processes by leveraging internal #NewAgeDelivery platform to match Demand Vs Resource Supply. Through proactive skilling programs for Associates approaching the end of their project assignment's along with bench fests, the Company reduced deployable bench to 4.9% from 6.3% last year which is one of the best in the industry.

Our special series called "Rise from within" brings to the Associates inspiring stories about accepting no limits and driving positive change within the organisation.

NURTURING A CULTURE OF APPRECIATION
