Tata Consultancy Services Ltd Chairman Speech

Dear Stakeholder,

Adversity, they say, is the true test of character.

Your company achieved many admirable wins and milestones through the first 11 months of FY 2020. But it was in the final days of the year that the true nature of its purpose-driven worldview truly shone through. Your company prioritized the health and safety of its employees, kept customers' mission-critical systems running under very difficult circumstances and pitched in to help communities across the world battle the pandemic.

When we emerge out of this crisis, the world will be a very different place. We are witnessing many of those changes already. With cloud and the new class of collaboration tools, people are discovering that they are able to collaborate with each other just as well working from home, as they did in person in the pre-COVID era. Employers are discovering that the productivity is just as good, if not better, in this new way of working.

In many sectors, digital channels have gone from being secondary, nice-to-have options to become the primary channels, and in some instances, the only channels. Schools, colleges and even courts have shifted to an online-only mode. Farmers' cooperatives are taking online orders and directly delivering fresh produce to city-dwellers. This is the transformation that we had spoken of five years go, when we said that Default is Digital, but even I am still amazed by the scale and speed of the change.

By staying true to its purpose and its values, and helping its employees, customers and communities use the power of technology to realize their potential, your company is the embodiment of stakeholder capitalism in the true spirit of the Tata ethos. Over the last five decades, your company has shown itself to be very purpose-driven, resilient and adaptable, staying relevant to its customers through multiple economic and technology cycles, and doing good for all its stakeholders. This is the secret behind its longevity and sustainability.

The sharp shift in consumer preferences will force enterprises to significantly accelerate their digital transformation initiatives. They will also invest heavily in building resilience at every level, on the front-end as well as in back-office operations. Having pioneered Location Independent Agile™ and the Machine First™ Delivery Model, both of which are of immense value to organizations looking to build operational resilience and agility, your company is very well positioned to benefit from these trends.

Stepping back from the enterprise level and taking a more global view, I believe that the new world in which digital channels become mainstream, which I described in my book Bridgital Nation, will offer countries like India, a unique opportunity to implement large scale digital interventions that would provide its citizenry easier access to essential services, while creating millions of new jobs. Your company has been at the forefront in enabling several such high-impact initiatives. TCS' Financial Inclusion Network supports over 210 million no-frills accounts set up under the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana. The scheme has created jobs for over 100,000 banking correspondents who go out to remote villages with handheld devices to provide banking services to the unbanked.

There are several other examples: the Passport Seva project which completely reimagined the issuance of passports, the digital transformation of India Post, the platform that supports Ayushman Bharat – the world's largest, fully funded health insurance scheme covering 500 million of India's poorest, and so on. Each of these initiatives showcases the innovative use of technology to transform citizen services, enhance inclusivity and reduce inequity in society.

By staying true to its purpose and its values, and helping its employees, customers and communities use the power of technology to realize their potential, your company is the embodiment of stakeholder capitalism in the true spirit of the Tata ethos. Over the last five decades, your company has shown itself to be very purpose-driven, resilient and adaptable, staying relevant to its customers through multiple economic and technology cycles, and doing good for all its stakeholders. This is the secret behind its longevity and sustainability.

The next few months will be difficult, but your company is strong with deep relationships with customers and partners, enviable scale, a diversified business mix, a robust and resilient business model, and strong financials. It is well positioned to weather the storms ahead and take advantage of opportunities that come up during the downturn to acquire new capabilities and gain market share. In the post-pandemic world, technology will play an ever larger role in helping enterprises adapt to the new normal and differentiate themselves. Your company is well poised to take the lead in partnering customers to recover and rebound on to their growth and transformation journeys.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Tata Consultancy Services, I want to thank you for your continued trust, confidence, and support.

Warm regards,

N Chandrasekaran
Chairman

2. COVID-19

In the last month of FY 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic developed rapidly into a global crisis, forcing governments to enforce lock-downs of all economic activity. For the Company, the focus immediately shifted to ensuring the health and well-being of all employees, and on minimizing disruption to services for all our customers globally. From a highly centralized model consisting of work spaces set in large delivery campuses capable of accommodating thousands of employees, the switch to work from home for employees all over extending all the elements of the Company's Open Agile Delivery model concept into a next-generation Secure Borderless Workspaces™ (SBWS) model was carried out seamlessly. As of March 31, 2020, work from home was enabled to close to 90 percent of the employees to work remotely and securely. This response has reinforced customer confidence in TCS and many of them have expressed their appreciation and gratitude for keeping their businesses running under most challenging conditions. The SBWS model ensures high quality and delivery certainty that the customers expect while addressing the issues around cyber security, project management practices and systems. Going forward, this location independent SBWS model could be a game changer due to its many advantages.

Although there are uncertainties due to the pandemic and reversal of the positive momentum gained in the last quarter of FY2020, the strong balance sheet position, best-in-class profitability and inherent resilience of the business model position the Company well to navigate the challenges ahead and gain market share.

The final dividend on equity shares, if approved by the Members, would involve a cash outflow of Rs.2,251 crore. The total dividend on equity shares including dividend tax for FY 2020 would aggregate Rs.31,895 crore, resulting in a dividend payout of 95.9 percent of the unconsolidated profits of the Company.

For FY 2019, the Company paid a total dividend of Rs.30 per equity share. Further, the Company bought back 76,190,476 equity shares at a price of Rs.2,100 per equity share for an aggregate consideration of Rs.16,000 crore and also allotted 1,914,287,591 equity shares as fully paid-up bonus shares in the ratio of 1:1.

Total renewable energy units generated from rooftop solar projects and sourced through power purchase agreements is cumulatively 59.5 million units in FY19-20 which is 10.9 percent of the total electricity consumption.

The shift to low carbon operations by switching over to energy efficient Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology has resulted in saving of 11 million units of electricity across TCS India operations.

The continued focus on Green IT and data center power management, has helped to reduce the Power Utilization Efficiency (PUE) of the 23 data centers to 1.66 from 1.67 in the last year. 22 of the 23 Data Centers have achieved the target PUE of 1.65. Data center / server room consolidation, higher rack utilization, UPS rationalization have been the key levers.
