2017: HCL, TCS, Wipro rise in engg ranking

Shilpa Phadnis, HCL, TCS, Wipro up in engg services ranking, August 23, 2018: The Times of India

Segment Fastest Growing In Outsourcing Biz, Expanded 13% In 2017, Says Nasscom

HCL, TCS and Wipro have all risen one rank up in HFS Research’s latest list of the world’s top engineering service providers. European players continue to dominate this space. The ranking has 27 European firms and 9 Indian firms in the top 50. French companies Altran and Alten led the ranking, the two registering revenues of $2.6 billion and $2.2 billion respectively.

Nine players have over $1 billion in revenue from engineering services — including Altran, Alten, AVL, HCL, Akka, TCS, Wipro, Accenture, and Bertrandt. HCL Tech is now in the 4th spot with a revenue of $1.68 billion from engineering services. TCS with $1.25 billion is in the 6th spot, while Wipro with $1.2 billion in the 7th spot.

Engineering services has been a bright spot in the overall outsourcing business in recent years. IT industry body Nasscom said that in 2017, Indian engineering services exports grew by 13%, much higher than the growth in IT services exports, at 6%, and BPM exports, at 8%. Cognizant, Infosys, and Tech Mahindra have over $700 million in revenues coming from this space.

Aricent (acquired by Altran last year), L&T Tech, Cyient, Quest Global Persistent Systems, Tata Elxsi, Mindtree, Happiest Minds, and Sasken are other prominent Indiabased players in engineering services.

Product engineering refers to the process of designing and developing a device, assembly, or system. A lot of such engineering is now outsourced to specialised players. HFS Research SVP and managing director Pareekh Jain said there is a reason to the European dominance in outsourced product-engineering services. “Product-engineering is a core business activity for enterprises which many were unwilling to outsource in the early days of outsourcing, unlike transactional IT Services and BPO services which are not core activities and can be better managed by experts. Product manufacturers’ ‘secret sauce’ that has kept them competitive has traditionally been their internal design and make capability,” he said.

Jain said the outsourcing trend started with Airbus, which wanted to accelerate its product development to compete with Boeing and started leveraging local outsourcing partners to access their expertise. This led to the scaling up of the French engineering outsourcing industry. Similarly, the German automotive firms started outsourcing to local outsourcing partners to accelerate product development to compete with US and Japanese automotive companies.

Market capitalisation

2018: TCS 1st Indian co. to cross ₹7L-cr

May 26, 2018: The Times of India

The five companies with the highest market capitalisation in May 2018
From: May 26, 2018: The Times of India

Software services major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) became the first Indian company to achieve a market valuation of Rs 7 lakh crore in intraday trades. But it closed the session a tad off that mark at Rs 6.9 lakh crore.

Earlier, its market cap touched a high of Rs 7.03 lakh crore. Some time ago this month, TCS had become the first Indian company to reach the $100-billion market cap mark. So far, the flagship from the Tata Group remains the only Indian company to achieve these two milestones.

In recent weeks, with the Indian rupee showing weakness against other major currencies, the stock prices of software exporters have been on an upswing. This is because the depreciation of the rupee directly translates into higher revenues for exporters who bill most of their foreign clients in dollars.

So far this year, TCS’ stock price has gained about 33% compared to a 20% rise in the BSE’s IT index and a 2.6% gain in the sensex. The IT major has been mainly boosted by strong results and helped by the weakness of the Indian currency.

In terms of market cap, TCS is followed by Reliance Industries with Rs 5.8 lakh crore, HDFC Bank with Rs 5.2 lakh crore, HUL with Rs 3.4 lakh crore and ITC with Rs 3.3 lakh crore.

2018, Aug: RIL 1st Indian co. to cross ₹8L-cr

August 24, 2018: The Times of India

Top cos by m-cap (in Rs L cr), as in 2018, August
From: August 24, 2018: The Times of India

Reliance Industries (RIL) became the first Indian company to cross the Rs 8-lakh-crore market capitalisation mark, while its stock hit a fresh 52-week high. The stock closed nearly 2% higher at Rs 1,270 on the BSE. During the session, the scrip touched a 52-week high of Rs 1,274. The surge in the counter has pegged the company’s market valuation at Rs 8,04,691 crore at the end of the day’s session.

The oil-to-telecom conglomerate was among the top gainers on the BSE sensex, which closed at a fresh lifetime high of 38,337 on Thursday — up 51 points or 0.1%. The 30-share index scaled an alltime intra-day high of 38,488 in early trades. However, it succumbed to profit-booking and slipped to 38,227, before finally ending at 38,337.

The sensex bettered its previous record closing of 38,286 reached on August 21. The gauge has gained 622 points in the previous three sessions (the stock markets were shut on Wednesday on account of Bakri Eid). The broader NSE Nifty also rose 12 points, or 0.1%, to finish at 11,583 — surpassing its previous record closing of 11,571 hit on August 21.
