Business environment and key developments

Global

Global GDP growth has been slowing in the face of reduced investment, and elevated inflation and interest rates, along with disruptions caused by the Russia-Ukraine conflict. There has been rapid monetary policy tightening around the world to contain inflation. In many countries, inflation has also been spurred by sharp currency depreciations relative to USD, as well as tight labor market conditions. As the global conditions make it more difficult to service debt, concerns about debt sustainability in many countries have also risen. In the United States, one of the most aggressive monetary policy tightening cycles in recent history is expected to slow growth sharply. The Euro area had to contend with severe energy supply disruptions and price hikes, in addition to inflation. Growth of emerging economies is anticipated to remain mostly unchanged in 2023 relative to 2022, as a pickup in China could offset the decline in other emerging economies. Concerns about financial vulnerabilities are in focus, including in financial institutions, housing markets, and low-income countries While headline inflation has started declining, it remains elevated and could persist longer.

However, a key factor in improving activity and sentiment in early 2023 was the decline in energy and food prices. The earlier-than-expected re-opening in China is also expected to have a positive impact on global activity, reducing supply chain pressures, and giving a boost to international tourism. The decline in energy prices partly reflects the impact of a warm winter in Europe, which helped preserve gas storage levels and reduce energy consumption in many countries. Goods inflation has started declining in most countries, due to the gradual return of normal demand for goods in the post-pandemic scenario and the easing of global supply chain bottlenecks.

Global growth is projected to slow from 3.4% in 2022 to 2.9% in 2023. The low growth forecast for 2023 reflects the rise in central bank rates to fight inflation especially in advanced economies, along with the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

The United States is expected to experience a decline in growth from 2.0% in 2022 to 1.4% in 2023 and 1.0% in 2024, with growth rebounding in the second half of 2024. There is a 0.4% upward revision for annual growth in 2023, but a 0.2% downward revision of growth in 2024 due to the steeper trajectory of Federal Reserve rate hikes. Consumer spending rose in January 2023, along with real disposable income and manufacturing activity. However, core inflation, housing inflation, and food inflation remained high

European economic growth was more robust than anticipated, partly due to government support for households and businesses affected by the energy crisis and reopening of the economies.

European gas benchmark price fell below its pre-war level, due to a milder-than-expected winter, a sharp fall in gas consumption, and the continued diversification of supply sources. Labor markets remained tight, with unemployment in the EU staying at its all-time low of 6.1% in December 2022.

The United Kingdom in 2023 is projected to see negative growth, with the economy performing worse than other advanced economies, ncluding Russia. This would be largely due to tightened fiscal and monetary policies, financial conditions, as well as rising mortgage costs, increased taxes and persistent worker shortages.

Growth projections for emerging market and developing economies show a modest increase from 3.9% in 2022 to 4.0% in 2023, and to 4.2% in 2024. Half of the emerging market and developing economies are expected to see lower growth in 2023 compared to 2022.

Emerging and developing Asias growth is expected to rise in 2023 and 2024, while growth in emerging and developing Europe is likely to have bottomed out in 2022. Latin America and the Caribbeans growth is projected to decline in 2023, and the Middle East and Central Asias growth is projected to decline mainly due to a slowdown in Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, sub-Saharan Africas growth is projected to remain moderate at 3.8% in 2023, with Nigerias growth rising due to measures to address insecurity issues in the oil sector.

Outlook

Global growth is expected to slow to 2.9% in 2023, before rising to 3.1% in 2024, with inflation falling from 8.8% in 2022 to 6.6% in 2023 and 4.3% in 2024. The global economy is witnessing continued turbulence with fresh headwinds from the banking sector turmoil in some advanced economies. The sudden announcement of an output cut by OPEC+ in April 2023 and the resultant jump in crude oil prices is yet another evidence of volatility. Uncertainty about the course of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, coupled with its broader consequences, is also a key concern. As geopolitical tensions remain elevated, businesses are increasingly looking to make their supply chains more resilient by moving production home or to stable countries. The overall outlook thus remains dynamic and fast evolving.

India

The First Advance Estimates (FAE) released by the National Statistical Office (NSO) place Indias real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth at 7.0% for FY23. These optimistic growth forecast stems, in part, from the resilience of the Indian economy seen in the rebound of private consumption seamlessly replacing the export stimuli as the leading driver of growth. The uptick in private consumption also provided a boost to production activity, resulting in an increase in capacity utilization across sectors. The rebound in contact-intensive sectors and discretionary spending is expected to support urban consumption.

The Union Budget for FY24 sought to complement macroeconomic growth with a focus on all-inclusive welfare, promoting digital economy and fintech, technology-enabled development, energy transition and climate action, and kickstarting a virtuous private investment cycle, crowded in by public capital investment.

Fundamentals and medium-to-long-term prospects remain stable for Indian equities, but, in the near term, they face possible headwinds from oil prices, inflation, interest rates, and fund flows. The ongoing domestic demand revival story remains a key pillar of strength. The expectation of a record rabi harvest bodes well for the easing of food price pressures, while there are early indications of softening wheat prices, helped by supply-side interventions from the government.

The impact of recent unseasonal rains in some parts of the country, however, needs to be monitored.

Outlook

Strong credit growth, resilient financial markets, and the governments continued capital spending and infrastructure push have created a conducive environment for investment. Indias recovery from the pandemic was relatively quick, and future growth is likely to be supported by solid domestic demand and a pickup in capital investment.

Industry review

For the IT industry, FY23 was a year of continued revenue growth, with a focus on strengthening industry fundamentals and building on trust and competencies. The volatile global economic environment and impending recession continue to support the demand for technology adoption and digital acceleration. Technology, thus, remains a strategic imperative-a critical component of business innovation and transformation, as well as a source of improving operational and cost efficiencies.

Indias technology industry has exhibited continued revenue growth and is estimated to have grown by double digits in constant currency terms in FY23. Indias technology industry revenue is estimated to have crossed USD 245 Billion (8.4% year on year growth), an addition of USD 19 Billion over FY22.

According to NASSCOM, the sector is on track to hit USD 500 Billion in revenue by 2030. The share of digital tech in overall technology services revenue has been on the rise-from 26-28% in FY20 to 32-34% in FY23. The industry continues to be a net hirer, adding 2.9 Lakh new jobs and taking the total employee base to approximately 5.4 Million (5.7% year on year growth), strengthening Indias position as the Digital Talent Nation for the world. Further, the sector remains on the top globally in terms of Al skills penetration with a 36% digitally skilled workforce, the second largest in terms of AI/ML BDA talent pool, and the third largest in terms of installed supply of Cloud professionals.

Strategy

LTIMindtree was formed in November 2022 following the merger of two very successful companies, L&T Infotech and Mindtree, both part of the Larsen & Toubro Group. It is a new kind of technology consulting firm helping businesses transform - from core to experience - to thrive in the marketplace of the future. With a unique blend of engineering DNAand experience DNA, LTIMindtree helps businesses get to the future, faster

The strategic objectives of the merger includes:

• Becoming an at-scaie service provider, well-placed to capture market share in todays dynamic business environment LTIMindtree is now the fifth-largest Indian IT services provider by market capitalization and the sixth largest by revenue

• Ability to engage even more meaningfully with the partner base, to create fit-for-purpose solutions for clients

• Enhance mindshare with the analyst and advisor base

• Leverage a highly complementary industry/client base.

The combined entity services nearly a fifth of the Fortune 500 clients (95 of 500), and there is significant opportunity to cross-seli and up-sell across the client base

• Expanded set of capabilities that help us serve client needs end-to-end, from core to edge to experience

• Increased ability to shape and win large, transformational deals by virtue of our scale and end-to-end offerings

• Access to a larger and more diverse talent base, and the ability to engage our talent more meaningfully

• Robust balance sheet to enable targeted investments into growth and capability building.

The intent to merge was announced in May 2022 and the effective date for the Company to operate as a merged entity was November 14, 2022. A merger of this scale comes with its share of challenges, requiring the management of sentiments and processes across the stakeholder ecosystem and business landscape. The process has been facilitated by the existing familiarity and collaboration between the two companies, as they had previously engaged in joint pursuits of various deals even before the merger took place. This, along with the oversight of the same parent Group, enabled us to complete the merger in record time.

Although LTIMindtree began operations only in the middle of Q3 FY23, we are encouraged by early indications that the merger rationale is playing out as expected. Looking ahead, our focus continues to be to deliver best-in-class services to our clients leveraging our deep industry domain and technology expertise, while exploiting the synergies provided by the merger. Our focus has also been on making available to our leadership and employees the vast opportunities that exist as part of a fast-growing organization

As we go through FY24, we aim to simplify, unify, and provide clarity to our clients, our employees, and our stakeholders (partners, analysts, investors, etc.) to help them to get to the future, faster, together.

We propose to do this through our LTIMOne framework comprising the following pillars:

One culture

• A common purpose and vision

• Our work ethos: Be driven by purpose; Act with compassion;

Be future-ready; Deliver impact.

One Go-to-Market (GTM) strategy

To help our clients continuously transform, both inside-out and outside-in, via:

• Business model transformation

• Experience transformation

• Operations transformation

• Technology ecosystem transformation.

One unified capability

To build unified capabilities by amplifying our strengths, enabling synergies, and developing a compelling integrated proposition to our clients. We will accomplish this by

• Pioneering a bold, new organization design to create a cohesive capability flywheel

• Force multiplying through collaboration with leading partners

• Strengthening our large practices while nurturing new growth engines, and

• Leveraging our best-in-class IP to deliver non-linear outcomes.

One profitable growth model

While we continue to focus on capabilities and growth, we will also ensure we drive sustainable value creation through four levers:

• Consistent profitable growth

• Cost synergies, along with disciplined execution

• Capital allocation framework to support rapid growth

• Creating shared value for our stakeholders and the communities we operate in.

As cloud, data, and digital become critical for every organization, our vision is to enable businesses to stay competitive in their technology transformation journeys and get them to future, faster.

We possess the resources, scale, and confidence of a leader along with the energy, hunger, and ambition of a challenger. To this end, we are pleased with the conversations we are having with clients across markets and, in several instances, we are able to bid for deals that the erstwhile organizations individually would not have been able to, and our increased scale has also started paving the way for our elevation to a Tier-1 partner with existing clients.

The services market continues to be volatile, with the unfolding geopolitical and macroeconomic scenario inducing caution in technology spending amongst businesses. However, we strongly believe that the structural story of the IT industry is intact for the long-term and, specifically, the opportunities ahead of LTIMindtree are immense, which we aim to capitalize on.

Cost Control and Adoption of Newer Process and Technologies

Cost control is an important business priority for us. We consistently explore ways to optimize our overall cost. During the year, we have implemented various programs towards bending the cost curve which include:

• Robust resource planning to avoid any cost leakage

• Higher intake of freshers and right-shoring to optimize cost per resource

• Optimization of subcontractor cost

• Cutting down on discretionary spends.
