Reasons for growth


  • Maintaining a manageable operating scale

After merging with Mindtree, LTIM jumped to number six among India’s IT businesses. With a presence across end-user sectors, countries, and customers, the merged business has a larger size, varied technical skills, and a wide range of products. 

As a result of its efficient operations and strong market position in important end-user sectors, the business is doing well. Of its total income, 37% came from BFSI, 24% from IT, media, and entertainment, and 18% from manufacturing and resources,  to mention a few.

  • Strategic relevance to L&T:

Over the last several years, the L&T group’s IT services business has grown in importance. Having previously prioritised infrastructure and capital-intensive divisions, the company is now shifting its attention to the services industry, which encompasses financial and information technology services.

In addition to the infrastructure business’s less-than-expected performance, the asset-light services business’s excellent growth potential and high ROCE have contributed to the strategy modification. 

Tech Mahindra Ltd

  • A diverse set of clientele and strong business vertical diversity 

Technology, Media and Entertainment (CME), Production, Finance, Financial Services, and Insurance (BFSI), and many more sectors are all well-served by Tech Mahindra’s extensive product and service offerings. A diverse customer base has been and will continue to be, an advantage to the company.

  • Dedicated promoters and a qualified management team 

In its more than 30 years of operation, Tech Mahindra has expanded, attracting customers from a wide range of industries and regions. Because the promoter firms get substantial financial incentives in the form of dividends, the company’s strategic relevance to the Mahindra group is rather significant.
