Mindtree share price target by brokerages
Several brokerages have revised the target for Mindtree. While Morgan Stanely has revised its target for the scrip to Rs 3400 from Rs 3150, JP Morgan has increased the target to Rs 3000.
Debashis Chatterjee, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Mindtree said that the robust performance in the second quarter of FY23 marked a solid first half of the year, for the company.
"We not only delivered strong revenues of USD 422.1 million, up 7.2 per cent sequentially in constant currency, but also maintained our EBITDA margin at a healthy 21 per cent despite wage hikes across the board, making it our seventh consecutive quarter of more than 5 per cent revenue growth in constant currency, and eighth consecutive quarter of more than 20 per cent EBITDA margin," Chatterjee said.
EBITDA refers to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation.
The total contract value or TCV in the fiscal's first half crossed USD 1 billion for the first time.
The 52-week high and low of the Mindtree share at NSE are Rs 5,060 and Rs 2,649 respectively. So far this year, the scrip has given a negative return of 26.10 per cent.
