Tata Consultancy Services Ltd, India’s top software services exporter, reported a 4.2% rise in quarterly net profit on Tuesday but missed analysts’ estimates.

TCS said its consolidated net profit rose to 66.08 billion rupees ($1.02 billion) in the three months to March 31, from 63.40 billion rupees in the year-ago period.

Analysts had, on average, expected a consolidated profit of 66.62 billion rupees, according to Thomson Reuters data.

TCS, which was reporting its first quarterly earnings under new Chief Executive Rajesh Gopinathan, said revenue rose 4.2% year-on-year to 296.42 billion rupees.
