Shares of information technology (IT) firm Tech Mahindra slumped nearly 4% on February 2 as investors sold stocks after the company delivered lower than expected profits.

The company's net profit increased 2.2% sequentially to ₹1,369 crore in October to December as compared to expectation of ₹1,454 crore consensus estimate of analysts tracked by Bloomberg.

While revenue is in line with expectations, weaker than expected margins and slower hiring is a concern, says analysts reportedly at UBS investment banking firm. It also maintained a ‘sell’ rating on the stock with a target price of ₹1,260 per share.

Adding to it, more employees are leaving Tech Mahindra than TCS and Wipro in an industry that is struggling with a high attrition rate. However, Tech Mahindra is not the only firm struggling with high attrition, every other IT firm is getting more resignations than ever before. Infosys has the highest attrition rate in the industry.
