Tata Consultancy Services to raise funds to hedge forex risk

The Times of India reports that Tata Consultancy Services is planning to raise funds reportedly of around $200 mn to manage risks on its foreign exchange exposure. TCS earns nearly all its income in foreign exchange and volatile exchange rates impact its margins. J P Morgan will be managing the transaction. Citigroup, ABN-AMRO, Standard Chartered and HSBC are in touch with TCS on the same. The exercise is part of TCS' treasury management as it includes significant forex component. The possibilities include of either going in for a forward contract or a mix of forward contract and options.
