New Delhi: The Indian stock market has not yet fully recovered from the crisis of Adani Group that another trouble has knocked at the door. The banking crisis that started from America has reached Europe. It is believed that it may deepen further. Meanwhile, analysts at JP Morgan (JPMorgan) say that among the US banks facing financial crisis, the highest exposure is of India’s two big IT companies TCS (TCS) and Infosys (Infosys). Regional banks in the US account for 2-3 per cent of their total revenue. TCS, Infosys and Mindtree may have an exposure of 10-20 basis points to the recently sunken Silicon Valley Bank. Tata Group company TCS has the highest exposure in this.
According to a Reuters report, JP Morgan said in a note that these three companies may have to make provisions for their exposure to Silicon Valley Bank. It added that the collapse of SVB and Signature Bank and liquidity concerns in the US and Europe could lead to banks reducing their tech budgets in the short term. The country’s IT industry is already facing challenges from the macroeconomic environment in Europe and the US. Demand has come down due to the pandemic. For this reason, companies are reducing the expenditure on technology. The banking crisis could make the situation worse. Due to this, the revenue of IT companies may be affected in the next few quarters.
