India's TCS Sept-qtr profit misses estimates

BENGALURU, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Tata Consultancy Services Ltd (TCS) missed analysts’ estimates for September-quarter profit on Thursday, as India’s No. 1 IT services exporter faced sluggish demand in its key banking services segment amid signs of a global slowdown.

TCS, India’s second-most valuable company, said net profit rose to 80.42 billion Indian rupees ($1.13 billion) in the three months ended Sept. 30, from 79.01 billion rupees a year ago.

Analysts on average had expected a profit of 82.55 billion rupees.
