HCLT delivered strong 3.5% QoQ CC revenue growth, beating our expectations, led by robust 8.3% growth in the products and platform business. EBITM expanded by 130bps sequentially to 22.9%, driven by revenue acceleration and offshore shift. HCLT signed 13 new transformational deals (>USD25mn TCV) in Q3 across verticals, including Life Sciences & Healthcare, Technology and Financial Services. Deal bookings grew 13% YoY. The deal pipeline remains robust at closer to an all-time high. The company expects revenue growth of 2-3% QoQ CC in Q4 (organic growth 1-2%).
