Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) shares were in focus today as the IT major extended its strategic agreement with Nest, the United Kingdom's largest workplace pension system. Since 2011, the country's largest software exporter has collaborated closely with Nest, and the cooperation has now been expanded to provide superior member experiences through the use of its digitally enabled, omnichannel platform powered by TCS BaNCS.

"The contract was signed for 840 million pounds with a 10-year initial term." The contract's overall maximum anticipated value, if extended for the entire 18-year term, will be 1.5 billion pounds, TCS stated in a post-market hour exchange filing on Wednesday.

TCS shares began higher on the BSE at 3,240.05, compared to the previous closing price of 3,227.20. The IT heavyweight jumped as much as 1% in early trade to 3,267, while the market capitalisation increased to 11.91 lakh crore. On February 16, 2023, the country's most valuable company reached a 52-week high of 3,575 and a 52-week low of 2,926 on September 26, 2022.

TCS stated in the exchange filing that it has extended long-standing cooperation with Nest to focus on digitally changing the scheme's administration services, offering superior member experiences, and promoting the scheme's purpose of delivering better retirement outcomes for people across the United Kingdom.
