DOUBLE-DIGIT BUMP: India's top outsourcing company Tata Consultancy Services posted a 13 percent jump in net income during the most recent quarter as activity in Europe seemed to pick up in midst of debt crisis.

NEW BUSINESS: Tata added 52 new clients in the quarter, and CEO Natarajan Chandrasekaran predicted stronger growth in fiscal 2014, which began in April.
