The case study 'Currency Hedging at HCL Tech' discusses the currency hedging undertaken by HCL Technologies Limited (HCL Tech). The company suffered huge foreign exchange losses, due to unexpected high volatility of USD/INR exchange rate. The foreign exchange losses not only had huge fluctuations on the reported profits of HCL Tech but also created a mismatch between the reported revenues and the foreign exchange losses/gains. To overcome such problems, HCL Tech came up with certain measures like cancellation of currency hedging contracts and adaption of cash flow hedge accounting in conformity with the US GAAP.
