“Our third quarter has by far been the best performing in recent years backed by broad-based revenue growth of 5 per cent across our verticals and service lines, robust margin expansion of 350 bps (basis points), and a healthy order book of USD 312 million,” Mindtree CEO and Managing Director Debashis Chatterjee said.
He added that the company is witnessing strong business momentum across all verticals with a significant demand for cloud, data and analytics capabilities.
“We continue to capitalise on the evolving market dynamics with solutions that help enterprises navigate the new normal and grow their businesses.
“Thanks to the strategic focus and hard work of our Mindtree Minds, we are now well-positioned to continue delivering profitable growth,” he said.
