The transaction would be EPS neutral.
The closing of the transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions, Cyient said in a statement here on Thursday.
Cyient is a global provider of engineering, manufacturing, geospatial, network and operations management services to global industry leaders.
"We continue to embark on the journey towards realization of our design-build-maintain strategy. To enable greater focus on the strategy, we have been exiting the non-core businesses," said Krishna Bodanapu, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Cyient.
This is the second divestment after the sale of Infotech Enterprises IT Services (IEITS) in 2015 as a part of the strategy to exit the IT services business.
