"This quarter we focused on setting up the business back on a growth path. We continued our rigor on efficiency improvement and building pipeline for the business. We won key projects which sets us up for a better H2. We are focused on building a strong pipeline with large opportunities and rigor on account mining across key clients. This quarter we also restructured the organization to realign ourselves to the market opportunities and focus on growth in key industries. The new structure will enable us to function in a more agile and efficient manner."
"Our outlook for H2 is positive and we expect growth based on the outlook and pipeline across most sectors. We will see a decline in the aerospace business due to seasonality challenges and lower number of workdays. For the year we expect a double digit decline in revenue and margins will be similar to FY20 margins," he signed off.
