Commenting on the Q1 results, Krishna Bodanapu, Managing Director and CEO, Cyient, said, “Our performance this quarter has been strong with our revenue growing at over 18% YoY. Six large deals with a TCP of over US$ 424 million are a key indicator of our customers’ trust in our digital and innovation capabilities. Our robust pipeline from high-performing sectors like Communications, Mining, Healthcare Technology, and Automotive, strategic investments, and acquisitions show that our growth pillars continue to reap benefits for the business.“
During the quarter, Cyient enhanced its plant engineering, 5G, and consulting capabilities and announced the acquisition of Citec, Celfinet, and Grit Consulting. The Citec acquisition is the largest outbound acquisition by an Indian engineering services company and Cyient’s largest acquisition to date. The acquisition supports Cyient in enhancing its position as a plant and product engineering leader, strengthening its presence in Europe. In addition, Celfinet’s acquisition strengthens Cyient’s Wireless Engineering practice to support Communication Service Providers (CSPs) and Enterprises in deploying their pervasive connectivity networks at scale. The acquisition of Grit Consulting empowers Cyient to accelerate its consulting capabilities, deepening its mining industry footprint by leveraging customer, geographic, and talent synergies. The Celfinet and Grit Consulting acquisitions have been closed.
