Net profit grew sequentially to 21.3% in to $16.7 million and 28.6% in rupee terms to Rs89 crore. In rupee terms, revenue grew 7% to Rs563 crore on the back of a weakening of the local currency.

For the 2013 financial year, the management expects Mindtree as a whole to grow in line with Nasscom’s industry projections of 11-14 %, with the IT services segment again growing significantly ahead of the company.
The product engineering segment witnessed a couple of ramp downs during the quarter, thus impacting growth, but new accounts signed should offset that, he said.
