"We see traction in all the key industries...Cyient will continue to focus on growth in revenue and operating profit, cash generation and thus, maximising the value for our shareholders," Cyient Chief Financial Officer Ajay Aggarwal said. 

It added 24 customers during the quarter and has a strong business outlook, backed by pipeline and order intake growth year-on-year.
