"Mindtree has delivered exceptional performance for both the fourth quarter and the full fiscal year as we cross the historic $1 billion milestone. Over the course of two decades our strategy of being expertise-led and backed by a unique culture continues to help us attract world class people and create customer successes," Mindtree CEO and managing director Rostow Ravanan said.

He added that the company is "well-poised to continue delivering industry leading returns for all our stakeholders, the best is yet to come".
