“We are in early days of a sustained phase of high growth,” R Srikrishna, Hexaware Technologies CEO and Executive Director told BusinessLine.

He added that the demand environment is strong, however the macroeconomic dynamics are varied and tech spending across industries will vary. “While the first round of fiscal stimulus helped businesses, another infusion will help businesses,” he said.

In the quarter, Hexaware also expanded its margins by 62 basis points sequentially. Hexaware added 15 clients in the quarter, almost half of which were in the $5-10 million bucket.

“With revenue growth and margin expansion in the quarter, Hexaware has once again delivered robust results. This continues to demonstrate the successful execution of our growth strategy and the increasing relevance of our offerings to our clients,” Hexaware Technologies Chairman Atul Nishar said.

However, Hexaware expects a recovery cycle for some of the troubled verticals that require footfall, like travel and transportation, to take in excess of a year. Travel and transportation contributed 7.9 per cent of its revenues.
