Message from the Management

Commenting on the results, Mr. Krishna Bodanapu, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, said "Q2 FY21 results are in line with our expectations. We recorded a revenue of $135 Mn which was higher by 1.3% QoQ and lower by 16.3% YoY in constant currency. Growth in Services business across Transportation, Communications and Portfolio BUs was offset by Aerospace & Defense BU decline. The DLM business grew by 13.3% QoQ. The EBIT margin is higher by 586bps QoQ. We generated Free Cash Flow of $27.3 Mn in Q2FY21. This quarter we focused on setting up the business back on a growth path. We continued our rigor on efficiency improvement and building pipeline for the business. We won key projects which sets us up for a better H2. We are focused on building a strong pipeline with large opportunities and rigor on account mining across key clients. This quarter we also restructured the organization to realign ourselves to the market opportunities and focus on growth in key industries. The new structure will enable us to function in a more agile and efficient manner. We also made significant investments in strengthening our business through strategic partnerships and M&A. We intend to acquire IG partners, an Australian consulting firm to expand our digital capabilities in the mining sector. The IG Partners transaction, the terms of which are confidential, remains conditional on regulatory approval and will result in Cyient taking full ownership of the company. Our outlook for H2 is positive and we expect growth based on the outlook and pipeline across most sectors. We will see a decline in the aerospace business due to seasonality challenges and lower number of workdays. For the year we expect a double-digit decline in revenue and margins will be similar to FY 20 margins."

Commenting on the results, Mr. Ajay Aggarwal, President & CFO, said, "I am pleased to share that during Q2 FY21, we delivered one of our best margin and cash flow in recent past. Our initiatives on increasing efficiency and cost optimisation yielded results with EBIT margin at 11%, an expansion of 586 bps QoQ and our EBIT is flat YOY. Our sustained focus on collections and cash conservation led to a robust FCF to EBITDA conversion of 131.4% and healthy cash balance of INR 13,509Mn. We generated FCF of ₹ 2,032 Mn for the quarter with DSO at 90 days (Lower QoQ by 10 days). We witnessed a significant improvement in Design Led Manufacturing (DLM) performance specially on improved margin. Our rigorous initiatives on collection, discretionary cost control and automation continue. We expect the full benefits of improved operational efficiency to be visible by end of FY21. We remain deeply focussed on organic and inorganic strategic investments. Cyient will continue to reap opportunities for growth, improvement in operating margin, cash generation and thus delivering on the promise of maximizing the value for our shareholders."

Business performance and outlook

Aerospace & Defense

Aerospace & Defense Aerospace & Defense BU witnessed a de-growth of 10.4% QoQ and 34.8% YoY. The full impact of the COVID crisis was witnessed in this quarter with most customers reducing their spends significantly. We saw growth in our DLM business and are further likely to see strong YoY growth in this area. Cyient also received 'The Silver Boeing Performance Excellence Award' which is a testament to Cyient's dedication and consistent commitment to delivering value to its business partners across the A&D value chain Q3 revenues are expected to see a decline due to business cyclicality. The outlook for the next few quarters remains uncertain driven by poor market demand for passenger travel.
