In constant currency, the company grew one percent sequentially during the quarter, he added.
    
NIIT saw healthy expansion in revenue in Asia Pacific (APAC) and India on the back of execution of large orders secured during the year, increasing revenue share from the region to 21 percent.
    
Americas contributed 44 percent, while Europe, Middle East and Africa accounted for 35 per cent of the revenue. The company added five new customers during the quarter, with two in the US and one each coming from EMEA, APAC and India.
