Mindtree on Wednesday reported a 1.5 per cent decline in consolidated net profit at Rs. 121.7 crore for April-June, impacted by currency volatility, visa costs and one-time impact on business of one of its subsidiaries.

The “temporary volatility” in the subsidiaries’ businesses has promoted Mindtree to slash its revenue growth outlook to “high single-digit” from the earlier projection of double-digit rise in top line.
