After 4 consecutive disappointing quarters investor mood will change in stock only if it can meet its 3 year margin guidance of 450bps margin expansion
Revenues growth of ~13% YoY in revenues to be driven by a robust order execution in FY12 + Re depreciation which will work favorably for the overseas orders
