Q4 FY14 dollar revenue growth in-line; sharp jump in onsite volumes 

KPIT’s dollar revenue growth was in-line with our expectations at 3.6% qoq driven largely by volume expansion of 3.1% qoq (onsite 9.6% qoq and offshore 1.6% qoq). During the quarter the effort mix shifted onsite by 120bps qoq thus driving an improvement in blended pricing by 0.5% qoq despite decline in both onsite (-2.8% qoq) and offshore (-1.3% qoq) on account of change in service mix.
