Net income fell to $20.2 million, or 36 cents per share, from $26.2 million, or 46 cents per share, a year earlier.
Analysts on average had expected earnings of 43 cents per share on revenue of $277.5 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. (Reporting by Aditi Shrivastava in Bangalore; Editing by Saumyadeb Chakrabarty)
