Our strategy through the downturn has been to build our strengths rather than limit ourselves to navigating the challenges. Following this route, we are confident of emerging stronger when the economic environment improves and better poised to deliver enhanced value to all our stakeholders. We are sharpening focus on Research & Development, Intellectual Property-based solutions, and 'New Engagement Models' (NEMs) that offer flexible pricing and greater operational control and efficiency to clients. In addition, true to the spirit of our Global Delivery Model, we are continuing to invest and expand in regions such as India, Brazil, Mexico, and China. We have a sales group dedicated to large outsourcing deals that has helped us secure significant projects this year. We believe our expertise in large-scale transition management will differentiate us in the near future.
Clients have been impressed by our engineering services. An industrial products and services company is testing our 'Enterprise Collaboration Platform' to transform its intranet from an information repository into a next-generation content hub that engages employees better. A leading mobile service provider selected us as its strategic partner to run its 'Bid Management Process'. The deal involves setting up our patent-pending 'Infosys Sales Effectiveness Center' that will own the bid process, pricing, and contract services. For an apparel manufacturer, we are implementing our 'Product Master Syndication Solution' that will support the entire product lifecycle and provide a single source of data. A power major sought our 'Plant Design and Management System Solution' that enables collaboration across distributed teams. A large manufacturer selected us as its prime systems integration partner to implement and support our Product Lifecycle Management solution based on Siemens TeamCenter product.
We continue to focus on large transformational engagements, especially through our consulting and enterprise solution offerings. A broadcasting company partnered with us to develop new digital media services. A service provider for retailers engaged us to develop an Order Management System. A large bank selected us to conduct end-to-end testing as well as user-acceptance testing for the implementation of Finacle(TM), our core banking solution and integration with other applications. A large bank chose us for end-to-and systems integration in the transformation program of its corporate banking e-channel system. A provider of high-performance networking systems partnered with us for a transformational program to scale up its core engineering processes.
"The global currency markets continue to be extremely volatile, even though we have seen some stability in the rupee against the US dollar this quarter," said V. Balakrishnan, Chief Financial Officer. "We continue to focus on high quality growth with superior margins. Our balance sheet has been further strengthened with cash and cash equivalents reaching US$ 2.8 billion."
