As Enterprises increase focus on their core area of operations, our focus is now to build relevant vertical strengths across industries. As the Government’s digitization moves gather speed, we should see broader demand for our service bouquet.”

Kamal Nath, CEO, said, “There is a consistent, increasing demand from Enterprises and Government to move their workload to Cloud. In addition, the inevitability of data residency will demand a robust network to support such a transition. These are reflecting positively on demands for our “[email protected]” service lines and a larger offtake of our network capacity. Our focus on building vertical strengths is also being sounded out by clients from different industries and is giving a distinct character to our revenue mix, profitability and order book.

MP Vijay Kumar, CFO, said, “Our strong Network and Data Center service lines are seeing a logical offtake in a tightening market place. While we continue to pursue investments in Data Center infrastructure, we are also seeing clients increase their engagement across our multiple service lines. This, along with our fiscal prudence, will help us broaden our revenue base. Our cash balance at the end of the quarter stands at INR 1262 Million.”
