MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY

Mr. Raju Vegesna, Chairman

Mr. Raju Vegesna, Chairman, said, “The last couple months has seen shifting winds in the macroeconomics of the world. Right through, India has retained a strong outlook for investments and growth. This is in large part due to the consistent economic policies of the government and its stated ambition to pursue digital methods to deliver social benefits.

The technology landscape has been the biggest beneficiary of these policies, and this is reflected in the growing number of incoming requests for Digital Transformation. We see Indian enterprises using this opportunity to adopt the best practices from around the world”.

Mr. Kamal Nath, CEO

Mr. Kamal Nath, CEO, said, “Enterprises are displaying a growing comfort in digital adoption across all levels. They are leveraging digital transformation to spark innovation across the enterprise, and this is resulting in an increasing number of new initiatives delivered on a digital-only platform.

While earlier, our mandate was to accelerate our clients’ transformation goals, our cloud-focused Digital initiatives are now called upon to create new business processes, customer experiences and greater cost-effectiveness. Enterprises’ increasing interest in outcome-based initiatives, incoming policies around data and the government’s aggressive adoption around all-things-digital should act as tailwinds for our Data Center, Network and Digital services”.

Mr. M P Vijay Kumar, CFO

Mr. M P Vijay Kumar, CFO, said, “We remain committed to expanding our data center and network footprint and are gradually scaling up the adoption of renewable energy in our data centers. Investment into people and tools will be complimentary to this growth, without losing sight of our fiscal roadmap.

As we scale, our focus would be on ensuring that costs are optimized and revenues are improved across our service mix.

Cash balance at the end of the quarter was INR 3794 Million”.
