Geometric today announced a rise in the company’s consolidated operating revenues to Rs. 1,632.02 Mn this quarter, a growth of 7.4% from the previous quarter revenues of Rs. 1,519.31 Mn; and of 28.6% from revenues of Rs. 1,268.75 Mn in the same quarter last year. The company declared a profit after tax (after extraordinary items) of Rs. 152.73 Mn as compared to the previous quarter’s profit of Rs. 138.18 Mn and Rs. 162.41 Mn in the same quarter last year.
Announcing the results, Mr. Ravishankar G., Managing Director & CEO said, “Our revenues have seen good volume growth; the upward movement of revenues was driven by volume growth in PLM services, followed by engineering services. The Products business has also shown a good upward trend, due to strong sales of CAMWorks© and Feature Recognition technology. With customers globally looking at augmenting their product portfolios and expanding into growth markets, while driving capital and operational efficiencies, the demand for PLM and Engineering services is expected to be on the increase, as we go along.
We were able to deliver on this growth, while sustaining our margins, even after absorbing the impact of mid-term salary hikes, variable pay, and increase in training costs. We have added ten new customers this quarter, despite the quarter being traditionally a slow quarter due to the holiday season in our major markets.
Resource acquisition today is one of the biggest challenges for the Indian IT sector. In the last couple of quarters, we have laid a lot of emphasis on employee engagement and retention initiatives, and have also increased our focus on building in-house capabilities, which have helped us reduce our attrition levels significantly this quarter.”
With the verticalized structure in place, this quarter saw a considerable shift in the company’s go-to-market approach. The company has now started offering its customers verticalized solutions leveraging capabilities across engineering services, software services and its own intellectual property to deliver value.
At the end of the quarter, the company had an employee base of 3,659.
The Company added ten new customers during Q3, and at the end of the quarter, it had 111 active customers, including 18 customers with million dollar plus revenues. Some of the significant wins this quarter include:
