Edelweiss Financial Services
on Friday reported a sharp drop in profit before tax (PBT) at Rs 51.5 crore for the quarter ended December, against Rs 458 crore in the year-ago period, because of rise in credit costs.

The company's net profit also declined to Rs 35.32 crore in Q3FY20, from Rs 258.35 crore in Q3FY19. Total revenues from operations declined to Rs 2,639.6 crore, from Rs 2,881.9 crore in the year-ago period.
