Revenue from operations grew 20.3 per cent to Rs 1,418.2 crore in the reported quarter, from Rs 1,178.3 crore a year ago, it added.

To this end, the company added several industry-leading technology partners to its ecosystem during the quarter, significantly strengthening its digital capabilities, he added.

Firstsource has also announced the acquisition of The StoneHill Group, a US-based mortgage services provider.
