Commenting on the results, Anand Agarwal, Group CEO, STL, said, Amidst long term data network growth, the market environment in 2019 witnessed uncertainty and sluggish growth on account of the economic downturn. Within this business environment globally, we increased our order book over the last quarter and have shown a 21% revenue growth (9‐months YTD) as compared to last year. Our transformation from an optical fiber company to an end‐to‐end data networks integrator has significantly increased our overall addressable market. We continue to be extremely bullish and focused on our data network integration capabilities by investing in growth areas such as Data Centers and Wireless solutions.
