The mid-sized software services firm posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 56.51 crore for October-December 2018 against that of Rs 60.17 crore in the year-ago quarter.
The net profit dropped due to foreign exchange losses and lower operating margins as several of the deals won were currently in transition, Zensar Technologies Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Sandeep Kishore said Monday.
Its revenue from operations rose 30.5 per cent to Rs 1,035.55 crore, compared with Rs 793.76 crore in the year-ago period.
