The company now offers associated services like application development, testing and quality control and solutions based on cloud, mobility and Internet of Things (IoT) along with Information Management (IM) and Business Intelligence (BI) solutions.

The company’s 9 months revenue for FY22-23 surpassed full year revenue of the previous financial year. The company registered highest-ever quarterly revenue at Rs 171.68 crore during December quarter (Q3FY23), with a growth of 37.9 per cent YoY and 4.8 per cent quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) basis. It maintained a double-digit EBITDA margin at 16.0 per cent in Q3FY23, despite of challenging global macro-economic environment.

The company issued guidance for the first time in its prospects. Based on the robustness of order flow and increase in spending within the verticals of the company’s presence, the company announced a revenue guidance of $100 million by 2025.

The company in its FY22 annual report said that it will continue to build enterprise applications for port operators and ship management companies. The company will aid public sector agencies to transform digitally and upload their data on commercial cloud (as per the government mandate).

The driver of long-term growth for industry is the structural shift within the technology market, leading to growing primacy of IT services. Robotics, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, Internet of Things (IoT), among others is expected to be the key technology focus areas in the medium term. While the IT spending forecasts remain positive, a slowdown in the US and UK economy would impact the IT spending of the clients in these geographies. The company’s ability to add and diversify its customer base while maintaining stable margins remains key to the prospects of the company, according to CARE Ratings.
