Its Business momentum and environment continues to be in line with the expectations in – Aerospace, Heavy equipment, Rail, Hitech, Telecom and Content engineering.
Commenting on the results, Mr. BVR Mohan Reddy, Chairman and Managing Director, said, “We are pleased to deliver one more quarter of consistent results. Our Q1 results for FY 2011-12, indicate robust quarter on quarter revenue growth of 6.4% and year on year growth of 37.1%. In dollar terms, our revenues were at $ 77.5 million, a growth of 7.8% over sequential quarter and 40% over quarter 1 of last year.
Being the first quarter of the year, we gave annual increments to our associates and this is the predominant reason for our operating margin to drop by 180 bps over last quarter to 12.5%. Though the net impact of salary increases was 280 bps, we were able to contain the overall impact on the company at 180 bps, both due to volume growth and managing margin levers.
The quarter saw strong volume growth from both our verticals – N&CE and ENGG at 4.4% and 6.3% respectively. Our revenue mix from geographies – North America, Europe and APAC have remained stable. Out of the overall revenue growth of 6.4%, both our Top 5 and Top 10 customers grew by 5% and others grew by 8%. Though there was a decline in revenues from IEE, we saw good revenue growth from IEAI and IEG.
We continue to actively manage the various levers for improving operating margins – efficient onsite-offsite-offshore mix, right sizing the pyramid with induction of freshers and improving the productivity and utilization and we are confident of seeing positive results in the coming quarters.
Our PAT was lower this quarter due to higher tax rate on account of expiry of STPI benefits. We currently target to have 450 seats operational from October 2011 in our SEZ facilities at various locations. We are aggressively pursuing opportunities to generate more work out of our SEZ facilities.
Our liquidity position continues to be strong with a cash position of ` 393 crores.
