"While the external factors pose some challenges, nonetheless our focussed strategy and strong client relationships make us confident of delivering above Industry growth rates in FY20 as well," Rostow Ravanan, CEO & Managing Director said.

At the operating level, earnings before interest and tax fell sharply by 50.7 percent sequentially to Rs 117.2 crore and margin contracted 650bps QoQ to 6.4 percent on the transition to Ind AS 116 'Leases'.
