Geometric Software: At the crossroads?
Jan 21, 2006

Geometric Software Solutions (GSS), announced its consolidated results for the third quarter and nine-month period ending December 2005 late yesterday. The company has recorded a strong sequential topline growth for the quarter on the back of the strong performance of both the products as well as the projects businesses. Margins soared sequentially, primarily due to savings in offshore and product development manpower costs and savings on fuel and power expenses. However, considerably lower other income due to a mark-to-market loss on outstanding forward contracts has severely hit the net profits for second successive quarter. The performance in the nine-month period has been strong on the revenues front, but bottomline has been discomforting.
