VisualSoft: Slow and steady

Jan 24, 2003

VisualSoft continues to grow steadily. The company has posted a 6% sequential growth in revenues. However, higher depreciation and lower other income has caused the bottomline growth to be marginally below the topline growth figure at 4%. While the sequential growth numbers do not look impressive, YoY comparison clearly highlights the strong performance VisualSoft has posted. On a YoY basis, the revenues are up 30%. The net profits have grown at a faster pace (51%) on the back of improved margins.
