    Satyam 4Q net up 164%

    Satyam has posted a 88% growth in topline for 4QFY01 compared to 4QFY00. The rise in net profits is 164% YoY. On a sequential (Quarter on Quarter) basis the topline growth for 4QFY01 is 18% and the growth in the net profit figure is 27%.

    Satyam has beaten market expectations with the superb performance. In 4QFY01 Satyam has managed to cut employee cost down to 39.6% of revenues from 41.6% in 3QFY01. But the operating & administration expenses have gone up to 23.1% compared to 21.2% in the third quarter. Thus the company has seen a decline of 50 basis points in its operating margins.

    The total employee strength as on March 31, 2001 was 8,370. The number of new employees added for the quarter was 229 of which 189 were technical. For the second quarter and the third quarter of FY01 Satyam had recruited aggressively the number of associates added were 1,339 and 1,093 respectively. The decline in the hiring rate could be due to the large numbers hired previously. However, this could be an indication of the impact of the US slowdown. Due to a tough business environment the company might have reduced its intake.
