HCL Tech: Lacks the punch!
Apr 19, 2006

HCL Technologies announced its results for the third quarter ending March 2006 (the company’s financial year ends in June). For 3QFY06, revenues grew at a decent sequential rate, driven by strong performances of the BPO and infrastructure management businesses. Software service revenues however, grew at a slow pace sequentially. Operating margins saw a slight reduction due to higher sales, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses. However, due to considerably higher other income, the bottomline growth outperformed the growth in operating profits.
