The consolidated revenues (Geometric, its subsidiary and newly formed company 3D PLM) of the company grew by 49%, while the net profits were up by only 34% for FY02. The newly formed joint venture with Dassault Systems (DS), 3D PLM Software Solutions, posting losses of about Rs 3 m. 3D PLM earned Rs 1 m in revenues during 4QFY02. The company added 7 new clients in 4Q, taking to the total number of client additions during the year to 29. Of the total revenues for the fiscal FY02, the company earned 15% from projects, while the remaining 85% came from services.

It is very interesting to note that the company earns higher margins from its services than products. The EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) from the products revenues stream was only 33%, while the margins from the services business was 47% in FY02.

At the current market price of Rs 561, the stock is trading at a P/E multiple of 23x its FY02 annualised earnings. While the company has managed to post a robust performance for the fiscal and expects a average 10% sequential growth in revenues for FY03, retail investors should also keep in mind company’s small size and the potential impact to its financials due to loss of a key account.
