    Power packed performance by Polaris, Butů

    Most of you must be wondering why the But! Well, Polaris Software has indeed reported a YoY 125% growth in its net profits to Rs 110 m in 1QFY01 on a revenues of Rs 519 m. But compared to previous quarter (4QFY00), the company's profits declined by 3%. If one were to exclude the other income from the profits, the company has actually grown its profits by 17% to Rs 102 m.

    (Rs m) 4QFY00 1QFY01 Change
    Sales 463 519 12.2%
    Other Income 27 9 -68.2%
    Expenditure 366 403 10.1%
    Operating Profit (EBDIT) 96 116 20.5%
    Operating Profit Margin (%) 20.8% 22.4%  
    Interest 0 0  
    Depreciation 8 11 48.1%
    Profit before Tax 116 113 -2.2%
    Tax 2 3 68.7%
    Profit after Tax/(Loss) 114 110 -3.3%
    Net profit margin (%) 24.6% 21.2%  
    No. of Shares (eoy) (m) 34.1 34.1  
    Diluted number of shares 34.1 34.1  
    Diluted Earnings per share* 13.4 12.9  
    *(annualised)      

    It has been able to improve its operating profit margins to 22.4% due to less than proportionate increase in the expenditure. But net profit margins declined to 21.2%(1QFY01 - 24.6%) because of higher interest cost and depreciation charge.

    During the quarter e-commerce solutions have contributed around 24% to the revenues of the company. It is in the process of setting up subsidiaries in Australia, Germany and Switzerland

    At the current market price of Rs 813, Polaris Software is available at a P/E of 63 times its 1QFY01 annualised earnings.
