Excluding this, the company's net profits have declined by 64%. On a YoY basis, Global's topline has grown by 6% and net profits have dipped by 13% (excl. extra-ordinary income of Rs 1,319 m). The operating margins for the company have declined by 820 basis points. This due to the decline in sales the company has seen.
