Kale Consultants' topline in the 1QFY01 increased by 24.3% to Rs 68 m compared to corresponding previous quarter. However the profits declined by 80% to Rs 4 m due to rise in the personnel expenses.

The company has ramped up employee strength significantly to prepare for anticipated growth. The rise in the expenditure is also due to capitalisation of new product development cost.

At the current market price of Rs 124, the stock is trading at a PER of 98 times its 1QFY01 annualised earnings.
