  • Operating margins witnessed a decline of 1.2% QoQ to 29.0% during the quarter as compared to the previous quarter. For the year ended march 2011, operating margins declined by 0.9% YoY. This was mainly due to slightly higher cost of sales (as a percentage of sales). For the full year FY11, operating margins declined to 29.5% from the 30.4% seen for the same period last year.
