Tata Infotech net slumps 50%

Tata Info has posted a sharp decline of 50.2% in net profit to Rs 183.9 m.

The company's sales have improved marginally by 8% to Rs 3.2 bn. In the past the company depended heavily on Unisys for marketing support in the USA. But this year it has set up its own marketing offices which has led to increase in expenditure. However the results of the increased marketing would show up only after some time. Hence the dip in operating margins as well as net margins.
