Gurgaon, India (PressExposure) December 30, 2009 -- The PAT reported for the quarter ended September '09 stands at Rs. 10.10 Cr as compared to the PAT Rs. 4.10 Cr for the corresponding previous period. This follows a strong bottom-line focus that marked the preceding quarter too.
The company has recorded Consolidated Gross Sales/Income of Rs. 558.36 Cr for the period ended FY 09 as compared to Rs. 637.20 Cr for FY 08. The quarter ended September '09 is doubly significant for a marked upward trend in both the top and bottom-line.

Commenting on this, Anil Nair said, "I truly believe that good business is a continuous process of going after what seems impossible relentlessly and reversing the odds; of discarding redundant processes while nurturing and developing the right people and resources to ensure outcomes beyond expectations.
