Software solutions company Zensar Technologies today posted 4.1 per cent growth in its consolidated net profit at Rs 50.71 crore for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 aided by growth in infrastructure services and rebound in Europe. The Pune-based firm had reported a net profit of Rs 48.70 crore in the year-ago period. Consolidated revenues rose by 13 per cent to Rs 592.01 crore in October-December quarter this fiscal from Rs 524.78 crore in the same quarter of 2012-13 fiscal. Commenting on the performance, Zensar technologies Deputy Chairman and Managing Director Ganesh Natarajan said: "The quarter has been upbeat with new client additions and growth from Continental Europe." The company has a robust pipeline and is confident of a good conversion in 2014, he added. "The profit growth in the third quarter has been impacted due to currency fluctuations. The currency impact was to the tune Rs 20 crore sequentially and Rs 19 crore year-on-year," Natarajan said.
Infrastructure Management(IM) business, that has been restructured over the last few quarters, has shown a sharp increase in dollar revenues of over 12 per cent sequentially, he added.
