According to CFO Ambarish Raghuvanshi, “the results reflect the weakness in the main recruiting segment in line with macro economic trends. The silver lining is that hiring is close to bottoming out and the competitive position has improved. We continue to invest in product, technology and analytics.”

The YoY increase in profits is despite a decrease in Net Sales at Rs. 529.03, down from Rs. 631.23 for the same quarter last year. On a sequential basis, sales were down as well, from Rs. 577.015 million last quarter.
