Net profit was up 4.2% on a year-on-year (YoY) basis and down 23.7% on a quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) basis. The company attributed the lower QoQ net profit due to a due to increase in bond yields in 3Q-FY18 resulting in mark-to-market losses on long maturity investments (such as tax-free bonds among others) in our investment portfolio.
