Highlights for Q3 FY2015
Highlights for 9M FY2015
A significant increase in data revenues coupled with an upswing in the enterprise segment especially from managed services were the main contributors to the robust growth in performance. The enterprise segment posted an increase in enterprise data revenues for the nine months period by 24% over the corresponding period last year – a growth that supersedes the average industry growth.
Improved operational execution in the data segment strengthened the EBITDA margins to 21% for the quarter. The voice business continues to be a steady generator of free cash in spite of a decline in volumes. Core business profitability is on an upward trajectory with PAT coming in at INR 389 million for the quarter (USD 6 million), up 27.6% QoQ, a significant turnaround from the corresponding period last year.
Commenting on the Q3 & 9M FY15 results, Vinod Kumar, MD and CEO, Tata Communications, says, “Tata Communications’ performance remains in line with our expectations. The improved margins in our data business is representative of the exponential growth of digital demand coupled with our ongoing commitment in driving our network capabilities and global reach. Looking ahead, we will remain focused on driving innovation and strategic investments in transformational services such as cloud and mobility – ensuring long-term stakeholder value.”
