SIFYNew Delhi, India, October 24, 2013: Sify Technologies, a player in Managed Network, IT and Application services in India with growing global delivery capabilities, has announced its consolidated results under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013-14.

Revenue for the quarter ended Sep 30, 2013 was INR 2505 million, an increase of 22% over same quarter last year. EBITDA for the quarter was INR 424 million, an increase of 180% over the same quarter last year. Net Profit for the quarter was INR 111 million as against a net loss of INR 57 million for the same quarter previous year, excluding a one-time gain of INR 658 million from sale of associate as reported earlier. CAPEX during the quarter was INR 700 million. Cash balance at the end of the quarter was INR 1614 million.

Raju Vegesna, Chairman and Managing Director, said, “In spite of a challenging external environment across most sectors in India, we are continuing to see good traction for our solutions offerings. While these tight fiscal conditions have naturally resulted in some delays in customer decisions on major projects, we are also seeing that clients are consolidating their services with established service providers. As a well-entrenched player across the entire ICT ecosystem, we are better able to expand our share-of-wallet by leveraging our broad portfolio to provide cost-effective solutions.

The other trend that we are seeing in this market is that emerging enterprises are beginning to adopt IT in a large way. Our wide bouquet of services, and our ability to scale and implement them quickly, translates into greater value for our customers. Our investments in capacity building will be in time with market demands. That way, we are able to monetize our investments better and still respond to increased customer demands resulting from consolidation.”

Kamal Nath, CEO, said, “Our entire focus revolves around bringing the client into the Sify environment. Given our capabilities across the entire ICT eco-system, clients are able to fully leverage the benefit of choosing multiple services from us, thus lowering their TCO and also giving us a larger wallet share of their IT spends. Our investment in building new DC capacity at both Noida and Mumbai is attracting strong interest from major customers seeking consolidation of services. The services business is beginning to see growth, in particular the Cloud and Managed services.”

M P Vijay Kumar, CFO, said, “We have seen a consistent upward trend in both revenue and profitability. Apart from the increased sales of our services portfolio, the other major reason for our improved performance has been our continued strict adherence to financial discipline. Our focus will be in increasing revenue with existing clients through more services, while negotiating mutually beneficial economic terms with new clients. Our investment in infrastructure continues to be demand-driven. Cash balance at the end of the quarter was INR 1614 million.”
