Chairman & Managing Director K.K. Singh said. “We have virtually completed our transformation from a services oriented business to an IP led one. This entailed building a repository of world-class intellectual property through in-house development and acquisitions, for providing differentiated enterprise-level solutions to various vertical segments. These solutions have been received very well by the market and we are increasingly seeing the monetization of these investments, through higher IP based revenues and longer term annuity contracts. In the coming years, we are confident that this transformation will have an even more significantly positive impact on our performance.”
