Hinduja Global Solutions (HGS) (listed in BSE & NSE) today announced its unaudited Third Quarter Results for FY2021.
Speaking on the results, Partha DeSarkar, Wholetime Executive Director and CEO of HGS said: “HGS’ results of Q3 FY2021 demonstrate strong revenue growth despite being amid a pandemic. Growth has been driven by the Healthcare business as well as our UK business. I am very happy with how we have quickly realigned our operating model to the new normal. These results demonstrate TeamHGS’ resilience and agility.
Overall revenues for Q3 stood at Rs. 14,568 million, an increase of 15.2% YoY on like-to-like basis. PAT rose by 5.6% to Rs. 752 million. EBITDA margins for Q3 FY2021 stood at 14.2%.
Most of our business segments, including Healthcare, UK and HGS Digital, did well. Healthcare growth was led by the open enrolment season. A key driver of growth has been the number of new logo signings this year and the strong pipeline conversion. We expect sustained demand for our services in coming quarters too. Looking ahead, we are optimistic to close FY2021 on a strong note.”
