Quotes

  Unless you can walk your talk, you can never be an outstanding leader.
  Money when lost can be got back with effort; health when lost can be got back with a lot of effort; but values when lost can never come back.
  We would be definitely looking at new verticals, not necessarily in the coming quarters. There is nothing I can share publicly regarding the same at this point in time. We have re-aligned our operations by creating two highly focused, business segments. This structure has enabled stronger customer relationship and greater business visibility that is backed by clearly defined responsibility matrices within our company.
  Our wholly owned US subsidiary, IEAI, entered into an agreement with IBM to provide Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and engineering solutions. Moreover, we have added eight new customers during the quarter, four each in GSD and EMI verticals.
  Acquisitions and mergers are part of our strategy for growth. So, organic and inorganic growth will be evaluated for the new verticals. All I could say is there is always a possibility of us growing through an acquisition.
 We are very consistent with our policies. InfoTech is not a short-term player. Just because we do something very well in a quarter, does not mean we will announce something extraordinary and take some brownies on our shoulder. We are a long-term player.
  We believe that the acquisitions are a part of growth strategy. We are working with I-bankers. Given the scenario today, valuations will be little higher than our earlier two deals.i
 We have built very strong relationships with our customers and are confident of leveraging the same well..
  My advice to entrepreneurs is to come out with a unique business plan. Long-term sustainability for a business comes from clear focus on de-risking the business model and building strong profits.

Hope viewers caught up the spark…
