Financial Performance

The Company has been constantly moving up the value chain with a focus on deliveringhigh-value, enterprise-wide solutions and services in India and in the internationalmarkets. During the year, the Company brought on a board number of senior executives inall geographies. These inductions are a part of Rolta’s transformation from aservices-centric Company to one that is now delivering high-value consulting services andsophisticated solutions based on its own IP.

The Company’s total consolidated revenue for the year 2012-13 was ` 2,178.78Crore, representing a growth of 19.1% (` 1,828.79 Crore for the previous year endedJune 30, 2012). Revenue growth in our business was driven by increased sales of Enterpriselevel solutions incorporating Rolta’s own IP and products that employ enterpriseapplication integration (EAI) software, services oriented architecture (SOA), businessintelligence software, cloud computing and also due to the acquisition of AdvizeX duringthe year.

The Profit before exceptional items and tax in the year ended 30th June, 2013 was `318.59 Crore as against ` 285.74 Crore in the year ended 30th June, 2012. This representsan increase of 11.5%.

This represents decline of 446.3%. However without consideringexceptional item Profit after tax in the year ended 30th June 2013 was ` 314.49 Crore asagainst ` 242.34 Crore in previous year representing growth of 29.8%.

During the year as a matter of prudence and to align depreciation policy with thecurrent replacement cycle taking into consideration various factors such as technologyup-gradation and industry best practices, the Company has revised the estimated usefullife of all assets. The useful life of Computer Systems is now estimated at 2-6 yearsagainst 4-10 years earlier, Other Equipment at 10 years against 20 years earlier,Furniture & Fixtures at 10 years against 15 years earlier and Vehicles at 5 yearsagainst 10 years earlier. Consequent to the above, there is an additional charge fordepreciation during the year amounting to ` 1,153.68 Crore which is shown as anexceptional item. Further consequent to this profit for the year (after exceptional item)is lower by ` 1,153.68 Crore. However, this has no impact on operating profits as well ascashflow for the year ended June 30, 2013. Further to disclose the fair value of Freehold& Leasehold Land, the Company has revalued these assets by ` 1,057.10 Crore based onindependent valuations and an equivalent amount has been credited to the RevaluationReserve Account. This revaluation has no impact on P&L for the year and the net impacton reserves after considering change in estimate & revaluation of assets is ` 96.58Crore.

The basic Earnings Per Share before exceptional item and tax for the year ended June 302013 was ` 19.49 and after exceptional item and tax for the year was ` (52.02), computedby considering the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year as perthe provisions of ‘Accounting Standard -AS-20’ issued by the Institute ofChartered Accountants of India.

The Company’s net worth increased to ` 1,939.01 Crore as on June 30, 2013 from `1,919.77 Crore in June 2012, reflecting the inherent strength of the Company. The bookvalue per share as on June 30, 2013 is ` 120.19 as against ` 119.00 at the end of June 30,2012.

The Company’s standalone revenue declined to ` 1,310.94 Crore for the year endedJune 30, 2013 as against ` 1,468.07 Crore in the previous year. During the year Companyfurther transformed its business by moving up the value chain & focusing on solutionsales based on Company’s own IP. In this process, Company has consciously moved awayfrom the low end services due to which the revenue for the year ended June 30, 2013 wasslightly low.

The Profit before exceptional item and tax in the year ended 30th June, 2013 was `417.18 Crore as against ` 360.66 Crore in the year ended 30th June, 2012 representing anincrease of 15.7%.
