The Company mainly operates in a single segment and therefore segment reporting asrequired under Accounting Standard -17 is not applicable.
The business revenues are sourced predominantly from the US market. Given the prolongedeconomic impact in this market, Trigyns business could be adversely impacted. Thisimpact could also be felt by the State and Local Governments, as these entities arenegatively impacted by a loss of tax revenues and institute budget cuts for resources andpostpone or cancel projects. Another area of concern for the Company is the increasinglevel of competition across the IT services industry. With a shrinking number of clientdollars and more competitors chasing these dollars, the threat to revenue and equally assignificant, profit margins, become ever more likely.
