Our healthy order book of over $ 80 Million in the digital space is real validation that our investments have been in absolutely the right direction”.
S Swaminathan, Chief Financial Officer, Intellect Design Arena Limited, said, “We have grown by 14% over the previous year, despite the consumption of management time towards the demerger from the Parent company.

Two important deals that were expected to be closed this quarter have been deferred to the next quarter. This has suppressed revenues in Q4 “.
