The Operating Margin for the quarter is 15.03% as compared to 14.35% in Q1 F2010.

    The Gross Revenues and Other Income for the quarter ended 30th June 2010 grew by 9.4 % to Rs. 8,576.2 crores (USD 1.8 billion) from Rs.7,841.4 crores (USD 1.7 billion) in last year.

    In March 2010, with AT&T exercising its stock options, Tech Mahindra Ltd (TML) and its subsidiaries ceased to be group subsidiaries and became Joint Ventures of the Company. As a result of this change, the financials of TML Group from Q1 F2011 instead of being consolidated 100% are, as required by Accounting Standard AS 27, consolidated only in proportion to the Company's shareholding in TML. Hence the Group Revenues are not comparable with that of the previous years. On a comparable basis the Gross revenues and Other Income of the Group for the current quarter is Rs 9218.7 crores (USD 2.0 billion) - a growth of 17.6% over Q1 last year.

    The Group numbers reported above do not include that of Satyam Computers Services Ltd. whose accounts are under restatement.

    As on 30th June 2010, the Group comprised of 103 Subsidiaries, 5 Joint Ventures and 11 Associates.

    During the current quarter, some of the major group companies like Mahindra Finance, Mahindra Lifespaces and Mahindra Ugine Steel significantly improved their performance over the previous year. The performance of Mahindra Finance with a 23% growth in consolidated revenues and an 86% increase in profits, and that of Mahindra Lifespaces with a 41% growth in revenues and a 39% profit growth, deserve special mention. Mahindra Ugine Steel which had reported a loss of Rs.4.6 crores for Q1 of F-10 has registered a turnaround and reported a profit of Rs.2.8 crores for the current quarter.

    The Indian economy is poised to do well this year. While industrial growth is likely to see some moderation from the scorching pace set in Q4F10, agriculture is expected to witness a strong recovery, given the marked improvement in the progression of the south west monsoons this kharif season compared to last year. With the pace of economic expansion picking up currently both at home and abroad, the services sector which accounts for more than half of India's GDP is also expected to perform well this year. However, high and rising inflation, the likely hardening of the interest rates and the increasing volatility in global financial markets remain sources of concern. Given its strong focus on cost controls, product innovation, and customer delight, the company is confident of meeting these challenges adequately.
