Mr. Kailash Katkar, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Quick Heal Technologies Limited, said; “We are extremely pleased with our performance in Q1 FY19, as this is our highest ever profit reported in Q1. The first quarter is usually the weakest, and such has been the nature of the business for long. However, we have taken steps to reduce this cyclicality and the results of the same are visible from our current performance. The Enterprise and Government segment remained flattish on account of lower than expected growth from Government business. However, ‘Seqrite’ continues to be our flagship offering for the enterprise customers.

The digitization push and the data protection regulations across the globe, is making individuals and businesses realize the importance of security of their systems.”
Mr. Nitin Kulkarni, Chief Financial Officer, Quick Heal Technologies Limited, added “The efforts being put in by the organisation to stabilise the business across all quarters is visible from our performance in Q1FY19. We are actively working on various strategies to improve our top line and at the same time, maintain a strict control over the operating overheads.”
Mr. Vijay Mhaskar, Chief Operating Officer, Quick Heal Technologies Limited, commented “Cyber threat landscape is constantly evolving, with cybercriminals getting more sophisticated and therefore finding a comprehensive solution and keeping our systems secured has become the need of the hour. Our ability to create customised solutions for diversified needs is one of the key differentiators which has helped products and solutions developed under the brands ‘Quick Heal’ & ‘Seqrite’ to gain market share.”

Siemens Limited Releases Its Financial Results for Q2 FY 2020
Siemens Limited reported a Revenue at Rs. 2,738 crore, 20.9% decline as compared to the corresponding quarter of the previous year, with a Profit after Tax at Rs. 172 crore, a 38.6% decline, for the second quarter of Financial Year 2020 as compared to the corresponding quarter of the previous year. The Company’s Order Backlog stands at Rs. 12,547 crore.
The decline in Revenues across the businesses is primarily due to deferred offtake by customers and slow-down in short-cycle business related to COVID-19 as well as continued weaker demand in large infrastructure projects.
Sunil Mathur, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Siemens Limited, said, “With the slowdown in the economy being accelerated and accentuated by the sudden impact of the Covid-19 crisis, Capex spending reduced dramatically in the current quarter. A gradual slowdown in the operations of our customers and supply chain was already visible from February. With the announcement of the lockdown, all our factories, project sites and offices were shut since the last week of March, resulting in a steep drop in revenue for the quarter. Currently six of our factories have reopened with limited operations and a further two are expected to be opened this week.”
“While we continue to optimize our operations to meet the rapid changes in the economic environment, our performance in the coming quarters will be influenced greatly by a lifting of the lockdown. We are delighted with the recent announcement of the Honorable Prime Minister of a Rs. 20 lakh crore stimulus package and now await further details, in particular with regard to Government spending in infrastructure and a revival of demand in the economy. In the meantime, we have seen a heightened interest from our Customers to find Digitalization solutions to enable them to reduce their Capex requirements, save cash and increase their productivity,” added Sunil Mathur.
