Considering that first half year performance of the Company is traditionally lower as compared to second half due to external factors affecting business environment of the Company, it is expected to end the year with still better performance.
Continued economic recovery in the Gulf Region and heavy spending on infrastructure by Government both in U.A.E. and Qatar, have helped Unisafe Dubai and Phoenix Qatar to report improved performance. The fire safety business in Middle-East has been a major contributor to the topline and bottomline of the Company.
The Indian business also continued with improved performance. Zicom on standalone has shown an increase of 23 per cent in the topline. Besides, performance of Zicom SaaS has been remarkable with topline showing growth of 122 per cent and bottomline rising by 45 per cent. The continued interest from Indian Bankers to Zicom’s ATM surveillance solutions has helped Zicom SaaS to show this encouraging performance.”
