Commenting on the result, Mr. G. Bala Reddy, Managing Director, ICSA (India) Ltd said, “This quarter passed as we expected and according to us it went well. Infrastructure segment contributed 67% to the overall revenues with ESS segment contributing 33%. IPS revenues increased by 8% on a quarter on Quarter basis but the ESS revenues remained flat. Similarly, margins at the operating level were sustained at 28% for ESS segment and 11.9% for IPS segment.
The momentum in the technology sector started but in a very small manner. ICSA has received orders from R-APDRP to the tune of Rs. 17 Crores but the overall Technology order inflow for the quarter was at Rs. 47 Crores from ESS segment.
As per our internal plans of concentrating on the higher end transmission segment for IPS business, ICSA witnessed a total order inflow of Rs. 255 cr., and all of it is in the transmission segment. Of the total, about Rs. 195 Crores was from 400Kv Transmission.
Efforts to strengthen technology sector are beefed up and as we have been expecting the balance half of the current financial year is expected to yield some good results. We are hopeful that from the current quarter the order inflow in ESS segment also will increase. Automation technology orders are expected from 2- 3 more states and similarly, SCADA orders for at least 2-3 states are expected to be floated during the quarter.
Energy Metering division is also expected to show good results in the current quarter as the order pipeline is being built which would result in order inflow during the current quarter.”
