BLS International posts profitable Q1
In the June quarter, the global visa outsourcing service provider reported a consolidated net profit of ₹20 crore compared to a loss of 80 lakh in Q1FY21. In the same period, the company’s revenue rose by 242% to ₹178 crore.
The management has said that as borders reopen globally it expects visa business to start contributing again in the coming quarters, which is expected to significantly improve its financial performance in FY22. Shares of the company were up 11% today after the results were announced yesterday post the market hours.
The market showed completely opposite trends today. It started on an extremely weak note and dived down. However, as it reached closer to the lower end of the current consolidation range (15450-15950), buying interest emerged. Favourable opening of the European indices also provided positive cues. Meanwhile, unlike the decent results posted by the Indian IT companies earlier this month, the recently announced results by other large companies have been below street estimates. This is acting as a sentiment spoiler especially at the time when markets are trading close to their lifetime highs. The US Fed is expected to announce its interest decision tonight. While the street expects rates to remain unchanged, Fed’s commentary could have a bearing on how markets open tomorrow.
