Q3FY21 Results:

  • Improvement in Revenues: INS' revenues increased by 25.53% to USD 12.94 million in Q3FY21 (ended September 30, 2021) compared to USD 10.30 million in Q3FY20, attributable to growth in both segments.
  • Decline in Net Income: Its Q3FY21 net income declined to USD 2.53 million from USD 2.80 million in Q3FY20.
