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. Q1FY19 has set the tone for the business and we are confident of an uptick in our performance in the coming quarters. The digitization push and the data protection regulations across the globe, is making individuals and businesses realize the importance of security of their systems.”

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.”
