The Retail segment witnessed a marginal dip of 5% in Revenues whereas volumes have grown by 2%.

We expect in current year to see growth momentum supported by higher volumes and better realizations due to innovative product & solutions offerings.”

Mr. Nitin Kulkarni, Chief Financial Officer, Quick Heal Technologies Limited, added “The improvements in Operating Profits as well as Net Profits is an indication of our relentless efforts on strict cost controls. In Q4, we have consciously kept retail sales at lower levels in order to ensure that there is no unnecessary further increase in Receivables level. As a strategy, we want to limit further elongation of credit period.”

Mr. Vijay Mhaskar, Chief Operating Officer, Quick Heal Technologies Limited, commented “Over the last few quarters we have been focusing on activation and liquidation of stocks at various channel levels by actively engaging with them through customised campaigns. We are also continuously working on enhancing customer experience by introducing innovative products and solutions relevant to the highly dynamic and ever evolving threats and commercial launch of Home Network Security and Enterprise Mobility Management is a testimony of the same. With few more new products in the offing, we strive to keep the customer safe from various cyber threats and widen our offerings resulting in better growth prospects for Retail and Enterprise & Government segment.”
