Our core operations have shown remarkable strength, with significant growth in key areas that underscore the robustness of our business model. The slight deviation from our forecast does not detract from the progress we have made and the solid foundation we have built. With robust pipeline and a strong order book, we are confident in the resilience of our business model. As each of our business segments gains momentum, our belief in delivering improved performance in the upcoming years is further reinforced.”

Deepak Kumar Bansal, Executive Director and Global Chief Financial Officer of Black Box, commented, “The growth in topline was affected due to delays in decision-making, resulting in a hold-up of new orders in the second half of FY24. However, our strong focus on EBITDA and profitability over the last few quarters has begun to show positive outcomes, as evidenced by a 59% YoY growth in EBITDA and 5.8 times YoY increase in our profit after tax for FY24. We are optimistic that this trend will continue, enhancing both margins and overall profitability, and we are confident in achieving strong performance in fiscal year 2025 and beyond.”
