Going through the financials of the company, the revenues and net profits show an improving scenario with a rise in numbers. Revenues moved from Rs 32 crores in Q2 to Rs 59 crores in Q3. Moreover, the net profit figures showed a shift from Rs 0.53 crores in Q2 to Rs 1.66 crores in Q3. 

In congruence with the pattern shown by the above metrics, the profitability ratios of the company showed an upward trend on a YoY basis. The ROE figures shifted from 13.23 percent in FY20-21 to 16.24 percent in FY21-22. Likewise, the ROCE figures moved from 14.51 percent in FY20-21 to 15.89 percent in FY21-22. Return on Asset (ROA) has seen improvement over the past four financial years with the most recent movement from 4.51 percent in FY20-21 to 6.18 percent in FY21-22. 

Something of a concern is the debt to equity ratio of the company increasing from 0.13 in FY20-21 to 0.24 in FY21-22.
