In the process, it also more than doubled its profits, earning Rs 34 crore from the Rs 15 crore it earned last year. Most of its
revenues 92% came from exports, more than 60% of which was attributed to clients in the manufacturing segment. The US was the most favored destination, contributing 70% to the export revenues.
