Mumbai, India, November 15, 2021: Hinduja Global Solutions (HGS) (listed in BSE & NSE) today announced its unaudited Second Quarter Results for FY2022.

Speaking on the results, Partha DeSarkar, Executive Director and Global CEO of HGS said: “HGS reported an excellent performance in Q2 FY2022. Overall revenue for the quarter stood at Rs. 15,826 million, an increase of 18.8% YoY, while EBITDA grew by 21.2% YoY to Rs 2,269 million and PAT by 67.9% YoY to Rs 1,365 million.

The performance was driven by robust growth in revenues and margins of our UK business, our digital business as well as the healthcare business. Strong revenue growth coupled with savings from the hybrid working model helped us mitigate challenges arising from talent supply constraints to report increased EBITDA margins in Q2.

Today’s market continues to witness a strong demand for high value customer experience services. Our sustained investments in priority verticals, such as the UK public sector, and the 3As (automation, analytics and AI) in a cloud first model are creating newer opportunities for us. Clients want engagements that help them innovate, optimize and grow. The deals we have won in the last few months and our healthy pipeline exemplify this trend. Going forward, our strategy is to continue to invest in intelligently integratingpeople with technology to design enhanced experiences and position HGS as a preferred growth partner for our clients.”
