Sasken Q2 FY20-21 result announced

Bengaluru, October 21, 2020: Sasken Technologies (BSE: 532663, NSE: SASKEN) today announced its consolidated results as per Ind AS for the quarter and half year ended September 30, 2020.

Rajiv C Mody, Chairman, Managing Director & CEO Sasken Technologies remarked: The uncertainty and volatility caused by the COVID-19 pandemic is still playing out. Consequently, many segments which we focus on have slowed their decision making and curtailed their spends. For the second half of the year, we maintain a business outlook that is cautiously optimistic. This confidence comes in part due to our constant efforts to align our strategy in line with our customers’ emergent needs. As stated, in the previous quarter we see continued softness in demand from the automotive segment. Other segments such as industrial, satellite communication, consumer electronics, and semiconductors are slowly showing signs of growth. Our digital services are increasingly becoming more relevant in this environment fraught with VUCA. 

We are doing the best to pursue and execute business opportunities from our enviable list of customers. Our leadership team evaluates the situation and suggests actionable steps to help us navigate the uncertain environment in which we operate.  We are confident of tiding over this situation and hope to emerge stronger once this pandemic dissipates.
