million from Rs 1,208 million, operating Margin came down by 13 percent to Rs

OnMobile has launched with one more country as part of
the Telefonica LatAm deployment during the quarter taking our reach to 12
countries and 99 percent of the addressable subscriber base in that market.


OnMobile’s business in other emerging markets, notably
Africa and in developed markets like Europe and North America also showed
impressive gains with new customer deployments and product launches.


The company said it maintained EBITDA margins in line
with revenue growth, despite continuing investments towards geographical
expansion in Latin America, North America and Africa.

SMS, Voice, Video, WAP, Web, USSD and On-Device Portals, enabling OnMobile’s 92
telecom and media customers to generate high revenues.
