The volatile and weak market conditions continued to cull the numbers. Reduced retail participation also led to the fall. For Q1FY12, on a YoY, its consolidated revenues declined by 4% at Rs.61.80 crore. Net profit dipped 30% at Rs.4.3 crore. The company had ended FY11 also at a lower note. For FY11, revenues were down 8% at Rs 256.3 crore and net profit by 38% at Rs 28.39 crore.For a broking firm, fixed costs are pretty huge and that eats away the margins and this, coupled with slow business hit the margins of the company. Its operating profit for Q1 was down 70%. This decline was also on account of the JV for institutional broking of BNP Paribas with Saudi Arabian stock broking business, which posted a loss of Rs.1.10 crore in Q1FY12. 70% of its business comes from delivery business which lost out due to poor market conditions. The F&O segment also added to its loss on volumes and margins.At best a hold at present levels.
