Segment wise, the revenue generation from both Cyber Solutions and Energy Solutions declined by 43.8% and 34% year-over-year respectively during the reported period.
The primary reason for lower Cyber Solutions revenue for the period was on account of lower revenue from cyber tools and longer sales cycle. At the same time, revenues from Energy solution segment decreases as a result of the company’s shift in strategy to lay lower emphasis on the energy business. In this direction, the company also sold its energy audit business assets in the first quarter of 2015.
