The turnover of the company jumped almost 20 per cent to Rs 8.83 billion, from Rs 7.36 billion in the previous fiscal.

Meanwhile, on a standalone basis, the company has posted a net loss of Rs 398.41 million for the full-fiscal, significantly lower than a net loss of Rs 835.03 million in the previous year.
