Rajan Venkatesan, Chief Financial Officer, LatentView Analytics, said, “The decline in net profit was mainly driven by higher investments in capabilities teams, sales and marketing and also lower income tax benefit since the tax holiday period was over for the SEZ that the company operates out of.”

Rajan Sethuraman, Chief Executive Officer, LatentView Analytics, said it was the first-ever quarter to achieve $20 million in revenue. In Q3 FY24, revenue growth was driven by higher revenue from existing clients.
