For the quarter ending June 2008, Aptech Limited, the Global Learning Solutions Company, announced its stand-alone results. The standalone unaudited reviewed financial results were taken on record at the Board Meeting held in Mumbai.

Owing to the impending restructuring of Aptech's holding in the Chinese Joint Venture consequent to the Framework agreement, executed on 20th March 2008, which is yet to be followed up by the execution of definitive agreements, the accounts for the quarter could not be consolidated, pending receipt of the appropriate financial information. The consolidated numbers will be materially different from the standalone numbers.

On a standalone basis, Aptech posted an increase of 18% in its revenues and 60% in operating profits compared to same quarter last year. The revenues from the retail education business increased by 42% in this quarter.

Commenting on Aptech’s performance, Mr. Pramod Khera, CEO & MD – Aptech Ltd., said “The second quarter saw all our brands expanding across India & abroad. We forayed into Mauritius & Botswana in keeping with our plan of expanding in Africa. The newly launched brand of N-Power is forging ahead with 30 centres operational. ”
