The first quarter of a fiscal year has always been lean for Netsol Technologies Limited. This year, though, the three-month period ending September 30 concluded profitably, compared to a net loss last year, as per the KSE announcement. The maiden quarter lacked vigor nonetheless, given that revenues clocked in at Rs383 million when last fiscal years total revenue was Rs2.18 billion. Good luck catching up!

Dangerously caught in the circular debt mesh, the payables and receivables of the largest state-owned OMC continue to present a dreary picture of its cash position. However, the results of the company published on KSE before Eid show a rebound in profitability for the Company compared to FY12.
It seems like the stellar performance of the cement sector in FY12 is being carried along into the new fiscal year. At least that is what the industry dynamics and results of major companies in the sector allude towards.
If putting up with email spamming wasn annoying enough, Pakistanis have also had to endure a rising incidence of SMS spamming in recent years. Thanks to cheap SMS bundles and near-ubiquitous cellular connectivity, SMS traffic has increased manifold, and with it the spamming problem.
