The group recorded operating profit of USD 125 million for the nine-month period, as compared to the operating profit of USD 102 million in the corresponding period of preceding financial year.

The Q3 operating profit came at USD 46 million, up by 40 percent when compared to USD 32.9 million booked in Q3, 2016.
