CEO T.W. Liu said, “The third quarter was challenging for us, especially in costs. Our revenues grew 12.9% from last year´s third quarter, with the highest growth in IT services, up 21.2% in revenues, while consulting and solutions services revenues were down 8.4% mainly due to lower volume in SMART business as we worked off some of its backlog. Higher business volume came from our largest communications client and China banking clients, plus modest growth from our US business, but was partly offset by lower revenues in the European and Japanese markets that continued to decline during the quarter.”
