New Delhi, Jul 22 (PTI) B2B e-commerce platform Indiamart Intermesh on Thursday posted a 19 per cent increase in consolidated net profit at Rs 88 crore for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

The company had posted a net profit of Rs 74 crore in the same period a year ago.

"We have been able to navigate the disruptions caused by the second wave of COVID, much better than the last year and have sustained a profitable growth in this quarter.

"Our focus had been to continue supporting customers as well as employees in the times that had been personally challenging to many," Indiamart Chief Executive Officer Dinesh Agarwal said in a statement.

Revenue from operations rose 19 per cent to Rs 182 crore during the reported period, compared to Rs 153 crore in the corresponding quarter of 2020-21.

"As the overall demand environment improves, because of our strong network effect, financial position and investments in strengthening the value proposition, we will continue supporting businesses transforming themselves to online and capitalize on the new growth opportunities arising from the accelerated adoption of the internet," Agarwal said.

Indiamart also filed a "statement of deviation or variation in utilization of funds raised through QIP by the Company, for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, reviewed by the Audit Committee".
