The company had posted a net loss of Rs 5.20 crore for the corresponding quarter last fiscal.

Total income from operations rose by 18.6 per cent to Rs 5,219.31 crore for the reported period compared to Rs 4,400.46 crore in the year-ago period, the company said in a filing to the BSE.

For fiscal 2014, the company reported a net profit of Rs 101.42 crore against a net loss of Rs 623.31 crore for 2012-13. Total income from operations stood at Rs 19,665.90 crore in FY14 against Rs 17,212.95 crore in the previous year.

"Tata Communications has delivered a year of strong growth and has strengthened its competitive positioning in the market. Our ongoing focus on execution, talent development and sharpening our value proposition is delivering tangible value," Tata Communications MD and CEO Vinod Kumar said.

The company said growth in revenues was broad based with strong momentum across all segments.

The wholesale voice business continued to outpace the global market growth rate recording 11 per cent growth in revenue from operations compared to FY2013, it said.

"Global data segment recorded a strong year with 17 per cent growth in revenues, primarily attributed to strong demand from global enterprise customers for Ethernet, VPN solutions and a host of managed services," it added.
