ValueNotes has conducted a study of the financial performance of pure-play Outsourced Publishing Services (OPS) providers (their size, operating margins, solvency, and efficiency), principally in the Indian OPS industry. Here are some key findings from the study, which covers fiscal years 2007 through 2011:
- Since 2007, the companies in the sample achieved an aggregated compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3%.
- Revenue of the population of companies in 2011 was INR 4,005 mn, with a declining dominance of large (INR 500+ mn) companies , though other companies have seen a slow but steady growth in revenue since 2007 despite the 2009 crisis
- The aggregated revenue per employee of companies in the sample was INR 394k in 2011, a significant fall from 2009 and notably below 2007 levels
