The debt-ridden company yesterday reported shrinking of

consolidated loss to Rs 130 crore for the December quarter,

mainly on account of closure of its loss-making mobile

business.

The company had reported a loss (attributable to equity

holders) of Rs 531 crore in the same period a year ago. It

also sharply lowered its loss from Rs 2,712 crore in the July-

September quarter of the ongoing fiscal.

“RCom’s planned exit from the consumer business has

achieved more than the desired results. RCom has reduced its

net loss by over 95 per cent. RCom expects to deliver even

better financial performance in the coming quarters,” RCom

Chairman Anil D Ambani said in a statement.
