During the year we have seen good growth across all our business segments. Though the outbreak of COVID-19 in mid of March’20 marked an unprecedented disruption, the operating margins on the full year basis improved on the backdrop of strong performances during FY20. Despite significant challenges, Zee Learn team demonstrated the strength of its operating fundamentals by taking the torch of learning forward without disruption for its network that spans over 2000 centers in 800+ locations in the country. The fallout of COVID-19 has been very challenging for the education sector and the rapid transition from classroom to the virtual space was not easy, however, we have been successful in meeting the pedagogical and cognitive needs of our students from the safety of their homes, by delivering and executing the blended learning resources and digital content curated by our seasoned academic professionals.  We remain highly focused on cash flows and liquidity management and are confident that our broad portfolio of products/services with our ability to execute our commitments would help us navigate through the current economic uncertainties.”

Commenting upon the financial performance, Mr. Rakesh Agarwal, CFO, Zee Learn Ltd., said “Despite the issues due to the currently prevailing conditions, we are happy that the Company has posted decent results for Q4FY20 and FY20 through excellent management of our resources, cash and with the support of our business partners.”
