Management commentary over the short-term was cautious; the outlook for the long-term, however, was more reaffirming.
The management has not specified any growth guidance for FY10E as budgets are in the process of being finalized.
In the last call, however, the management indicated that they see a growth in excess of 50% over the next 2-3 years. For FY09E, OGL expects to grow at 50-55% with net margins of 20-21%.
