its second consecutive quarter of loss. However, respite was se en
following gains of some global peers.

shore up lending.

for leasing out eight operational national highways with total length of
586 km under the tolloperatetransfer rights auction of public roads at

expansion. Investments will also be made for compliance requirements.

crore in the corresponding period of the previous year. Sequentially the

measures such as closing international and domestic branches.

yearago period. Revenue from operations increased more than 9% to Rs.
135.20 crore.
Asian markets went up as investors set aside the ongoing concerns over
the trade row between U.S. and China and resorted to bargain hunting on
recent beaten down stocks. Higher global crude oil prices and corporate
earnings results from U.S. further contributed to the upside. Today (as of
Aug 8), Asian markets opened higher following positive close on the Wall
Street overnight. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading up 0.25% and
0.32%, respectively (as at 8 a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed on a positive note
following rise in Asian equity market and investors monitored latest batch
of corporate earnings. Sector wise, mining and energy stocks rose
following rise in commodity prices. Automakers also was among the top
performing stocks.
As per the last close, U.S markets rose on continuous upbeat corporate
earnings news that overlooked concerns about the ongoing trade dispute
between the U.S. and China. Volumes were subdued as market
participants remained on the sidelines due to absence of major U.S.
economic data.
