My FM’s gross turnover is said to be Rs 13.39 crore for this period and has also reported an increase in its net revenue by nearly 46 per cent.

In an email interaction with, Harrish M Bhatia, COO, My FM, said, “My FM’s gross turnover stands at Rs 13.39 crore for the period April-July ’09. Achieving break-even is a great achievement for us, and at My FM we believe that success is a journey and not an end, so we are looking forward to many more milestones. After achieving operational break-even, it is time now to expand our footprint.”
