Yesterday, Satyam reported a net profit of Rs 160.50 crore for the October-December 2008, a period that saw the beginning of Satyam's fall from grace. The total income was Rs 2,327.21 crore. Satyam was at lowest level in January with a profit of Rs four crore before showing signs of revival by recording a Rs 52 crore profit in February. This was despite losing about two dozen clients.
