Domestic no-frills carrier SpiceJet on Friday said the company has delayed results for the fourth quarter ended March 2022 due to a ransomware attack on its IT systems which has affected the completion of the audit process within the stipulated time.
The company was to announce the January-March quarterly results on Monday (May 30).
“We wish to inform you that we are expecting a delay in submission of audited standalone and consolidated financial results of the company for the financial year ended March 31, 2022, with stock exchange due to ransomware attack on our IT systems which has affected the completion of the audit process within the stipulated time.”
