Management comment:
Commenting on the results, Manish Nuwal, Managing Director, Solar Industries India Limited said “The first half of Financial Year 2018-19 showed a strong underlying performance. Overall, the results shows that the group is making steady progress and is well positioned to deliver targeted earnings growth. I am further pleased to inform that the revenue from defence sector is at Rs. 72Cr which is in-line with our expectations. Our present defence order book stands at Rs. 471Cr which will help the company to achieve revenue target of the Defence sector.

With the government’s increased focus on infrastructure & highways development, construction of nearly 6.28 lakh more houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna along with continued emphasis on indigenous defence manufacturing are all positive indications that we are well placed and on the right path to achieve our growth targets. Company has participated in RFP’s floated by Government of India, for long term contracts of 10 Years. We have created the infrastructure to manufacture many of the ammunition items and are in process to create more. The price & technical Bids for the same are under evaluation”.
