Commenting on the company’s performance, Mithun. K. Chittilappilly, Managing Director, V-Guard Industries Ltd said “The second wave of Covid-19 was more severe and our stronger markets went through extended closures, impacting consumer demand. Our manufacturing units in Sikkim were also impacted due to lockdowns. In the context of demand constraints, our Electricals and Durables segments have performed well. Commodity cost inflation has been significant in the recent months. While we have been able to offset a major part of it, some more pricing actions are being planned. We expect the business to bounce back strongly in the coming quarters”.
