Commenting on the company's financial performance, Mr. Amit Patel, Managing Director, Sintex Industries, said:
FY12 has been an extremely challenging year. A glaring slowdown domestically in the government business and the global recession led to underutilization of capacities and reduced margins. Domestically, we view this opportunity to streamline the monolithic business in terms of working capital efficiency, site management and build a profitable business model considering the changing dynamics of current business environment. I am confident we will emerge much stronger and will be back on growth track in near term. Our prefab business has grown reasonably well during the year.
The recessionary trend in Euro zone hit our custom molding business leading to a drop in both topline as well as the bottomline. We are aggressively tapping synergies as we domestically embrace the technology and enhance our capabilities to service customers globally.
The stringent measures that we take today will deliver improved returns on businesses and efficient cash management.
