Commenting on the results, Ratul Puri, Executive Director, MBIL, said: “This quarter has been exciting as the markets are opening up and we are confident that we will carry this positive momentum to the financial year 2011. We will continue to offer quality storage products and advanced media formats at competitive prices and will grow this business further.” He added: “With our higher efficiency Thin Film modules and EPC capabilities combined with our focus on India, I am certain that we will capture a significant share in the home market. We remain committed to the PV business in the long term and see strong buoyancy returning back into the market. With National Solar Mission (NSM), the domestic PV market has opened up rapidly which will result in India emerging as a global solar hub.”

Yogesh Mathur, Group Chief Financial Officer, said: “The past quarter performance was along the expected lines. Our Operating cash remains strong enabling the implantation of our growth plans. Capex remains judicious and that is likely to remain the trend going forward. We see the demand picking up for advanced storage media formats, especially in Blu Ray discs in the coming quarters.”

He further said: “In PV, for the second consecutive quarter we have been able to achieve strong shipment and corresponding revenue. We are now actively implementing our expansion plans of the Crystalline Silicon facility. This will help Moser Baer to contribute significantly to ‘solar shining’ movement in India.”

Rajiv Arya, CEO, Solar Business, Moser Baer India, said: “With a slew of solar projects under implementation at the centre and the states, the NSM targets that were perceived to be ambitious are now in the doable range. The Thin Film technology is best suited in ramping up grid connected solar farms in high ambient temperature regions like India. We see Thin Film technology playing a very significant role in India’s solar journey.”
