The company has been able to increase volumes during 9M FY10 when compared to the corresponding period of last year. However, due to the situation prevailing in 9M FY09,selling prices for the company’s products were markedly higher owing to global supply disruptions. This has resulted in a situation of lower absolute revenues despite higher volumes in 9M FY10.
