“Q4FY20 has been impacted by outbreak of Covid-19 Corona Virus. The outbreak of Covid-19 globally and resultant lockdown in many countries, including from 22nd March 2020 in India, has had impact on the business of the company. Consequently lower production for its steel products has impacted the margins,” Ajay Kumar Bansal, Chairman and Managing Director, Hi-Tech Pipes Ltd. said.
“The lock down of Covid-19 is also continuing in FY21 and the company is continuing its operations in all major business units with current lower production. Management is expecting that demand for products will improve on stabilization of Covid-19, post removal of lock down in Quarter 3 onwards,” Bansal added.
