“The first quarter of the fiscal year started on a subdued note due to the second wave of Covid-19. The top line was clearly impacted as state-wise lockdowns resulted in muted demand from key end-user industries such as alcohol, food, and beverages in the packaging segment and lower demand from the construction & infrastructure sector impacting building products segment. During the quarter, we continued to focus on maintaining higher operational efficiencies and our cost control measures,” Sandip Somany, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, HSIL Limited, said.
He further added, “We bounced back quickly from lockdown 1.0 and delivered strong growth in FY 2021. In near term, we are optimistic that economic recovery is expected to normalize the demand and going ahead, we will deliver profitable and sustainable growth.”
