Commenting on the results, Ramesh Kumar Dua, managing director in a statement said, “The year gone by posed several challenges to the business and industry due to the disruptions caused by the second wave and the omicron variant of Covid-19. Margins were affected by dual impact of substantial increase in raw material prices and normalisation of selling, marketing, and admin expenses in FY 22 in comparison to FY 21 being Covid 19 pandemic year. In these challenging times as well, we stood by our dealers & distributors and offered extra support to safeguard their margin towards GST rate differential."
"Despite all these, the company recorded revenue growth of 12% YoY which is a testimony of being the most trusted brand, having consumer centric approach, continuous product innovation and strong execution. We remain committed to all our stakeholders by creating a strong foundation for the future which can provide us sustainable and profitable growth for the long term,” he added.
