Q3FY19 started off on a positive note, since the inventory which was piled up in Q1FY19 was liquidated in Q2FY19 and the increase in customs duty has helped us gain additional traction from the brands to procure and manufacture domestically

Commenting on the results and performance, Mr. Jasbir Singh, Chairman & CEO of Amber Enterprises India Ltd said: “We have observed 12% growth in our AC components segment and 19% growth in our Non AC components segment in H1FY19 on Y-o-Y basis. However due to Unseasonal rains and inventory pile up across brands in H1FY19 we have seen a muted growth for H1FY19 in terms of our AC volumes.

Despite the headwinds from the industry in the first half of the year, we are confident that the demand momentum will pick up in the second half on the back of the festive season and our outlook on the full year remains the same of outperforming the industry and delivering growth in volumes on annualized basis.

Also the recent custom duty hike on Air conditioners from 10% to 20% will help us gain additional demand from brands across various product categories. This will also help us increase the wallet share in the existing customer and cater to new customers thereby increasing our market share in outsourced Room AC Segment. Moving forward, we also reiterate our confidence in our ability to sustain Company’s delivery of outstanding shareowner value.”
