Commenting on the Company’s performance for 02 & H1 FV2019, Mr. Sanjay Gupta, Chairman, APL Apollo, said, “We delivered a steady performance during the quarter, registering a volume growth of 7% despite external challenges such as the transporters’ strike, floods in Kerala and slowdown in construction activities due to healthy monsoon in the months of July and August. This overall impacted demand during the period under review. However, we are already witnessing revival in volumes in Q3 and are confident of increasing the momentum in H2 FY19.

0n the business front, we are happy to share that our wholly-owned subsidiary Shri Lakshmi Metal Udyog has acquired stake in Apollo Tricoat. Apollo Tricoat recently estabilshed a facility to manufacture Tricoat tubes with the global Galvant technology. These products are eco-friendly and are used as a substitute of PVC electrical Conduit Pipes. The acquisition will allow APL Apollo to penetrate the high margin coated tubes segment and further enhance its product portfolio, while also positioning the Company as a technology-led global steel tubes company.

Given our leadership position in the sector, we are well poised to leverage on host of opportunities across various sectors of the Indian economy, which should enable us to deliver healthy growth on a high base, going for war.”
