MD's COMMENTS

Commenting on the quarter performance, Mr Bharat Puri, Managing Director, Pidilite Industries Ltd, said:

Q4 2018-19:

"While this quarter has seen some moderation in growth as a result of slower near term market growth, we have delivered double-digit volume growth for the year. While gross margins have improved sequentially, they still remain below last year as a result of input cost inflation and rupee depreciation. We remain continuously optimistic in the medium term of delivering consistent, profitable volume led growth."
