Havells’ Revenue Contracts In Q3 Due To Slower Industrial Sales, MD Says

Havells India Ltd.’s revenue contracted in the quarter ended December, mainly due to slower industrial sales, according to its Chairman and Managing Director Anil Rai Gupta.

“While our revenue has come down in this quarter, if you dissect the results a little bit, the entire de-growth is from only 30 percent of the business which is dependent upon industrial sales—industrial switch care, industrial cables, and professional luminaires,” Gupta told BloombergQuint in an interview on Wednesday.

“All the residential and consumer-oriented businesses have been at least able to maintain their revenues,” he said, adding that the electrical products maker has seen some challenge in the cash flow situation of the marketplace, and hence contractors don’t have enough cash to complete the project.
