Commenting on the company’s performance, Mr. Mithun. K. Chittilappilly, Managing Director, V-Guard Industries Ltd said “FY 20 has been a very challenging year.  The macroeconomic slowdown during the first nine months presented a significant challenge, and this was compounded by the CoVid-19 pandemic in Q4.  We expect the effect of the pandemic to last for a few months, during which consumer demand for discretionary items will remain subdued.  However, the fundamentals of the business remain strong; we have significantly improved our gross margins and we continue to invest in innovation and business capabilities to achieve our long-term ambitions.  We see the current challenges to be a temporary phenomenon and our balance sheet is strong enough to withstand these headwinds.  We are confident that the business will bounce back strongly in the months to come”
