On the performance D. Ram Reddy, Managing Director, said: “In Q1, we faced an unprecedented phase of challenges in the Specialty Chemical industry, primarily due to a rapid global demand contraction. This has been further exacerbated by an oversupply situation in China, driven by weak domestic demand, inventory correction across the globe and slowdown in several developed markets due to stock piling. These factors have impacted the offtake and sustenance of realisation, especially in the Speciality Chemicals Market.

However, we firmly believe that this is a temporary setback and our long-term prospects remain robust. Our performance in Q1 aligns with the industry's subdued trends. We're dedicated to maintaining a customer-centric approach, consistently delivering value. This commitment underscores our dedication to serving our customers' needs effectively.

Our medium-to-long term plans are progressing as intended. Our new projects are on track, and we're working towards their successful completion without incurring any debt. We're focusing on identifying unique products, further enhancing our offerings and contributing to India's self-sufficiency goals through world-class manufacturing facilities.

Our continued leadership in Amines and their derivatives within India has been a cornerstone of our success. Our comprehensive range of specialty chemicals sets us apart from competitors. Our Unit 4 phase 2 & 3 projects are shaping up as a world-class facility, set to begin phased production from 2nd half of FY 2023-24 onwards.

We're confident about stronger long-term opportunities. We anticipate FY25 to be marked by growth and opportunities as market conditions improve. The promising future is driven by India's potential on the global stage. We are well-positioned to be a gamechanger and a performance leader as market dynamics shift. Our inherent strengths and competencies continue to guide us in navigating market complexities, propelling us toward greater excellence as leader in Amines and Specialty Chemicals.”
