Mr. Gautam Seth, Joint Managing Director, said, “We are very overwhelmed that the company has performed very good in the first half of FY23. We have seen a good growth in both the businesses, Metering & Systems segment revenue grow by 68% and Consumer & Industrial segment revenue grows by 28%. We have witnessed robust growth considering the festive season, that demonstrated promising trends in consumer spending as the economy continues to pick up in Q2FY23.

For the metering and business segment, the market is presenting high growth opportunities that is backed by favourable government plans to support the segment. Policy like National Smart Grid Mission (NSGM) and Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS) coupled with Revamped Distribution Sector Scheme (RDSS) are favourable in creating strong consumer demand and working as push factors toward the strong market of smart meters and hence the demand for smart meters seems to get good pace in the coming days.

In response to this available opportunity, the Company is well prepared as it houses an agile R&D team; has established bandwidth in manufacturing capacity; is taking advantage of a diversified Product Portfolio; and is enjoying Product Certification and wide prequalification with customers. The Company already has a strong order book in the metering segment and continues to receive new prospects and inquiries across its portfolio.

At the same time, we are geared to expand and nurture our product portfolio in each of our product categories. Furthermore, we are planning to diversify our product portfolio to reach a broader set of consumer base. We look forward to exploring more cross-selling opportunities, to open up new growth avenues.

Looking ahead, we have a strong order book position at 834 Crores, affording us a confident revenue visibility for the rest of FY23. 

We are positive that our short-term and long-term goals efforts with our dedicated focus would lead to positive market demand and ultimately result in enhanced profitability and good returns to the investors.”
