Speaking about the performance of AIS, Mr. Sanjay Labroo, MD & C.E.O., AIS said –
“Our performance this quarter was in line with our expectations. With the improvement in macro-economic scenario, compared to last quarter our sales grew by 8% and operating profits grew in line with sales. The key area of concern remains high exchange rate volatility and continued imports which impacted us very severely.
We look forward to meet our budgets against the backdrop of good business environment marked by good monsoon this year and positive reforms like GST in the near future.”
