This quarter?s performance was marked by a challenging market-led slowdown characterized by subdued demand across key markets. Despite these challenges, the company remains confident in its strong fundamentals and maintains optimism in its overall growth outlook.

Our recently commissioned brownfield faucetware capacity, operational since the previous quarter, is demonstrating positive performance. A recent notable achievement was the acquisition of a substantial portion of land for our upcoming sanitaryware facility in Gujarat. We are enthusiastic about this upcoming addition to our infrastructure, emphasizing our commitment to broadening our portfolio of value-added products.

These products will be exclusively manufactured within our facility, leveraging advanced technical capabilities and adhering to rigorous quality standards. While we will continue to outsource low-end products, typically those that do not require specialized expertise, this strategic approach ensures that our commitment to excellence remains focused on in-house production for more intricate and sophisticated offerings.?
