Commenting on the results and financial performance of Schaeffler India Limited, Harsha Kadam, Managing Director, said, “The economic growth continues to face headwinds and the current quarter witnessed further deceleration. While the government’s efforts to revive the growth momentum is evident and the policy rate cuts, fiscal stimulus provide some respite to the corporates, the investment climate and the consumer sentiments remain tepid. The expected turnaround in automotive industry during festive season has not been realized. We could avoid significant impact on sales, with a balanced portfolio in Automotive and Industrial business, while effectively flexing costs during the quarter. A quick turnaround of the growth momentum is not anticipated, we continue to draw up measures to stretch ourselves in terms of improving cost structure, preparing organization for the future and scale up our operations as the market improves”.
