Tata Chemicals revenue grows 8% in Q1 FY'14
Aug '13
Commenting on the company's Q1 FY13-14 performance, R Mukundan, managing director, said:"Overall for the quarter, domestic businesses showed decent performance with the chemicals and consumer business portfolio registering satisfactory numbers. Fertilisers and agri-business had an adverse impact of foreign exchange volatility and raw material shortages. International entities are challenged with issues of softening demand, lower realisations, plant stoppages and increasing energy prices.

Consumer-facing business continued its progressive journey with i-Shakti pulses registering 79 percent growth in sales compared with the same period last year. Tata Swach sales picked up during the quarter impressively.

We remain cautious on the global demand scenario going forward, domestically as well as internationally, and while prices may remain at the same levels, margins remain under pressure. Subsidy outstanding has come down as compared to March 2013 levels, but will continue to remain challenged in the balance portion of the year.

The implementation of the nutritional solutions plant in Chennai is on schedule. On the strategic front, we continue to focus on building the specialty chemicals and consumer business portfolio."
