Management Comments:

In a statement, Mr. Vayu Garware, CMD, Garware Technical Fibres Ltd. said, Business in Q1 was deeply impacted due to the COVID 19 induced lockdown. Manufacturing and sales activities came to a  standstill  across the country.  During the lockdown period,  we prioritized  the health and  well- being of our team and their families with strict SOPs and regular communications. We further focused on  collection  of  receivables,  reduction  of  costs  and  Cash  flow.  Towards  the  later  part  of  Q1, manufacturing started in a phased manner.  Domestic Market activity remained on a very low scale. We could gradually pick up supplies to the international market and were thereby able to deliver a reasonable result despite the challenges.
