The makers of industrial and automotive lubricants reported earnings for Q4 of the calendar year 2021 (the company follows calendar year accounting) with strong revenue growth of 17 percent year on year (YoY). However, the margin came down to 24.3 percent versus 27.5 percent and therefore, profits have been flat.
In an interview to CNBC-TV18, Baxi said, “EV technology is changing very fast and we need to make sure that the products that are launched on EV are commensurate with how the EV cars are shaping up and in terms of their launch as well. Globally as well, we supply to almost 50 percent of EV car manufacturers. We are working with the two-wheelers as well and in due course, we should have products ready in terms of the new changes.”
On price hike, he said, “Crude prices are expected to give us a headwind and there is volatility in crude prices as well. As we have done in the past, we do respond through price increases. I would like to clarify that our price increases are more strategic in nature. We try not to look at just a quarter but try to look at more medium and long-term.”
