Acknowledging the quarterly performance Mr. Farrokh Bhathena, Director Sales and Marketing, KSB Limited said, “Third quarter has shown a substantial growth of 21% in sales with respect to previous quarter and we have registered 26% increase in the cumulative sales for 3 quarters with respect to last year. The profits earned are lesser as compared to the corresponding quarter of the last year due to effect of commodity price increase which is now significantly reflecting upon the profit margins and also, due to the fact that we are investing in people by undertaking employee-related investments to boost their morale.
We, with the current sales trend, are positive in regards to achieve the intended double-digit growth.”
