"The company has achieved impressive growth in both automotive and industrial divisions. While replacement volume for both automotive and UPS batteries remain extremely encouraging, infra and OEM markets registered better than expected growth during the quarter," Exide Industries Managing Director and CEO Subir Chakraborty said.

"As an ongoing focus area, sales transformation and cost compression remain the core strategies to improve efficiencies within the company," he added.
