"The fourth quarter was impacted due to the lockdown announced in March. Both topline (revenue) and bottomline (profit) were significantly impacted as we were not able to produce or sell in the last 10 days of March", Whirlpool of India Managing Director Vishal Bhola said.

Whirlpool of India's total expenses stood at Rs 1,260.34 crore in the fourth quarter of 2019-20, up 3.38 percent as against Rs 1,219.05 crore.

For the financial year 2019-20, Whirlpool of India's net profit was up 19.63 percent to Rs 490.19 crore. It was Rs 409.74 crore in the previous year.

Its revenue from operations in the financial year 2019-20 was Rs 5,992.52 crore, a rise of 11.02 percent as against Rs 5,397.65 crore in the previous year.

Over the outlook, Whirlpool of India Chairman Arvind Uppal said, "While the full extent of this pandemic still remains uncertain, given the nature of the home appliance industry, we remain optimistic that our business will bounce back sooner rather than later."

Shares of Whirlpool of India on Thursday settled at Rs 2,111.05 on the BSE, up 1.99 percent from the previous close.
