Rane (Madras) Limited reports strong full year results for FY 16

·         Sales & Operational income at Rs. 860.91 Crores up 10.5% over previous year

Rane (Madras) Limited (RML), (BSE: 532661, NSE: RML), a leading manufacturer of steering and suspension products and die casting products, today announced its results for the year ended 31st March 2016. 
The Company registered Sales & Operating Income of Rs. 860.91 Crores for the current year as against   Rs. 778.88 Crores for the previous year. In the domestic market, steering and linkages business registered good growth as we secured new business in Passenger Car and Medium & Heavy Commercial Vehicle segments. However, the decline in Farm Tractor and Small Commercial Vehicle volumes created headwinds to our sales performance. 
The Company had a challenging time in the After market segment, but with the introduction of several new products, managed a healthy growth.  In the exports market, die-casting business experienced marginal decline due to unfavourable product mix.  Export sales constituted 23% of the total sales for the year. 
The company was able to mitigate cost pressure such as inflationary labour and power cost, exceptional expenditure such as VRS and acquisition related expenses, through stringent cost control measures.
“We are pleased with the continuing progress of RML and its performance in FY16. We have started focusing on business from Global Tier 1 component manufacturers and seeing good momentum in this space. We have continued to win new businesses from OEMs in India and globally. We have also enhanced our capabilities and invested in state-of-the-art R&D facility to help us design and validate new products that would meet our global customer requirements.” said L. Ganesh, Chairman, Rane Group.
