Suzlon has cuts its sales growth to Rs 21,000 crore, earlier sales were at Rs 14,500 crore in the first nine months, according to the statement.
The chairman Mr. Tulsi Tanti said in the statement, “However, it is unfortunate that inspite of having our best-ever orderbook, we have had lower volumes in Q3 FY12, leading to a downward revision of our full year guidance. These lower volumes were primarily due to an extended monsoon in India, grid infrastructure delays in China, and a procedural delay in closing our new working capital facilities.
Mr. Robin Banerjee, Chief Financial Officer said: “Focusing on the third quarter, we have maintained our gross profit margins at a robust 33 per cent. During Q3 we posted a cash profit of Rs. 26 cr, against a net loss of Rs. 286 cr, which was primarily due to certain non-cash items like international deferred tax liabilities of Rs. 121 cr and depreciation of Rs. 170 cr.
Shares of the company on Monday were trading lower at Rs 28.35 down by 2.40 points or 7.80% on BSE.
