The regulated markets and the institutional business continue to deliver healthy growth with an improved sequential performance on a higher revenue base. API performance during the quarter was impacted due to planned/ temporary suspension of production at company’s facilities in Pondicherry and Cuddalore for a significant upgrade of infrastructure. Both the plants are back in operations at full swing.”
