Mumbai, May 9, 2019: Asian Paints Ltd today announced their financial results for the quarter and
Twelve months ended March 31, 2019.
“The decorative business segment in India registered double digit volume growth in the fourth
Quarter. The Industrial Coatings JV (AP-PPG) witnessed good growth in the dealer channel for both,
Powder and Protective coatings. The Automotive coatings JV (PPG-AP) growth was impacted as a
result of the slowdown in the Auto OEM segment. High raw material prices and marketing spends
in the fourth Quarter affected the margins.
Challenging business conditions affected operations in some of the key markets in our International
business portfolio, especially Egypt, Ethiopia, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The Kitchen (Sleek) and
Bath (Ess Ess) business in the Home Improvement portfolio grew well and we continue to work on
scaling up these operations further” said K.B.S. Anand, Managing Director & CEO, Asian
Paints Limited.
