The Board of Directors of Alstom T&D India Limited met on 29th April, 2013 in New Delhi to approve the annual results of the company. The company performed well in a challenging market by delivering strong operational performance across design, engineering, manufacturing, installation and commissioning for customers in utility, power generation, industry and infrastructure segments. The company maintained its market leadership position for the fifth consecutive year. A dividend of Rs. 1.80 (90%) per share has been recommended for the financial year.
Rathin Basu, Managing Director of Alstom T&D India, said: “The market continues to be challenging due to issues such as SEB financing, fuel supply for power generation, land availability for sub-stations and slowdown of capex.
