Motilal Oswal’s research report on Havells India
HAVL’s FY21 Annual Report emphasizes on operations in a COVID-19 disrupted year. The management continued to focus on expanding distribution, particularly in rural areas, and launching newer and innovative products. All these measures led to HAVL’s capitalizing on pent up demand arising post the lifting of lockdown restrictions, leading to a recovery in lost sales.
