Indian and European Operations continued with their growth momentum in the full year from April 1, 2018, to March 31, 2019. Both registered double-digit revenue growth, led by a strong performance in the commercial vehicle segment, especially truck.

"Considering the headwinds, we have managed a healthy volume growth across geographies for the full year, as well as, in the fourth quarter of FY19," says Chairman Onkar Kanwar. "The bottom line has been impacted, especially in Q4, due to the write-off for ILFS, and the raw material prices, as a basket, going up by nearly 10% (in Q4).

"In India, with the green shoots already visible in the replacement market, we are optimistic about the overall sales picking up post the elections; European Operations, on the other hand, will continue with its strong performance on the back of increased supplies from Hungary."

Apollo’s board of directors commended a dividend payout of 325%, to be approved by the shareholders at the forthcoming annual general meeting.
