Commenting on the results Subhrakant Panda, MD and CEO said: “The commodity space is markedly weak and ferro chrome is no exception with prices at levels last seen during the 2008 economic meltdown. The demand-supply imbalance will continue for at least a couple of quarters but radical production cutbacks are likely as current prices are not sustainable. These are testing times but we remain sanguine given our low debt levels and fully integrated business model.
