“FY22 has been a challenging year for the industry in the face of adverse external environment with headwinds around the availability and price for raw materials, solvents, catalysts, uncertainties arising out of Ukraine-Russia conflict as well as re-emergence of Covid cases in China,’’ Krishna Prasad Chigurupati, Chairman & Managing Director, Granules India, said in a release on Wednesday.

According to him, the global supply chain and logistics continue to remain under duress. “While we strive for continued improvement in our financial performance in the short term, we are working on long term strategy for making ourselves self-sustainable and overcoming most of the challenges that we are facing now,’’ he added.

The board had recommended a final dividend of 75 paise per equity share of ₹1 each in addition to interim dividend of 75 paise per equity share of ₹1 each paid during the year.
