Grasim: Spurred by sponge iron...

Jan 22, 2004

Aided by higher international scrap prices and a noteworthy growth in sales volume of the VSF division, Grasim, the diversified major, has been able to post a near 15% YoY growth in its topline for the third quarter ending December 2003. Despite pressure on raw material costs, the bottomline of the company has registered a significant 23% growth during the same period.
