Asian Paints: A mixed bag

May 12, 2004

Asian paints, the largest paint company in India, has declared good results for last quarter as well as for the year ended FY04. The topline of the company grew by 11% during the year but due to extraordinary adjustments and squeezed margins at the operating level, the bottomline growth remained subdued (up by 4%).
