Among the buzzing stocks today is Amara Raja Batteries.

Amara Raja Batteries (ARBL) on 14 June announced the expansion of its lead-acid batteries business and the establishment of a new energy strategic business unit encompassing lithium cell and battery pack, EV chargers and energy storage systems.

"The company is well poised to build on its strengths and create multiple new growth engines in new energy space," said Vice Chairman Jayadev Galla.

Mr Jayadev Galla is poised to become the new Chairman as Founder Chairman Ramachandra Galla has decided not to seek reappointment after 36 years at the helm.

The company's board of directors also inducted gen-next leaders Harshavardhana Gourineni and Vikramaditya Gourineni as Executive Directors to actively drive the transition to the 'Energy & Mobility' initiative.

S Vijayanand, with his proven track record of performance, will take charge as President (New Energy).

Jayadev Galla said the board unanimously believes new energy will provide substantial thrust over the coming decade. However, there remains a strong conviction on the long-term potential of the lead-acid batteries business.

The vital role played by lead-acid technology across a variety of applications provide significant growth opportunity in both the domestic and international markets. On the other hand, the emergence of lithium as an alternative energy storage technology opens up new and exciting growth opportunities.

Here's what he said in a statement -

  • The ARBL board has decided to future-proof our business by repositioning ARBL as an energy and mobility player. The board believes that ARBL has to invest in a portfolio of businesses to maintain its technological and business leadership.

ARBL also plans to invest in a bouquet of products and services to accelerate its transformation to an energy and mobility solutions provider.

How this pans out remains to be seen. Meanwhile, stay tuned for more updates from this space.

At the time of writing, Amara Raja Batteries shares were trading up by 1.1% on the BSE.
