- Topline grew in double digits during the quarter. However, margins were impacted due to high input cost and competitive intensity.
- The company continues to drive its objective of improving its margins and profitability by enriching its product mix and effective cost management.
- AkzoNobel continued its positive engagement with community programs. Recently, we launched a partnership with SOS Children’s Villages of India as part of a global partnership between AkzoNobel and SOS Children’s Villages International. The initiative is designed to use education and renovation to drive a positive impact on youth unemployment and aims to uplift the lives of young people under the care of SOS Children’s Villages.
