The Board of Directors of Voltas Limited, the global air conditioning and engineering services provider of the Tata Group, today announced the Consolidated Financial Results (including the Consolidated Segment Report) for the quarter ended 30th June, 2020.
The Group's operations and financial results for the quarter ended 30th June, 2020 have been impacted due to outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic and consequent lockdown. Nevertheless, the business activities were resumed gradually based on the relaxations and directives issued by various Government as well as Local Authorities in India and other countries where the Group has business operations, albeit constraints of workforce and availability of project sites. The results of the current quarter are therefore not strictly comparable to the respective previous quarters.
The Group has conducted an assessment of the possible impact of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic on its operations, liquidity position and recoverability of its asset balances as at 30th June, 2020 based on the internal and external information. The Management will continue to monitor any material changes arising due to the impact of this pandemic on the financial and operational performance and take necessary measures to address the situation.
