We will continue to focus on new product launches and brand development in line with our objectives. In Lighting, we launched an ‘Anti-bacterial bulb’, based on a unique and meaningful consumer proposition, which has been very well received in the market. Investments in B2B Lighting are beginning to show results with a healthy order pipeline. Our cost reduction program continues to deliver encouraging results driving bottom line faster than topline.”
