For detailed analysis of the performance, including industry overview, changes and outlook, please refer to the Management's Discussion and Analysis Report provided in Annexure – A, forming part of this Report.

3. COVID-19:

Your Company has been responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by looking after its entire eco-system of employees, customers and suppliers, with focus on health awareness and safety measures. As a responsible corporate citizen, your Company has always maintained strict adherence to the direction/ guidelines of central, state and local authorities.

In accordance with the order of Ministry of Home Affairs' for national lockdown from March 25, 2020, operations across plants, project sites and offices were closed. Your Company will resume operations as may be permitted by various governing authorities. While your Company has made every effort to swiftly adapt to the new norm, the closures will likely have an impact on its performance which can only be gauged in the quarter ending June 30, 2020.

4. Dividend:

This being the first year of business operation and consequent to the demerger of Power Grids Business, your Directors have not recommended any dividend for the period ended December 31, 2019.

5. Scheme of Arrangement:

A Scheme of Arrangement ("Scheme") was entered into between (i) ABB India Limited ("INABB"/ "Transferor") (a subsidiary of your Company's Promoter, ABB Asea Brown Boveri Ltd) and (ii) your Company ("Company"/"Transferee") and their respective shareholders and creditors, pursuant to the provisions of Section 230 to 232 and other applicable provisions of the Companies Act, 2013, which provided for inter alia the Demerger of the Power Grids Business of INABB ("Demerged Undertaking") and the consequent issuance of equity shares by the Company to the shareholders of INABB as per the Share Entitlement Ratio.

The Scheme was approved by your Board of Directors pursuant to its resolution dated March 5, 2019 and the Board of Directors of INABB pursuant to its resolution dated March 5, 2019. Pursuant to an order dated June 27, 2019, passed by the National Company Law Tribunal, Bengaluru Bench, ("NCLT"), meetings of the equity shareholders and the creditors of INABB were convened. The equity shareholders and the creditors of INABB approved the Scheme at court convened meetings, each held on August 9, 2019. The NCLT approved the Scheme on November 27, 2019. The Appointed Date of the Scheme was April 1, 2019 and the Effective Date was December 1, 2019.

The Scheme provided for the transfer by way of a demerger of the Demerged Undertaking and the consequent issue of equity shares by the Company to the shareholders of INABB in accordance with the Share Entitlement Ratio, and various other matters consequential or integrally connected therewith, including the re-organisation of the share capital of the Transferee, pursuant to Sections 230 to 232 of the Companies Act, 2013, the SEBI circulars and in compliance with the Income Tax Act, 1961

6. Board of Directors' response to observations, qualifications and adverse remarks in Auditor's Report

The Statutory Auditors ("Auditors") have qualified their opinion in relation to the matters specified in Notes 37 of the Financial Statements for the period ended December 31, 2019 ("Statements").

The Board's responses to the qualifications and other observations or adverse remarks are as follows.

a. Qualified Opinion: We have audited the financial statements of ABB Power Products and Systems India Limited ("the Company"), which comprise the balance sheet as at 31 December 2019, and the statement of profit and loss (including other comprehensive income), statement of changes in equity and statement of cash flows for the period from February 19, 2019 (date of incorporation) to December 31, 2019 ("the period"), and notes to the financial statements, including a summary of the significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the effects of the matter described in the Basis for Qualified Opinion section of our report, the aforesaid financial statements give the information required by the Companies Act, 2013 ("Act") in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, of the state of affairs of the Company as at December 31, 2019, and its profit and other comprehensive income, changes in equity and its cash flows for the period.

b. Basis for Qualified Opinion: We draw attention to Note 37 to the financial statements regarding the Scheme of Arrangement (‘Scheme') for demerger of the power grid business of ABB India Limited with the Company. The scheme of arrangement ("Scheme") as envisaged and entered into between (i) ABB India Limited ("INABB"/ "Transferor") and (ii) the Company ("Company"/ "Transferee") and their respective shareholders and creditors, pursuant to the provisions of Section 230 to 232 and other applicable provisions of the Companies Act, 2013, which provided for inter alia the Demerger of the Power Grids Business of INABB ("Demerged Undertaking"), with an appointed date of April 1, 2019, has been approved by the National Company Law Tribunal (‘NCLT') vide its order dated November 27, 2019 and a certified copy has been filed by the Company with the Registrar of Companies, Bangalore, on December 1, 2019.

As per the applicable accounting standard Ind AS 103, since this demerger is a common control business combination, the financial information necessitates restatement by the transferee at carrying amounts not from the appointed date but from the beginning of the preceding period in the financial statements which happens to be the date of incorporation i.e. February 19, 2019. Consequentially, the Company is required as per Ind AS 103 to give effect to the business combination from February 19, 2019 (date of its incorporation). However, the Company has recognized the impact of the business combination only from April 1, 2019 (i.e. the appointed date specified in the scheme). Accordingly, we are unable to comment on the resultant impact on the Company's statement of profit and loss (including other comprehensive income), statement of changes in equity and statement of cash flows for the period from February 19, 2019 to March 31, 2019. However, there is no impact of the same on the Company's balance sheet as at December 31, 2019.

c. Board's response to qualification in Auditor's Report: The Statutory Auditors ("Auditors") have qualified their opinion in relation to the matters specified in Notes 37 of the Financial Statements for the period ended December 31, 2019 ("Statements"). The Board's responses to the qualifications are as follows.

The management has taken note of the basis for qualified opinion of the Auditors and believes that due to incoherence between the appointed date i.e., April 1, 2019 and date of incorporation i.e. February 19, 2019 and auditors opinion on Ind AS 103 such a one off situation has arisen. Further, in addition to what has been stated in Note 37 of the Statements, we wish to state that in anticipation of reorganisation of ABB India Limited's business by way of said Scheme, the Company was incorporated. Such date of incorporation is not in control of the Company. The Registrar of Companies issued the certificate of incorporation on February 19, 2019. The management confirms that, during the period between February 19, 2019 and March 31, 2019, no active business was undertaken other than the initial paid up share capital. In light of the above, there is no impact on the financial statements of the Company as at December 31, 2019 as affirmed by the Auditors.

7. Change in the financial year:

Your Company was incorporated on February 19, 2019 with first financial year commencing on February 19, 2019 and ending on March 31, 2020. Your Company subsequently made an application to the Regional Director, South East Region, Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Hyderabad on November 5, 2019 to change your Company's first financial year from February 19, 2019 to December 31, 2019.

Management discussion and analysis

Industry structure and developments

Economic and market overview

2019 began on a hopeful note. With the new central government being elected on an even greater majority than in 2014, expectations were high of a policy that would boost the country's growth momentum. The triple balance sheet problem involving banks, corporates and non-bank financial intermediaries, triggered by the NBFC defaults in 2018, kept credit conditions tight.

Despite several rounds of monetary policy easing by the Reserve Bank of India and stimulus measures from the Government, private investment and core sector output failed to pick up. With investment low, job creation and jobs-driven consumption recovery remained missing. By September, stagnation in the manufacturing sector worsened due to weak spending and outlay. All three major industrial sectors - mining, manufacturing and electricity shrank. Industrial output too remained weaker-than-expected.

An additional headwind for India was weaker global demand. The Indian Rupee remained battered due to persistent weakness in the domestic economy, financial sector woes, volatility in oil prices, as well as trade tensions between the U.S. and China, pushing investors to seek shelter in U.S. assets. Thus, the currency could do little for exports. Global trade turbulence and various protectionist measures taken by countries took a toll on performance.

The year, however, closed with things to look forward to. December's manufacturing PMI rose to 52.7 from 51.2 in November, showing an uptick in consumer demand and exports1. The U.S. and China also agreed on a partial trade deal, while domestically the Government provided a thrust for infrastructure projects and measures to usher credit liquidity in the system.

Power sector overview

Over the past decade, energy and emission intensities as part of the country's gross domestic product have decreased by more than 20 percent2. By December 2019, the country had deployed a total of 84 gigawatt (GW) of grid-connected renewable electricity capacity, while total generating capacity reached 366 GW.

The Union Budget 2019-20 opened doors to several potential opportunities for the power sector. It announced the allocation of INR 100 lakh crore for infrastructure over the next five years3. It also showed commitment to creating a blueprint for gas and water grids as well as regional airports. To facilitate its 24/7 power for all by 2022, it also promised the roll out of a new tariff policy for the power sector alongside schemes to reduce losses of distribution companies (discoms), albeit with more stringent caveats. For attracting investment for manufacturing and to ensure clean energy over time, it also allocated INR 10,000 crore for the faster adoption of electric vehicles. The decision to float a new public sector discom, with pan-India presence, was also realized.

Yet, for most of 2019 the power sector remained under pressure due to power purchase agreement re-negotiations, demand reduction and mounting dues from discoms to the generating companies. Electricity consumption growth slowed causing electricity generation, including from renewables, to stay in second gear. Conventional generation was down 19 percent in October while overall generation fell 1 percent year-on-year in the fourth quarter. The cumulative year-to-date production (April-December) from on-grid coal-fired power generation was also down 25 billion units in absolute terms4. The rising cost of coal and rail transportation further dampened investor interest in the thermal sector, having them to continue to pivot toward renewable energy – the lowest cost source of new power generation. State-center policy issues such as the perplexity of implementing ‘Make-in-India' also led to the cancellation of more than 4.5 GW of tenders and the under subscription of another 6 GW of auctions due to scarce investor interest4.

With such a backdrop, ABB Power Grids retained its focus on solid fundamentals to build on existing opportunities and make headway in carefully chosen high-growth segments such as grid automation and rail. Many of these will drive business growth in the years ahead. Also central to our vision are the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, notably Goal 7 for affordable and clean energy.

4 Central Electricity Authority

Over the coming decade, technology developments and economic advantages strongly intertwine with Government's ambition to put India in a position to transform its electricity sector. The push on adoption of advanced digital technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence to curb emissions and improve efficiency, including the digital solutions pioneered by our Company, is projected to continue.

ABB Power Products and Systems India Limited has built a compelling portfolio of products and solutions that enable increased use of clean energy sources across the focus sectors of utilities, industries, transportation and infrastructure to drive business growth and will continue to focus on innovation to bring value to our stakeholders. We are confident that we have the expertise and footprint to build on the momentum and power ahead.

Business overview

In 2019, Power Grids demerged from ABB India Limited and became a standalone legal entity - ABB Power Products and Systems India Limited. We began our march to a new future backed by the legacy accorded to us by our former patron. With a history of over 130 years, ABB has a proven track record with worldwide installed base, lifecycle support services and domain expertise. It is known for its commitment to continuous innovation and development of power technologies. Hence, although young, we are backed with a significant sectoral experience.

The management of ABB Power Products and Systems India Limited has historically been associated with the Power Girds business in various roles and brings on board extensive business experience. Equipped with a thorough understanding of industry trends, demands and market changes, we are confident of our ability to adapt and diversify our operating capabilities and take advantage of market opportunities. We are poised to innovate and create value in the power technologies space and be the partner-of-choice for enabling a stronger, smarter and greener grid.

As of date, we have five manufacturing locations spread across Gujarat and Karnataka, a well-entrenched network of 17 sales offices and established customer relationships. We operate across four business lines, namely, (i) grid automation, (ii) grid integration, (iii) high-voltage products and (iv) transformers, and provide product, system, software and service solutions across the entire power value chain. Our offerings are designed to meet the growing demand for electricity with minimum environmental impact. We support utility, industry and transport and infrastructure customers to plan, build, operate and maintain their power infrastructure.

Segment and product-wise reporting

We are engaged in the business relating to products, projects and services for electricity transmission and related activities. Accordingly, the Company's activities and business is reviewed regularly by the chief operating decision maker from an overall business perspective, rather than reviewing its products/services as individual standalone components. Thus, we have only one operating segment, and have no reportable segment in accordance with Ind AS- 108 ‘Operating Segments'. ABB Asea Brown Boveri Limited hold 10 percent or more shares in the Company. The details of transactions with promoter/ promoter group holding 10 percent or more shares have been disclosed in the accompanying financial statements.

Our strategy

We aim to solidify our presence in the power sector and have been putting immense effort in strengthening its operations. In accordance with our global strategy, we have prioritized eight high-growth segments, namely, grid automation, FACTS, rail, HVDC, data centers, software, EV infrastructure and microgrids to drive future growth. We are well-positioned against our competitors to take advantage and have a leading position in these attractive markets.

Our strategy is built upon three strategic pillars. First, to become a growth engine through developing a world-class front-end team and a customer-centric mindset. Second, to sharpen our winning portfolio and business models by competitiveness and maximized customer value. And third, to drive for world-class execution by ensuring industry-leading quality and operational performance. These pillars are anchored to a foundation of people and innovation. While hiring top talent and building people capabilities for large projects is a challenge across the power industry, we are sure of our strengths and are empowered by our agile structure and expected overall market growth.

Our continued focus on R&D positions us well to deliver value to our customers even in times of transformation. We are constantly working on short-term evolutionary innovations to existing products and services, as well as long-term innovations crucial for maintaining and strengthening our position as a leader in innovation and for supporting future growth. To ensure we are flexible and result-driven, our global research centers and business units are integrated with leading universities in India and abroad, and with our other external partners, in a networked environment.

Operational overview

At a time when disruptive technological changes and various policy initiatives are changing the way customers do business, we have continued to prepare ourself and create value for our stakeholders through best-in-class manufacturing facilities and global technology portfolio. Further, our internal transformational initiatives have helped us build systematic cadence, agility and disciplined performance to transform growth, portfolio and execution. Our foundation of innovation and people strategy have helped us stay on track.

At the close of the year, we set up our new headquarters in Bengaluru and launched ourselves as a standalone legal entity in the power domain. We also established a world-class digital experience center, PowerDEC, which demonstrates the next level of enterprise performance for enhanced grid stability, improved asset performance and efficient operational management.

As part of our investment in strategic research and development programs, we inaugurated a High-Voltage Products Innovation Center in Vadodara, accredited with the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration (NABL). The center will reduce the Company's dependence on external bodies and support the technology and R&D teams in testing their inventions in real-time, enabling faster go-to-market.

At our Peenya facility we added one shop floor for utility communication. To prepare ourselves to smartly handle future demand from urbanization, we also set up a factory for Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) traction transformer at Savli and expanded the capacity of our power transformers facility in Maneja.

We are committed to maintaining state-of-the-art test facilities and NABL-accredited high voltage, mechanical endurance labs for testing our manufactured products to ensure their long-lasting site performance. We are equipped with full-time training facilities encompassing our complete range of products, systems and communication and have a rigorous year-long training calendar. Our factories are in the process of implementing the LEAN Lighthouse program and continue to work on LEAN principles to reduce waste and increase recycling.

At the close of 2019, ABB Power Products and Systems India Limited was in the process of being certified under ISO 14001 Environment Management Systems and ISO 45001 Safety Management System. We aim to be recognized for our customer focus and high standards in the industry. We plan on achieving it by enhancing the quality of our technology applications and training our channel partners on the highest operational benchmarks. We have rolled out company-wide LEAN and Six Sigma (L6S) initiatives and, have until date trained 327 Yellow Belts, 6 Green Belts and 1 Black Belt.

ISO 9001 – 2015 certified, we have established quality management system with a clear policy objective and focus on customers, factory processes and suppliers. Regular TLC audits by the product technology lead centers for control and improvement in process and product manufacturing across the value chain are carried out.

We have set-up a vendor quality assurance function, followed by regular audits to monitor and improve supplier performance on quality, delivery and sustainability. Statistical process control across suppliers and inspection using modern measuring instruments, such as helium leak testing M/c, 3D CMM are in place for improving incoming component quality. We also have in-process quality control tests and skill matrix checks for the flawless production of products.

With close to 100 dedicated engineers, our technology centers focus on continuous product innovation, optimization and improvement using various state-of-the-art technical software. The availability of world-class PowerTEC training center to give customers hands-on training in handling the Company's products also lead to a further improvement in product lifecycle.

Performance during the reporting period

Keeping pace with the evolving markets, we had many firsts in the period under review. We booked our first cybersecurity order from Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL), Roorkee. City and state utilities continued their digital transition and we booked orders for remote terminal units for smart cities and protection, control and measurement units of Relion for digital substations. Pilots were initiated for digitalizing transformers using our CoreTec and Core Sense offering with a leading renewable player. To ensure reliable rural electrification under the Government's rural electrification program for Deendayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana and Integrated Power Development Scheme, we delivered COMBIFLEX solutions through our partners. We received multiple orders toward urban mobility including for the supply of over 80 trackside transformers for railway electrification and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) solutions and dry-type distribution transformers for various metro projects across India.

With space crunch in urban environments increasingly becoming an issue, we also received orders for a 132 kilovolt (kV) Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) substation from a state utility, a 400 kV GIS and transformers order for a power plant in eastern India, a 400 kV GIS for a thermal power plant in a southern state, and a 420 kV GIS for Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited TANGEDCO Udangudi STPP project, and many others.

Major orders successfully commissioned/supplied during the period under review include:

• Phasor measurement units to industrial and renewable sectors for substation-wide area measurement projects.

• One of India's first next-generation fiber-optic transmission equipment, based on multi-protocol label switching, for 1,400-kilometer (km) oil and gas pipelines for Pipeline Infrastructure Limited.

• Network Manager SCADA upgrade order for Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL).

• Automation, control and SCADA order for Pune Metro.

• Automation and control order for Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor.

Growth in industries such as steel, cement and automobiles, however, continued to weaken. Solar capacity addition in the country didn't happen as expected and fewer in the domain were awarded in 2019 than the year before. Our e-balance of system projects were further hampered by the ambiguity in Goods and Services Tax on solar.

Our track record of excellence and on-time delivery ensured we remained the preferred suppliers for our existing customers. To name a few, we received repeat orders from PGCIL for software-as-a-service and power line carrier communication, and from National Thermal Power Corporation Limited (NTPC) for protection and integrated energy management solution.

Multiple interest rate cuts by the Reserve Bank of India did little to boost liquidity in the market. Credit conditions remained tight. Initiatives like UDAY 1.0 fell short of bringing fresh investments in the power sector. In this environment, our Company continued its credible performance through relentless execution and business-led collaboration. We generated revenue of INR 3,231 crores while our net profit was more than INR 165 crores.

Our current ratio stood at 1.07 and interest coverage ratio at 10.91, showing strength in our balance sheet and our ability to maximize capital. Our debtor turnover ratio was 2.02, indicating our robust collection processes. However, we are also discussing potential repayment mechanisms to clear historical overdues.

Inventory turnover stood at 6.71 percent. Our operating EBITA was 9.0 percent, while net profit margin stood at 5.1 percent.

In 2019, the interest cost borne by us was INR 26.4 crore. As on December 31, we had a net cash balance of INR 188 crore. In terms of foreign currency exposure – for imports and exports – we continued to conservatively hedge at the point of commitment to protect the contract margins.

Risk management, risks and concerns

Risk is inherent in business. ABB Power Grids is well-supported by robust risk management and governance mechanisms.

We have a risk management charter and policy, which provides an overarching framework for risk management (RM).

The key elements of our Company's framework have been captured in the RM policy that details the process for identifying, escalating, prioritizing, mitigating and monitoring key risk events and action plans. The assessment of risks covers areas of strategy, technology, finance, operations and systems, legal & regulatory and human resources risks. There are appropriate assurance and monitoring mechanisms in place to monitor the effectiveness of our RM framework, including the mitigation plans identified by management for key risks. We undertake risk management exercises to identify and expand our knowledge of potential risks in a changing market and handle them.

Our existing framework provides for risk reviews at various levels based on the organizational structure matrix. Periodic assessment of risks, potential impact relating to business growth, profitability, talent engagement, and market position are conducted. Response to key operational risks, based on inputs received from the internal and external assessment, internal and performance review among others are done on a regular basis.

Our aim is to minimize adverse impacts, leverage market opportunities effectively and efficiently, and enhance our business competitiveness.

Internal control systems and their adequacy

ABB Power Grids has robust internal financial control systems that are designed to ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, facilitate optimum utilization of resources, protect company assets and stakeholders' interests. We are continuously working on making these systems more efficient and reliable to ensure completeness of accounting records and timely preparation of financial statements and management information.

We have a holistic Internal Control (IC) framework comprising Country Management Committee, Group Directives and Instructions, Local Management Instructions, Process and Entity-Level Controls, Enterprise Risk Management, Local Direct Management Testing Programs, and a strong emphasis on integrity and ethics as part of our work culture. An independent service provider, having expertise in the field, has performed current year's Internal Financial Control effectiveness testing. We have an efficient Statutory & Legal Compliance System in place.

We also have a well-functioning whistle-blower policy to report any misdoing. Our IC framework has been aligned with one of the most matured IC frameworks – COSO 1992 and transitioned to COSO 2013. The current framework is also in line with the Internal Finance Control (IFC) requirement of The Companies Act, 2013.


The power grids market is driven by an increasing adoption of renewable energy, rising demand in emerging countries with minimum environmental impact, the expansion of distributed power sources such as electric vehicles and storage batteries, deregulation of the electric power sector in countries and regions, and advances in electric power system reform.

Further, digitalization in power assets, systems and processes is creating the environment of energy internet with real-time integrated grid control system and asset performance management with predictive maintenance technologies. Our Company is continuously developing new features, products and solutions based on core power technologies to support this evolution.

As per the National Electricity Plan II, 2019, issued by the Ministry of Power, Government of India ("Electricity Plan"), installed generation capacity in India will increase from around 350 GW currently to 484 GW at the end of 2021-2022. Gas-insulated switchgear, hybrid switchgear, digital substations and reactive power compensation are the technologies of choice to ensure smooth and trouble-free operation of power systems. Growth in demand and addition of grid-connected solar power are expected to lead to investments in associated transmission equipment.

Industry growth being largely muted in 2019, we are looking to play an active role in railway electrification with 27,000 kilometres yet to be electrified by 2023, in regional transport ventures such as NCRTC (Delhi – Meerut) and high-speed rail (Ahmedabad – Mumbai), and in metro projects that are either under execution or in a planning. Data centers hold vast untapped potential for us in India. With the Government expected to roll out a data center policy soon, we will likely see exponential growth and areas to pitch our products and services for segment augmentation and business growth. We are also awaiting further developments in the e-mobility space which is at a nascent stage in the country right now. With many cities coming up with a Bus Rapid Transit System, there is an opportunity area which can go electric. At the get-go, we are well-placed to support the segment with our award-winning innovative flash charging system -TOSA.

As leaders in HVDC technology, we are currently executing the Raigarh-Pugalur HVDC project and see opportunities for upgrades of maturing HVDC stations in the coming years. We are also seeing investments starting to happen toward port upgradation i.e., deployment of smart port infrastructure and shore-to-ship power systems. This is an encouraging development and we are well-positioned to take advantage of it with our offerings.

The Government's Power-for-All scheme to achieve universal access to electricity by the early 2020s will be a big demand generator. But in that context, the Government's focus should be primarily on improving access of energy to households at affordable rates – a theme central to the policy design. There are multiple policy and fiscal interventions needed; programs like UDAY need monitoring and proactive corrections to be effective. A move to pre-paid smart meters, as outlined in Budget 2020-21, will be a step toward discoms cutting distribution losses and setting the stage for separating the carriage and content operations. Smart meters minimize human intervention in metering, billing and collection, and help reduce theft by identifying loss pockets.

Several renewable technologies such as offshore wind, battery storage, charging infrastructure for electric vehicles and the like are still to take off in a big way. The higher technology cost is one of the biggest hurdles for mass adoption. The Government is considering schemes to remove those hurdles. Fiscal support in the form of viability gap funding for each emerging technology is under consideration. It is worthwhile to mention that the ecosystem for such technologies (primarily components) will initially be imported. Thus import duty and GST on key components need to be initially pegged at minimal tax slabs.

Opportunities and threats

For 2020, unexpected turn of events has impacted our market outlook. While various macro parameters had been putting a downward pressure on economic growth, the Coronavirus outbreak has pushed many projects and orders to the backseat. However, Government spending in infrastructure and efforts to boost credit liquidity will provide a mild thrust for industry capex. As normalcy is restored, renewables and rail will continue to be areas of robust growth, while the data center and e-mobility markets will unleash opportunities for new business models and overall sector growth. More clarity and policy impetus from the Government will help to speed up investments. However, we expect prices to remain under pressure due to competition and the desire of Government for a lower price discovery in rail and solar projects.

In all this, we are confident that we have the expertise and footprint to build on the momentum and power ahead.
