Despite the disruption in operations due to the Covid-19 pandemic-related lockdown, Dixon Technologies has witnessed strong recovery in business post easing of Covid-19-related curbs as reflected in the 17 per cent year-on-year growth in revenues along with an improvement in the operating profitability for the quarter ended September 2020 (Q2FY21).

On Tuesday, the company informed the stock exchanges that rating agency ICRA had, on November 23, 2020, revised the long-term rating and reaffirmed the short term rating as well as rating assigned to commercial paper instrument of the company. The outlook was revised to ‘stable’ from ‘positive’.

“The rating upgrade takes into account robust performance of Dixon Technologies in the recent past, as well as the expected significant increase in its scale of operations with the receipt of approval of its subsidiary’s application under the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme by the Ministry of Electronics and Information and Technology (MeitY),” ICRA said in rating rationale.
The Stable outlook on the rating reflects ICRA’s expectation that the company will continue to report a healthy growth in its scale of operations, along with diversification in customer profile, product profile and supply chain, it said.
