This was a quarter where the lag effect of demonetization and troughing corporate lending met with the anticipation of Goods and Services Tax (GST). Continued close collaboration led to deeper insights of customer operations in a dynamic environment. This ensured revenue growth. Lean management, relentless pursuit of cash over revenue, and similar initiatives as part of operationalexcellence yielded savings and superior cash position.

Orders grew 13% to Rs 2301 crore in Q2 June 2017 over Q2 June 2016 reflecting company's organic growth strategy. Large orders remained muted as decisions on government initiatives and private investments were stalled in anticipation of upcoming tax restructure.

Base orders were the key contributor with industry turning to improving operational efficiencies through technology and digital upgrades including robotics automation. ABB strengthened its own digital asset health management offering to support the transformation of the Indian industry – with the launch of its remote drives service center. Export orders continued the uptrend in the year with a focus on power networks and industrial efficiency.

ABB is a pioneering technology leader in electrification products, robotics and motion, industrial automation and power grids, serving customers in utilities, industry and transport & infrastructure globally. ABB Group holds 75% stake in ABB India as per the shareholding as on 31 March 2017.
