In this quarter, CEAT’s overall sales volume grew by over 13% on a YoY basis.

“We continued to maintain our leverage ratios at healthy levels. Our debt equity ratio continues to remain at 0.3x and debt to EBITDA at 1.0x. CEAT’s Long term credit rating has been upgraded by CARE Ratings to ‘AA (Double A)’ from ‘AA- (Double A minus)’.
