WHY IT MATTERS
GE T&D posted losses consecutively since the September quarter of 2019 before swinging to a profit in the first quarter of last year. The company reported profits in the last three quarters as its order book slowly picked up after the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, with a limited order book on hand, execution continued to be a challenge for the company due to supply chain disruptions and commodity inflation, analysts at Antique Stock Broking said.
