3M India’s Q4 Report: Surge in Profit and Share Prices

3M India saw a 27% increase in quarterly profit on Tuesday, driven by robust demand in its healthcare, transportation, and electronics sectors.

Growing Healthcare Needs

With a rise in demand for both private and commercial vehicles, the company benefited, seeing a nearly 4% revenue growth to 4.51 billion rupees from this segment.

Additionally, 3M India announced a dividend of 160 rupees per share along with a special dividend of 525 rupees per share.

The U.S.-based parent company, 3M Co, also reported better-than-expected profits in the March quarter, driven by higher sales in its electronics division.
