"Pricol has been the talk of the town in the last few months due to the attempted hostile takeover by Minda who bought roughly 1.38 crore shares from a clutch of 11 institutional investors.
On the business front, the company derives more than 60 per cent of its revenue from the two-wheeler and more than 50 per cent from the instrument cluster which is used in two-wheelers.
The company is currently ongoing capex of Rs 600 crores in a phased manner and targets to achieve Rs 4000 crores of revenue in FY2025 i.e a doubling of its FY23 sales.
