L&T falls on write-off media report

Tags: L&T, Companies
Shares in Larsen & Toubro Ltd fell as much as 3.5 percent after a business daily newspaper reported India's biggest engineering firm, was going to trim its Rs 1.7 trillion order book by about 10 percent, without specifying how it got to the estimates.

"We have five projects where we feel that the developers have not been able to resolve issues with the government. We feel it is prudent to remove these orders from the order book since things have not moved for two years or more," L&T's director and the head of construction and infrastructure unit, SN Subrahmanyan, told the paper.

A company spokesman declined to comment on the size of any potential write-off, but said L&T periodically assesses the health of its order book.
