Titan said it recorded a strong revenue growth of 60% for the overall fourth quarter on a low base in March 2020 as the impact of the pandemic on consumer sentiment seemed to fade away in the early part of Q4.

Revenue grew by more than 36% in the comparable January & February months, Titan said in a regulatory filing on Wednesday.
