As a net debt-free company, Ami Organics is well-positioned to raise funds through debt if necessary. Mr. Patel expressed confidence in the company's ability to maintain its growth rate of 20-25% in the foreseeable future. He emphasized that this sustainable growth is the result of factors such as product innovation, efficient operations, and a strong customer base.
