An Indian factory damaged by violence this month was a new facility with limited production and so there will be limited financial impact, Taiwanese Apple Inc supplier Wistron Corp, which runs the plant, said late on Sunday.

Apple has placed Wistron on probation, saying on Saturday it would not award the Taiwanese contract manufacturer new business until it addressed the way workers were treated at its southern India plant.

In a statement to the Taiwan Stock Exchange, Wistron said its consistent policy was not to comment on its business relations with customers.

Wistron shares fell about 3% in early trade, underperforming the broader market.

The company has been cooperating with the local government investigation into what happened and "will cooperate with customers on carrying out the improvement and restoration of work plan", Wistron said.

"As the Narasapura factory is a new production line, at present its output is limited, and the initial estimate is that there is no major impact on the company's finances and business."

Apple said it will continue to monitor Wistron's progress on corrective action.
