Highlights from Different Segments Combined (Yearly Basis)
Revenue from Operations grew from Rs377cr to Rs409cr in the Drum Closure Division. Profit Before Tax and Finance Costs increased by 35% from Rs94 crore to Rs127 crore after depreciation.
Revenue from Operations dropped from Rs525 crore to Rs448 crore in the Scaffolding Division. As a result, profit before tax and finance expenses declined to Rs36 crore after depreciation, owing to increases in steel, aluminium, zinc, and ocean freight prices during the period, as well as a slowdown in building activity due to the impact of Covid.
Management is optimistic that the impact of Covid-19 will be mitigated, and that we will be able to pass on the rise in raw material costs in the medium and long term. Because of the expected development in infrastructure and affordable housing construction demand in India following Covid, the management believes this segment has a bright future.
Textiles: Fabric Division revenue increased from Rs150 crore to Rs158 crore, while Yarn Division revenue decreased from Rs273 crore to Rs264 crore, owing to a challenging business environment in the textile sector and lower capacity utilisation in the Fabric Division, which the management hopes to improve in the future.
Despite the above-mentioned textile and retail sector crises, the Yarn Division’s Loss Before Tax and Finance Costs but after Depreciation decreased from Rs4.76cr to Rs0.57cr, while the Fabric Division’s Loss Before Tax and Finance Costs but after Depreciation decreased from Rs6.77cr to Rs5.93cr. The Yarn Division’s EBITDA climbed from Rs9.4 crore to Rs29.5 crore, while the Fabric Division’s EBITDA stayed same at Rs8 crore.
