Whereas, the earnings per share of the company exhibited a decline of 4.37% YoY from Rs 15.09 to Rs 14.43.

The increase in profitability is attributed to higher topline which grew by 15.24% YoY.

Moreover, weak demand during COVID-19 lockdown and weak retail prices along with higher distribution expense in the backdrop of higher share of exports kept the company’s profits in check.  

The Gross Margins of the company increased to 24% as against 23% registered last year. Accordingly, Gross profits of the company jumped to Rs1.8 billion in comparison to Rs1.4 billion last year.

Finance charges shrunk by 18.83% YoY possibly due to early repayment of long-term financing made by the Company during the year.

According to the report by BIPL Securities, along with the result the Company also announced Board’s approval of enhancing the capacity of its earlier announced Solar Power Plant of 7MW to 20MW.
