The increase in net earnings can be attributed to higher sales revenue resulting from increase in average retention prices of Urea and DAP.

The company’s earnings are however expected to be hit by increase in finance costs resulting from increase in policy rate.

Moreover, the earnings might be dragged further down lest the company books a tax reversal due to fixation of corporate tax rate at 29%.
