However, the economy gained momentum with decline in Covid cases in the months of February and March.
Despite the headwinds, your company has registered 70% consolidated growth in revenues for the financial year 2021-22. With the economy regaining normalcy, strong spikes in demand has been witnessed for our products.
During the year, your company laid down plans for installation of greenfield projects at Wada and Ahmedabad.
The facilities will have a combined capacity of 8,00,000 cbm p.a. With these new additions, your Company’s total capacities will increase to 13,75,000 cbm p.a. making us the leader in this industry.
We believe that, with this expansion we will be able to cater to the growing demand for this product and enhance our market share.
Our grit and determination remains focused towards implementing various cost effective measures and achieve operational excellence.
We intend to putforth a strong hold over our products and further penetrate into untapped markets across the western regions.
Mr. Saboo further stated, the recent macro-economic conditions have led to soaring of input costs of key raw materials including cement, fuel costs and logistics.
The company has put in place processes and systems to monitor these costs regularly and thereby reducing the impact on our margins.
Our performance this quarter reflects this momentum with strong revenue and EBITDA growth. This has been led by rigorous efforts in brand premiumization and a superior product portfolio.
We further look to expand our dealer networks in the real estate and construction segment. With strong business fundamentals and domestic opportunity, we remain optimistic as we leverage our strengths to achieve higher growth and create greater shareholder value.”
