Commenting on the performance, Mr.Deepak C. Mehta, Chairman & Managing Director, said,
“We are pleased to have sustained our growth momentum in Q3 of this fiscal year with revenues increasing by 23% on a year on year basis. This was due to improved realisations in the domestic market on the back of healthy demand in the end user industries. Favourable shifts in product mix and benefits of operating leverage have propelled PAT higher by 55% yoy.
The turnaround of the Performance Products segment that reported over 50% growth in turnover is heartening. This is an outcome of careful planning and reorientation of focus towards customers and end user industries that are exhibiting steady growth and value the high quality and differentiation in
A development to note during the quarter was the commissioning of our Greenfield facility of Phenol and Acetone. I am delighted to share that we have already stabilised this mega plant and consistently achieved above 80% utilisation in a short span upon commissioning.
Through rigorous efforts undertaken towards seed marketing, creation of complementary supply chain infrastructure and logistics as well as selection of the right team, we have been able to report positive EBITDA and PBT in the first quarter of commissioning itself. I would like to congratulate the entire team at Deepak Phenolics for seamless planning and execution.
This is just the beginning and I am confident that the several exciting opportunities in downstream intermediates will assist us in further elevating our performance in times ahead”.
The roadmap going forward is encouraging and the Company is well placed to leverage the
opportunities present in the chemicals sector. Abundant availability of locally produced Phenol and Acetone will boost the production of downstream intermediates, which will further diversify the product applications and expand the overall market size in the country.
Established business segments are benefiting from the positive demand environment backed by firm realisations.
On the back of solid quarter on quarter growth performance in the last several quarters and with increasing market opportunities, Deepak Nitrite is expected to continue its growth
