SRF Limited, a leading Indian player in Technical Textiles, Refrigerant Gases and having operating interests in Packaging Films and Pharma Intermediates today announced its financial performance for the quarter ended 30th September 2006.
Commenting on the financial performance, Mr. Arun Bharat Ram, Chairman and Managing Director, SRF Limited, said: “The quarter was marked by strong cash flows generated from the transfer of Certified Emission Receipts (CERs). The revenues and profits improved significantly by 62% and 643% respectively in the second quarter compared to the same quarter last year. We continue to face pressure on realizations and margins in our businesses. Our focus will remain on cost efficiency and improving margins in our current businesses so that they revert back to providing better returns. However, our strategy on carbon credits has paid off. SRF has been able to carry out successful and remunerative deals on the carbon-trading front.”
PERFORMANCE OVERVIEW: Q2 FY2007 v/s. Q2 FY2006
Revenues increased by 62% to Rs.4751.2 million from Rs.2928.4 million. EBIDT was higher by 349% at Rs.1624.9 million from Rs.362.1 million, whereas PAT went up by 643% to Rs.892.2 million from Rs.120.1 million. EPS for the quarter was Rs.13.83 (non-annualized), while cash EPS for the quarter was Rs.16.94.
CDM PROJECT UPDATE
While the Company has realised around Rs.1488.2 million during the quarter from the transfer of Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) units, cash flows from carbon credits are expected to vary & may not recur uniformly from quarter to quarter.
