SRF Limited, a multi-business entity engaged in the manufacture of chemical based industrial intermediates, posted a net profit after tax (PAT) of Rs. 111 crore for the quarter ended December 2011 recording a 35% decrease over the corresponding period last year (CPLY).

However, the Profit before Interest, Depreciation, Exchange Currency Fluctuations and Tax decreased by only 6% from Rs. 292 crore to Rs. 275 crore. The Exchange Currency Fluctuation alone had a negative impact of Rs. 51 crore to the company during the quarter. The Company's revenue during October-December' 11 improved by 12% to Rs. 949 crore as against Rs. 844 crore during CPLY. The unaudited financial results of SRF were approved by SRF's Board in a meeting. The Board also approved an interim dividend at the rate of 70% amounting to Rs.7 per share.

Reflecting on the financial performance of the company, Mr. Ashish Bharat Ram, Managing Director, SRF Limited, commented: “The last four months have been extremely difficult for the businesses. The economic environment remains volatile and uncertain. While the Chemicals Business performed well, the Technical Textiles and Packaging Films businesses have gone through a tough period.”

The segment revenue of Chemicals & Polymers Business (CPB) improved by 84% at Rs. 370 crore over Rs. 201 crore during the CPLY while the operating profit grew by 201% to Rs. 220 crore over Rs. 73 crore in the CPLY. In the Technical Textiles Business, while the segment revenue improved by 16% to Rs. 427 crore, the operating profit decreased by 51% to Rs. 20 crore during the period. The segment revenue of the Packaging Films Business (PFB) declined by 44% to Rs. 157 crore. Notwithstanding the poor demand – supply scenario, PFB incurred an operating loss of Rs. 4 crore only.

9M Financials
The company's revenue at Rs. 2702 crore achieved a growth of 22% over Rs. 2211 crore recorded during the same period last year. The company's PBT at Rs. 437 crore decreased by 11% during the first 9M over CPLY.
