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.
