The company also absorbed a loss of Rs. 6.54 crore during the period against a gain of Rs. 41.54 crore during CPLY on account of foreign exchange fluctuations.

The unaudited financial results of SRF were taken on record by SRF’s Board in a meeting held.

In meeting, the Board also approved an interim dividend at the rate of 30 per cent amounting to Rs. 3 per share. Reflecting on the financial performance of the company, Mr. Ashish Bharat Ram, Managing Director, SRF Limited, commented: “In a weak economic environment, the company has managed to do well. Operations across the board performed better than expectations. Having said that the economic conditions remain extremely challenging with low visibility. ”
