The operating profit has increased 46% from Rs. 88 Cr to Rs.129 Cr on a YoY basis. In the same period, operating profit margin has improved 200 basis points from 8.32% to 10.3%, despite rise in imported raw material prices.
Net profit has substantially reduced to Rs. 5.49 Cr (Q2 FY14) as against Rs. 27.95 Cr (Q2 FY13) on account of rise in interest cost and foreign exchange and derivative losses.
