The net revenue of GHCL, India’s leading chemical and textile company, in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 is has increased marginally by 1 per cent to ₹757 crore as compared to ₹48 crore in the corresponding quarter ended June 30, 2017. EBIDTA for the reported period is posted at ₹152 crore compared to ₹167 crore in the corresponding quarter previous year.

While, its home textiles business revenue declined by 15 per cent to ₹265 crore in FY19 as compared to ₹311 crore in the corresponding quarter in FY18 primarily due to headwinds.  However, sequentially the revenue has grown by 21 per cent and EBITDA has grown by 43 per cent to ₹18 crore.

For the reported period, the company's net profit (PAT) was registered at ₹62 crore as against ₹ 76 crore (excluding onetime income tax credit of ₹82 crore) of the corresponding quarter in the previous year mainly due to textile performance impacted due to sectoral headwinds. The segment is however now growing sequentially and improvement is likely to continue in the coming quarters.

"We are confident of achieving our vision of +20% profit growth on a long term horizon creating value for our stakeholders. This quarter, we have been able to achieve a satisfactory performance which is in line with our expectations in both the business segments. Our PAT for the current quarter is ₹62 crore as compared to ₹76 crore of Q1FY18. This is primarily due to the impact of headwinds in Home Textiles, which has now started showing signs of improvement when compared to Q4FY18. In Soda Ash, despite Annual shutdown and M2M Forex Impact profitability has been maintained at Q1FY18 levels due to our operational efficiencies. Our outlook for FY19 is positive and we are on track with our expansion plans which are likely to be completed within the stipulated time and cost," RS Jalan, managing director, GHCL said. (RR)
