EBITDA margins increased 400 basis points to 28%.
According to GNFC, overall production and sales volume performance have improved, with the exception of product mix optimization (Make vs. Buy Decisions as well as Upstream vs. Downstream product choices depending on market conditions), which has resulted in increased margins.
However, despite rising input costs, the company’s margins remained protected, owing to the support of higher realisations on the output products front, led by chemicals, as well as serving a profitable product mix.
In the case of fertilisers, the government’s support for granting a special subsidy to compensate fertiliser producers, primarily of DAP/NP/NPKs, served as a breather and a shield, according to the report.
In terms of the future, GNFC stated that the company is in a position to capitalize on the boom in specific products and optimize both realization and profits through flexible and diverse product baskets. The company is confident in its ability to maintain consistent performance by balancing its product mix to serve markets.

The stock tanked after the company reported a 67% year-on-year (YoY) drop in profit after tax (PAT) of Rs 11.1 crore in the December quarter (Q3FY22), owing to higher operational costs.

During the quarter, the company experienced cost pressures due to an increase in raw material prices. However, the company did not pass this increase on to end-users because it expected the increase to reverse, which did not occur. As a result, both the gross margin and the EBITDA margin fell from the previous year.
A tepid revenue growth, primarily driven by a higher base in FY21 because Diwali was in the middle of November last year, had a positive impact in the third quarter of FY21. This year, the majority of Diwali purchases occurred before the third quarter, so volumes were relatively low when compared to last year.
The company added 7,182 retail outlets in Q3FY22, an 11.3% increase over September 2021 and a 36% increase over March 2021. “The expansion of our distribution network, combined with increased product offerings and technological advancements, will provide significant growth opportunities in the future and allow us to increase our market share,” the company’s management stated.
