The stock has increased by 367.09% in last one year, while the benchmark index S&P BSE Sensex has increased by 56.15%.
The rally in stock price was after the company reported a strong set of numbers for the March quarter (Q4FY21).
The company reported a 58.58 % year-on-year increase in consolidated net revenues for the Mar-21 quarter, at Rs564.64 crore. On a sequential basis, net sales revenues were up by 14.65% compared to total revenues in the Dec-20 quarter at Rs492.49cr.
On COVID impact, full year revenues for FY21 were nearly flat at Rs1,663cr. Construction activity and supply chain constraints impacted the tile business. This has now returned to pre-COVID levels. As a result of the increased profit, net cash from operations more than doubled to Rs356cr.
Net profits in the Mar-21 quarter increased to Rs35.26cr, up from a net loss of Rs-9.00cr in the Mar-20 quarter. While sales fell sharply in the Mar-20 quarter due to the pandemic, revenues were insufficient to cover fixed costs, resulting in losses for the quarter.
