The stock hit a fresh 52-week high of Rs.1292.80 today.
This was primarily due to the company’s strong earnings in the March quarter (Q4FY21), with profit after tax (PAT) increasing 124% year on year (YoY) to Rs.43 crore.

The increase in margins was due to an increase in both volumes and realizations. Furthermore, the company was able to pass on certain costs to customers. The asset-light model has also allowed the company to maintain high capacity utilization, and various cost-cutting measures implemented throughout the year have contributed to the company’s strong profitability.
