The company’s overall net profit increased by 163% year on year (YoY) to Rs 264.7 crore, owing to strong operational performance. Consolidated revenue increased 45% year on year to Rs 2,572 crore, while consolidated Ebitda increased 87% year on year to Rs 516.4 crore, and margins improved to 20.1% from 15.6% in Q4FY20.

In Q4FY21, the company’s total production volume increased by 33.7 percent year on year to 126,822 metric tonnes (MT), while total sales volume increased by 43.5 percent year on year to 136429 MT “.

Aside from that, Uflex has announced a capital expenditure (capex) of Rs 120 crore for a printing line and some associated equipment, in response to the growing demand for the company’s products (aseptic packaging). The aforementioned capex plan will be financed with both owned and borrowed funds.
In addition, the company announced the commissioning of a brownfield BOPP film line in Egypt with a capacity of 42,000 TPA. Going forward, the management expects higher volumes from the company’s newly established capacities in FY22 and will strive to maintain Ebitda margins of 20%.
