The consolidated revenues grew by 27.16% to Rs.616.22 crores vs. Rs.484.59 cr. in the year ago quarter while it grew ~17% q-o-q. The growth was due to the combined effect of new products that started during the year and of increase in the share of business of few of the existing customers. Operating profit too grew sharply by 29% at Rs.58.56 crores as against Rs.45.43 crores in the preceding quarter while it climbed 24% on a q-o-q basis. The company's continued focus on value added products coupled with the ongoing cost optimization initiatives helped the profits. The adjusted net profit surged at Rs.23.04 crore as against Rs.21.73 crore; registering growth of mere 6% on a y-o-y basis while it surged by 30% as compared to like quarter last year mainly attributed to lower interest outgo. Interest expense decreased on account of better cash management, lower working capital requirements and repayment of term loan.
Minda Corporation achieved a higher growth on the back of new business and strong performance by Wiring Harness, After Market & Die Casting operations.
New product launches through technological advances and developments, client addition, increasing penetration in new territories, operational efficiency, capacity expansion and improving financial metrics bodes well for the company growth going forward.
