Total income surged 12.6% (not comparable due to change in accounting standard) and Net profit increased by 82.7% on yoy basis. The topline was supported by growth in volumes across all the business segments, whereas profit increased due to better product mix, reduction in operational cost and higher volumes. We expect profitability to improve further with focus on exports, high yield products and cost rationalization measures. Recommend Buy.
