Ultratech Cement: On the recovery path…
Jan 23, 2006

Ultratech Cement, a leading cement player in the country, announced its December quarter results on Saturday. Riding strong on the back of robust realisations owing to a favourable demand-supply scenario in the country, the company reported a healthy topline growth during the quarter, thus improving over its 1HFY06 performance. Operating margins were also considerably higher during the quarter, which helped the company report a profit in 3QFY06 compared to a loss in the corresponding quarter of last year. The results of the nine-month period have also been encouraging.
