Polycab Shares Fall Despite 93% Jump in Revenue

Jul 22, 2021

Shares of Polycab fell more than 3% in early trade today after the company reported a 36% year on year (YoY) decline in net profit at Rs 753 m for the June 2021 quarter.

The net profit declined due to one-off gains seen back in the June 2020 quarter. The net profit margin stood at 4%.

However, the company witnessed a 92.6% YoY jump in revenue at Rs 18.8 bn over the same period last year.

Due to the increase in revenue, the EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation) of the company surged 144% YoY to Rs 1.4 bn

Wires and cable business continues to shine

The revenue from the company's wires and cables business doubled to Rs 15.9 bn from Rs 7.9 bn in the same period last year.

In the domestic business, cables outperformed wires partly on account of a relatively favourable base. The revenue from the institutional business also came in higher by 2x.

Export contribution of the segment to the overall revenue increased to 6% compared to 4.5% in the March 2021 quarter.
