India Cements: Impressive performance
Aug 27, 2007

Performance summary
  • On the back of increased volume and firm prices, the company has achieved almost 45% YoY growth in topline.

  • Though input costs scaled up, operating margins stood at 37.7% during 1QFY08 and have expanded by almost 360 basis points (3.6%) over corresponding previous quarter, mainly driven by improved physical performance.

  • A 360 basis points expansion in operating margins and lower finance charges has resulted into an equally impressive 300 basis points expansion in net margins and a YoY growth of 63%.
