For CY11, the decline was more prominent at 8.6% YoY with margins at 22.4% versus 26.7% last year. This was mainly on account of increase in the cost of base oil and additives.

Essel Propack has declared its December 2011 results. Consolidated sales of the company increased by 13.7% YoY backed by 18% growth in its India operations and double-digit growth recorded by each of the four overseas markets. However higher raw material expenses kept margins under pressure at around 16.2%. At the net level, profits tumbled by 12.9% on account of large foreign exchange loss of Rs 5.2 m as compared to a gain of Rs 59.7 m in the year-ago quarter. Earnings from its Indian operations fell by 5% on account of high input prices, weak rupee and steep rise in interest rates.
