In news from the consumer durables sector, Amber Enterprises hit a lower circuit of 20% today after posting weak March quarter results.

Amber Enterprises is a market leader in the Indian Room Air Conditioner (RAC) industry and has a diversified portfolio that includes RACs, RAC components, and air conditioning solutions for railways, metros, defence, bus & commercial segments.

The company reported a 24.2% decline in consolidated net profit to Rs 572.2 m in the March quarter as compared to Rs 754.6 m in the same quarter previous year.

Net sales stood at Rs 19.4 bn for the quarter March 2022 as against Rs 16 bn during the same period in the previous year, registering a growth of 21.2%.

On a full-year basis, the company reported a 33.8% increase in net profit and a 38.8% rise in net sales in financial year 2022.

For fiscal 2022, RAC sales contributed 47% of total revenue while components & mobility application contributed 53% of total revenue.

Commenting on the performance, the chairman and CEO, Jasbir Singh said:

  • The geopolitical tensions have led to inflationary pressure on commodity prices and the covid induced lockdowns in China have led to supply chain disruptions which has further added to the pain of the economy.

    Despite this, we have been able to pass on majority of price increases and have been largely able to maintain our profitability.

The company has acquired a majority stake in Pravartaka Tooling Services Private Limited and is set to provide more diversified solutions of injection molding tools and components for industries such as automotive, electronics & consumer durable.

The early arrival of summer in India coupled with an overall increase in consumer sentiment across the country can drive revenue growth for fiscal 2023.
