Operating margins shrank by 3% over the same quarter last year. The 13% topline growth was led by 15% YoY increase in its consumer durables segment. Overall growth in topline was impacted by the poor performance of the E&P (Engineering and Projects) division, which managed just a 3% YoY growth. Again decline in operating margins was result of poor performance by E&P division which registered negative margins. Net profit fell by 51% because of rising interest expense which saw 88% increase, higher depreciation and fall in other income.
