Indo Gulf Corp. posts 29% jump in net

Indo Gulf Corporation has posted a sharp rise in operating profit margins. This is due to better realisations and cost control methods adopted by the company.

However, there is a decline in the net profit margins. This could be attributed to the sharp rise in interest and depreciation expenditiure. The rise in tax liability has also contributed to lower net margins.
