Galaxy Surfactants Q4 Result 2022: Profit increased by 25% to Rs 98 crore
Specialty care product maker Galaxy Surfactants Limited (GSL) on Wednesday posted a 25 per cent jump in net profit to Rs 98.40 crore for the fourth quarter ended March 2022 on strong earnings.
According to a regulatory filing, the company had posted a net profit of Rs 78.68 crore in the same quarter last fiscal.
Total income increased to Rs 1,054.13 crore in January-March 2021-22 from Rs 786.10 crore in the previous year.
“This has been a strong quarter for us. Amid global uncertainty, Galaxy has reported its highest quarterly profit,” said managing director U Shekhar.
Although overall performance in the last fiscal year was muted, the company ended the year on a strong note, he said.
According to the filing, the company had a net profit of Rs 262.78 crore in 2021-22, down from Rs 302.14 crore in the previous fiscal.
Total income, however, was Rs 3,698.22 crore more than Rs 2,94.92 crore in 2020-21.
“If FY22 is about managing supply-side risks, we believe FY23 will handle both; supply-side as well as ‘demand-side’ risks.
The company is seeing the first signs of declining demand and down-trading in some parts of India. The deteriorating supply situation due to the Russia-Ukraine war and the lockdown in China will exacerbate it, he said.
“In this context, we launch FY23 on a cautionary note,” he said.
Shares of Galaxy Surfactants rose nearly 4 percent on the NSE on Wednesday.
