Company’s Insights on its Financial Performance
During the company’s earnings call for its Q1 FY24 financial performance, Mr Ajit Venkataraman, Managing Director of Finolex Industries Ltd., said, “Q1 FY ’24 continues to see strong volume growth on the back of improvement in demand dynamics in both rural and urban segments. Operating performance has improved despite correction in PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) prices. While the performance of pipes and fitting segment has been phenomenal, the PVC segment was adversely impacted due to sharp contraction in the PVC/EDC (Ethylene dichloride) and PVC/VCM (Vinyl Chloride Monomer) delta during the quarter. However, this trend seems to be improving in the current quarter, with some feedstock prices normalizing”.
