02th August, 2022: Paradeep Phosphates Ltd (PPL) today declared its financial results for the quarter ended 30th June, 2022. The Company reported income from operations at INR 2,435 Cr, up by 85% as compared to INR 1,316 Cr of the corresponding quarter of previous year. EBITDA for the quarter is INR 167 Cr up by 56% as compared to INR 107 Cr of the corresponding quarter of the previous year. PAT for the quarter INR 63 Cr, compared to INR 60 Cr for corresponding quarter of previous year.

Commenting on the results, Mr. S Krishnan, Managing Director, Paradeep Phosphates said, “During the first quarter, we have added significant capacities through organic as well as inorganic route. This includes completion of revamp of three out of our four granulation trains at Paradeep site and also completion of the acquisition of the Goa plnat which has in turn added 1.2 million MT to our overall capacity. With this, PPL now has an annualised capacity of 2.85 MMTPA as of 30th June’22. This quarter also marks the launch of a new product from our portfolio – the NPK 14:28:0 – a product that is a balanced combination of “N” and “P” ingredients and helps to further deepen our farmer linkages. While the Paradeep unit continues to perform well taking advantage of the deep supply chain linkages and long term procurement contracts, our current quarter performance has been impacted due to the various acquisition related costs such as stamp duty charges and the start-up costs of the urea-ammonia operations – all of which have been expensed off as per accounting standards. We believe robust demand will continue for sector on account of low inventory, good monsoon and high level of reservoir.
