MAJOR UPDATES

  • Maruti Suzuki’s Q1 net profit doubles to Rs 2,485 crore on strong volumes and price rises; revenue up 22%.

    MSIL’s standalone net profit rose 145.5 percent YoY to Rs 2,485.1 crore in the first quarter of FY24. The company attributed the sharp gain in quarterly earnings to better sales volume, improved realisation, cost reduction, and non-operating income.

    The largest passenger vehicle maker’s quarterly revenue climbed 22% YoY at Rs 32,326.94 crore. Volume growth, pricing increases, and a better product mix boosted the company’s Q1 FY24 financials, according to analysts.

    However, corporate revenue rose 23.5 percent to Rs 491.1 crore from Rs 397 crore. CNBC-TV18 polled brokerages and estimated Navin Fluorine revenue at Rs 625 crore. High-cost inventory destocking and low export demand hurt the company’s bottom line and operations.

    UPL Ltd.’s April-June net profit fell 81.1 percent to Rs 166 crore from Rs 877 crore in the previous fiscal. The net profit missed the Street’s Rs 262 crore estimate.

    Revenue fell 17.2% year-on-year to Rs 8,963 crore from Rs 10,821 crore in the base quarter. Brokerage polls anticipate UPL revenue at Rs 9,790 crore. The corporation blamed the quarterly results on an industry slowdown.
