India’s largest global flexible packaging company Uflex has registered 38% growth in its consolidated net profit for Q3 FY 2015-16 when compared to the same period during the last financial year. The net profit stands at Rs. 78.7 crore as compared to Rs. 57.1 crore during the third quarter of the previous financial year.
The consolidated total revenue for Q3 FY 2015-16 has been a tad lower at Rs. 1511 crore as compared to Rs. 1533.8 crore during the corresponding period of the previous financial year due to fall in selling prices of packaging films mainly owing to the drop in the prices of raw materials.
The consolidated total revenue for the first nine months of FY 2015-16 is Rs. 4651 crore, while the consolidated net profit for the same period stands at Rs. 232.6 crore, up from Rs. 186.2 crore when compared to the same period during last financial year, thus registering a bottom line growth of 25%.
Upon declaration of Q3 results, Mr. Ashok Chaturvedi, Chairman and Managing Director of Uflex Group said “I am glad that the innovation quotient of the organization has been continuously rising – a fact that is well evident from the consistent growth in our bottom line.
