Ishwarbhai Patel, Chairman & CEO, Super Crop Safe, said," We are very happy to announce the results of the first half of fiscal year 2019. The first half has been challenging for the company mainly due to drought in Gujarat, Maharashtra and Rajasthan. The rising prices of raw material has also impacted the company's performance. Amidst these headwinds, the company has successfully posted the stable results with EBITDA of 389.12 lakhs in H1 FY19 as against 366.63 lakhs in H1 FY18. Our operation in UP, that we started in the last quarter, has turned out to be a great investment for this quarter.
We recently obtained the organic certificate of manufacturing, processing, storage and trading for two of our high margin & high demand products, triNETRA, Super Gold-Mycorrhizal, which enhanced the market value of these products. Rabi crop season will be great for the company as GOI has increased the MSP of Rabi crop, which will have a positive impact in the second half of fiscal year 2019."
Our intent is to become a pan India player with significant product mix. The company making strategical plans to enter new regions, getting geographical benefits, to increase the sales.
