Commenting on the Q1FY23 performance, Sanjay Shah, Executive Director, said: "We are pleased to report a good start to the new financial year, with a decent Q1FY23. The Company reported a robust 40% increase in top-line YoY and a marginal drop of 9% QoQ. While April started out good, the Company witnessed a slower May and June primarily on account of the immediate effects of the Government of India's notification of an increase in export duty on various metals and minerals. Pick-up from the steel sector was a little slow during the quarter; however, things are progressing smoothly now.
Our Revenue from Operations stood at 133.7 Crores, compared to the high of 147.2 Crore in Q4FY22. Although volumes witnessed some compression during the Q1FY23, it was compensated by an increase in Realisations of Cored Wires. The Company did witness some decrease in the realisation of Aluminium Flipping Coil during the quarter. On the profitability front, our EBITDA margins remained strong at 8.2% in Q1FY23. Subsequently, PAT for the quarter stood at an all-time high of 8.6 Crores, an increase of 24% YoY and 6% QoQ.
Considering the external environment during the quarter, the Company's performance was good, which was aided by our team's hard work and strategic marketing efforts. We expect the immediate effects of export duty-related hiccups & subsequent fall in the steel prices to wear off in the coming quarter and the normalisation of demand in Q2FY22. Our outlook for the year remains solid on the back of incremental capacities coming up at Sarthak Metals during the current year, and the CAPEXs announced by our clients, some of India's most prominent steel players."
