What were the triggers for the revenue growth. Let us look at specific verticals. Revenues from the pharma ingredients and the API segment were lower by 2.6% yoy at Rs.999 crore and that was due to supply chain constraints in the business. However, revenues from global generics were up 19% at Rs.4,743 crore and accounted for a bulk of the top line.

Net profits for the Sep-21 quarter were higher by 30.2% at Rs.992 crore. This was on the back of a spurt in the gross margins by 600 bps to 53.4%. Reddy Labs spent Rs.446 crore on  R&D which is 7.7% of sales, and well above the peer group median. EBITDA margins at 27% improved by 600 bps quarter on quarter. India and EM markets showed best growth.

Reddy Labs had a comfortable net debt to equity ratio of 0.015X. Free cash flows stood at Rs.83 crore, which can considered small for a company of that size and scale. Net margins for Reddy Labs at 17.21% was surely better than 15.56% in the Sep-20 year ago quarter and it was sharply better than NPM of 11.6% in Jun-21 quarter.

Two other verticals viz.  natural gas transmission and LPG transmission was almost flat on YoY basis. However petchem, liquid hydrocarbons and the CGD business saw good growth in revenues on YoY basis.

Net profits were up 159.34% for the Sep-21 quarter at Rs.2,883 crore. Profits were also higher by 35% on a quarter to quarter basis. The big boost to EBIT came from natural gas marketing which went from an EBIT loss of Rs-335 crore to an EBIT profit of Rs.1,029 crore.
