Godrej Properties Ltd Tuesday reported a fivefold increase in consolidated net profit for the second quarter, helped by higher sales and better inventory management.

Net profit for the quarter through September rose to Rs 35.7 crore from Rs 7.10 crore a year earlier, the Godrej Group company said.

Revenue from operations climbed 44% to Rs 129.32 crore from Rs 89.5 crore in the same period last year.

While revenue jumped 44%, its total expenses rose barely 7.8% to Rs 231.8 crore. This was thanks to a sharp drop in cost of materials consumed to around Rs 236 crore in the second quarter from Rs 1,773 crore a year earlier.

In addition, inventory stood at a negative Rs 177 crore compared with a negative Rs 1,772 crore last year.

The developer’s operational performance also showed significant improvement, with total booking value in the second quarter more than doubling to Rs 2,574 crore from Rs 1,074 crore a year earlier. Total booking volume stood at 3.61 million sq ft, compared with 1.73 million sq ft in July-September last year.
