The performance during the quarter was affected by a rise in the cost of materials consumed, constructions cost and tax expenses.

The company’s share price declined from Rs 292.1 on Thursday to Rs 285.3 on Friday, when the Q2FY22 results were announced, marking a decline of 2.33%.

KNR Constructions Limited, an infrastructure project development company, is engaged in engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts, as well as build-operate-transfer (BOT) projects across various sectors, such as construction and maintenance of roads, highways, flyovers and bridges.

The results of Q2FY22, which were reported yesterday, were not so impressive.

During the quarter, on a consolidated basis, the company’s net revenue grew by 28.38% YoY to Rs 842 crore. The PBIDT (ex OI) increased by 3.75% to Rs 177.52 crore, while the corresponding margin contracted by 489 bps YoY to 22.42%. This contraction was driven by a rise in expenses, particularly in the cost of materials consumed and the cost of construction. Furthermore, owing to a 123% increase in tax expenses, the PAT declined by 54.71% YoY to Rs 70.27 crore. Similarly, the PAT margin contracted by 1531 bps YoY to 8.35%.

Key developments during the quarter

The company bagged a project on HAM basis from NHAI worth Rs 1041.5 crore. With this, the total order book of the company (as of 30 September 2021) stood at Rs 6,511.3 crore. In addition to this, the company’s shareholders gave a nod for the sale of a 100% stake in 3 material subsidiaries namely KNR Shankarampet Projects Private Limited, KNR Srirangam Infra Private Limited and KNR Tirumala Limited Infra Private Limited to Cube Highways and Infrastructure III Pte Limited.
