On a consolidated basis, Supreme Industries revenue grew 5% to Rs 1,948 crore on a YoY. Overall the company’s volume sale has gone down by around 18%. Major revenue contributor Plastic piping (60% of revenue) was flat on YoY, due to a swing in the prices which have affected overall demand for the products. Due to supply chain disruption, the company had suffered de-growth in the CPVC pipe system.
Industrial products (15% of total revenue) and packaging products (20% of revenue) had a decent increase in YoY revenue growth due to demand for performance packaging film which has shown 50% growth in volume mostly from the export market.
EBITDA declined 19% to Rs 369 crore on YoY and got contracted 600 bps on YoY. This margin contraction is due to an increase in the raw material cost in the XF division.
