Tata Power reported a 43% jump in consolidated revenue for the three months ended December 2021 but its operating income, margins and profit faced pressure due to high raw material and fuel costs.

Tata Power reported a consolidated net profit of Rs 551.89 crore in December 2021 quarter, up 73.6% year-on-year. Its net profit was Rs 318.41 crore for October-December 2020 and Rs 505.66 crore for July-September 2021.

The company’s consolidated revenue from operations stood at Rs 10,913.14 crore, up 43%. This surpassed analysts’ estimates of a 24-25% growth aided by acquisitions of Odisha power distribution companies and solar EPC business.

Revenue was Rs 7,597.91 crore for October-December 2020 and Rs 9,810.22 crore for July-September 2021.

6) Consolidated revenue for nine months ended Dec. 31 was up 33% at Rs 30,491 crore.
