UPL Ltd’s Financial Highlights:

- UPL’s Revenue for the Quarter ended 31st March 2023 grew 4.47% to Rs. 16,569 Crores. The quarter was impacted by a rapid decline in product prices and delays in planting season that resulted in headwinds for product placements. The revenue for the full year ended 31st March 2023 grew 16% to Rs. 53,576 Crores led by better product realizations (+10%), favorable currency impact (+5%), and flat volumes 
- EBITDA dropped by 15.54% to Rs. 3033 Crores in Q4FY23. EBITDA grew 10% to Rs. 11,178 Crores for FY23.

- Net Debt of $2.06 Billion as of 31st March 2023. 

Commenting on the performance, Mr. Jai Shroff, Chairman and Group CEO – UPL Ltd, said “We delivered a resilient set of results for FY23 despite facing significant headwinds in the final quarter. Thanks to the dedication, agility, and tenacity of our teams, we were able to deliver on most of our commitments. 
We reduced our gross debt by over $600 Million and net debt by $440 Million driven by improved cash flow from operations and a leaner working capital cycle.
In line with our priority of creating shareholder value, we created distinct pure-play platforms during the year to bring in enhanced focus and operational freedom to pursue independent growth strategies thereby unleashing the growth potential of each of our distinct platforms.
Going forward, as we look ahead to FY24, we are well-positioned to deal with the market headwinds and deliver better profitability growth. In the longer term, we remain confident of achieving our growth ambitions and transforming the food value chain with emphasis on sustainability.”
