The net profit after tax (PAT) followed suit, also growing by 18 per cent to ₹43.3 crore, up from ₹36.6 crore in the corresponding quarter of the previous year.

Indian firm Garware Technical Fibres reported a 5 per cent increase in Q3 FY24 net sales to ₹289.4 crore and an 18 per cent increase in net profit to ₹43.3 crore.
The company’s EPS grew by 20 per cent to ₹21.23 in Q3 FY23.
Despite a 1 per cent decline in 9M FY24 net sales, profits and EPS surged by 23 per cent and 25 per cent respectively.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2024 (9M FY24), Garware Technical Fibres experienced a slight 1 per cent dip in net sales, totalling ₹943.3 crore, compared to ₹935.1 crore in 9M FY23. Despite this, the company demonstrated strong profitability, with PBT increasing by 25 per cent to ₹180.2 crore in 9M FY24 from ₹144.7 crore in the same period last year. PAT also saw a substantial rise of 23 per cent to ₹138.7 crore, compared to ₹112.5 crore in 9M FY23. The EPS for the nine-month period showed a notable increase of 25 per cent, reaching ₹68.07.

“Q3 FY24 has shown growth of 18 per cent over previous Q3 FY23, in-spite of the disruptions in international logistics faced toward the end of the quarter. Margins continued to be strong throughout the year across all businesses so far. With a strong pipeline of orders from aquaculture globally, we look forward for a good fourth quarter. This is of course subject to our ability to reach materials in time to Europe and South America due to the Red Sea challenges,” said Vayu Garware, CMD, Garware Technical Fibres.
