"We were able to register significant top and bottom line growth in Q2 With good demand across both domestic and international markets.
In this quarter, we are happy with the way overall business has picked up and our team’s ability to execute on demand. Profitability across businesses was well supported by a better product mix with high Value added products coupled with New products. Consolidated Cash generated from operations have been significantly better in H1 as compared to last year contributed by overall good working capital management.
Three patents were granted in this quarter which would further strengthen our differentiated solution approach in meeting the demanding application needs of the users of our products. While the PBT in Q2 reflected robust growth over corresponding period of F20, the PAT reflected decline as the company exercised the option to compute the revised effective tax rate of 25.17% in Q2 last year where there was a significant tax reversal."
