Commenting on the performance, Mr. Venkatesh Katwa, Chairman of Shri Keshav Cement & Infra Limited said, “Despite facing cost pressure, the Company has successfully maintained an EBITDA margin of approximately 30%, which is commendable. However, like the rest of the cement industry, we are also concerned about the rising prices of coal and pet coke. Nonetheless, our strategic initiatives, including the establishment of a captive solar power plant, have enabled us to report a profit for the current year.

In addition to our efforts in the cement sector, we have capitalized on the opportunities in the Solar segment. As a result, there has been a rise in the deferred tax for Q4FY23, which has exerted pressure on our bottom line. It’s important to note that this adjustment is a one-time occurrence.

Looking ahead, we maintain a highly positive outlook for the future growth of our cement business. Our recent investments in the Company will facilitate the modernization of our cement plant. Combining the capabilities of our new cement plant and our captive solar power plant, we anticipate generating one of the best EBITDA per ton figures in the industry. These investments will significantly enhance our operational efficiency and profitability, positioning us for continued success.”
