The Q3 FY20 net revenue increased by 4% on YOY basis backed by a better product mix and higher volumes. The improved performance is on account of higher sales of speciality films and strong operating margin on BOPP films (due to balanced demand-supply scenario). Last year results included Rs 8-crore of profit on sale of assets in US subsidiary following the relocation of plant.

Pankaj Poddar, CEO, Cosmo Films, said, “We have had one of the best quarterly results with a significant contribution coming from sales of newly developed products. The company’s R&D has done successful trials for in-house manufacturing of certain masterbatches and coating chemicals as a part of backward integration/ maintaining secrecy as well as diversification into new related business.”

Poddar added that the company shall start production, sales and internal consumption of these masterbatches and chemicals over the next few quarters under a newly wholly owned subsidiary. “These are low capex projects with good margin expansion for the company,” he said.
