Cement manufacturer Shree Cement posted a 2.87 per cent rise in its standalone net profit at Rs 309.95 crore in the quarter ended December 31, 2019. The net profit in the corresponding quarter last fiscal stood at Rs 301.29 crore.

The Kolkata-headquartered firm’s net revenue stood at Rs 2,848.34 crore, up 2.43 per cent from Rs 2,780.63 crore clocked in the year-ago-period. The company said cement sales went up 6 per cent to 5.98 million tonne from 5.64 million tonne recorded in the corresponding quarter of the previous year.

“With continuous focus on premium brand segment and reduction in fuel and other input costs, the EBIDTA (earnings before interest, depreciation, taxes and amortization) and net profit of the company increased during the quarter ended December 31, 2019," Shree Cement said in a statement.

The release further added, “cement demand has been largely muted due to slowdown in Indian economy. There are however, green shoots visible on the back of good monsoon and infra spending."

During the quarter under review, Shree Cement said it raised Rs 2,400 crore through Qualified Institutions Placement (QIP) and allotted 12,43,523 equity shares of Rs 10 each at a price of Rs 19,300 per equity share in November.
