Net profits for Q4FY22 were lower by -5.10% at Rs595 crore and this can be largely attributed to the sharp spike in power and fuel costs, which has been the problem for most cement companies. EBITDA margin was 21.5%, while EBITDA per tonne stood at Rs1,091. Net margins stood at 17.60% in Q4FY22 quarter compared to 19.90% in Q4FY21. The reduction of net debt to below cash levels, improved the solvency ratios of Dalmia Bharat.
