Sales surged by 17% YoY to Rs. 106 billion during CY18, predominantly attributable to 16% YoY higher urea prices along with 25% YoY surge in DAP prices.

 

Gross margins clocked-in at 26.4% in CY18 (up by 6.5ppt YoY), owing primarily to higher urea and DAP prices.

 

Financial charges declined by 34% YoY to Rs. 1.6 billion amid lower borrowings, while other income dropped by 39% YoY to Rs. 6.3 billion on account of absence of cash subsidy on urea and DAP.

 

The company booked effective taxation at 33% in CY18.
