Gross margins of the company are expected to decline by 142 bps YoY to 7.6%. Decline in gross margins is expected due to 8% YoY reduction in international PTA margins (average USD 130/ton).

Net sales during the quarter are expected to increase by 22% YoY owing to 9% YoY rise in PTA prices along with PKR depreciation.

On QoQ basis, earnings are expected to decrease by 37% owing to 23% QoQ decline in international PTA margins.
