Operating Profits stood at Rs 22.5 crore, increased by 6% y-o-y and OPM improved by 68 bps on the back of growth in the pumps business by 6% y-o-y. Net profit reported was Rs 13.5 crore, improved by 5% y-o-y and profit margins expanded by 33 bps y-o-y to 10.1% on account of higher interest and depreciation cost due to heavy capex exercised by the company during this year.
