UPL is likely to post net profit at Rs 473 crore in January-March quarter, up 7.5 percent from Rs 440 crore in corresponding quarter last fiscal. According to a CNBC-TV18 poll, the company's revenue in Q4FY16 may rise 6.9 percent at Rs 3876 crore from Rs 3624 crore in year-ago period.


During the period, EBITDA is seen up 7.9 percent at Rs 846 crore against Rs 784 crore while EBITDA margins may come in at 21.8 percent versus 21.6 percent year-on-year (YoY).


Analysts polled by CNBC-TV18 think Q4 margins may expand marginally led by better operating leverage and negative currency impact is likely to have adverse impact on revenue growth. Lower raw material prices may further aide gross margins in Q4 but higher tax rate is expected in the quarter.

Growth in international business may be driven by rest of the world and Latin American markets while Europe and North American markets could see some improvement. Indian operations in Q4 may remain under pressure as
impact of currency may lead to negative surprise in the results.
