The company's net sales, however, jumped 52 percent to Rs 4,026 crore in the quarter from Rs 2,640 crore in the same period of the previous year, while adjusted EBITDA was up almost 13 percent to Rs 541 crore.

Profit before tax dipped 49.8 percent to Rs 223.46 crore in the fourth quarter from the year-ago period, the company said.
The company reported finance costs of Rs 119 crore, a drop from Rs 124 crore during the fourth quarter of 2020. The decrease in finance costs was due to the depreciation of the euro against the Indian rupee by 2.6 percent coupled with lower utilisation of working capital borrowings compared to last-year quarter.
