Packaging materials and solution company Uflex share price rallied 17 percent intraday on Tuesday despite sharp fall in March quarter profit.

Consolidated net profit dropped 27.6 percent year-on-year to Rs 71.1 crore, but revenue from operations grew by 12.2 percent to Rs 1,817.8 crore for the quarter ended March 2018.

The company said the fall in profit was primarily due to increased depreciation cost on account of commissioning of Aseptic Packaging Plant and higher tax outgo.

EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) grew by 2.1 percent to Rs 223.5 crore, but margin contracted 120 basis points to 12.3 percent compared to same period last year.

Rajesh Bhatia, Global CFO of Uflex said the total production volume has been up by 8.5 percent in FY17-18. The total sales volume has also echoed the same trend and has been up by 8.6 percent in last year.
