Commenting on the performance, Mr. Puneet Dalmia, Managing Director & CEO – Dalmia Bharat Limited, said, “Cement sector has a pivotal role in India’s growth story and infrastructure, housing and private capex will drive the demand growth for the next decade and beyond. During FY24 we delivered a volume growth of 11.8% at 28.8Mnt and EBITDA growth of 13.4% at Rs. 2,639Cr. We will continue to work on gaining market share and improving realizations while deepening the cost leadership. I remain excited about the tremendous opportunity ahead and believe that we are on a clear path of accelerated growth backed by sustainable business investments, strong Balance Sheet and a dedicated team.”

Mr. Dharmender Tuteja, Chief Financial Officer – Dalmia Bharat Limited, said “We bounced back and delivered an industry-leading volume growth of 18.5% YoY during the quarter. However, unexpected drop in cement prices led to EBITDA erosion during the quarter with EBITDA margin declining from 18.1% in Q4’23 to 15.2% in current quarter. During the ensuing year, we will continue to focus on our levers of long-term cost savings including renewable energy, operationalizing our captive coal mines, digitization of supply chain and invest in our brand.”
