Sugar manufacturer EID Parry (India) Ltd has posted a huge jump in second quarter net profit to Rs 325 crore (from Rs 49.48 crore in the corresponding previous quarter), aided by an exceptional income.

The exceptional item is a dividend income of Rs 265 crore from subsidiary company Coromandel International.

The division’s revenue was Rs 407 crore (Rs 325 crore.)

With sugar selling prices going up by Rs 2.50 to Rs 33 a kg, the company has seen higher realisation compared to last year, said Singhvi.

During the quarter, EID Parry exported power of 917 lakh units (890 lakh units).

The bio-products division (comprising bio-pesticides and neutraceuticals) registered revenues of Rs 33 crore (Rs 25 crore).
