Upbeat exports

KPCL, a major player in air, refrigeration and gas compression business in India stated that order booking for exports has also been encouraging.

“During the quarter the company delivered a record number of compressors for the oxygen plants and other key application areas despite supply chain challenges. CNG compressor sales, however, got impacted by chip shortages and availability of gas engines despite strong order booking,” the company said in the press statement.

Most of the CNG packages will be supplied in Q3 and Q4 apart from major project orders which are in various stages of execution in this period. The demand for compressors for oxygen generation is also expected to continue in the second half of the financial year.

“EBITDA is at ₹46 crore for H1FY22 vs ₹20 crore for H1FY21. EBITDA margin improved to 11.6 per cent for H1FY22 vs 8.8 per cent in H1FY21. PBT was posted at ₹25.4 crore for H1FY22 vs just ₹0.4 crore in H1 FY21,” the company stated in a press release.
