However, its revenue from operation during January-March 2022 jumped 37.7 per cent to Rs 6,663.72 crore, against Rs 4,838.5 crore in the year-ago period.

Rochi Soya has also declared its maiden dividend of Rs 5 per equity share (on a face value of Rs 2 per equity share) for the financial year 2021-22, according to a regulatory filing. “The board of directors at its meeting held on May 27, 2022, inter alia, has recommended a dividend of Rs 5 per equity share on 36,19,94,853 equity shares of Rs 2 each for the financial year ended March 31, 2022.”

The company’s Ebitda during the March 2022 quarter stood at Rs 418.54 crore with an Ebitda margin of 6.27 per cent, it said. “The company continues to sustain its Ebitda margins in spite of rising inflation levels, macro challenges, as well as the need to manage costs aggressively to maintain margins in a healthy range.” Ebitda stands for earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation.
