Commenting  on  the  results    and  performance,  Mr.  Satish  Kumar    Agarwal,  Chairman  & Managing Director said: “Our performance for 9M FY19 has been stellar. We have been able to outperform the market. Our profits have grown by 66% to Rs. 17 crores. Our royalty income has increased by 35% to Rs. 60 crores for the first nine months. We are leveraging our strength of Asset Light Business Model, Strong Brand Royalty and Large Distribution and Marketing network created.

The company is on course to achieve its target of Rs. 100 crores as Royalty Income in 2020 With high infrastructure and housing growth expected, the demand for TMT Steel Bars would grow faster. Kamdhenu is future ready as we are looking to double our brand production capacity to 5 million MT per annum in the next 3 years through our franchisees.

In the first nine months of the year, our Revenues in the paint segment grew by 35% to Rs. 183 crores and EBIT grew by 284% to Rs. 4 crores. Growth was led by increased sales of value added products. The process of hive-off of the Paint Division through a de-merger into a separate mirror image shareholding company which had been recommended by the board during the last quarter is under progress. This would result in independent and better management focus on both the businesses, better operational efficiencies and unlocking value by listing both as different companies.”
