Board recommends final Dividend of 120%
Pune, India – April 28, 2022: Kirloskar Pneumatic Company Ltd (KPCL) (BSE : 505283), a major player in Air, Refrigeration & Gas Compression business in India, announced today its financial results for the financial year ended 31st March 2022.
The company achieved several milestones during the financial year: Crossed Rs 1,000 crores in sales; Crossed Rs 100 crores in PBT; Manufactured over 3,100 compressors during the year; and Crossed Rs 100 crores in Export order booking. The second half of the fiscal saw the emergence of new challenges in cost of various inputs, disruption in supplies and major uncertainty in supplies from Europe and China. Yet in all this, the company was well positioned to handle the situation based on strong order inflow and an integrated supply chain.
While orders with longer execution cycle are discouraged, the order board as on 31st March 22 was over Rs. 1,250 crores compared to Rs. 925 crores at the beginning of the previous year. The strong and active enquiry pipeline would further allow the Company to get orders at viable prices and with shorter execution cycles.
The R&D initiatives had a strong thrust. This will enable the Company to bring to the market two new products in Q1: The Khione refrigeration screws for the Pharma, food and Dairy industry and the Hydro Booster compressor for the CNG stations that are off the gas pipeline grid.
Compression business continues to be over 95% of the Company’s revenue and remains as only reporting segment. All other activities have been grouped under other non-reportable segments.
