“Sharda Cropchem’s (SSC) performance bounced back in Q3FY23. SCC had endured a tepid H1FY23, suffering unfavourable EUR/USD movement, causing FX losses and impacting gross margins. With the recovery in gross margins and FX gain vs. our estimates of losses, overall EBITDA/PAT was ahead of estimates,” highlighted brokerage Edelweiss.

Sharda Cropchem’s net profit rose to 108 crore during the quarter as against 102 crore a year ago. Meanwhile, its sales grew to 1,017 crore versus 879.8 crore in the same quarter of the previous fiscal.

Further, it is expanding its range of products in each region, exploring newer markets and penetrating deeper into existing ones,” said brokerage Anand Rathi in a note.
