Commenting on the results Subhrakant Panda, Managing Director said: “The Q1 FY22 performance has been exceptional, driven by steady operations and upswing in prices globally. Our strategy of entering into long term contracts which are repriced every quarter assures offtake and leads to more stability, even as the benefit of price movement is reflected with a slight lag; however, some tonnage is set aside for spot sales and monthly contracts so as to capture upside in prices. Supply side dynamics are expected to dominate going ahead, and we are uniquely positioned to benefit given our fully integrated business model.”
