Cochin Shipyards reported 32.43% lower Sep-20 quarter top line sales revenues at Rs657.40cr. The shipbuilding and ship repair activity, the principal activity of Cochin Shipyards, had a temporary disruption but the lag effect continued well into the Sep-20 quarter. The company continued to work on a reduced time scale for a good part of the quarter and that hit the top line badly.


For the Sep-20 quarter, the operating profits were down 42.49% at Rs111.52cr. This fall can largely be attributed to the lower levels of revenues unable to absorb the fixed costs efficiently. This resulted in the operating margin or OPM contracting from 19.93% in the Sep-19 quarter to 16.96% in Sep-20 quarter.


Profit after tax (PAT) for the Sep-20 quarter was down by 48.06% at Rs107.16cr. The company got lower support from other income during the quarter. PAT margins also contracted from 21.21% to 16.30% in Q2; largely on the back of operating reasons.
