Development on Demerger of Textile Business
  • Our earlier scheme of demerger has been withdrawn post the sale of home textile business. We have filed a fresh scheme of demerger of spinning businesses. We expect this new scheme to be completed by around September 2022, said Company in a filing.
Commenting on the financial performance, R S Jalan, Managing Director, GHCL said, “Following easing of lockdown restrictions and improving macro trends, we witnessed enhanced traction across industries, almost back to pre-pandemic levels. Moreover, we observed sequential improvement during the quarter supported by favorable demand supply dynamics backed by positive pricing scenario.

In the Inorganic Chemical segment, we reported solid performance momentum with 12% volume growth in Soda Ash in Q3 of FY22 along with healthy realisation gains backed by strong demand from key end user industries. Spinning segment continued to do well, driven by higher demand off take and firm yarn prices. Our focus on value-added products is yielding profitability gains on a higher base.

On a strategic note, we have proposed to divest our home textile business, while retaining the highly profitable spinning business. The divestment proceeds will be prudently utilized across growth initiatives outlined in both Chemicals and Spinning Businesses. On the other hand, GHCL is continuing with its objective of having separate entities for each business verticals with a limited change that instead of entire Textiles Business, only Spinning Division of GHCL is now proposed to be demerged to the GHCL Textiles Limited.

Overall, we are very well poised to capitalize on the emerging opportunities across our businesses.”

At around 11:40 AM, GHCL was trading at Rs450.35 apiece up by Rs5.25 or 1.18% on the BSE.
