TPL posted revenue of Rs463cr compared to Rs464cr in the preceding quarter and Rs288cr in the corresponding quarter of the previous year. Earnings increased 61% vis-a-vis Q2FY21 but were lower than the preceding quarter, attributable to a decrease in price realization during the quarter.
EBITDA increased to Rs68.15cr in Q2FY22 from Rs39.89cr in Q2FY21. Profit After Tax (PAT) rose to Rs45.20cr from Rs24.64cr in Q2FY21. PAT in Q1FY22 was Rs54.64cr.

Ashwin Muthiah, Vice Chairman - TPL and Founder Chairman, AM International, Singapore said: “The financial results demonstrate that the company's business strategy of focusing on customers while maintaining revenues is working well. As the economy recovers, the fundamental goal will be to maintain operational continuity, deliver healthy margins and continue our investments in technology and green energy initiatives. I thank my colleagues, customers and vendor partners who have made this journey possible.
We will focus on maintaining COVID-19 protocols as the health and well-being of our employees, and their families remain a key priority. In addition, the company's CSR programs for the upliftment of the local community will continue as a part of our ESG commitment.”
Muthukrishnan Ravi, CEO, Petrochemicals Division of AM International group, said, “sales volumes were similar in both the first and second quarters of current fiscal but due to supply-demand mismatch, spot prices were lower during the quarter under review. On the other hand, the input costs went up, resulting in lower EBIDTA of about 16%.”
