Commenting on the performance of Q2 and H1FY23, Mr. Rajesh Aggarwal (MD) and the management team said:“We are very happy to share that we had a modest quarter and half year, both in terms of financial performance and in terms of market acceptance of our newly launched products in last fiscal year.

On the financial front, IIL has recorded revenue from operations of Rs. 5,822.09 million & EBITDA of Rs. 684.54 million for Q2FY23, thus delivering a growth of 31.15% in terms of revenue and 6.68% in terms of EBITDA. The EBITDA margins subsided by -269 bps in Q2FY23 on a YoY basis mainly due to the increased cost of raw materials and the EBITDA margins improved by 133 bps on QoQ basis, mainly due to improved product mix and stabilized cost of inventory. Further, for H1FY23, revenue stood at Rs. 11,428.99 million and EBITDA stood at Rs. 1,269.08 million. The EBITDA margins declined by -175 bps in H1FY23 owing mainly to the increase in cost of raw materials as compared to H1FY22. Revenue growth was majorly driven by following:

  • Products launched in FY22 recorded a revenue of ~Rs.929.93 million in H1FY23, contributing to ~8% of the revenue from operations, as compared to Rs.246.40 million in FY22. This shows the market acceptance of our products among the targeted customers.
  • Our R&D initiatives are being recognized as successful innovations in the form of several patents being granted in H1FY23, taking our total patented products to 18, which have performed better than expectations.
  • The Herbicides business has done extremely well in this half year and they now contribute to ~41% in H1FY23 as compared to ~33% in H1FY22.
  • Focused Maharatna products (premium of 11 product range consisting of the top Maharatna brands which are high-ranking in nature with superior margins) have performed really well in this half year and our total Maharatna products contributed to ~58% in H1FY23 as compared to ~55% in H1FY22.

During H1FY23, we witnessed softening of cost of basic raw materials, however the currency headwinds has limited the positive impact of the same. Further, as there is a market acceptance of our products launched in FY22, we can confidently say that the margins will further improve in the H2 as well.

Further, our working capital cycle has reduced to ~153 days in H1FY23. There has been slight increase in debtor days owing to delayed monsoons, which led to poor cash flows in the market. However, we believe that this is a temporary phenomenon, expected to reverse in the upcoming quarters.

In lines with our continuous efforts and focus towards research & innovation, we are pleased to inform that we have successfully obtained 9(3) registration for Cyazofamid 34.5% SC. Since product registration is a lengthy and gestational exercise in our industry, we expect our sustained efforts at data generation & registration to yield several product registrations in developed international markets in the next two years.

On the exports front, we continue to witness good demand, however we focused on exports in a calibrated manner, retaining our caution on the currency movement and likely distress of foreign debtors. We expect the exports to pick-up in H2 FY23, thereby enabling us to meet our exports target for FY23. The export sales works towards removing the quarterly cyclicality of the business.

During this quarter, we have received a GLP certification for one of our testing facilities at Chopankhi, Rajasthan, which showcases our unwavering commitment to produce highest quality products with most efficient processes. As a constant endeavour to enhance our presence in the biological markets, we have incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary by the name of “IIL Biologicals Ltd”.
