In the last quarter, which ended in June 2023, UltraTech Cement experienced robust growth in both revenue and profit, surpassing analyst estimates. The company recorded a net profit of Rs 16.90 billion for the quarter, representing a 7 percent increase compared to the same quarter the previous year. Additionally, the revenue for the quarter jumped by 17 percent, reaching Rs 177.37 billion as opposed to Rs 151.63 billion reported in Q1 FY23. During the June quarter, the domestic sales volume of UltraTech Cement rose by 20 percent year-on-year, with a capacity utilization rate of 89 percent.
