COMMENTING ON THE Q3FY24 PERFORMANCE, Bimal Goculdas, Managing Director and CEO, said,

During Q3FY24, DMCC faced a challenging operating environment that continued to impact the broader chemical industry. The quarter was marked by a subdued financial performance, primarily attributable to the compression of gross margins. This compression was largely a result of an unfavourable product mix that emerged during the quarter.

In the bulk chemicals segment, we experienced high volumes, which, while contributing to the top line, came with relatively lower margins. Conversely, the speciality chemicals segment, particularly in export markets, saw a reduction in volume off-take compared to previous quarters. Notably, the months of November and December witnessed unusually low volumes in speciality chemical exports, a trend that persisted into January. Among the end user industries, the agrochemical sector faced significant challenges, leading to decreased demand for our products. On a brighter side, the pigments segment showed signs of slight improvement.

Despite these challenges, we continued to focus on innovation and product development, ensuring we remain at the forefront of the industry even during downturns. A significant achievement in this quarter was the debottlenecking of our Boron production capacity. This strategic expansion has successfully increased our Boron capacity by 30-35%. Towards the quarter's end, we observed promising traction in the Boron segment, fuelling our optimism for increased volumes in the subsequent quarters. We are confident that FY25 will mark an upturn for our Boron business.

In line with our commitment to sustainability and responsible operations, we have initiated the implementation of the Responsible Care program at our Dahej site. This initiative is expected to be completed in the coming months, further strengthening our dedication to environmental stewardship and safety.

Despite the headwinds faced in Q3FY24, leading to an impact on our financial performance, we remain positive about the future. Our team's resilience and the strategic initiatives underway, including capacity expansions and product innovations, position us well for a rebound. As the demand environment normalises, DMCC is poised to leverage its enhanced capacities and diversified product portfolio to drive improved financial performance.
