Commenting on the performance for the quarter, in a joint statement, Mr. Pushkar Khurana, Chairman, and Mr. Puneet Khurana, Managing Director, said "We are pleased to report a healthy performance for the quarter. A steady increase in demand across both our domestic and international markets over the past few quarters has enabled us to improve our performance compared to the same quarter last year significantly. Notably, our key CNG segment sales have shown a YoY and QoQ increase, contributing significantly to our overall results in Q3.

In the landscape of India's energy evolution, the government's proactive steps to promote CNG as one of the essential fuels are commendable. A recent mandate for blending Compressed Biogas (CBG) with CNG marks a significant step within a broader strategy to increase the share of natural gas in the energy mix, aiming for environmental and economic benefits. The expansion of the City Gas Distribution (CGD) network and gas pipelines, which now aim to cover a majority of the population and geographical area, together with efforts to make CNG more affordable through revised pricing and financial incentives, highlights the government's dedication to a sustainable, cleaner energy future.

Moreover, the government's substantial investments to position India as a global frontrunner in green hydrogen by 2030 reflect a bold vision for the country's energy sector. With green hydrogen poised to play a pivotal role in India's sustainable energy framework, EKC's role in supplying hydrogen cylinders globally places us in a strong position within the expanding hydrogen market.

Looking forward, we are committed to reinforcing our market leadership, augmenting value for all our stakeholders, and making a meaningful contribution to the worldwide movement towards cleaner energy solutions. With adequate capacities and a strong balance sheet, EKC is well-positioned to capitalize on future growth opportunities, further enhancing our leadership in the industry."
