Raymond Ltd reported 9.81% growth in total revenues for the March 2023 quarter on consolidated basis at Rs2,150cr. On a sequential basis, the revenues were up down by just about -0.83%. In terms of segmental sales, Raymond reported apparel, garmenting and auto parts. However, the company saw lower sales on the real estate business. In terms of contribution to the operating profits, apparel, garmenting and real estate contributed on the positive side.

The company reported lower profits on account of Rs97 crore deferred tax benefits from the investments written down which was recorded in the March 2022 quarter. This enhanced the base and reduced the profits. In both the quarters, the company had taken an exceptional write-off of close to Rs100 crore on account of write-downs of inventories and receivables.
