Commenting on the financial results, Mr. Sameer Goel - Managing Director, Coromandel International Limited, said: "Coromondel had a strong performance in 02, driven by its improved customer reach and marketing capabilities, differentiated product offerings, smart sourcing and efficient manufacturing. This was despite below normal monsoons, rising raw material prices, sharp rupee depreciation and higher financing cost encountered during the quarter.

Phosphatic Fertiliser business of the Company has improved its market share and registered 28% year-on-year (yoy) growth in sales volumes during Q2.

Crop Protection Business registered yoy revenue growth of 14% during the quarter. Business has introduced four new products during H1, including two in-house patented combination molecules. These have received very encouraging response from the market. Further, the integration of Bio Pesticide business has supported its expansion into complimentary product segments and geographies.

Our focus on R&D and technology has helped in introducing four differentiated product offerings in water soluble fertiliser and value added Single Super Phosphate.

With improved reservoir levels in Southern markets and prediction of normal North East monsoons, we expect favourable agri environment during the second half of the year. Further, with the stabilization of Direct Benefit Transfer in fertiliser and reduction in GST rates on Phosphoric acid, working capital situation is likely to improve, going forward.

Coromandel will continue to invest towards infrastructure augmentation and capability development to offer differentiated solutions to the farming community. We have been focusing on leveraging agri technologies to improve our farm value proposition and increase customer connectivity. The Company is well positioned to support the farmers and enhance their prosperity by offering sustainable agri solutions".
