“Current quarter results have shown better performance on all fronts. Operating EBITDA margins improved to 21.5 per cent in Q4 FY23 vs 20.6 per cent in Q4 FY22, primarily on account of strong pull from customers for new aquaculture products in Chile and Scotland.

“Geosynthetics business has registered excellent growth during the current quarter and overall for the year,” Garware Technical Fibres CMD Vayu Garware said.

Due to a focused and concentrated approach on funds release from operations, the company has done well on working capital management and as a result, cash generation from operations has significantly improved over the previous year, he said.

“We look forward to a good FY24 with international sports business expected to come back on track and some improvement in orders from Norway, which have been subdued due to the new resource tax being imposed by the Norwegian government, ” he added.
