Mumbai: Cement manufacturer Shree Cement Ltd on Friday posted a 3% increase in its net profit at 309.95 crore in the quarter ended December 31, 2019 helped by drop in fuel and other input costs.

In a filing to the BSE, the Kolkata-headquartered firm’s net revenue stood at 2,848.34 crore, up 2% from the year-ago period. The company said cement sales went up 6% to 5.98 million ton from 5.64 million ton recorded in the corresponding quarter of the previous year.

“With continuous focus on premium brand segment and reduction in fuel and other input costs, the EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) and net profit of the company increased during the quarter ended 31st December, 1920,” Shree Cement said in a statement.
