Prataap Snacks Ltd (PSL), a leading Indian snack food company, announced its financial results for the half-year ended September 30, 2017.

In the first half (H1) of financial year (FY) 2018, the company reported the following:
    • Total income of Rs 4,956 million, higher by 15 per cent year-on-year (y-o-y)

    • EBITDA margins expanded from 4.68 per cent to nine per cent

    • Earnings per share (EPS) (diluted) for the period was Rs 10.85 (not annualised)
Commenting on the H1 FY18 performance, Amit Kumat, managing director and chief executive officer, Prataap Snacks Limited, said, “It gives me immense pleasure to share the maiden financial and operating performance of Prataap Snacks as a listed entity.”

“In H1 of FY18, despite temporary headwinds due to Goods and Services Tax (GST) implementation, the company has delivered a 15 per cent growth in revenues,” he added.

“We continue to expand our distribution network and range of products. We are in the process of commercialising our entry into sweet snacks, through the launch of Yum-pie, which will complement our offerings in the savoury segment,” Kumat said.

“Currently, the company is navigating the potato supply crunch and increased duties on inputs (palm oil), but we are hopeful of a recovery to end the financial year on track with our expectations,” he added.
