Key Financial Highlights

Q1 FY 2016-17 (As per Ind-AS)

Mahanagar Gas Limited (MGL) has reported a 19.1% increase in its Profit After Tax of Rs.92.73 crores for the quarter ended 30 June, 2016, compared to Rs.77.87 crores for the quarter ended 30 June, 2015.

Sales/ Income from operations is reported at Rs.530.70 crores as compared with Rs.562.28 crores in the corresponding quarter of the previous financial year. The reduction is mainly due to a reduction in the selling prices of both CNG and PNG, in view of lower input gas cost. Earnings have increased to Rs.9.39 per share for Q1 2016-17, from Rs.7.88 per share for Q1 2015-16.

Commenting on the results, Mr. Rajeev Mathur, Managing Director, said, “This is the first quarterly earnings release after the company listed in July 2016. We are happy to report an all- round progress in terms of sales volumes, profits and earnings per share. Among other things, additions to our customer base and a reduction in gas costs has helped us achieve an improvement in our financial performance as compared to the corresponding quarter of the previous financial year.”
