Balaji Amines slips 6%, hits 52-week low on disappointing Q3 results


Shares of Balaji Amines hit a 52-week low of Rs 2,161.35, falling 6 per cent on the BSE in Tuesday’s intra-day trade, after the company reported a weak operational performance in the December quarter. The consolidated earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization (Ebitda) declined 582 bps to 22.14 per cent, with the company attributing the fall in operating margin to de-growth in the pharma and API sector.


In Q3FY23, the company’s revenue from operations grew 3.48 per cent to Rs 588 crore from Rs 569 crore in Q3FY22. Total sales volumes were up 2.02 per cent at 28,147 MT for Q3FY23 as against 27,589 MT in Q3FY22. Profit after tax declined by 17.5 per cent to Rs 83.79 crore as against Rs 101.59 crore in the year ago quarter.


Balaji Amines is a leading manufacturer of aliphatic amines & specialty chemicals in India, specialized in manufacturing of methyl amines, ethyl amines, derivatives of amines and other specialty chemicals.

In the past three months, the stock has declined 30 per cent, as compared to 1 per cent fall in the S&P BSE Sensex. It has corrected 44 per cent from its 52-week high of Rs 3,842, touched on September 15, 2022.

However, the management said revenues from the newly commenced plants will start contributing to the company’s top line from coming quarters, which, in turn, can improve the margin profile of the company from Q1FY24.

“Di-methyl Carbonate (DMC) is used in Pharma and in the production of Polycarbonate and Lithium Batteries – the consumption of which will grow exponentially in India backed by various government initiatives and electric vehicle (EV) industry being a sunrise industry in the years to come,” the management said.
