We have grown faster than the Industry,” said Anuj Talwar, Jt. Managing Director, TACL.
The company reported EBITDA of Rs 21.1 crore in the quarter under review as against Rs. 11.7 crores in the third quarter of 2019-20.
Despite partial rollback of cost saving initiatives, EBITDA margins grew 399 basis points Y-o-Y on account of higher utilisation of capacities and better product mix, Talbros said.
