Financial Performance Highlights: Q1 FY2022
- Total income of ₹420 crores, growth of 64% on Y-o-Y basis
- EBITDA of ₹65 crores, growth of 128% on Y-o-Y basis with EBITDA margins of 15.4%

The Packaging Products Division saw increased volumes and demand for glass bottles from alcohol, food, and beverages on a YoY basis. As a result, EBIT margins improved from 8.9% in Q1 FY21 to 13.3% in Q1 FY22. The margins were driven by higher sales, better product mix, and operational efficiencies at the plants.
Commenting on the quarterly results, Sandip Somany, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, HSIL Limited, said, “The first quarter of the fiscal year started on a subdued note due to the second wave of Covid-19. In addition, the top line was impacted as state-wise lockdowns resulted in muted demand from key end-user industries such as alcohol, food, and beverages in the packaging segment and lower demand from the construction & infrastructure sector impacting the building products segment. During the quarter, we continued to focus on maintaining higher operational efficiencies and our cost control measures.”
He further added, “We bounced back quickly from lockdown 1.0 and delivered strong growth in FY 2021. In the near term, we are optimistic that economic recovery is expected to normalize the demand, and going ahead, we will deliver profitable and sustainable growth.”
At HSIL, the focus on manufacturing excellence is a core pillar of business sustainability, recognized and appreciated by the industry.
