Management Comment:

Commenting on the Company’s performance, Ms. Khushboo Chandrakant Doshi, Managing Director, Rajoo Engineers Ltd said:

“We have closed the last quarter of FY24 on a strong note in terms of our operational efficiencies. During the fourth quarter, we registered a revenue of Rs. 52.68 crore. EBITDA and PAT grew 38.45% and 31.35% YoY to Rs. 8.96 crore and Rs. 7.08 crore, respectively. While delays in product lifting & dispatches hampered the quarter’s revenue, our intensive efforts bolstered by a larger sales team, to explore new territories helped increase revenue during the year. A revival in demand for sheet extrusion lines and thermoformers also helped boost growth. Improvements in capacity utilization & other operational efficiencies also helped improve margins.

This resurgence coincides with encouraging global capital expenditure trends within the industry. Over the past 18 months, the company has experienced a substantial uptick in both inquiries and orders, attributing to a surge in revenue during FY24. This positive momentum underscores the effectiveness of the company’s strategic initiatives and highlights its ability to capitalize on emerging opportunities in the market. 

As we move forward, we strive to continue our growth momentum through robust product offerings and a strong market position. With a positive outlook for both domestic and export markets, we are confident in securing substantial orders from high−growth regions, aligning with our expectations.

Rajoo Engineers remains steadfast in sustaining its growth trajectory and reinforcing its market presence. We are assured that our unwavering dedication to quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction will persist as the cornerstone of our achievements. I would like to thank each member of the Rajoo family, as well as our Clients, Creditors, Banks, Financial Institutions, and all other Stakeholders. Their faith in us and support extended makes it easier for us to strive and excel.”
