Reliance Industries reports 14 per cent higher YoY PAT for Q1-2015

BENGALURU: Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) reported 7.2 per cent growth in consolidated operating revenue in Q1-2015 to reach Rs 107905 crore on a y-o-y basis. The company’s y-o-y PAT jumped 13.7 per cent in Q1-2015 to Rs 5957 crore.

Two of the smallest contributors to RIL revenue – organised retail and others – which include its mobile, 4G services, internet, tower and television segments are covered in this report. The company’s other segment has reported 1.8 per cent lower revenue in Q1-2015 at Rs 1772 crore as compared to the Rs 1804 crore in Q4-2014 and slightly lower than the Rs 1775 crore in Q1-2014. The performance details of this segment have not been indicated by the company.

The Reliance organised retail juggernaut continues to roll on, going from strength to strength. A few years ago the Indian behemoth had announced its foray into the then estimated Rs 3 lakh crore size Indian retail market with planned investments of Rs 25,000 crore.

This quarter Q1-2015, RIL reported revenue from its organised retail segment at Rs 3999 crore which was 14.5 per cent higher than the Rs 3492 crore in the year ago quarter and 9.5 per cent higher than the Rs 3653 crore in the immediate trailing quarter Q4-2014. And the segment has reported operating profit (EBIDTA) in Q1-2015 at Rs 81 crore which is more than three times (3.38 times) the Rs 24 crore in the last quarter, as opposed to a loss of Rs 0.4 crore in Q1-2014.
