BENGALURU: Inox Leisure Limited (Inox) reported almost quadrupling (3.87 times) of profit after tax (PAT) for the year ended 31 March 2016 (FY-2016, current year). The company reported PAT of Rs 77.49 crore (5.8 per cent margin on total income from operations or TIO) in the current year as compared to the Rs 20.04 crore (2 per cent margin on TIO) in the previous year.

Note: The unit of currency in this report is the Indian rupee - Rs (also conventionally represented by INR). The Indian numbering system or the Vedic numbering system has been used to denote money values. The basic conversion to the international norm would be:

(a) 100,00,000 = 100 lakh = 10,000,000 = 10 million = 1 crore.

(b) 10,000 lakh = 100 crore = 1 arab = 1 billion.

PAT for the quarter ended 31 March 2016 (Q4-2016, current quarter) was 16.12 crore (5.6 per cent margin on TIO). During the corresponding quarter of the previous year, the company had reported a loss of Rs 4.06 crore, while PAT in the immediate trailing quarter was 3.3 per cent lower at Rs 15.60 crore (4.6 per cent margin on TIO).
