The company's standalone net profit rose 491% YoY from Rs 115.13 crores last year to Rs 679.64 crores this year. Moreover, profits reported a 45.73% growth on a sequential basis. Revenues surged 94.9% YoY and 13.95% QoQ to Rs 9,806.89 crores. Standalone EBITDA grew 4.5 times to Rs 1,008 crores as the EBITDA margin came in at 10.3%.

On a consolidated basis, revenues came in at Rs 10,038 crores while profit for the quarter was Rs 643 crores against Rs 95 crores last year. The consolidated EBITDA margin was 10%, more than 2 times from last year. Total expenses grew 81% to Rs 9,191.79 crores. 

The company opened 10 new stores during the quarter as its e-commerce business- "DMart Ready" improved its position in 12 Indian cities in the quarter. Apparel and General merchandise saw good traction during the quarter but still suffered from the aftereffects of Covid-19-led disruptions and inflationary pressures. 

“Q1 like Q3 is a good revenue as well as profit-enhancing period due to back-to-school/college season and the onset of the monsoons. We ended Q1FY23 with growth across all key financial parameters. There has been a very good recovery in overall sales. However, this quarter's performance is not comparable to the same period last year due to the second wave of Covid-19 during that time,” said Neville Noronha, CEO & MD of ASL. 

The company's stock has grown 16.3% in the past week as it closed at Rs 3,941.70 per share on Friday.
