Mumbai: Lubes maker Gulf Oil Lubricants has reported a 29 per cent rise in profit after tax to Rs 80.74 crore in the December 2023 quarter.
Gulf Oil Lubricant delivered a PAT of Rs 62.65 crore in the same quarter of 2022, the company said in a statement.
The company's revenue from operations for the third quarter of this fiscal increased 4.63 per cent to Rs 817.26 crore from Rs 781.10 crore in the year-ago period, it added.
The company said it also delivered the highest-ever quarterly EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) at Rs 111.06 crore during the period under review, 23.38 per cent higher compared to Rs 90.02 crore a year ago.
Strong momentum was maintained during the quarter, and a good uptick in volume was majorly driven by growth in agri and PCMO (passenger car motor oil), Gulf Oil said.

This quarter witnessed a significant elevation in brand investments, he said, adding that in a series of sustainability initiatives, the company will enhance its solar power capacity at both plants by June-July 2024.
