Oil-to-telecom conglomerate Reliance Industries Ltd yesterday reported its highest quarterly consolidated net profit of Rs 9,108 crore in three-months to June 30 on the back of higher petrochemical margins and one-time gain from sale of African asset.
Net profit in the April-June quarter of current fiscal at Rs 9,108 crore (Rs 30.8 per share) was 28 % higher than Rs 7,113 crore (Rs 24.1 a share) in the same period of the last financial year, RIL said in a statement.
“Strong refining and petrochemicals margin environment contributed to higher operating profits for the quarter,” it said.
Revenue grew 26.7 % to Rs 90,537 crore primarily on account of increase in prices and volumes of refining and petrochemical products, partially offset by lower prices and volumes from oil and gas exploration and production business.
