(14:39, 16 Oct 2020)

Profit before tax (PBT) fell 29.21% year-year (YoY) to Rs 73 crore in Q2 September 2020. Total tax expense fell 41.7% to Rs 14.92 crore in Q2 September 2020 over Q2 September 2019. The result was announced during market hours today, 15 October 2020.

The greenfield project of about 1,50,000 MT for manufacture of various grades of carbon black and 25 MW of co-generation power over 60 acres of land in Tamil Nadu is progressing strategically. Total investment is estimated to be in excess of Rs 600 crore and is expected to be commissioned by 2023. PCBL (TN), a wholly owned subsidiary of Phillips Carbon Black has been incorporated on 29 September 2020.

Further, the company's 7 MW co-generation power plant in Kochi (Kerala) is expected to be commissioned by 2021.

Shares of Phillips Carbon Black were up 3.59% at Rs 135.7 on BSE. The stock fell 3.1% in the past two sessions.

Phillips Carbon Black (PCBL), a part of RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, and one of the leading global players, is India's largest Carbon Black manufacturer with four plants at Durgapur, Palej, Kochi and Mundra.
