Accordingly, the figures for the periods up to June 30, 2017 are not strictly relatable to those after that. As per the additional information provided by Desai, revenues for its transformer and specialty oil segment increased 12.3 percent year on year to Rs 484.06 crore in the quarter, up from Rs 431.02.
Lubricants maker Tide Water Oil Co. (India) Ltd. reported its first-quarter net profit surged about 44 percent year on year to Rs 23.4 crore (Rs 234.2 million or U.S. $3.3 million), driven by higher sales.
