For the second quarter, revenues looked healthy, above the market’s expectations, but profits took a hit, as Ambani calls out a “complex and challenging operating environment”.
Quick look at the important stuff:
- Made ₹1.4 lakh crores in total (big bump from same time last year), BUT, profits tanked 7.2% YoY to ₹12.3K crores
- Oil-to-chemicals made nearly ₹1 lakh crores, 75% up YoY
- Retail revenues, up 19% YoY
- Jio platforms, largely unaffected by COVID — added 14.3 million new subs
Management says the old school oil-to-chemicals business is already back to pre-COVID levels of demand and profitability, but with consumer footfall still trending low, the retail empire is gonna be choppy short term.
Markets weren’t too enthralled — but everyone deserves a pass for once.
