Commenting on the results, Mr. Deepak Jalan, Managing Director, Linc Limited said:
“I am pleased with the all-round performance during the quarter. In spite of schools & colleges continuing to remain closed most of the quarter due to Covid restrictions, our revenue has grown sequentially as well as YoY. With colleges starting to open in a few states and a few other schools & colleges slated to open in most of the other states, we expect strong growth in demand for our products in the coming quarters. In spite of heightened raw material prices, we were able to improve our Gross Margins due to a better sales mix.
EBITDA margins also improved handsomely YoY but fell QoQ due to the impact of an increase in GST rates and the company restarting its marketing efforts in anticipation of the opening of schools and colleges. We however continue to focus on increasing the share of higher-margin products to improve our gross margins. Our relentless focus on increasing sales touchpoints also continues as we continue to add touchpoints.”
