Vedanta Ltd's net profit for the March quarter dropped 5% to $7,261 crore, compared to $7,628 crore in the previous fiscal quarter.
Meanwhile, revenue from operations increased by 41% to 39,342 crores during the year under review. In the same period the previous year, the figure was 27,874 crore.
Vedanta shares fell 0.35% on Thursday, closing at 411.20 per share on the NSE. For the fiscal year 2022-23, the Board has authorised the first Interim Dividend of $31.5 per equity share.
In the fourth quarter, Vedanta reported its highest ever consolidated EBITDA of Rs 13,768 crore, up 51% year over year and 26% quarter over quarter. Despite increasing costs of production owing to raw commodity inflation, the gain was mostly attributable to increased sales volume, supporting commodity prices, and operational savings.
