For the entire fiscal year FY24, PAT rose by 14.2% to Rs. 181.01 crore compared to Rs. 158.48 crore in FY23.

Operational and strategic achievements

Senco Gold Ltd Managing Director & CEO Suvankar Sen highlighted several milestones for FY24, including the company's successful listing on the BSE and NSE on 14th July 2023.

The IPO was oversubscribed impressively, and the funds raised were strategically used for working capital.

The company invested over Rs. 38.23 crore in new store capex and capacity building, aligning with its pan-India growth strategy.

The increase in gold prices, higher wedding sales, and a rise in old gold exchange contributed to a total revenue growth of 28.5% and a retail revenue growth of 25%.

Senco Gold Ltd CFO Sanjay Banka elaborated on the financial performance, underscoring a 17% growth in both showroom count and retail space.

The company's Same Store Sales Growth (SSSG) stood at 19%, reflecting strong consumer demand and market penetration.

The consolidated EBITDA margin improved, and the company's PAT grew despite higher finance costs due to lease accounting impacts.
