In FY24, AGI Greepac reported revenue from operations of ₹2421 crore, compared to ₹2281 crore in FY23, registering a growth of 6% on a y-o-y basis.

AGI Greenpac Limited, a focused packaging products company, has announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ending March 31, 2024.  

In FY24, the company reported revenue from operations of ₹2421 crore, compared to ₹2281 crore in FY23, registering a growth of 6% on a y-o-y basis. The company delivered EBITDA of ₹588 crore over ₹488 crore last year, registering a growth of 21% on a y-o-y basis with a margin of 24%. 

The company’s PBT stood at ₹340 crore, compared to ₹304 crore in FY23, registering a growth of 12% on y-o-y basis. The company made investments towards a high-end specialty state-of-the-art plant and began commercial production in January 2023. This resulted in increased interest and depreciation expenses in FY24.

In Q4 FY24, the company reported revenue from operations of ₹625 crore, EBITDA of ₹156 crore, and PBT at ₹89 crore. The EBITDA y-o-y was influenced by two factors: the receipt of other income of ₹15.65 crore in Q4FY23 and adjustments made towards sales realization of certain product categories in response to a drop in raw material prices during FY24.

The company’s consistent performance was driven by a combination of factors. Firstly, meeting the growing demand for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages played a pivotal role. Secondly, significant enhancements in internal efficiencies boosted operational effectiveness. Thirdly, a steadfast commitment to cultivating customer loyalty further solidified the Company’s position in the market. Additionally, prioritizing high-value-added products and an emphasize on a premium mix further fortified the Company’s profitability.

Commenting on the results, Sandip Somany, chairman and managing director, AGI Greenpac, said, Our consistent year-on-year growth reflects our unwavering focus on innovation, operational efficiencies, the introduction of new products, and a premium product mix. I am happy with our ability to not only meet but exceed expectations in challenging market conditions. The successful addition of capacity through debottlenecking in FY24 to meet increased demand underscores our commitment to operational excellence and customer satisfaction. Looking ahead, I am confident in our continued success and growth.”

AGI Greenpac manufactures and markets various packaging products, including glass Containers and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles & products and security caps & closures. Its packaging products division has seven plants in India, located across Telangana, Uttarakhand, and Karnataka.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
