Taking into consideration the consolidated financials for the quarter, revenue was reported at Rs 1,060 crore, increasing by 41 per cent YoY.

The gross margin, however, slipped by 280 bps to 42 per cent in Q1FY21 from 45 per cent in the June quarter of FY20 owing to the change in business mix of export, domestic, and Isagro.

Looking forward, the business outlook remains robust, given that the company plans to launch two new products in the second or third quarter of the current financial year.
