ACC, the building materials arm of the diversified Adani Group, announced the financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2022.

Operational Highlights:
  • During the quarter ended September 30, 2022, Cement Volume grew by 4% as compared to the same quarter last year. Ready Mix Concrete performed well with a volume growth of ~10% over the same quarter last year.
  • With a focus on operational excellence and unlocking potential, ACC has accelerated de-bottlenecking of various plants and improvement in efficiencies. Alternative fuels and raw materials (AFR) platforms are being leveraged to maximize usage of wastes to reduce power and fuel cost.
Financial Highlights:
  • ACC recorded net sales of ₹ 3,910 crore as compared to ₹3,653 crore in the same quarter last year.
  • EBITDA for the quarter ended September 30, 2022, stood at ₹16 crore largely due to steep rise in fuel cost.
“The post-monsoon quarter will see the traditional rebound for the cement sector, including for ACC. We have had significant cost pressures in the recent past due to steep fuel price rise. However, recent cooling off in energy costs will impact us positively in the coming quarters. said B. Sridhar, Whole Time Director & CEO, ACC Limited. “During the quarter, ACC recorded strong growth in RMX volume of 10% and RMX business remains a huge growth engine for future. We have aggressive growth plans and our capacity expansion initiative through our new greenfield projects at Ametha is progressing well and is expected to be commissioned by March 2023.”
