Additionally, the company's EBITDA as a percentage of revenue has shown consistent improvement, reaching 24.75% in Q2FY24 and 25.20% in 1HFY24. This reflects Shivalik's focus on optimizing its operating leverage.
Mr. Rajeev Ranjan, CFO, commented on the Company's financial performance: "Our growth percentages are a result of our control mechanisms for operating leverage. We maintain a consistent growth trajectory, showcasing a steady growth rate for Q2FY24 where our strong control mechanisms for operating leverage have enabled us to maintain healthy EBIDTA and profit margins reinforcing financial stability. As we complete Q2 and approach the third quarter, a pronounced upswing in market conditions is also expected as we have achieved a 25% growth in the domestic market. Although global headwinds may persist into the next calendar year, we are anticipating that the 10% to 40% growth range will return post-Q4FY24. In addition, we are in advanced discussions in finalisation of volume contracts spanning over the next 2-3 years with some renown Industry names , signalling a promising growth trajectory for the Company in the medium-term."
