EKI Energy Services Limited, also popularly known as EnKing International, has reported significant growth of 127.3 per cent in its net profit after tax (PAT) to Rs 81.25 crore on Q-o-Q basis during the second quarter of FY2022, on the back of higher demand and pricing of carbon credits, increasing global awareness of GHG emissions and widening carbon credit demand-supply gap.

The net profit of the company, one of the leading companies in the carbon credit industry in India, stood at Rs 35.74 crore during the first quarter of FY2022. However, it had a net profit of Rs 18.58 crore in the entire 2020-21 fiscal.

Moreover, the total revenue of the company, too, grew by 129.3 per cent to Rs 443.68 crore, during the quarter under review, against Rs 193.49 crore in Q1 FY2022.

During H1 FY2022, the company has reported total revenues of Rs 637 crore, exceeding revenue for full-year FY 2021 at Rs 191.02 crore.

Commenting on the business performance, Chairman and Managing Director, Manish Dabkara, said “EKI Energy has reported another outstanding quarter with robust business performance. This strong growth is supported by growing global carbon credit demand, increasing net-zero commitments by various countries and voluntary emission reduction pledges by corporates. During H1 FY22 our margins jumped to 24.6% as compared to 13.3% in FY21 supported by higher carbon pricing and effective cost control measures. Considering the higher demand for carbon credits and a widening demand-supply gap in the global markets, we had entered in a major deal to purchase carbon credits in H1 FY22.

As part of our business strategy of continuous expansion across different geographies and industries, we are also exploring new avenues of business. EKI Energy is exploring attractive business opportunities arising from the proposed Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA). The scheme is applicable from 2021 and voluntary for all countries until 2027 but many countries including the US and China have already implemented the scheme and other countries to follow in the near term. The implementation of CORSIA will increase global carbon credit demand substantially and will increase the demand-supply gap further.

With improving market dynamics, the current carbon offsetting demand is sustainable and expected to increase in future. We are positively looking forward to the scheduled COP26, which is expected to bring more stringent guidelines to control emission and increase emission reduction targets. The increasing awareness for reduction in global emissions and collective efforts of various regulatory bodies is expected to increase the pricing and scope of carbon pricing instruments over time.

Going forward, with strong business fundamentals, higher demand for carbon credits supported by evolving global carbon credit markets and economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, we are confident of continuing strong growth momentum and maximizing shareholder value.”

After posting robust financial performance, the company’s shares at the Bombay Stock Exchange hits a 52-week high at Rs 4536.25 apiece on Wednesday.
