Commenting on the results, Jayakumar Krishnaswamy, Managing Director, Nuvoco Vistas Corp. Ltd. said, “In spite of the countrywide lockdown, the Company achieved exceptional volume growth in the quarter ended June 30, 2021. With a thrust on innovation and premium products, leveraging synergy benefits between Nuvoco and NU Vista, as well as a strong focus on cost efficiencies contributed to an overall improvement in the consolidated EBITDA margin of 24%."

Avinash Gorakshkar, Head of Research at Profitmart Securities said, "If I look at the current numbers, the company seems to have done well by logging Q1 profit to the tune of near 115 crore. As economy is unfolding, the cement company is expected to get better revenue in the second half of FY2021-22. Today, we can expect some rise in the counter as people were waiting for its results after tepid listing."
