Depreciation grew by 35.3% Y-o-Y to 40,319 crore in FY23 ($ 4.9 billion) from 29,797 Cr in FY22 due to an expanded asset base across all the businesses and higher network utilization in digital services business.

“Implementation of our New Energy giga factories at Jamnagar is making significant progress. This puts us on track to achieve our goals of transitioning to cleaner energy and enabling sustainable growth. I believe Reliance’s significant investments and strategic partnerships in the renewable energy vertical will help transform the energy landscape of India and the world, in the coming years," said Mukesh D. Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director, Reliance Industries.

Reliance Industries said that the Oil & Gas business saw a staggering 126.9% YoY rise in Q4FY23 to 4,556 crore and a 144.3% YoY rise in EBITDA to 3,801 crore. In Q4FY23, RIL's O2C division posted a record EBITDA of 16,293 crore, up 14.4%. However, the segment's quarterly sales fell by 11.8% YoY to 128,633 crore. “O2C segment posted its highest-ever operating profit despite global uncertainties and disruptions in commodity trade flows. Our oil and gas segment also delivered very strong growth and is now poised to contribute nearly 30% of India’s domestic gas production," said Mukesh D. Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director, Reliance Industries.

Parul Rao, Research Analyst, SAMCO Securities said “Reliance Industries seems to be hitting all the right nerves across its businesses during the January-March period ie. Q4FY ‘23. Despite being topline flat YoY, the company posted its highest-ever quarterly profits of 19,299 crores, a jump of 19% YoY. The consumer-facing business took a front seat and drove the earnings. The company maintains a positive outlook across the O2C chain-driven business. The Oil & Gas segment is poised to be a source of significant value and sustained earnings growth in the coming years. Reliance Jio is expected to continue its leadership position with a healthy subscriber base and new offerings. Going ahead, the retail segment is positioned for strong growth as the company has been bolstering its portfolio through acquisitions and expansion. The listing of Jio Financial services will unlock new opportunities for investors."

The shares of Reliance Industries closed today on the NSE at 2,351 apiece level, up by 0.21% from the previous close of 2,346.05. The stock recorded a total traded volume of 35,29,236 shares compared to a 20-Day average volume of 66,65,605 shares.

Commenting on the technical outlook of the stock post-Q4 earnings, Pavitraa Shetty, Co-owner, Tips2trades said “Considering a very high inflationary environment that companies have endured over the past 2 quarters, an improvement in operating margins for Reliance industries in their Q4FY23 results is an extremely positive development. Steady growth in Jio & retail business with the impending demerger announcement as well indicates limited downside to the stock price probably till support of 2310 on the Daily charts. A daily close above resistance of 2378 could lead to targets of 2440-2495 in the coming days."
