Shares of MTAR Technologies tumbled 16.10% in early trade on Wednesday, hitting nearly a two-month low of 1,730 apiece, following the company's release of weak financial results for the quarter ending in March. 

After market hours on Tuesday, the company reported a 53.4% drop in consolidated net profit to 4.9 crore, compared to 10.4 crore in the same period last year.

Revenue from operations for Q4 FY24 stood at 143.0 crore, marking a 20.8% increase from 118.4 crore in Q3 FY24. However, EBITDA for Q4 FY24 was 18.2 crore, a 23.6% decrease from 23.9 crore in Q3 FY24.

For the full fiscal year FY24, profit after tax stood at 56.1 crore, a 45.7% decrease from 103.4 crore in FY23. Revenue from operations for FY24 was 580.8 crore, a 1.2% increase from 573.8 crore in FY23. EBITDA for FY24 came in at 112.7 crore, down 26.8% from 154.0 crore in FY23.

The company's order book as of March 31, 2024, stood at 915 crore, a decrease from 1,172.9 crore at the same time last year.

Commenting on the results, Mr. Parvat Srinivas Reddy, Managing Director & Promoter, MTAR Technologies, said, “We have registered a lower-than-estimated EBITDA in FY24 as the operating leverage was lower due to deferment of orders in the Clean Energy segment and delay in execution of projects in the Space vertical.

We are targeting to achieve a 30%–35% YoY increase in revenues with an EBITDA of 22% +/-100 bps in FY 25.
