Earlier this year, Raymond announced the acquisition of a 59.25% stake in Maini Precision Products Limited (MPPL) for 682 crore, financed through a combination of debt and internal resources. This move aims to transform Raymond's engineering division into a major player in engineering, automotive, electric vehicle (EV), aerospace, and defence components.

The acquisition consolidates JK Files, RPAL, and MPPL into a new subsidiary, 'Newco', where Raymond Ltd will hold a 66.3 percent stake. Chairman Gautam Hari Singhania anticipates significant growth opportunities in sectors like aerospace, defence, and EV.

In the March quarter, Raymond reported an 18 percent increase in its net profit driven by robust demand in its real estate segment. Consolidated profit for the three months ending March 31 rose to 229 crore as against 194 crore a year earlier. Revenue from operations also grew by 21 percent during the quarter to 2,608.5 crore.

The company noted significant momentum in its real estate segment, especially following the launch of its inaugural joint development project in Bandra, Mumbai. This segment now contributes 25 percent to the revenue mix, with its revenue more than doubling in the quarter. Meanwhile, the textile segment, the largest in terms of revenue, experienced a modest 2 percent growth due to subdued customer demand and challenging market conditions.

Raymond's Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortisation (EBITDA) margin also expanded to 19.2 percent in Q4FY24, up from 17.3 percent the previous year.
