Revenue, EBITDA and PAT grew by 26%, 39% and 98% respectively led by robust volume growth of 18.7% on the back of early onset of summer. Volume sales stood at 17.97 Cr cases vs 15.14 Cr cases in Q1CY21. Revenue contribution for CSD, Juice and PDW stood at 70%, 7.2% and 22.8% respectively. PAT almost doubled to 694 Cr from 329 Cr driven by lower interest expense, lower cost of borrowings and higher margins.
