Its ROCE and EBITDA margin, however, stood at -192% and -28% respectively. On a unit level, it spent Rs 1.39 to earn a rupee of operating revenue in FY23.

Caveat: The revenue and losses figures are according to the latest financial statements filed for FY 22-23. The firm posted Rs 486 crore in revenue in its FY22 reporting period. The change is due to changes in the accounting policies.
