Commenting on the performance, Sailesh Mehta, Chairman & Managing Director, DFPCL, said, ““The company has shown resilience and strategic focus despite the Chemical and Fertilisers segment facing challenges simultaneously. Short-term aberration in the import of fertilizer-grade ammonium nitrate from Russia, low cost Nitroaromatics from China and below normal rainfall in our core markets impacted business performance.  Despite the odds the company has delivered healthy performance with sustained margins, driven by innovation, operational excellence, and sustainability.”

 Mehta also mentioned that we have entered into a 15-year long-term gas supply agreement with Equinor, commencing in May 2026. This move will ensure continuous supplies of Natural Gas and is expected to improve margins through effective natural gas/LNG hedging and in-house ammonia production, ensuring greater stability.

We also signed a Commercial agreement with Haifa Group, a renowned multinational corporation specializing in Specialty Crop Nutrient. The MAL-Haifa offerings will support agricultural practices that counter the vicious trend of water scarcity and also enhance Nutrient Uptake & Use Efficiency in the plants.

For FY 24-25, the demand outlook for all our business segments looks positive. ‘IMD’ has forecasted above average normal rainfall in FY25, expecting a good Kharif and Rabi season this year.
