Revenue from operations rose to Rs 5,409 crore in the fourth quarter as compared with Rs 4,791 crore in the year-ago period, ACC Ltd said in a regulatory filing.
"The trust of our customers and our commitment to building a sustainable future with investment in efficiency improvements, green power etc. has furthered our success, as we emerge even stronger than before," ACC Ltd CEO Ajay Kapur said.
The company, a unit of Ambuja Cements, said its board has recommended a dividend of Rs 7.5 per share.
ACC said the outlook for the cement industry remains positive based on higher budgetary allocation to infrastructure and construction and government's push for affordable housing, along with green energy transition, demand-supply dynamics, and greater consolidation.
