"The profitability in FY23 was impacted by unprecedented currency devaluation in Egypt and currency exchange loss on account of the US dollar strength against the other world currencies," said Uflex Group CFO Rajesh Bhatia.
Its consolidated revenue from operations was up 11.58 per cent to Rs 14,457.92 crore in FY23.
Commenting on the result Uflex Chairman and Managing Director Ashok Chaturvedi said: "The packaging films industry witnessed new capacity additions at a time when demand was impacted, especially in the US and Europe, on account of global issues."

However, the worst seems to be over, and Uflex is witnessing an increase in both demand and prices globally.
"The European energy crisis also seems to be behind us, and gas prices have slumped," he said.
Uflex is India's largest multinational flexible packaging materials and solution company and a leading global player in Polymer Sciences. It has manufacturing facilities in India, UAE, Mexico, Egypt, USA, Poland, Russia, Nigeria, and Hungary.
Shares of Uflex Ltd on Tuesday settled at Rs 414.55 per scrip on BSE, down 0.53 per cent from the previous close.
