The company’s EBITDA increased to Rs 3,617 crore from Rs 2,557 crore in the year-ago period, registering a significant growth of 41.45%, helped by doubling of consumer electronics profits. “4QFY21 was a landmark quarter for the business with quarterly revenue and EBITDA at an all- time high despite lesser than normative operating conditions,” the company said. For FY21, EBITDA stood at Rs 9,789 crore compared to an EBITDA of Rs 9,683 crore in the previous financial year. The firm said that the growth was “driven by the gradual rebound of revenue streams, judicious cost management initiatives and boosted by higher investment income.” EBITDA margin rose to 8.8% during the quarter from 7.4% in Q4FY20.

While higher sales of Jio devices boosted growth of the electronics consumer segment, the grocery segment “hit its all time high revenues” during the quarter, the firm claimed.
