The drop is due to lower crude prices which have a direct impact on key raw materials i.e. PTA & MEG. However, the EBITDA margin is almost the same as compared to the previous period as the variations be it increase or decrease in raw material prices is passed on to customers. Overall, the performance for Q3 FY 19‐20 is good keeping in view the general economic slowdown and competitive environment. We have completed installation of around 75% of our new capacity for texturizing. In the forthcoming quarter, we will have the benefit of additional texturized product which has good export potential. We expect next quarter will be better as the demand for polyester filaments is expected to grow. The abolition of anti‐dumping duty in this budget has given a positive stimulus to the demand and sentiments in the domestic market.
