Consolidated Results - Q3 FY20 • Revenue from operations was at Rs 124.1 crore • EBITDA was at Rs 26.9 crore as against Rs 26.8 crore in Q3FY19 • The EBIDTA Margin scaled up to 26.4% from 19.0% in Q3FY19 • Profit before Tax almost doubled to Rs 6.0 crore (+92.7% growth) Business Update: Although Coronavirus in China is a sad development and we pray for a speedy recovery; we are seeing a surge of global interest in our 'IMPACT' range. The view from the buyer's perspective is to diversify their sourcing from China to India. We believe this disruption will help see a significant boost in export revenue in the coming quarters.

Interlocking vinyl tiles or SPC is the fastest growing flooring segment globally and is estimated to grown the vinyl flooring category from $25 billion in 2020 to $45 billion by 2025. The reason for the tremendous growth is the fast replacement of carpet, laminated and engineered wood is due to ease of installation, ease of maintenance, higher durability and better aesthetics.

With 30 years of manufacturing experience and a timely launched brand in 'IMPACT', Responsive Industries is well positioned to capitalize on the growing global demand. We already boast exports to 65 countries globally and have a vast distributor network and are in a great position to become the leading Indian supplier for global demand. In the third quarter alone, we have added 20 new export relationships for 'IMPACT' and expect to add more key customers in 2020.

Business Strategy: Responsive Industries has focused its strategy on growing the market for interlocking vinyl tiles through the aggressive promotion of the 'IMPACT' brand in both the domestic and export market. We are seeing fast adoption of the new age technology and expect robust export demand coupled with recovering domestic consumption to catapult growth.

Rishabh Agarwal, Non-executive Chairman, Responsive Industries Ltd said: 'Responsive continues to remain cash positive and we are proud of the shift made towards the high-margin business. We are seeing track record of 20% or higher EBIDTA for the last 3 quarters and we expect to keep up the margin profile going forward. We also now expect sales revenue to start improving with revival of both export and domestic demand.” About Responsive Industries Limited (Responsive) Responsive is a leading global manufacturer of vinyl flooring, luxury vinyl tiles & synthetic leather.
