The Indian solar glass manufacturer’s Q3 FY 2021 revenues stood at INR 140 crore, a 23% increase over INR 114 crore recorded in the previous quarter.
In all, the manufacturer earned net revenue of around INR 300 crore during the nine months ended December 2020, a 74.3% rise over the corresponding period in the previous year.
The company acknowledged increased demand from the customers in export markets, given lower availability from China and Malaysia.
“More geographies are getting added to the customers. Exports comprise about 16.1% of overall sales. We are restricting orders in both domestic and export markets in view of limited availability,” it stated.
Borosil Renewables produced at near full capacity of 450 tonnes per day during Q3 FY2021. Thinner glass (lower than 3.2 mm), which is required for bifacial modules, accounted for about 25% of the quarterly sales volume.
With rising sales, the company is expanding its capacity from 450 tons per day to 950 tons per day by adding a third solar glass line of 500 tons per day along with processing facilities. The expansion is expected to cost about INR 500 crore.
The project is proposed to be financed through equity of INR 200 crore, a debt of INR 200 crore, with the balance to be met through internal accruals. Towards this end, the company reported it has successfully raised equity finance of INR 200 crore by way of a qualified institutional placement.
