Thank you. Rithesh. Good morning, everybody. I welcome you all to the Finolex Industries Q1 FY'20 investors conference call. The sales volume for PVC Pipes & Fittings was at 91,655 metric tons for Q1 FY'20 higher by 18.1%. The sales volume for PVC resin for Q1 FY'20 was at 78,512 metric tons higher by 14.7%. Total revenue was at INR944 crores for this Q1, up 14%, PAT was at INR73 crore in Q1, lower by 29.1% from INR103 crore in Q1 FY'19.
PVC Pipes & Fittings segment witnessed a good volume growth and better results. However, lower PVC/EDC delta due to fall in PVC price and higher EDC price has reduced the margin in PVC segment on YOY basis. I would now like to leave the floor open for questions. Thank you.
