Thank you, Vikram. Welcome to all the stakeholders of Pennar Industries to the Second Quarter Investor Conference Call. We closed a good quarter, we've been able to record growth in most of our revenue verticals. We're quite happy with the performance we have delivered in this quarter. I would like to request Mr. P.V. Rao, our Joint Managing Director, to brief us about the overall financial performance of the company.
Potluri Venkateswara Rao
Good morning, everybody. We started the financial year on a strong note, with a good set of Q1 numbers. Our net revenue is INR541.4 crores and if it is compared to the last year corresponding quarter, it was INR466.5 crore. So there is a increase of growth of about 16% year-on-year. And EBITDA is INR55.2 crores compared to INR45.6 crore in the corresponding quarter previous year. So there is a increase in the margin of 10.2%. The profit after tax after minority interest is INR16.5 crores compared to the corresponding quarter PAT about INR13.1 crores, so there is an increase of INR25.8 crore year-on-year. During this quarter, we received steady orders across business verticals such as building products, tubes, solar, railways, industrial components and pre-engineered buildings. The order book for the pre-engineered buildings stands at INR554 crores as on June 30, 2019. The order book for water treatment and chemical segment is INR86 crores. We have reasonable backlog for other segments also building products, tubes and solar, since they are short cycle projects. So we are not telling what is the backlog for that. But, yes, we have a positive outlook for the rest of the year.
So with that, we would like to hand over to the moderators for any questions that they have with respect to the company's performance or any other aspects or any of the recent corporate action that's been completed a merger or something else as well. Thank you.
