MaxVIL Business Updates

 

Max Ventures & Industries Limited (MaxVIL), a part of India’s leading multi-business conglomerate, Max Group, announced its financial results today. The company operates two core businesses – Real Estate & Specialty Packaging Films.

 

The company’s specialty films vertical – MSFL continue to post strong performance with recording its highest ever quarterly revenue & EBITDA during Q1FY22. MSFL’s revenue increased by 46% YoY, EBITDA increased by 76% YoY while margins expanded by 380 bps YoY to 22.2% on the back of strong demand accelerated by the shift towards sustainable solutions, recyclable, and value-added specialty films products.

 

The company’s real estate vertical – Max Estates witnessed improved flow of enquiries for leasing as lockdown restrictions were relaxed from the second half of Q1FY22. While company continues to positively engage with new prospective tenants, it expects the leasing to pick up in coming quarters as economy unlocks and restrictions are further relaxed.

 

After significantly leasing out Max Towers, Max Estates focus currently remains on leasing Max House Okhla Phase 1 and continue the timebound construction of Max Square. Max Estates has also been actively evaluating land parcels for its new commercial & residential projects, closure of which has been slightly delayed due to lockdowns. Company hopes to announce these new projects in FY22.

 

Going ahead, company expects MSFL to continue the strong performance on the back of sustained demand, better product mix and rising preference towards sustainable, recyclable, and packaged products. In Real Estate business – company expects leasing to gain traction in coming quarters while foraying into residential business will open a new set of opportunities and help Max Estates move towards becoming one of the top multi asset class real estate developers in the Delhi-NCR region.

 

Commenting on the performance, Sahil Vachani, MD & CEO of MaxVIL said, “Q1FY22 proved to be yet another record quarterly performance for our packaging films business posting its highest ever quarterly revenue & EBITDA. Sustained demand, enhanced specialty product mix and sustainability led initiatives led to this strong performance in our packaging films business. Our packaging films business is expected to continue the robust performance with strong focus on sustainable & recyclable products with improving share of value-added specialty films.

 

Leasing momentum at our commercial real estate business was impacted due to stringent lockdown restrictions during the first half of Q1FY22 due to second wave of covid-19. As the quarter progressed, we witnessed increased enquiries for leasing as economy started unlocking again. We expect commercial real estate business activity to resume in coming months as lockdowns restrictions are eased while foraying into residential business will allow to us to expand our footprint, create future growth opportunities and enhance shareholder value.”
