On a quarterly basis, the bottom-line is expected at PKR 5.1bn (EPS: PKR 3.82), declining by 17% YoY. Net sales are projected to witness a growth of 10% YoY on the back of i) jump in urea and DAP prices by 27% and 41% YoY, respectively, and ii) 3% YoY uptick in DAP offtake. However, urea offtake depleted by 25% YoY.
Gross margins are anticipated to settle at 27.05% in 4QCY22 vs. 32.94% in SPLY owed to a dip in urea offtake.
