New Delhi, 12th August, 2017: DLF Limited recorded consolidated revenues of Rs 2,211 crore for the period ended 30th June, 2017, up by 9% from Rs 2,025 crore in previous financial year. EBIDTA stood at Rs 1,067 crore, reflecting an increase of 18% from Rs 903 crore. Net profit stood at Rs 110 crore, as compared to Rs 261 crore in Q1FY17. The EPS for the quarter stood at Rs 0.62.

Last quarter saw the roll out of the Real Estate Regulatory Act “RERA” across the country post notification by the Central Government in November 2016. Uncertainty in the operations continued in the industry as each State Government followed a different time-table for adoption of the Central law, including the subsequent enactment of the Rules.

The introduction of GST, from July 1, also added to the uncertainty resulting in elongation of sales cycle. Back-end integration challenges continued as it was dependent upon the timing of the GST registrations of the vendors also. The Company is fully compliant with GST regime.

Despite growth in the economy, the demand for residential real estate continues to be soft. Implementation of RERA and GST has continued to elongate the sales cycle. The Company expects that sector would achieve normalcy over next 2-3 quarters.

With reduction in benchmark interest rate by RBI this month and markets guiding towards further softness in interest rate, the sector should witness a recovery soon. The Company shall have a healthy pipeline of finished inventory for sale in foreseeable future when the demand returns.

The transaction for sale of CCPS in DCCDL is in advanced stages of discussion.

The demand for office leasing space continues to be good. Development of two new towers in Chennai SEZ is expected to be completed in FY18 while development of Cyber Park, Gurgaon is expected to be completed in FY19.
