Amit Dahanukar, chairman and managing director, Tilaknagar Industries said, “Inflationary pressures are prevalent in the industry as a whole, especially on the raw material front. Notwithstanding that, we have been able to expand our margins due to a sustained premiumisation trend and other cost optimisation initiatives. In the nine-month period ended December 2023, our Ebitda margin expanded to 13.3 per cent, in comparison to 11.6 per cent in the same period of FY23.”
Tilanknagar Industries’ Earnings Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) stood at Rs 51.4 crore in the quarter under review as against Rs 40.6 crore in the same period last year.

As part of its strategy, Tilaknagar Industries aims to meet need gaps, across price points, in the brandy category. The launch of its latest premium offering, Mansion House Chambers, in Puducherry, is in line with this endeavour. With this recent unveiling, the company now has 5 offerings across price points in Puducherry in the brandy category and intends to replicate this move, across states.
As on December 31, 2023, Tilaknagar Industries net-debt stood at Rs 119 crore, down by Rs 63 crore from Rs 182 crore as of March 31, 2023. In January 2024, CRISIL assigned a rating of A-/Stable to Tilaknagar Industries, a move that could potentially lead to a further reduction in interest rates for the company in the near future.
The company expects to be near net debt-free by March 2025.
