  • How city gas distribution companies fared in Q1FY20##How city gas distribution companies fared in Q1FY20


    After the dismal performance in the December quarter, the first quarter of the financial year 2019-20 took some breather and city gas distribution (CGD) companies reported good earnings in the quarter.

For Gujarat Gas, EBITDA per unit expanded substantially to Rs 5.6, a rise of 33 percent year-over-year and up 30 percent quarter-over-quarter. It was a similar story for Mahanagar Gas, which saw an increase of 24 percent YoY and 28 percent QoQ at Rs10.1, reporting record-high margins.
