The rise in profit was mainly on account of robust growth in healthcare services and pharmacy verticals. Consolidated revenue from operations stood at Rs 2,571.89 crore during the quarter under review as against Rs 2,210.47 crore in the same period a year ago.
"We have made a strong start to the financial year building on the momentum gained last year to deliver steady growth in revenue and margins across all our verticals," Apollo Hospitals Chairman Prathap C Reddy said.
"We are hopeful that our efforts towards having a strong pan-India presence and towards adopting new skills and cutting edge technology should help us in maintaining the momentum going forward as well," he added.
The sentiment was also bullish after global brokerage Macquarie maintained 'outperform' call on the stock with a target at Rs 1,636 per share. It said that the operating performance continues to improve and the steps taken by promoters to resolve leverage situation provides relief.
