Speaking on the occasion, Mr. J.C. Sharma, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, SOBHA Limited said, “This was also the first quarter where the new accounting standard of IND AS 115 was followed by the company, which uses the project completion method instead of the existing percentage completion method. While some fluctuations in reporting the income are expected, there is no impact on the company’s cash flow or income tax liability, as the company continues to follow percentage completion method under Income Computation and Disclosure Standards (ICDS) for income tax purpose. In other words, it is a compliance requirement which will not have any impact on the overall business of the company. We are confident that on completion of some of the ongoing projects in this financial year, the overall income growth momentum will be maintained.”
Commenting further, he said, “Our contracts vertical has also witnessed a noticeable progress, with the order book at an all-time high in this quarter. Additionally, our operating margins have also shown improvement.”
Mr. Sharma further added, “More importantly, the overall market scenario is beginning to look better with demand picking up across all regions and segments. This is despite a slight increase in the interest rates on home loans due to increase in repo rates by RBI.”
SOBHA’s superior execution capability is its core strength. Since inception, SOBHA has completed real estate projects and contractual projects covering about 96.48 million square feet of area. The Company currently has ongoing real estate projects aggregating to 38.48 million square feet of developable area and 26.20 million square feet of saleable area, and ongoing contractual projects aggregating to 9.08 million square feet under various stages of construction. The Company has a real estate presence in 9 cities, viz. Bangalore, Gurgaon, Chennai, Pune, Coimbatore, Thrissur, Calicut, Cochin and Mysore.
