Square Textiles Quarterly Profits Grow 945% As Sales, Margin Jump


Square Textiles Ltd registered a staggering 945% growth in profit for the first three months of the current fiscal year, thanks to an increase in sales and profit margin. The profit in the July-September period of this year alone was equal to two-thirds of what the listed textile company earned over the entire 2020-21 fiscal year.

The company’s earnings per share (EPS) shot up to Tk 2.30 in the quarter, which was only Tk 0.22 in the same quarter of 2020 and Tk 3.41 over the 2020-21 fiscal year. The profit jump was caused by increased production and price of the yarn it produces, the company said in its disclosure.
